Signature Dishes Introduced by Marco Polo Davao

Marco Polo Davao is introducing new signature dishes for Café Marco, Polo Bolo Bistro and Lotus Court.

“We are delighted to unveil Marco Polo Davao’s signature dishes for our three restaurants as we continue to be a destination for culinary adventure” said Executive Chef Alex Destriza.

Café Marco, the hotel’s all-day Western, Filipino and Asian dining, introduces Gambas al Ajillo as its new signature dish which will be served its buffet spread. Gambas al Ajillo, a popular Spanish prawn dish, is served with baby prawn, Italian chorizo, olive oi, garlic, chili, paprika powder and dried chili finger.

The chili fingers on this dish gives it a kick of spiciness that lingers as you enjoy this dish. To be honest, I can’t help but take more of their serving. Since Cafe Marco is a buffet style resto of the hotel, might as well enjoy your unli gambas in the city!

Lotus Court, the most celebrated Cantonese Restaurant in town, will take you to another level of oriental gastronomic experience as it introduces its signature item the Dimsum Trio – Spinach Dumpling, Xiao Long Bao and Century Egg Siomai. Family and friends can share this signature item for Php 500.00.

The spinach dumpling was a popular pick among our table. I think all three were almost equally flavorful with a distinct taste of their own. The xiao long bao is one of the best I’ve tried here in the city.

Marco Polo Davao’s outdoor restaurant Polo Bistro introduces Baby Back Ribs as its signature item.

This mouthwatering dish is served with truffle mushed, pomelo salad, buttered French beans and sweet potato chips, and can be shared for Php 610.00.

Marco Polo Davao has been considered as the hub of gastronomic journeys in the city, as its culinary team has continued to showcase the various local and international cuisines.
