LOVE Cebuano food? Then you’d love the Cebuano food promotion that is taking place at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s all-day dining destination, Cucina, from January 11 to 23, 2020, as part of the restaurant’s mission to showcase the regional cuisines of the country.
Cucina’s kitchen team, led by Executive Chef Alisdair Bletcher, will be featuring select dishes from Cebu as part of the daily lunch and dinner buffet spread. These include Sinuglaw (grilled pork belly and fish ceviche), Paklay (pork, beef and goat innards), Humba (braised pork belly with tausi and dried banana blossoms), Nilarang na Pagi (stingray in coconut milk), Ginabot (chicharon) and Cucina’s own take on the puso (cooked rice in woven coconut leaves). The chefs also feature the Philippine mango, which is one of Cebu’s treasured by-products, in a seasonal dessert pizza.
