Polo Bistro Pool Lounge: Dinner at Marco Polo Davao (US Potato Safari 3)

My first visit at Marco Polo Hotel is memorable for two reasons: (1) our dinner at Polo Bistro Pool Lounge was fantastic (2) we got to meet and take a selfie with Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.  Since I'm not spilling the beans on the latter, let's proceed with the dinner shall we?

Upon reaching the deck level, I was mesmerized with the place.  Naturally, I couldn't resist the temptation of taking a photo which made my Davao blogger friends wonder on what's taking me so long

The Polo Bistro Pool Lounge is the pool house of my dreams.  I am absolutely in love with the minimalist interiors.

Food

Complimentary Bread
The Complimentary Bread is served warm.  My friend Ria gushes as this was served exclaiming that this is her favorite.  I tried it out to see why and she's right it is delicious!


Salad

US Potato Crisscut and Shrimp Cake
The US Potato Crisscut and Shrimp Cake hinted us on the fantastic dinner we are about to have.  The  pomelo and Sing Kamas Salad with Asian chili dressing is a great compliment that I just had to eat everything together.

Soup

US Mashed Potato Soup infused with Turmeric
I've never seen soup served like US Mashed Potato Soup infused with Turmeric.  I imagine there's a submarine in the middle of the ocean.  But, it is actually slow baked salmon, grapefruit and cilantro cream on top of a potato tot.  Aside from the intriguing appearance, the soup is splendid!  One of the best potato soup I've had yet!

Main Course

Honey Caramelized Pork Spareribs
The Honey Caramelized Pork Spareribs won over everyone.  The ribs so tasty and tender.

Dessert

US Potato Strawberry Cheese Cake
Last but definitely not the least was the US Potato Strawberry Cheese Cake.  I think it was the really catchy crumbly texture of this dessert that made it a great meal-ender.  

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
The menu conjured by executive sous chef Alex Destriza for Polo Bistro Pool Lounge has proved that every dish component is essential in the success of the dish.  The way he utilized the textures and flavors of the ingredients especially the US Potato is really remarkable.  It really inspired me to be more creative with my home-cooking.
