A Taste of Istanbul at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila


Savour the true flavours of Istanbul at the world’s kitchen, as Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s Cucina celebrates the capital city’s vibrant taste and sensual aromas with guest Chef Gürsel Keleş from October 3 to 15, 2018.

Born and raised in Turkey, Chef Gürsel has always been an advocate of his hometown’s cuisine. His experience ranges from different world-class hotels and restaurants such as Sheraton and The Grand Blue Sky Hotel. He is currently the chairman of Eurasian Chefs Association, and has organized multiple cuisine festivals across Turkey, Germany, Lebanon, and Belgium, to name a few. Twenty years after working in different hotels and restaurants, he opened Fish of North, in 2005 which showcases the finest catch from the sea.

Alongside Cucina’s expert culinary team, Chef Gürsel features a menu that transports foodies to the heart of Istanbul. Start the meal with Circassian Chicken Salad, followed by hot-off-the-grill skewers of chicken, red snapper, lamb and eggplant. 

Signature dishes include Steamed Sea Bass in Paper with Vegetables and Herbs (Kagritta Levrek), Pan-Roasted Lamb with Smoked Eggplant Puree (Hunkar Begendi), and Spiced Chicken with Olive Coriander Relish. 

Top it all off with the staple Pistachio Baklava (Ore Baklava) for dessert, Candied Pumpkin with Walnuts (Kabak Tatlisi), and Fried Dough Balls in Rose Scented Syrup (Lokma).
