Familiar flavours of home at Sundays Modern Home Cooking

Sundays Modern Home Cooking:

A lot of our Filipino family dinner traditions have become a thing of the past because of the changing times. In today’s Filipino households where both parents go to work and children have frenzied schedules with school, homework and many other extracurricular activities, finding time cooking at home and gather at the table seems to be unworkable.

But with the latest addition of Sundays to Davao food scene, it’s awesome to say, we’ve just found another delicious way to bridge this gap to bring family dinner traditions back. This time with a modern yet familiar fare. 

Sundays food concept caters to home flavour sensibilities of Dabawenyos. It’s a place to find that familiar taste of home you’ve missed too long. Many of what’s on their menu are traditional family recipe that has been pass down from one generation to the next.


And guess what? I was one lucky earthling I got to sample many of the delectable time-honoured dishes and I’m sharing them with you on this blogpost.

When asked why the name Sundays? Len Uy-Bosquit, Sundays owner said that, “It’s a day a family should gather and eat. What we offer is our home favourites, what we cook and do at home we wanted to share it to Dabawenyos. It’s simple comfort food and the familiar flavours of home. It’s a place where kids can start to explore new flavours given our healthy list of food.”

And now join me as we delve into this gastronomic journey tasting the flavours of modern home at Sundays.

First on the table; Sundays' Salad. 

Sundays' Salad
Sundays' Salad

Sundays’ Salad is a beautifully presented order of crispy spring roll wraps, garden greens, grilled chicken, grapes, orange, and avocado stack one after the other. The balsamic-rosemary vinaigrette completes the clean and fresh flavour of this healthy goodness. Oh, did I mention it sits on a rustic wooden tray? So quaint I love it. PhP190

Pomelo Salad

One signature Dabawenyo starter is also on the menu - the Pomelo Salad. It’s a platter of Davao sweet pomelo, green mango, jicama and garnished with garden greens in chilli-honey dressing. PhP180.

I love the idea that a number of their dishes are plated on ‘Sartin’ wares. Does that look and feel familiar to you? That sure prompts food memories of your childhood, at least for generation x and y.

Shrimp and Chorizo Pizza

Sundays also offer a good list of Pizza flavours – Pepperoni and Mushroom, Four Cheese, Hawaiian, Mushroom Margherita, Bolognese and the ones I love, Shrimp and Chorizo pizza. Guaranteed your kids will enjoy it, this mom did so. So good!

Tuna Cheese Melt
Tuna Cheese Melt

This Tuna Cheese Melt is a full meal in itself. It's a flavourful play of Tuna, Cheddar Cheese, tartar sauce seated on a whole wheat bread with fries, dip and veggies on the side. PhP160

Pulled Pork Humba Sliders

On alone days, I’ve also tried filling my pandesal with humba, LOL. I didn’t know Sundays have a better and prettier version of that. These are dinner roll buns stuffed with specialty Humba, coleslaw and garlic aioli. PhP140

Malunggay Dip
Malunggay Dip

One of the must-pick on the appetizer list is the Malunggay Dip. Well, there’s always a first-time and this is my first. It’s a blend of finely minced malunggay, cheese, some magical herbs and spices with crostini and tortilla chips to go along with it. Who would have thought this combo will make a one-of-a-kind dip? It’s seriously healthy and tasty. PhP180.

Penne Nero

One of the must-tries at Sundays is Penne Nero. It's an appetizing blend of squid ink sauce, squid meat, Italian sausage and generous helpings of fresh seasonings. Highly recommended! PhP200.

Seafood Curry

You don’t have to go far to find one of the best-tasting seafood curries in town, Sundays have it. On this platter is a flavourful blend of fresh seafood in aromatic curry sauce. Each serving comes with grilled tortilla, perfect pair off. If you’re on a low-carb diet, this one’s a good choice. PhP380.

Bacon Liempo

When this platter came to the table, caught everyone saying, OMG! What’s not to love about these thin and crispy pork belly strips? In the know, Sundays’ serve all-day breakfast, so drop everything and go for this Bacon Liempo strips instead. Life is too short to not indulge, so go for it! You’ll be coming back for more, trust me! PhP320.

Ox Tail Stew

Another Sundays signature dish you shouldn’t miss trying is the Ox Tail Stew. This oriental tasting dish is stewed for hours in rich tomato sauce and flavourful spices. Its serve sitting on a little table top stove so it keeps warm all through-out meal time. This serves 3-5 persons for PhP630.

Pork Humba in Hotpot
Pork Humba in Hotpot

Sundays’ version is a family recipe, handed down by their grandfather. A true traditional Chinese Humba that’s braised for long so the pork meat comes so tender it fall to bits. The boiled egg made the sauce even richer and so full of flavour. This hotpot serves 3-5 persons for PhP320.

Pochero Steak

Another uniquely Sundays is the Pochero Steak. On the tray is roasted bulalo with cream sauce and cauliflower-truffle mash. This also serves 3-5 persons for PhP480.

Suman Langka Rolls with Tablea Dip

After stuffing all of the above in my humble stomach, we're down to the last stretch of our gastronomic journey. For dessert, we have Suman Langka Rolls with Tablea Dip. So ordinary looking yet so exceptionally delicious. I find this so perfect for merienda cena. PhP150

Bibingka Pudding

This Bibingka Pudding summed up our Sundays food experience. The flavour war between sweet, salty, umami, cheesy, buttery made this platter the bomb. It's so good you shouldn't miss this for the world! PhP120
