SCENE CITY| Delumbar Chicken BBQ house

KNOWN to the barbecue generation of the 80’s was the street barbecue place called Delumbar Chicken House. The owners started grilling at a popular barbecue strip along Magallanes St. in Davao City, found a place where the Marco Polo Hotel now stands and left the scene for several years.

Today Delumbar stages a comeback along C.M. Recto St. near the corner of Bonifacio St. where the Ideal Theater once stood. It has new additions to the popular barbecue chicken, serving Bulalo and Nilaga for lunch and dinner. It also serves snacks or “merienda” between lunch and dinner time.
