is a time when we show our mothers how special and appreciated they are. This year, my wife and I decided to bring Mama Flor (my wife’s mom), along with Papa, to The Gustavian in Ayala Terraces.
We are very grateful for my parents-in-law’s generosity. They have done a many great things for us as a couple. We wanted to treat them out, Mama Flor, most especially. Another guest in our Mother’s Day treat was Lenmar, my wife’s cousin, who was celebrating his 24th birthday.
The Gustavian is located near the new parking area of Ayala Center Cebu. There is also a branch in Mactan, while the original restaurant is located in Paseo Saturnino, Ma. Luisa Road, Banilad.
We made our reservations for a 12 noon lunch, but we arrived around 12:30. Surprisingly, we were not famished yet. Mama, Stephie, Lenmar, and I went ahead of Papa because at that time, he was watching the Game 7 of the Lakers vs. Nuggets series.
Lenmar, the birthday boy, is now 24 years old. Yet, he still looks like an 18 year old lad who is fresh out of high school.
We pored through the menu and made our choices.
We ordered some pizza, which is practically a clone of the pizzas from Pizzarea Michelangelo. I really loved the crust. I am pretty sure it would go well with, beer while watching NBA or football.
Steph picked Carbonara as our pasta dish. We basically shared everything.
For fish, Mama picked Cream Dory.
We also had a special barbecue selection that had beef, chorizo, and bacon.
After our meal was done, we felt so full. But, we still had enough room for dessert. We had Creme Brulee. Yum!!!
It was truly a special day. To all the mothers, Happy Mother’s Day.
