TO KEEP the spirit of Kadayawan alive in spite of the pandemic, Dusit Davao is giving homage to the major tribes of the city by celebrating their cuisines for their Festive Eats for Kadayawan at the hotel’s Madayaw Cafe. 

Dusit Davao hotel manager Christoph Kuch and assistant marketing and communications manager Ariesha Faith Dimaano invited members of the media last August 6 for a sampling of unique tribal dishes specially prepared by executive chef Alex Destriza.
