If you want authentic Cantonese Cuisine with a posh luxurious ambiance, there’s no other place to be in but the Lotus Court of the Marco Polo Hotel Davao. I’ve been to the Lotus Court a few times before, and it has never failed to satiate my cravings for delicious, clean-tasting Cantonese dishes.
Most Chinese meals begin with a platter of cold cuts. And that from Lotus Court is a cut above the rest. Check out the Roast Suckling Pig Combination Platter. It consists of generous (not to mention, tasty) servings of Century Egg, Jellyfish Strips, Steamed Chicken (Hainanese [white] chicken), and Pork Asado (grilled or braised marinated pork). The centerpiece is slivers of tender and tasty Roast Suckling Pig. It’s the perfect dish to prepare one’s senses for the Cantonese feast they are about to have.
Roast Peking Duck
The centerpiece of any Chinese meal is good Peking Duck. It is, after all, considered as the national dish of China. Special bred ducks are slaughtered, seasoned, and dry roasted in a special open. It is traditionally eaten with scallions, cucumber, and sauce wrapped in a special wrap or pancake. And this is exactly how the Lotus Court serves their Peking Duck.
