Let’s face it: mothers are the best! They’re our first teachers, cheerleaders and friends all rolled into one. We may not always get along with them, but we can always count on them when we need them the most.
Sofitel Philippine Plaza knows this, which is why the five-star luxury hotel is paying homage to the women who raised us with special (and healthy!) Mother’s Day treats.
Inspired by Moms at Spiral
Remember how our moms would always say, “An apple a day keeps the doctors away”? That was just one of the many ways our mothers tried to instill a healthy and happy lifestyle in their kids frm an early age. Now, it’s time to return the favor with some hearty and nutritious special dishes from Sofitel’s well-loved Spiral restuarant this Mother’s Day weekend. The new dishes are a product of a special collaboration between Spiral’s master chefs and celebrated athletes — Volleyball star and TV host Gretchen Ho and Olympic silver medalist and Airforce officer first class Hidilyn Diaz — and, of course, their mothers.

For mothers want to start a diet fit for an Olympian, Spiral’s chefs have masterfully crafted fresh makis Toro Taku Maki Rolls, Rainbow Maki Rolls, Cactus Maki Rolls and Lapu-Lapu steamed with Brown Bean Sauce for protein and carbs, as well as a Chicken Ginseng Soup for a post-workout energy boost. But if your mother wants a little more spice in her dish (like Gretchen does), then take her out for some Avocado Prawn with Wasabi De-light Mayonnaise, Thai Chicken Green Curry and Braised Chicken with Black Mushrooms and Fresh Ginseng.
Sounds good? Well, it gets even better because Sofitel’s partners for this special celebration, Zara and Nuxe Paris, will be awarding the most fashionable and best-dressed mothers at the Mother’s Day Brunch this May 14, 2017.
Saturday lunch in Spiral on May 13, 2017 is set at P3,450 for adults and at P1,720 for children, while dinner is set at P3,550 for adults and P1,781 for children.

P.s.: If your mother wants to stay poolside on her special day, you can always take her to The Sunset Bar’s Mother’s Day Special Barbecue Buffet, where they’ll serve favorite Filipino fare such as fresh grilled seafood, Adobo, Kare-Kare, Sinigang and Pininyahang Manok alongside native desserts and free flowing iced tea, local beer and cocktails.
