We ordered a combo meal enough for 4-5 persons - 999php - tuna pakfry (paksiw and deep-fried), lumpia, beef bulalo, tuna kilawin, rice and Coke. Nice ambience as well.

Palo Vince Tuna Pakfry is a must try. They found a way to creatively and deliciously cook tuna's tail. If you feel hungry but you want to avoid pork or beef, Palo Vince Pakfry must be for you. Visit Palo Vince at Dacudao Street in Davao. Just few streets at the back of Abreeza Mall in Davao or just below... More

Something special but still "average" for me. Try the pakfry, the tuna tails in a special sauce and friend. From time to time, you might also like the Crispy Tata.

I should say it's an innovative way of cooking since the most common tuna recipe of all time is grilled. Pakfry is amazingly crispy even if it's stewed. It is a bit salty though. I love the ambience, an airconditioned room made of native products mainly amacan.

Palo Vince gave me my first taste of Tuna "Pakfry"... tuna tails stewed in special pickle sauce and then fried, resulting in a mouth-watering dish! It's crispy on the outside but because it was stewed, the fish flesh remains moist and flavorful. It is served with the pickled sauce and best eaten with plain rice. It was also here where... More
