Merco has become part of the typical Dabawenyo’s choice destinations when it comes to Davao comfort food. Apart from its bakeshop and ice cream station, what made Merco an indelible part of the Davao food culture is its restaurant. Compared with the current roster of restaurants in the city, there’s really nothing ultra-fancy or uber-unique about the dishes at Merco. But somehow, its homey atmosphere makes people return to one of Davao’s food treasures.
Ever since we shared the information that the beloved Davao restaurant has just closed shop, many of our friends on Facebook have expressed surprise and sudden nostalgia. That is why we decided to share some pictures of the dishes and desserts that have made Merco so memorable to Dabawenyos and visitors alike (Some of the pictures come from other bloggers who have shared their dining experiences at Merco).
The Merco takeout counters for cakes and ice cream are still open. Only the dining restaurants were closed.
Goodbye, Merco. Thanks for the memories! 🙂
