Huckleberry Southern Kitchen & Bar is located at the lower level of a repurposed heritage house in the heart of Davao City. I’ve heard rave reviews about this place and my friends keep recommending it. So I decided to check it out while waiting for someone.
And boy, I was impressed.
It’s something that you don’t normally see in Davao. Huckleberry has this laid back atmosphere that helps you relax while having a drink with friends. There’s this underground feel to it (maybe because it’s located in the lower or basement level of the house) that is cozy and welcoming. The place is quite small, but it allows for intimate conversations with your companions. The prices of the food and drinks are mid to high range, so come here if you want to #treatyoself or want to go extra with friends.
The place is beautifully designed with ambient lighting and earthy tones. I love it.
On my first visit, I ordered their Mac and Cheese (PHP 100), Brandy Salted Caramel Walnut and White Chocolate Ice Cream (PHP 175) and some coffee (of course!). The mac and cheese gives you the warm fuzzies, while the ice cream dessert is hands down delicious. The coffee is a little bit acidic for me, but adding a little milk and sugar balanced out the taste.

Coffee with milk and sugar (PHP 90)
What made my visit extra special was because of the Brandy, Salted Caramel, Walnut and White Chocolate Ice Cream This dessert is nutty and rich with the right amount of sweetness. I don’t want to stop eating it. I love how they didn’t scrimp on the walnuts too. It definitely brought out the happy kid in me. Huckleberry definitely knows how to craft desserts, so I’m coming back for more.

Do check out their Beignets a la Café Du Monde with Hot Chocolate Cake (PHP 185) and Potato Chip Crusted Chocolate Cake (PHP 160). They also offer gourmet courses and strong drinks. So whether you’re coming in at midday (like I did) or looking for a hip place to hang out late at night, do come to Huckleberry to give yourself a treat.
