MAYO – A Mexican resto in Binan, Laguna


Mayo – A Mexican resto in Binan, Laguna

I recently literally went out of town just to go to this specialty shop where I can get my supply of accessories needed for my costume in  complying with our party’s theme.

It was a surprise to find out that we captured a so rush hour and most people opted to walk than spent hours stuck in traffic. We had to walk not a few meters but a few kilometers or so just to make it before 6:00pm. It is the usual hour that this store rolls down their windows.

Unfortunately, we didn’t make it and I was really frustrated of not getting exactly what I needed and ended up with another store which supplies aren’t that complete.

Feeling the frustration right in my nerves, as we were walking, something lighted up my face. It is a quaint eatery that serves Mexican food! Yey! It had been days (or weeks) that I craved for Mexican food specifically during weekends when most Mexican restaurants are located outside my vicinity.

Without rice…

Coffee with Nachos?

To cut my story short, foodie buddy – Jen and I immediately entered this place and ordered for a burrito, nachos salad and quesadillas.

Not the usual corn chips… I think it’s molo wrappers..
quesa
Quesadillas – 3 cheeses!

They provide 2 different sauces – one that is not spicy and one that is spicy. While according to Jen, It isn’t spicy at all. Bicolana?

It somehow expelled some negative energies I accumulated for walking such distance only to find out that the store is already closed. And the frustration of not coming up with what I exactly crafted in my imagination.

My resilience took off on what I acquired and will make do with them, however I forgot about it all the while we were munching on our nachos and quesadillas. The burrito we had to bring home as we felt being full right away as we partnered them with a glassful of iced coffee.

It was weird though to pair Mexican food with coffee, but to no avail, it was all that they have.

Frap for the two of us..

The owner might have come up with several ideas which are staple for most, but the burrito seems weird to me as the attendant explained that theirs is without rice. So I even tried to convince him that it is not supposed to be called burrito because burritos has rice in it. If it is without rice as fillings, then it should be chimichanga. But he informed me that in some places, Burritos can come with other fillings without rice on it. Okay, accepted. We’re done arguing, I’m hungry. Lol!

Attendant dont’ want to look!

Upon seeing their version, they definitely researched for their offerings and did several tweaks like using molo wrappers for the nacho salad instead of the usual corn tortillas.

The quesadillas is swimming with sour cream too which normally, said cream is served separately.

The burrito was not wrapped by the usual pita bread, they used something similar with lumpia wrapper used for spring rolls and it is smaller compared to the usual serving of burritos.

Overall, we intended to go all the way from San Pedro to Binan from time to time if cravings for Mexican food arises, or if I’m lazy to make one, I have my own recipe which has been requested by my friends during occasion, and going to Binan once in a while won’t hurt just to get not the burritos but the quesadillas and nachos salad because honestly, we liked it. We also intend to try the tacos!

See you soon!

There had been a very few restaurants in San Pedro serving Mexican food. I actually knew just one – Snuggery cafe – that cute cafe 15 minutes away from home although I went there several times discovering that their nachos were out of stock. Probably because they are situated in front of a school and nachos is a favorite among teens alike.

So this blog came out as a surprise and unplanned. I think that place will be famous as long as they will continuously do improvements. They’re just a week old when we discovered them. Provecho! =)

They even provided a tv for their customers.

Mayo is located in Canlalay, Binan, Laguna. They are on Facebook too. =)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
