A Wine Kitchen.
Cellar de Boca is the best place to visit when you wish to experience a good array of top recipe (from appetizers to steaks) and an excellent choice of wines. Almost a month ago, the most hospitable and kind partners of Cellar de Boca, Vince, Tricie, Carlo and Bobby invited some of Davao Bloggers to take part in their opening celebration.
We were honored to taste some of the specialties of the kitchen and also of course, their Lagarde Wines from their bar.

A brief background will enlighten you of the wonderful tradition that the Cellar de Boca is bringing. Do not confuse yourself if you find of a cozy place near Rizal Street called Cellar de Oboza because the same couple who are among the four partners, Vince and Tricie Arcenas owns and manages the Filipino-Spanish restaurant and brought some of their famous dishes for you to indulge in Cellar de Boca. On the other hand, Bobby Tenchavez and Carlo Lorenzana (thus, the "Boca" in the brand name) are the exclusive wine importers of the Bodega Lagarde (Argentina) which is primarily the wine that you will enjoy in Cellar de Boca.
If you find yourself craving for the 'teaser' photos that I have posted here, go and reward your tummy and enjoy the excellent, excellent food and (do not forget) wine of Cellar de Boca that you will find in the second floor of SM Lanang Premier fronting the dancing fountain.
