On the first day of March, the U.S. Potato Board kicks off USPotatobilities at top restaurants in the splendid Queen City of the South! Try the piquant USPotato rendition of Cebu’s creative chefs!  I tried them all when I hopped on a USPotato Safari.  I’ll tell you which ones are the must-try’s.

Cafe Marco at Marco Polo Hotel.  Chef Stefano Verrillo prepared a unique wine dinner.  We had Crispy US Potato Bread Roll on US Potato Skin–very crispy on the outside, soft  and chewy inside. For our palate-break, I was awed just by looking at the US Potato Faberge Egg sorbet—Granny Smith apple rolled in US Potato Skin and lemon.  And, it’s really refreshing!  For soup lovers, the layered flavors of Fish Chowder blended with puree of US Frozen Potato was exquisite. Chef Stefano reminded us in his baritone voice to “try not to mix the soup, so you get to savor each layer.”

Try the piquant USPotato rendition of Cebu’s creative chefs!  I tried them all when I hopped on a USPotato Safari.  I’ll tell you which ones are the must-try’s. Laguna Garden Café.  We had a scrumptious lunch prepared by Chef Raki Urbina at the upper level of Laguna Cafe, overlooking the Ayala greens.  One of my many favorite US Potato dishes is the Patatas Tinapa Croquetas with Pako Salad. The Okoy de Patatas was a wonderful surprise! All hands were on the table, crazily dipping the okoy in vinegar.  It’s really meant for sharing, but when you taste it, you’d want to have it all for yourself! As a dessert lover, I can’t say no to Buchi Halaya and Ube Patatas Halaya. How ingenious!
