Marco Polo Davao, Mindanao’s only premier hotel,
celebrates the country’s 119th Independence Day
with a festive buffet of time-honored Filipino favorite dishes
at Café Marco from June 12 to 17, 2017.


Just like the heyday, main dishes were presented in a traditional earthen ‘palayok’ giving it an authentic Filipino feels.

I was one lucky earthling I got to sample all of what awaits you at Café Marco. Among my favorites were the fried tawilis, mechado, chicken sisig and ube halaya. All-time Filipino favorites, like kare-kare, afritada, fish paksiw, mechado, pinakbet, adobo and so much more await one and all who’ll come and savor true Filipino food culture.

"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.

Highlight of the event was the switch of roles between Marco Polo Executive Chef Alex Destriza and Restaurants, Bars and Events Manager Chel Yabut, who also happens to be a food historian, blogger, recipe and culinary director, as they bring an exciting feel to the Independence week celebration by demonstrating simple ways on how to prepare traditional recipes like Ensaladang Talong and a 100-year old Pancit Pusit ni Asiong’s, a popular dish in Southern Tagalog region.
