(SPOT.ph) Moms and mom figures are, for a lot of folks, the most important women in their lives—and with Mother’s Day coming up this weekend it’s only right to show them your appreciation. As far as expressing your love goes, you can’t beat bonding over a hearty spread of great food! Whether you’re looking to dine out or stay at home, you’ve got plenty of tasty options—the most drool-worthy of which we round up below.
Hit up these restaurants and online sellers for scrumptious eats this Mother’s Day 2022:
Squid Ink Bamboo Rice at Tatatito
Filipino food is practically a no-fail when dining out with Mom—and if she’s looking to have a bite that’s at once novel yet familiar, we say head over to Tatatito and try their Squid Ink Bamboo Rice. With rice turned dark and briny with squid ink, cooked in bamboo, and given pops of sweetness and juiciness with roasted garlic and cherry tomatoes, it’s the kind of rice dish that pairs beautifully with just about any viand—but is also tasty enough that you could have it on its own.
Tatatito is at OPL Building, Carlos Palanca Street, Legazpi Village, Makati City. You can also check out their Facebook page.
International Eats at City of Dreams
Go ahead and take Mom on a tour of global flavors by trooping over to City of Dreams, as the hotel’s got special dishes and menus across their different restaurants. At Crystal Dragon they’ve got Cantonese and regional Chinese specials like the Double-Boiled Chicken Soup with Baby Abalone and Himematsutake Mushroom; for a Japanese-style bite head to Nobu Manila and go for their brunch buffet that features sushi, sashimi, skewers, and more. Haliya’s got your back if you love Filipino fare—including their famed Haliya Adobo with foie gras—and for dessert, drop by Café Society and pick up a Chocolate Rose Bouquet or Hazelnut Praline Passion Fruit Cake to take home.
City of Dreams is at Entertainment City corner Macapagal Avenue, Aseana Avenue, Parañaque City. You can also check out their Facebook page.
Thai-Style Ribeye, Roasted Halibut + More from Carlito’s Catering
