I am happy to see Davao again. It’s been almost 10 years, I guess, since I first saw Davao. We went there for a conference so we spent most of our time in the hotel. So in our last day, I did not pass the opportunity to go to Lachi’s which is said to be famous for their desserts, especially their sans rival.
It was 3pm when we went there and I think we have this “not local” vibe in us to make the diners look at us almost instantaneously 🙂
We ordered their sans rival (original, durian and coffee), blueberry cheescake and mud pie.
The durian sans rival is, surprisingly, the best variant for me. I’m not really a fan of durian, so this is a surprise for me. Next is the coffee variant. The texture of Lachi’s sans rival is drier compared to the other sans rival that I’ve tried before. The sweetness is just OK. I’m not saying that it is disappointing, but I think I tasted other sans rival that are yummier than this.
This photo of their key lime tart is an injustice considering how YUMMYYYY this is. My friend E and I ordered two pieces for take out. We ate them by the pool area after our dinner so I can’t get a decent photo. Shame on me 😛 But this is such a revelation. A must try for those who will visit Lachi’s. 🙂
