Last Saturday, I was one of the foodies who got to enjoy a sumptuous seafood feast at Marco Polo Davao’s Seafood Dinner Buffet. For reasons I could not fathom, it has been years since I found out that I became hypersensitive to crustaceans and mollusks. To others who experience the same thing, every trip to a seafood buffet felt like going on a suicide mission, but for me, it’s simply what I rationalize as desensitization.  As long as I pop in an antihistamine a few minutes before the feast, I simply believe I will be just fine (and I was even until now, hence this post!)


One of the hotel’s exciting treats this summer, Marco Polo Davao’s Seafood Dinner Buffet will satisfy seafood cravings every Friday and Saturday until April 29, 2017 at Cafe Marco. This treat is a perfect alternative for guests who chose to abstain from meat during the Lenten season. Diners will get to feast on abundant fresh produce like crabs, shrimps, shells and various fish that can be enjoyed in different preparations according to the guest’s preference. The wide array of delectable seafood selection definitely stood out from the other food stations readily available on a regular Cafe Marco buffet.



Those whose palates lean more towards the carnivorous side will never go hungry as well since meat dishes are also available. But of course, one must also save room for desserts! 



For only Php 1500.00 per person, Cafe Marco's Seafood Dinner Buffet will not make you only "see" the food, but you have to "taste" the food and eat all you can in order to enjoy it.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is considered to be as one of the most important Chinese holidays and has long been celebrated worldwide for centuries in thanksgiving for the abundant season. It is usually held on the fifteenth day of the eight month of the Chinese lunar calendar, which also happens to be the first night of the full moon, hence it is also labeled as the Moon Festival. This year, the festival took place on the 27th of September.  

In celebration of this festival, I was invited to an elegant dinner buffet at the Lotus Court at the Marco Polo Davao. The buffet spread included special signature dishes from the Lotus Court such as the Seafood Delight and specialty dimsum.



The festival would not be complete without the highlight of the tradition - the moon cakes. It has been thought that sharing and eating moon cakes during the week of the festival brings completeness and unity among families.


The restaurant was filled with a festive vibe when Grades 4 to 10 students from Colegio de San Ignacio entertained the guests with their song and dance performances that depicted around the celebration of love, freedom, prosperity, to name a few of the crucial things in life which are truly worth celebrating for.

White House's show-stealer cheesecake: the Yamamomo Cheesecake

“Bring her to The White House.”

That’s exactly my no-brainer response every time a male friend asks me where to bring a woman on a first date. If you guys certainly want to make a big and lasting impression on a first date, then why not splurge for a romantic dinner for two at The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge.

Because in today’s era where people are pushing for gender equality, I guess the saying,  “the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, also holds true for women as well. 


Situated at the Camella Northpoint, near the Buhangin Flyover, is a heritage house turned into a charming, romantic restaurant which offers an exciting fusion of European and Japanese cuisine that can truly tickle a Filipino palate. The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge offers visually-appealing and impressively sumptuous dishes, created by Chef Cathy Binag, and served in a romantic ambiance with the gorgeous architecture of the property, romantic glow of warm lights and the natural beauty of the landscape as an added bonus.


And if the words you have just read still haven’t piqued your curiosity, then let these pictures do the talking.
