The month of May is fast approaching and once again, it is the time of the month where we give honor to our mother's and all mother's around the world.
Aside from buying her flowers, writing her a card and taking her to a spa, why don't you treat Mom to a gastronomic delight in a fancy restaurant?
Why don't you bring Mom to Toro.
Toro Restaurant & Bar in BGC, would like to invite everyone to bring their mothers, wives, grandmothers and even the whole family to their restaurant for their Mother's Day Special Degustation Menu starting on May 1 to May 31, 2012.
Toro is a 1 year old restaurant in the heart of Bonifacio Gobal City that brings together the fusion of flavors from Tijuana, Mexico to Okinawa, Japan.
I would write more about Toro on my next post but for now, I would like to introduce their menu items for their Mother's Day promo.
Sopa De Ostiones- osyters and tomatoes served with hearbs and spices
Tomato-based soup with white beans, oysters, leeks and crispy sotanghon noodles. This was like a Mexican bean soup with a touch of Japanese flavors from the oysters and cheese in fried lumpia wrapper. The soup was light with a little hint of seafood flavor from the oysters and crunchiness from the fried noodles.
Cranberries and Bleu Cheese Salad- organic greens with cranberry jelly, bleu cheese and walnuts in strawberry balsamic dressing
Mother's will truly love this one of a kind salad that presents a beautiful arrangement of fresh lettuce, crispy noodle stalks and chives. Paired with a bed of cucumber slices topped with cranberry jelly, candied walnuts and bleu cheese, this is something different and worth to try.
The strawberry balsamic dressing is mixed with a special sauce that gives a kick of tolerable spiciness to the salad.
