It was 5 minutes before 12 midnight when I told my husband I was hungry. We both did not have dinner because we had late and heavy lunch. The thought of cooking this late was not appealing so we both agreed to just drive around and see what we can find after midnight in downtown Davao.
Most restaurants were closed but we found some that were still open. We drove around for an hour before we decided to eat and we listed some restaurants and coffee shops and we saw along the way. I wanted so much to take pictures but the battery of my hubby’s camera was almost drained and taking pictures at night with a DSLR proved to be challenging. The route we took started in Magallanes then to Claveria (CM Recto), Bajada up to SPMC then we went back to Torres, Jacinto extension, Quirino Avenue, Bolton Extension, San Pedro then to Matina area. Hubby wanted to see if Dexter’s pizza in Ecoland was still open as he was craving for pizza so we drove to Caltex near SM Ecoland. They just closed when we arrived. We went back to Matina and just settled there.
Anyway, if you feel hungry at this unholy time, you might consider our list of where to eat in Davao City after 12 midnight.

Davao Central Convenience Stores are open for 24 hours and they are found in major streets in Davao City.
Just like Davao Central Convenience Stores, Minute Burger is found in almost every major street in Davao City.
As to where we had our midnight meal, the Red Bee, aka Jollibee, caught our palate. 🙂
