Description: We are a Filipino style eatery with some of the best tasting, most affordable Filipino food in all of Davao. We don't want to say too much, we will let the quality and taste of our food do the talking. Clean family atmosphere with pleasant acoustic guitar background music. Like to see our kitchen? Sure, we ate proud of our kitchen and would love to give you the tour. How many restaurants would openly invite you into their kitchen? Ask and find out. Come and taste the power of the Carabao only at the BluCab Cafe We look forward to see y'all.

Wanted to eat some fish... Search the Internet and gave me luz kinilaw and blue carabao,, I chose blue carabao based on its previous reviews ,, (thinking that I used to go to 'luz' before).
'twas around 2 pm when I went to 'BC' and was surprised to see a lot of food sitting around and looks yummy,,but was disappointed when I saw a few flies acting like drones ,, and the food was cold on a food Warner,, obviously the food warmer wasn't working ,, pls keep the food warm at all times,, not only for the sake of it but because it's supposed to be that way,,

We have talked to this gentleman and have addressed his concerns. We also informed the complainant that we do not have a steam/heat table but a serving table. The food ,by ServSafe standards,is allowed to be on the serving table for {4} four hours before it is to be reheated,we reheat at {3} hours.Most times our food does not stay on the serving table long enough to be reheated as we have many customers thus the food disappears quickly. Any customer can view our kitchen at anytime as we are very proud of the food handling program in place,please feel free.Also,one may ask to see our 'serving table food log book' as it tells the time the food came onto the table and the time it went back into the kitchen to be reheated.
We stand firmly behind the quality and safety of our food and will put our meals up against the finest that Davao City has to offer. No,we are no proud,we are confident.

The best beef ampalaya i've eaten. The place is squeeky clean, food is so affordable. Imagine a grilled "panga" or jaw of tuna for P120 or US$ 3! And to top it all off is the super friendly Canadian owner Francis. Brought home some beef, lumpia and tuna panga and munching on them right now. Still can't wait for my next trip and try out the their kaldereta & seaweed salad.

Great staff. Tasty food. Good price.
Go early because it fills up quickly, and for good reason.
Rub elbows at large tables with locals who know where to eat well for a good price.
The first restaurant I'll return to on my next visit to Davao.
