Cebu City, Philippines — UNO, the anchor restaurant serving both international and local cuisines in buffet or a la carte style, has recently launched the Filipino Food Festival banking on the Modern Filipino Taste. This amazing event was spearheaded by power chef couple Chef Roland and Chef Jackie Laudico.
Chef Lau and Chef Jackie have captured the imagination and taste buds of gourmets and foodies alike through the concept restaurants they have established in their 17 years in the catering and restaurant business. Their imaginative approach to cooking and their artistic presentations found culmination in their celebrated restaurant called Guevarra’s in San Juan, Metro Manila.
Their advocacy to promote native Filipino flavors has given them local and international respect, and runs parallel to the philosophy that animates and inspires the F&B outlets at The Waterfront Group of Hotels. The conglomerate has always prided itself in presenting a host of culinary cultures in its many outlets. UNO leads its portfolio of F&B outlets.
UNO Restaurant at the Waterfront
With its easygoing vibe, warm service, and an extensive all-day buffet of mouthwatering international and Filipino culinary favorites, UNO has become Waterfront’s must-visit destination and foodie paradise in Cebu and Davao. The dining outlet’s famous buffet offers Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, American and International dishes created by its inventive chefs. It comes as no surprise that UNO has become the favored dining address of business and corporate individuals in search of great tasting food and quick service, families that expect a wide variety of food choices and a leisurely ambiance, and foodies who simply want excellent flavors that come from fresh ingredients and food done to perfection.
With “UNO’s Modern Filipino Taste: A Filipino Feast for All Senses”, the restaurant broadens and enriches its already diverse culinary offerings, thus helping in the further evolution of the Filipino food and cooking culture. The Laudicos’ imagination, creativity and signature flavors will certainly also find a welcoming venue in UNO at Waterfront Insular Hotel when the festival goes to Davao.
Guests and food aficionados will, no doubt, find delight in the many tasty treats included in the festival, such as Sisig Baskets (assorted sisig in rice baskets topped with garlic aioli), Palabok Bites (the goodness of palabok topped with Carcar Chicharon) and Sinigang Bites (tamarind-spiced kangkong chips topped with bangus mousse) to whet the appetite.
There are also cold appetizers such as Kinilaw Spoons (fresh fish in spicy calamansi and capsicum emulsion), Danggit Macaroon stuffed with Laing Mousse and Shrimps, and Sushi-Noy (Filipino maki topped with matambaka flakes). Hearty soups include Nilarang Bouillabaisse (a tasty version of the classic Cebuano fish soup) and Pochero Corn Chowder (beef soup with Corn puree).
And for heftier appetites, a list of filling and delicious entrees await, among them the Kaldereta Pie (spicy lamb stew topped with potato mash and cheese), Balbacua Uno (slow cooked ox-tail, beef knuckles and skin UNO style), San Miguel Battered Fish with Buro Cream (Filipino-style beer battered fish served with creamy fermented rice sauce), among others.
