Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and what’s the best way to remind your mom how much you love her? By treating her to delicious food! 

Too bad the new normal is staying home — you can’t just buy a bouquet of flowers or get reservations at your mom’s favorite resto. Luckily, many restaurants have opened for food deliveries during this ECQ period. Ordering is also made so much easier, because you can conveniently pay using your GCash Mastercard! All you have to do is order straight from your preferred restaurant’s website or food delivery app, then use your GCash Mastercard as a debit or credit card payment option.

Below is a list of some of the best restaurants where you can order food for delivery. Don’t forget to pay using your GCash Mastercard for a convenient and cashless transaction!

Craving Chicken?

There are so many options to choose from if you’re thinking of ordering chicken. There’s Jollibee, McDonald’s, Bonchon, Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings, Max’s Restaurant, Andok’s, and Baliwag Lechon Manok! It all comes down to whatever kind of chicken your mom likes the best, aside from her own cooking!

Breakfast in Bed

For a change, why not surprise your mom with breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day? Order some bread from Pan de Manila and pair it with her favorite coffee blend from Bo’s Coffee. Or order waffles with chicken from Pancake House, and let her know how much you love and care for her as soon as she wakes up!

Asian Cuisine

Feel like eating something unique to celebrate such a special day? Order online from Marugame Udon, Hanamaruken, and Saboten for Japanese food, or North Park Noodles and Chowking for Chinese. Make sure to create a list before confirming your orders. There’s so many good dishes at these restaurants and you’ll surely get carried away!

Tex-Mex Cuisine

We can’t deny the fact that your mom cooks the best version of pork sinigang or kare-kare, but how about a change in cuisine? Add a little spice to your feast by ordering naked burritos from Army Navy, crunchy tacos from Taco Bell, or Mexican rice and quesadillas from Gringo.

Pizza Party

You can never go wrong with pizza for any celebration. Even if you can’t go out, some branches of Pizza Hut, Pizza Telefono, S&R Pizza, Shakey’s Pizza are open to complete your Mother’s Day feast. Don’t forget to consider your mom’s preference — you may love pizza with pineapple but remember, it’s a special day for her, not for you!
