Around Asia in 30 days

Time to take a trip. A culinary trip around Asia.

Café Marco at Marco Polo Davao presents a new line of Asian signature dishes that promises to enrich the already extensive international dinner buffet spread from 14 November to 14 December 2011.

Both seasoned and seasonal, entrées include the Skewered Sate of Thailand, the ever-popular Nasi Goreng of Indonesia, and our sumptuous take on the Biryani of India, among others.

Satisfy your craving for that particularly piquant Asian aroma, head on over to Café Marco for “A Taste of Southeast Asia.” Buffet dinner comes with a glass of “Asian Fame”, the freshest cocktail juice concoction of papaya, pineapple, and a touch of lemon.
