On June 12, 2015, we celebrated the 117th anniversary of our independence.
Our ancestors fought hard for it.
We are very lucky that we’re born in a time of peace, aren’t we?
We all know that Jose Rizal used the pen, Apolinario Mabini used his brains, Andres Bonifacio used the bolo, and Juan Luna used the paint brush.
But aren’t you wondering what helped keep them going during the days of revolution?
What were the dishes that fueled their bodies to attack our oppressors or care for the wounded and sick?
You don’t have to go to the library and open dusty old books because Marco Polo Cebu has done the research just for you!
If you want to know the favorite dishes of our national heroes, you are going to love the Independencia Buffet of Marco Polo Cebu!
So, what are the sumptuous dishes that you are going to enjoy?
Independencia Buffet of Marco Polo Cebu
I used to eat camote chips during afternoon snacks.
Whenever I’m in Bohol, I’d make lambing to my lola to cook me some chips.
Then I’d eat it while watching some afternoon soap operas.
When I had the chance to taste camote chips again, it brought back wonderful memories of my childhood days.
I’m sorry lola but Marco Polo’s camote chips are the bomb!
Whenever you have cough or colds, do people often tell you to have some chicken soup?
It does help us recuperate faster.
But as for me, I don’t want to get sick just to eat chicken soup.
I wanna eat it when I wanna eat it!
If it’s lunch and I’m craving for rice, perfect na combination ang Tinolang Manok!
I super duper love it when it’s filled with lots of sayote and malunggay leaves.
Just to let you know, this is Jose Rizal’s favorite dish.
As a kid, I didn’t like batong but when I grew up, I was surprised because I came to love it.
Lagyan ng konting meat slices at spices, I might be ordering another cup of rice to finish the entire Batong Guisado dish!
I have never tried Morcon until June 10, 2015.
No wonder it’s a favorite among lots of Filipinos.
Masarap nga talaga siya!
I am a seafood fanatic and I know it!
Leave a plate full of crabs and I’ll finish it all by myself!
Add some gata, oh oh oh!
I might need you to cook another caldero of rice!
Who doesn’t love Kare Kare?
Just add bagoong and mapapa-extra rice ka talaga sa sarap!
I seldom eat Fish Kinilaw and whenever I do, I make sure that it’s fresh and it’s delicious!
Whenever we need a meaty but healthier alternative to lechon baboy, Lechon Manok will always come to mind.
It’s so yummy, Andres Bonifacio made it his number one favorite dish!
And for dessert, not to be left out is gorgorio.
It’s a dough shaped into circles and baked into crunchy perfection.
It’s perfect when you dip it in yema or chocolate sauce!
I bet you are already craving to taste these goodies now!
