Mother’s Day is just around the corner.

The holiday that honors motherhood will be observed on May 14, Sunday.

If you are looking for an edible gift for your mother or planning what to order for your Mother’s Day gathering, Interkasyon rounded up a list of sweet treats and dishes to order and restaurants to try for that special day.

Red Ribbon’s Mango-Choco Marjolaine Cake

Red Ribbon is now offering a multi-flavored and textured cake called Mango-Choco Marjolaine cake. This cake is a combination of sweet mangoes and rich chocolate filling in between crunchy and chewy wafer layers and praline cream. It is also finished off with roasted cashew nuts.

The cake is available in junior and regular sizes, with price that starts at P899 and P1,299, respectively.

This can be ordered through the Red Ribbon app or its delivery website, as well as through delivery apps Grab Food and foodpanda.

Those who wish to purchase via takeouts may visit the Red Ribbon stores. The selected stores offering the Mango-Choco Marjolaine cake can be viewed here:  https://bit.ly/3ApatwH.

Mang Inasal’s Mother’s Day treats

Mang Inasal, the country’s grill expert, is also honoring moms through back-to-back treats this Mother’s Day.

“We want to make all our mommy customers feel how much Mang Inasal values them and their support to us over the past two decades,” Mike Castro, Mang Inasal business unit head  said.

“We will make them enjoy their Ihaw-Sarap favorites and Unli-Saya experience whether dine-in, takeout, or delivery,” he added.

Mothers can get a free extra scoop of Selecta Ube Ice cream for every purchase of Extra Creamy Halo-Halo Regular via dine-in, takeout, and delivery. This promotion began last May 8 and will run until May 14.

The grill fast food chain also made the season extra special with the launch of Mang Inasal Palabok Fiesta Size, a big serving of the well-loved noodle dish for a group of ten.

You may complete the Mother’s Day gathering with the now-popular bundled group meals, Mang Inasal Family Fiesta (good for four to six people) and Buddy Fiesta (good for two to three people). These come with bilaos of Ihaw-Sarap Chicken and Pork Inasal favorites with a platter of Java Rice.
