There's something about Siggi's

"There’s something about Siggi’s"
Sun.Star Davao, July 19, 2008

Entrepreneur and mother of three Bia Go never fails to receive compliments whenever she prepares her well-loved barbeque for family and friends.

“They say it reminds them of this famous restaurant in Manila which serves amazing barbeque with their distinct special sauce and java rice. People would often try to convince us to open our own restaurant”, Bia recounts.

So when Bia and her husband Dencio (also a culinary whiz) found a suitable location for their dream restaurant, they immediately grabbed the chance and opened Siggi’s to the public last July 4, 2008.

“We liked the name Siggi’s because it means ‘victory protection’. In the Urban Dictionary, it is also defined as a person who is ‘funny and makes people laugh; you can hear people laughing all around him’. In the same way, that is what Siggi’s is all about—good food, good laughs and good times”, Bia says.

Fresh and hip
The couple sought the services of one of Davao and Cebu’s most talented interior designers, Adeline Infante, and their collaboration resulted in creating a fresh and hip ambience to the 118 square-meter Siggi’s.

The cosmopolitan interiors boast of red, aqua and white-colored walls accentuated with leaf designs. Honeycombed-inspired shelves, imposing mirrors and the high ceiling contributed to the modish feel of the 50-seater dining area. White tiffany chairs with aqua-colored cushions and wrought iron woven-designed lamps captured the fancies of diners.

“Everyone who has seen the restaurant had nothing but compliments for its interiors. Certainly, Adeline has done a fantastic job”, proudly shares Bia who has likewise worked with the young designer for their family-owned Asian deli, Golden Bamboo, located along Jacinto Extension.

There’s something about Siggi’s
“Siggi’s cuisine is typically Western in nature but with infusion of some Filipino dishes. Some recipes are our own family specialties while others are dishes generally known but we made adjustments to improve their taste and quality, making them more enticing and appetizing”, Bia discloses.

Specialties of the house include Gambas (P185), French Onion Soup (P115), Seafood Marinara (P220), Charbroiled Baby Back Ribs with rice (P195), Chicken Barbeque with rice (P145) and Catch of the Sea (P185).

In addition, recommended dishes for the family are lip-smacking appetizers such as Calamari A La Pobre, Siggi’s Sisig Special, Beef Salpicao, Buffalo Wings and scrumptious salads like Oriental Hot Chicken and Prawn Salad.

Cheese Logs, Pasta Carbonara and Bolognese, Chicken-In-A-Basket, Fish and Fries, Pork Belly Express as well as Brownie Ala Mode are some of the yummy bestsellers for kids.

“The restaurant is for people who want the finest choices, coupled with value for their money. We offer not just the food and venue but the entire eating experience. It is family-friendly and customers are assured of superb dining with modern ambience”, Bia ends with a smile.

And, because of all these, there’s something about Siggi’s that makes it one of Davao’s newest must-go restaurants for the whole family!

Siggi’s is located at 37 A. Mabini St., Davao City. Tel. no. 2258642. It is open daily from 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. The restaurant also has a special function room for small meetings (15 persons), P2,000 consumable for 3 hours.
