General Douglas MacArthur Week – What was General Douglas MacArthur’s Favorite Filipino Dish?

Mar 12, 2017



President Manuel L. Quezon’s favorite dish was the Supreme Organic chicken, nicknamed “Manhoco” (after “Manila Hotel Company) while General Douglas MacArthur‘s choice was deep fried Celebes lapu-lapu with tropical fruits salsa, and maruya fritter on the side.


This was The General’s favorite while he was staying at the penthouse of the Manila Hotel when he was field marshal of the Philippine army and advisor to the Commonwealth of the Philippines during the middle to late 1930’s.
