Marco Polo Davao, Philippines —
The last time I had a big birthday party was when I was 13 years old. I remember having 2 cakes at that time, one my parents bought and the other one my aunt baked. Now as I’m growing older, dining out becomes more of a tradition. Plus it’s intimate (for the introvert in me) and hassle-free. This year is my first birthday after our marriage, by the way.
My sister brought home a banoffee pie after work.
An unprofessional slice of the cake by me.
At dinnertime, I had a feast with my family and Danny at Café Marco. It was my first time there. Thanks to my other sister for the treat.
Appetizer – tuna sashimi, maki and all sorts of salad. I can’t believe they don’t serve salmon.
Main course was roast beef, bagnet, grilled and roast chicken, potato, seafood and another round of sushi and maki.
From left to right, bottom to top: Mocha cake, Vanilla cake, Chocolate cake, and Durian cake.
Dessert time! I was craving for macarons for weeks and I got a feeling I could see it there. But when I saw the “display only” sign, it really got me pissed. ARGH!
My thoughts: The soup wasn’t hot and there were not too many choices of food. Desserts and drinks were too sweet and the rest were A-okay. I also think it’s the priciest buffet in Davao. Too bad, I forgot to ask for my free birthday cake!
Note: This is based on our honest opinion and personal experience only.
