Dayaw: Flavours of Davao
Manila, Philippines — Learning more about a country’s culture and traditions is best experienced through stories of food and community. At the Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, a culinary journey to Davao will take place featuring the region’s choice dishes with “Dayaw: The Flavours of Davao.” Chef James Tinio from sister hotel Marco Polo Davao will be at the forefront of this celebration, happening from 14 to 29 March.
More than featuring the Davao’s rich seafood dishes, Chef James will join the Cucina team in recounting the region’s history and customs with food from its different tribal communities. These include familiar flavors such as the Tausug tribe’s tiyula itum (black beef soup with lemongrass and burnt coconut), the Jangan tribe’s linotlot nga manok (chicken cooked in bamboo), and Sulu’s piyalam (pomfret simmered in lemongrass and basil). Chef James, a native of Davao, has been part of the Marco Polo Davao for almost seven years, having represented the hotel during last year’s Philippine Culinary Cup.
Located on Level 24, Cucina will feature Davaoeño dishes as part of the lunch and dinner service in its specialized spread, available daily. “Inspired by our namesake global traveler, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila is proud to share the experiences and stories cultures from around the world through food,” said Samuel Ashworth, Director of Restaurants, Bars, and Events. “Our guests are most welcome to join us at Cucina, as we not only feature some of the world’s beloved flavors but also put the spotlight on Philippine regional cuisine,” he added.
