Their emblem says it all: “Since 1950”. Indeed, Classic Savory Restaurant has ingrained itself into the hearts of Manilenyos through its wide array of Filipino-Chinese dishes. This legendary restaurant has reached Davao shores, and has set up its home base in SM City Davao.
Wifey and I quickly made a dash towards Classic Savory (pronounced sah-vo-ree) to sample their signature dishes. In order to maximize our food tasting, we settled on their combo meals. We chose a combination of 1/2 fried chicken, pancit canton, and lumpia shanghai. Classic Savory seems to aim towards a no-nonsense and no-frills dining experience. True enough, you will feel like you’re in a very familiar place, like a favorite restaurant or your own dining area at home.
Personally, I have tried better-tasting chicken in Davao restaurants. However, the opening of a Manila-based establishment such as Classic Savory here in Davao City shows a potentially great future for better food choices in the city.

is their lumpia shanghai good?
Mas gusto ko pa rin ang chicken ng Yellow Fin at Papa Chings.
I also loved Classic Savory. Tried all three branches at SM Lanang, Abreeza, and SM City Davao. Not the best but fairly good if you want home cooked goodness with your Filipino/Asian dining experience.
