I always look forward to dining at Cafe Marco, Cebu City’s best buffet. And with this new culinary journey, I’m sure you will love it too.
This month of June, to celebrate the 116th Philippine Independence Day, Cafe Marco, under the guidance of culinary guru Jessica Avila, whipped up the latest Culinary Journey, Comida de Independencia which highlights cuisine served during the Declaration of Independence in 1898 at the residence of General Emilio Aguinaldo in Kawit, Cavite.
Feast on bringhe, Filipino version of the Spanish paella, poke-poki, chicken adobo terrine, native chicken karahay and many more. There’s also a smorgasbord of other Filipino food like the pansit buko, an interesting dish that used strips of coconut meat instead of the usual egg noodles; sinuglaw, a popular southern dish made from kinilaw (ceviche) mixed with grilled pork; beef brisket asado and baked bariles (tuna).
I especially liked the flavorful lechon manok, the garlicky crab relleno (stuffed crab shell) and pakbet sa cerveza, an Ilocano vegetable dish that was cooked with beer. For dessert, the sampaguita ice cream was really quite memorable with its distinct and good flavor.
And the best thing? You can enjoy these delicious culinary journey offerings on top of the usual international buffet spread! It’s really good value for money while enjoying Filipino cuisine in the spirit of Philippine independence!
Comida de Independencia is available for lunch and dinner from 5-14 June 2014
