Here's Where You and Mom Can Have a Food Trip This Mother's Day
Show her your love through food!
(SPOT.ph) Nothing compares to the feeling of coming home to a meal lovingly prepared by your mom—a feeling you're sure to miss once you've moved out to live on your own. To show your mom how much you appreciate all that she's done for you, from preparing your baon every morning when you were a kid to making sure there's food waiting on the table for you after a long day, why not take her out on a food trip on Mother's Day? If you happen to find yourself at Forbes Town this weekend, here's where to go:
Known for offering familiar flavors through gourmet comfort food, Mulberry Door is the perfect place to catch up with Mom. Try any of their best-selling paellas, but don't miss the Apple and Q-Rizo Salpicao (P390), Matteo's Lamb Burger with Homemade Taro Chips (P580), and Luca's Chicken Kiev with Mashed Potatoes (P380)—dishes named after Panlilio's sons. You'll get a free flan if you spend at least P1,000 this Sunday.
We're sure your mom will adore the retro chic interiors at Stacy’s, where you can have your fill of American-style comfort food and all-day breakfast meals. Not sure what to get? Try the Big Breakfast Bangers (P235) or Stacy Jones Tapa (P240). Don't forget to order a milkshake to share with Mom!
Gone are the days when your mom had to bug you not to leave the greens on your plate. Show her you're embracing a healthy lifestyle at Frieda's (formerly called SUSI)—we heard moms are in for a special treat here on Mother's Day. Their vegan menu is full of gluten-free, sustainable, yet flavorful dishes. Try their plant-based Mac and Geez (P305) or Vegan Ramen (P395)—they might just convince you to go vegan.
Da Tang Jardin
Go on a culinary adventure featuring multiple Chinese regions—Shandong, Cantonese, Szechuan, Jiangsu, Hunan, Zhejiang, Fujian, and Anhui at Da Tang Jardin. It's run by the award-winning Master William Liu, who specializes on modern Chinese cuisine infused with Taiwanese cooking techniques. The DaTang Three Cup Chicken (P350), their bestseller, won't disappoint, but you can also try the Quick-Fried Squid in Honey Sauce (P280) and Deep Fried Chicken in Thai Chili Sauce with Seasonal Fruit (P200).
Is your mom a fan of Thai food? As the name suggests, Just Thai will give you a straightforward Thai cuisine experience. No gimmicks and fancy gourmet frills—just honest-to-goodness authentic Thai flavors. Try their Tom Yum (P190), Pad Thai (P280), and Poh Piah Tod or Spring Rolls (P290). Finish off your meal with a glass of zesty Lemongrass Juice (P80) or one-of-a-kind Tamarind Juice (P80).
Forbes Town is at Burgos Circle, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.
