UNO's Modern Filipino Taste: A Filipino Feast for All Senses

Words and photos by Dems Angeles of Dangmusings (Demsangeles.com)

The Filipino cuisine is celebrated in the Queen City of the South through a two-month special culinary fest!


Everytime I hear Chefs Roland “Lau” and Jackie Laudico's name, I know that at the heart of every venture they do is their passion for Filipino food and cooking culture. Their latest collaboration, with the Waterfront Group of Hotel's UNO in Mactan and Lahug, is a festival of flavors.

“UNO's Modern Filipino Taste: A Filipino Feast for All Senses” showcases the Laudico's reinvention of well-loved Filipino and Cebuano dishes.


Hot appetizers

Start off with a selection of hot and cold appetizers such as Sisig Baskets, Palabok Bites and Sinigang Bites. Hearty soups include Nilarang Bouillabaisse (a tasty version of the classic Cebuano fish soup) and Pochero Corn Chowder (beef soup with corn puree).


L-R clockwise: Spicy Seaweeds and Seafood (blue bowl), 3 Kinds Mango Salad (yellow bowl), Kinilaw Spoons, Grilled Ensalada, Lumpia Sariwa Roll, Sushi-Noy

Grab a Puso Surprise to pair off with the savory entrees. You can also choose from two kinds of paella or ask for rice / pasta cooked the way you like it.

Head over to the Dessert station for a taste of Chef Jackie's creations – assorted kakanin, cakes, tsokolate-riched ones and halo-halo!




Tsokolate Oh with Peanut Butter Mousse seemed to be everyone's fave.

“UNO's Modern Filipino Taste: A Filipino Feast for All Senses” happens at UNO in Waterfront Airport Hotel & Casino from June 8 to August 31 and Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino from June 9 to August 31.

The food festival will find its way to Waterfront Insular Hotel in Davao later this year.
