Feast of Chinese food
Just a few of the dishes in the Cafe Marco buffet during last night’s Chinese New Year 2017 celebration at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu: century egg salad with fried scallops, chicken and pumpkin cannelloni with cheese, jelly fish salad in the starters section, baby back ribs with black pepper, chili crab, hanging beef with steak sauce, steamed sea bass with soya sauce at the main course counters, and steamed buns to go with the Cebu lechon.
Desserts with a Chinese theme include the flourless cake, festival cake, buchi, and egg tart. Of course, there are also the usual pastry, cookie (malicious), ice cream, and Filipino dessert fixtures like puto bumbong.
Marco Polo and Cafe Marco provide you the perfect place to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year 2017 and greet family and friends Gong Xi Fa Cai.
