Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, Cucina’s Weekday Buffet Madness


Cucina’s Weekday Madness

Because I know everyone is craving for and is looking for affordable yet quality buffets. Here is another one! For only 1100php nett weekday lunch, you can enjoy Marco Polo’s Cucina Weekday Madness buffet. March will be a month of madness as Marco Polo Ortigas Manila invites its guests to indulge in Cucina’s all-new set of featured cuisines and dishes for a special limited discounted offer of the lunch and dinner buffet on all Mondays to Thursdays this month, highlighting the next array of 7 Days, Seven Reasons.



The flavors of the Japanese Cuisine will give a unique experience on all Mondays of the month with its wide selection of sushi. Tuesdays are all for the new dish as Fideuà will headline the whole buffet. This Valencian seafood dish will give every paella-lover a new-found love. On Wednesdays, the taste of Thai cuisine will satisfy diners’ cravings for everything sweet, sour, hot, and salty.


Paella Cooking Station

Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s Executive Chef, Lluis Cantons Pesarrodona, a local of Catalan, invites guests to indulge in Cucina’s signature dish, the Best Paella in Town, freshly served and cooked a la minute, on all Thursdays of the month.


Paella Station

I was fortunate enough to have tried Marco Polo’s buffet on a Tuesday, which featured the Spanish dish, Fideua. But they did not only serve Fideua that day, they also featured other varieties of Paella. Marco Polo Ortigas Manila is known for their Paella, having a Catalan Executive Chef heading their kitchen. They have the best paella in Manila! I truly enjoyed their Paella selection, they have Seafood, Mixta, Negra, Pinoy, and of course, the noodle based Paella, Fideua.


Salad Bar

They have other more stations to satisfy your craving, Fresh Seafood, Japanese Sushi Bar, Salad/Raw Bar, Chinese Noodle/Dimsum, Carvings, Pasta Station, Filipino, Indian, and Dessert.



Don’t forget to end your journey with their extensive dessert selection, which includes Ice Cream.



Weekends may not be included in this offer, but guests can still enjoy new dishes freshly-made and prepared to tempt the taste buds. Partnering with different organizations in providing sustainable fisheries and conserve marine ecosystems, Fridays will be highlighting carefully resourced sustainable tuna. Savour a mouth-watering Cucina favorite, the Cuchinillo, every Saturdays. Each bite with the suckling pig will give a mouthful of flavor that is just plain good.


Fresh Seafood

The buffet restaurant is famous for its wide selection of fresh seafood that’s why on Sundays, these fresh-caught comfort food will take the spotlight.
