Experience Asia in Poblacion Manticao

Manticao has been deemed the stop over of travelers passing through the CDO – Iligan Hiway. A lot of food hubs can be found along the road but the brainchild of this unique stopover made extra efforts to provide more experience to the byaheros, the Royal Panda.


Royal Panda Restaurant is a fast food and buffet avenue in one, serving Asian inspired dishes with the Filipino taste in mind. It serves dimsum favorites such as beef siomai, tausi chicken wings, wanton noodle soup and much more served from steamed trays.

It is conveniently located along the highway in Poblacion, Manticao, Misamis Oriental just right beside the Caltex gasoline station.

Upon entering, the popular Chinese panda wall decoration is the first artistic greeting with Chinese inspired lanterns dangling from the ceiling which the owner said was bought directly from China. Once the doors open, guests will be greeted with an imperial dynasty inspired buffet table serving Asian dishes namely the popular Chinese beefsteak and the Indonesian chicken satay.

The air-conditioned space comfortably has 33 seats with a conference room that can hold 20 people.

Royal Panda Restaurant is the first of its kind in Manticao to cater to travelers who want to experience Asia for as low as P39!


The Asian restaurant continually expands and improves their service and menu to give the ultimate Asian guest experience.

Bigby’s Newest Home in SM CDO Downtown Premier

Start Your Food Adventures at Bigby’s newest home in SM CDO Downtown Premier.

The Bigby’s Café Concept was first introduced in the city of Cagayan de Oro on December 8, 1998. Its creators came up with an idea of creating an atmosphere fit for an adventure into the different cuisines of the world. The menu, the interior design and service style were created to position the concept midway between fine dining and fast-casual dining. This format has developed into the Bigby’s Café and Restaurant System.

By 1999, Bigby’s Café and Restaurant was revolutionizing the dining habits in the city. Families, young urban professionals, and businessmen have made it into their ultimate dining choice. The concept has evolved into a fun dining atmosphere that is manifested through its unique “worldly” decors that hang on every wall that is complemented by the wide array of wittingly-named dishes it serves in generous portions at reasonable prices.

Bigby’s Café and Restaurant are now found in many major cities in both Visayas and in Mindanao. It has a total of 8 branches with its newest branch that officially opened last May 28, 2017, at the Level 4 of SM CDO Downtown Premier.
