Mindanao's first and only premier hotel, Marco Polo Davao commemorates the country’s 119th Celebration of Independence with a festive buffet of Filipino favorite dishes at Café Marco from June 12 to 17. This tribute comes timely now that Filipino cuisine has slowly taking over the global food scene. 


"Celebrating our country’s national day or Araw ng Kalayaan is very timely and important in our times today. Food is a representation of our freedom and culture as Filipino from where you can taste the influence of Spanish, American, Japanese and Southeast Asian countries. Filipino not becoming globally recognized to be truly appetizing and sumptuous," says General Manager Dottie Wurgler-Cronin.




The celebration was kicked off with a switch of roles between Executive Chef Alex Destriza and Restaurants, Bars and Events Manager Chel Yabut. A food historian, blogger, recipe and culinary director, Chef Chel will once again put on the toque and takes over the kitchen to bring authentic recipes, such as Ensaladang Talong and the Pancit Pusit ni Asiong, from Southern Luzon to the Heart of Davao kitchen, and to your very plates.



From June 12 to June 17, guests can enjoy their favorite Filipino dishes like Kare-kare, Kaldereta, Mechado, Sinigang, Afriatada, Pinakbet, Adobo and sizzling Sisig and so much more at Php799nett for lunch and Php1,100nett for dinner.

Last Saturday, I was one of the foodies who got to enjoy a sumptuous seafood feast at Marco Polo Davao’s Seafood Dinner Buffet. For reasons I could not fathom, it has been years since I found out that I became hypersensitive to crustaceans and mollusks. To others who experience the same thing, every trip to a seafood buffet felt like going on a suicide mission, but for me, it’s simply what I rationalize as desensitization.  As long as I pop in an antihistamine a few minutes before the feast, I simply believe I will be just fine (and I was even until now, hence this post!)


One of the hotel’s exciting treats this summer, Marco Polo Davao’s Seafood Dinner Buffet will satisfy seafood cravings every Friday and Saturday until April 29, 2017 at Cafe Marco. This treat is a perfect alternative for guests who chose to abstain from meat during the Lenten season. Diners will get to feast on abundant fresh produce like crabs, shrimps, shells and various fish that can be enjoyed in different preparations according to the guest’s preference. The wide array of delectable seafood selection definitely stood out from the other food stations readily available on a regular Cafe Marco buffet.



Those whose palates lean more towards the carnivorous side will never go hungry as well since meat dishes are also available. But of course, one must also save room for desserts! 



For only Php 1500.00 per person, Cafe Marco's Seafood Dinner Buffet will not make you only "see" the food, but you have to "taste" the food and eat all you can in order to enjoy it.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is considered to be as one of the most important Chinese holidays and has long been celebrated worldwide for centuries in thanksgiving for the abundant season. It is usually held on the fifteenth day of the eight month of the Chinese lunar calendar, which also happens to be the first night of the full moon, hence it is also labeled as the Moon Festival. This year, the festival took place on the 27th of September.  

In celebration of this festival, I was invited to an elegant dinner buffet at the Lotus Court at the Marco Polo Davao. The buffet spread included special signature dishes from the Lotus Court such as the Seafood Delight and specialty dimsum.



The festival would not be complete without the highlight of the tradition - the moon cakes. It has been thought that sharing and eating moon cakes during the week of the festival brings completeness and unity among families.


The restaurant was filled with a festive vibe when Grades 4 to 10 students from Colegio de San Ignacio entertained the guests with their song and dance performances that depicted around the celebration of love, freedom, prosperity, to name a few of the crucial things in life which are truly worth celebrating for.

Here are the following dishes included in their special Kadayawan 2014 menu:

BABY BACK RIBS IN DURIAN BARBECUE SAUCE
One's experience in Davao will not be considered complete without tasting the king of fruits and the city's most popular fruit, the Durian. Others may even cringe at the idea but what more if it's incorporated in a dish? Surprisingly, the durian in this barbecue sauce did not come off as offensive and overwhelming but rather, it gave off a very interesting and unique blend of flavor. Seriously, I was blown away with this dish! 

BEEF/MUTTON ENTREE

BEEF STEAK TAGALOG
 

SPICY BAKED CALDERETANG KAMBING
