15 February 2018 – Welcoming the year of the Earth Dog, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu celebrated the eve of the lunar year with traditions –  lion and dragon dance, eye dotting ceremony, tossing of coins, and lighting up of firecrackers to ward away evil spirit. Then the Yee Sang Ceremony, or the Prosperity Toss, came next to bring more luck. A repeat ceremony was held earlier this morning as well.

Much talked about Café Marco resides at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu. Recognized as “the best buffet in Cebu”, Café Marco continues to attract continues first-time diners and regulars to feast on stretches of all Filipino and Continental favorites; Asian treats from their Chinese ad Japanese stations; the freshest greens at the salad bar and a luscious spread for the sweet tooth on their dessert station.


MOLO SOUP

In line with the Sooo Pinoy Food Trip sponsored by Uniliver Food Solutions and Department of Tourism, we were treated by Cafe Marco with Filipino dishes! Molo soup is a Filipino dish fondly dubbed as the “soup to calm the nerves” by Marco Polo’s consultant for Filipino cuisine, Ms. Jessica Avila. Launched during the MICE Conference August 2011 it has since been a favorite for hotel guests.
The noted difference is the use of the chicken’s back meat and the soup from the chicken’s bones made tasty by shredded pieces of ham.

The shortest of short-cuts to a place you’ve never been to but would want to experience is through that particular region’s cuisine. Nothing gives a better impression to what the region is about than their specialties, delicacies and food is cultivated and prepared.
Today we will take the “express route” up north of the country to the “Culinary Journey to Bicolandia”. And the good news is, we need not travel far! Just head over to Cafe Marco at the Marco Polo Hotel. True enough the least of your worries is not the distance but how much “heat” you can take.Marco Polo in conjunction with the Department of Tourism Region V (The Bicol Region) struck a deal in making this culinary experience possible with Ms. Maria Ong-Ravanilla, Bicol Regional Director – “Lets play it with fire” she said. Guest Celebrity Chef Doy Sto. Domingo who flew in all the way from Naga, also casually mentioned that the markets were running out of chilli preparing for this feast. For those with faint palates that might have been enough to make you sweat, but for those with heat tolerance? Challenge accepted.

Bicol region’s reputation for loving their extremely hot and spicy dishes did not disappoint with the first dish to taste. What can be more spicy than a Chilli Wrap? For an appetizer. And yes it literally is Chilli peppers, with stuffings, folded inside a lumpia wrapper. You can really taste the heat of the chilli but it’s worth a try.

To give the overthecounterviagramax palate a break there were non-spicy dishes such as Beef Caldereta, Laing, Bicol Longganisa and two of interesting dishes we’ve tried, the  Lapu-Lapu sa Buko  – Lapu-Lapu fish cooked in coconut water, really delectable!

and the Pininyang Manok

Chicken simmered in coconut milk (gata) and pineapple juice. The aroma alone was exquisite and the blend of flavours?Even better.Of course the star of the feast and signature specialty of the Bicol region; The Bicol Express. Needless to say it is spicy. How spicy? Definitely depends on ones tolerance to Chilli pepper’s heat. But for those who aren’t fans of hot and spicy, you might want a trusty glass of water to cool you down.

To top of the meal, desserts are served. You would be surprised to know that even something as common place as Ice cream has not escaped the spicy treatment! Worth a try!
So to conclude this culinary journey, what kind of impression does one get from Bicolandia cuisine? As Ms. Ravanilla have said, the Bicol region is known as the land of fire, and the Bicolanos are known for their ardent passion.

The Culinary Journey: Bicolandia runs from April 20-29 at Cafe Marco, Marco Polo Hotel. Go and challenge your taste buds!

Suroy Suroy sa Marco Polo

We can’t deny that we Filipinos love to eat! Every time there is an occasion, we always have to make a point that it’s a feast, shared with family and friends. In Cebu, one of the most colorful and celebrated festivals in the country is about to transpire – Sinulog which will happen this Sunday, January 15, 2012. Every year it brings in tourists from around the country and globe to celebrate the feast of the blessed Cebuano representation of Jesus – Senyor Santo Nino. Unique as the Sinulog Celebration, the Cebuano dishes are as well unique and a must expreience when in Cebu. And in time for the Sinulog celebration, Cafe Marco brings us Suroy Suroy sa Marco Polo – featuring dishes from the south of Cebu. Suroy suroy sa Marco Polo will be until January 15, 2012 so be sure not to miss it! The buffet consists of authentic Cebuano dishes on top of the international buffet Cafe Marco is serving.

So let me just give you a bit of a tease here guys and show you some of the dishes that I loved when we dined at Cafe Marco a little earlier with  iLuvCebu.com team mates Edd Buenaviaje and Chai Rico together with the lovely ladies of Marco Polo Kyra, Yumny and Monica.

There’s a line of Cebuano appetizers and one of my favorites is Nukos bulad or dried squid. This is very common breakfast among Cebuanos and is so good when dipped in vinegar with crashed garlic. Yum! For foreign tourists, this appetizer might be a bit salty for you to handle, so better try a bite first before hoarding it on your plate. ^_^ I personally would recommend this with a bottle of local beer.

Marco Polo Sugbusug 2012 Dried Nukos

 

Another favorite appetizer is Ampalaya Salad or bitter melon salad. Almost every province in the Philippines have their own version of Ampalaya Salad. In Cebu, we added slices of tomato and onions then drizzled with vinegar.

 

 

I have never met a Cebuano who doesn’t love Humba, of course not counting the vegetarian Cebuanos. Different versions of Humba is prepared in different regions of the Philippines. Cebuano humba version I grew up with is prepared with chunks of meat with fat and skin, tendered by boiling, then fried over oil and soy sauce with black peppers.

One of my favorite Spanish influences to the Cebuanos is Paella Valeciana. Paella Valenciano ala Cebuano uses alternate meat (chicken strips, shrimp and pork strips)  from the authentic Paella Valenciana which uses rabbit and chicken meat.

Paella Valenciana

 

And we Cebuanos just love our seafood. Have your seafood grilled fresh!

Seafood

 

Torta (Cebuano spongecake) , Budbod (sticky rice wrapped in banana leaves), nilusak (mashed banana with coconut shavings) and biko bisaya (sticky rice with sweetened coconut strips in sugar syrup) are among Cebuano favorite desserts.

Be in a festive mood and head up to Cafe Marco and taste a true Cebuano feast to complete your Sinulog celebration!

Dilis at Mani

For appetizer, hankered on “dilis at mani” (Sweetened Anchovies with peanuts). Makes a great beer muncher!

Empanada Batac

One of my personal favorites is the local Ilocano taste of “Empanada Batac.”  Meat and veggies wrapped in an orange crisp dough cloak.

Crispy Dinardaraan

Another Ilocos flavor that delighted us is the Crispy Dinardaraan. Pork meat with intestines in pig’s blood. Dinuguan Ilocos style! numnum!

Canada Pork at Cafe Marco!

Soft, tender and juicy – that’s how I would describe the slices of  Canada pork which was the highlight of the launching of Canada Pork at Cafe Marco last March 29, 2011.

Canada Pork @ Marco Polo

With Marco Polo serving the oh-so-delicious Canada pork for a week ( March 29 -April 4, 2011), it was definitely a treat both to Cebuanos and tourists visiting Cebu.
