As part of the Davao Food Appreciation Tour, fourteen very lucky bloggers ate a five-course meal at the Polo Bistro Pool Lounge of the Marco Polo Hotel.
First off, we tried the very peppery (but not spicy) Pepper-Crusted Seared Tuna served with Cucumber and Kani Relish. It was very successful in making our tongues be prepared for more Continental Cuisine delights prepared by Sous Chef Alex Bomanlag.
After the appetizer, we were served the very rich, very flavorful, and very, very cheesy French Onion Soup with Parmesan, Mozarella, and Ementhal Cheeses. Being a cheese-lover, I was enamored with the French Onion Soup. The cheeses complemented the delicate soup very well. I do not eat onions but I savored every onion strip in that soup.
Then came the salad and main dish combo. The Fresh Greens and Fruits Salad with Cesar Dressing was served with the main dish in order to cleanse our palates for the delectable main dish we were going to eat. The serving of the main dish was preceded by a live cooking presentation of our food. (SEE VIDEO!)
