Chef Nontra-Udon Baupha, a Thai national, brought with him his 38 years of culinary experience in Thai cuisine for the festival. He is currently with the Marco Polo Prince Hotel but has worked from various hotels and restaurants both in Thailand and Hong Kong such as Imperial Hotel (Thailand), Tip Top Thai Restaurant (Thailand) and Supapra’s Thai Restaurant (Hong Kong).

This is a very great exposure not just for our culinary team but for Davao city as well. We hope this will not be the last Thai food festival, but a beginning of more culinary endeavors for both countries and other ASEAN countries as well,” says Marco Polo Davao General Manager Dottie Wurgler-Cronin.

Six different stir fried and noodles soup recipe also made it to the exclusive menu.  These are available for staying guests in-room dining only.

Wanton Style Noodle Soup

Pancit Palabok

Nanjing Beef Short Ribs Noodle Soup

Pancit Bihon Guisado

Chongqing Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

Pancit Egg Noodle Canton Style

Among the six, the Chongqing spicy noodle soup was a common fave in our group. The classic wanton noodle soup, when served hot, for me is still comfort food especially on a rainy day.

As Marco Polo Davao Executive Chef Alex Destriza would put it, “Food is like human evolution, it continues to evolve, improve and innovate. We are excited to present the Chinese items in our breakfast buffet and in-room dining menu to bring a distinct Chinese flavor in our offerings.

You may opt to go for ala carte and savor the authenticity one cuisine at a time at the Lotus Court at the third floor of the hotel.

While this Manila Mango flavored fruit infusion has the most interesting flavor for me among those we’ve tried. You have to try the other Althaus Tea that they are now offering at the hotel since we each have our own preference and as they say, our own cup of tea!
