A festive lunch buffet and dinner buffet awaits you at the hotel’s resto in the heart of Davao which offers your favorite Filipino dishes and for some of us let you explore, experience and discover new tastes from those new dishes.
Last night’s Independence Day dinner with influencers from DDI and media friends was fun and interesting as Marco Polo Davao celebrated the country’s national day.
The halo halo station blended well with the theme’s decorations.
They also have a variety of Filipino salads for you who are into healthy-eating while in a buffet!
The Kari Imperial above was like a special Filipino chicken curry version that is definitely not your ordinary curry dish which really made me happy!
Lengua Estofado among other Filipino cuisine dishes served in huge clay pots spread in a section of the buffet.
They also had Adobo Pizza for you to try!
They do have a live cooking station in the buffet where you can specifically choose the ingredients for your sisig that they will cook!
Now forgive me but this is my fave part of the buffet!
The festive Filipino dessert buffet spread was colorful and delicious!
Mostly Filipino inspired desserts awaits you at this section. My fave actually in any kind of buffet. *wink*
These Filipino desserts – Ube Halaya, turon, and all-time fave leche flan – which were specially served on our table were delicious!
