Tuna stuffed bell peppers

Flavors of Spain! Marco Polo Plaza Cebu’s Cafe Marco spreads with authentic Spanish cuisine that we all love! This Culinary Journey is a celebration of good food, prepared by Ms. Gema Pido, an authority and the cafe’s consultant on Spanish dishes.

Must tries include of course the paella valenciana with lots of seafood. Its a meal in itself yet filling. The mechado del campo is interesting too. It’s beef with its center bored and filled with pork fat. The callos is tender good. The sopa gallego is a bit of a surprise. Savoring its rich soup and tender pork pieces reminds me of nilat-ang baboy which we usually have at home. On the other hand, the tuna filled bell peppers were quite crunchy in the outside and tasty in the inside that I really just have to get more.

Catch this culinary journey till 14 July at the Cafe Marco.
