MARCO POLO ORTIGAS recently teamed up with Marco Polo Plaza Cebu and Marco Polo Davao to bring together different dishes to entice the dining public. Different menus were created to rotate between these hotels forming a wonderful relationship with each other. From here, they would allow their guests to experience the culinary delights that each property has to offer.
If there was one drink to try at MARCO POLO, it would be this amazing EARL GRAPE ICED TEA. Different Marco Polo Hotels in the region created their best ice tea for their competition. This concoction won and is being served in different properties. Cold Earl Grey Tea serves as the base and is poured in a glass that contains grapes and elderflower infused ice cubes. Accompanying it are Turkish delights. Syrup is provided on the side to give the guests the opportunity to enjoy the drink based on their preference.
Pineapple and mango were combined to create Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's Pina Mania. The PINEAPPLE-MANGO Salad had a tamarind vinaigrette dressing. This gave the dish a little bit of sour flavor that blended well with the sweet tones from the fruits. Another dish that is definitely a FILIPINO favorite would be the CRISPY PATA. Making the dish more interesting, it was stuffed with FOIE GRAS. Having a pineapple salsa on the side, gave the dish contrasting flavors. The savory dish went well with the sweet salsa.
MARCO POLO PLAZA CEBU'S MANGO BANGO was created to bring a tropical twists to classic favorites. One of these dishes would be the Pasta Ravioli with Crabmeat and Mango. This interesting pasta dish was cooked al dente. The filling was properly sealed inside the pasta making it a joy to eat.
Another dish coming from Marco Polo Plaza Cebu would be the MANGO SURF and TURF. Beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly and had sake infused beef jus. It was moist and tender that it went well with the mash potato. The Grouper fish, on the other end, was equally delicious.
For dessert, the PINEAPPLE TAMALES and the CHEESECAKE and MANGO JAM CREME BRULEE were served. The Tamales had fillings of sticky rice and some sweet coconut shavings on top. The Cheesecake was smooth and the creme brulee wasn't too sweet.
