While I am still in Davao, I try to support locally produced goods as much as I can. A few weeks ago I went to Malagos Farmhouse in Agdao. They are known for their dark chocolate and artisanal cheeses. True to the raves being shared in various social media outlets, their products have the finest quality. It is sure to awaken your taste buds.
