There’s more to the City of Golden friendship than meets the eye. With its strategic geographical position, it doesn’t come as a surprise how Cagayan de Oro has become one of Mindanao’s highly urbanized city. This means several good things for its people. More and more business establishments have sprouted over the past few years. Huge malls gave aspiring local entrepreneurs a solid venue to jumpstart their own food businesses, expanding the list of new fares for the locals to try.

If you’ve been around the city for the past five years, you’ll be able to notice these changes. And it would be such a waste not to go out and explore much of what it has to offer, especially the food! Cagayan de Oro is a haven for gastronomic experiences. There’s a wide range of old and new restaurants to choose from. The good news? Most of these restaurants are home-grown. The bad news is that they haven’t expanded that much yet to other cities which makes their location exclusive to the city. But, if you’re someone who spends most of his time within CDO, the latter doesn’t really seem like a bad thing for you.

If you’re on the lookout for the hottest restaurants in town, you have probably heard of Magill’s Bistro. This charming home-grown restaurant is located in the city’s friendly uptown neighbourhood, within the booming Pueblo de Oro Business Park stretch, along Masterson Avenue.
