SIMPLE food and beverages would be served at the luncheon after the swearing in of  Rodrigo Duterte as the 16th President of the Philippines on June 30 at Malacañang Palace in keeping with the incoming chief executive’s order to hold a modest ceremony.

Lisette Marques, member of the inaugural committee, told on Monday that there would only be five menus for the occasion.


Marques said the menu will be monggo guisado in cups, lumpia, pandesal with kesong puti and beef longganisa. For desserts, durian tartlets and fried bananas would be on the table.

Guest will be served with dalandan juice and pine-mango.


Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said Malacañang Palace caterer would be in charge of the menu.

“Via Mare is in charge and Glenda Baretto will be rendering variations on classic Filipino food,” Abella told INQUIRER. net in a text message on Monday.

“It should have the expected Via Mare touch,” he added.

Abella had said before that 627 individuals were on the list of guests for Duterte’s inauguration.
