Sooo Pinoy: Cafe Marco

Marco Polo Plaza Cebu's much-laureled Cafe Marco continues to attract first-time diners and regulars on stretches of all-time Filipino and Continental favorites.


The only five-star hotel in Cebu City boasts 4 bar and restaurant options to choose and offers 6 dining promotions and events which are absolutely great deals.

Cafe Marco is probably the most-visited restaurant in the hotel. It showcases a la carte and buffet dishes which are truly scrumptious and worth-the price.

The interior design is stunning. It's adorned with wooden floors and panels, earth-toned tabletops, yellow light fixtures and chair cushions of green, mustard and deep red.



Although dining at Cafe Marco is sort of a usual thing for me, it never fails to excite me whenever they have events or food launches. They know how to present their leeways the things under their sleeves and I love that way of them.


Presented to us bloggers of the Sooo Pinoy Food Tour Cebu Leg where three favorites of Cebuanos namely Pancit Molo,  Chicken & Pork Adobo and  Inun-Unan. 


Pancit Molo is akin to Wonton noodle soup. It is broth flavored by vegetables and bits of chicken with pork dumplings.


The dumpling is composed of lean pork,  shrimps, spring onions, chopped celeries mixed together and wrapped in Wanton wrapper. 

The broth comprises of chicken back bones (without skin), chopped onions, choppped spring onions, chopped green onions, julienne ham, chicken shreds, chicken powder, chopped fried garlic and basic garnishing.

Cafe Marco's Pancit Molo is just so delicious. The dumplings were done well. There were no hard stuff inside it and was pretty yummy. The soup was very flavorful. The vegetable cuts in it floated gorgeously.


Chicken and Pork Adobo is chicken cooked with pork meat, garlic cloves, bay leaf and ground black and soya sauce and vinegar.


This one made me want to bring home food. Embarrassing as it may sound but that is how the food tasted. The chicken was so tender and moist. I love how it blended with the oil; not too much. The chicken skin wasn't saggy nor too big. The garnishing was adequate.


Inun-Unan is Fish Tangigue cooked with egg plant, bittergourd, native garlic, chili finger, white vinegar and some garnishing.

Cafe Marco's version of Unun-Unan is so good. The fish cuts were very ambrosial. It's true taste lingered even after the cooking process. The vegetables were fresh and nicely cut. The broth was very rich! It wasn't too sour unlike most versions of food-places. I love how they came up with the taste.

Actually Inun-Unan is one of my favorite dishes. And I have to say this one is yet the best version I have ever tasted! 


I have to say, for the first time, that all the dishes mentioned in this blog post are must-trys. I love everything about it and I recommend you to try it all.


The dishes were showcased in clay pots which were very fascinating. It flaunted much about our food culture. I commend Marco Polo Plaza Cebu for it.
