New Chef at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu

Five-star hotel Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, known for being a leader in culinary excellence in and out of the Queen City of the South, recently appointed chef Juanito Abangan as the hotel’s first Filipino executive chef. Chef Juanito’s love affair with the MPPC kitchen started in 2007 when he became chef de partie assigned to the Pool Bar. He then explored other opportunities outside of the hotel, but ultimately came back to open Blu Bar & Grill as the junior sous chef. He then rose from the ranks, and the rest is history. Truly, MPPC’s commitment to world-class cuisine is evident as they have entrusted the kitchen to someone with an enormous passion for food.
