I remember Krisha (I shall have a picture of her posted in this blog, soon. hahaha) inviting me to hit Maginhawa Street and try out this restaurant called Gayuma ni Maria (which roughly means Love Potion of Maria). The restaurant name itself is thought-provoking so I gave her a laugh in response to the invite. Don’t get me wrong, I got so curious and thought it was a very interesting place. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a single chance to go there so I grabbed the opportunity of paying it a visit after THE Lou shoot at UP. Hahaha.
It was kind of hard to find because it’s a little too far from the “food district” of Maginhawa. This one is almost near Anonas. Plus they didn’t have flashy signs, so to avoid difficulties spotting it, keep your eyes focused along the street! It looks pretty much like a residential house turned into a restaurant. Good news! It has ample parking space so, yay! This restaurant has an aphrodisiac concept. Everything, as in EVERYTHING is in accordance to the theme, and I find it very creative!
Look at the different gayuma recipes decorated on the wall!
A closer look at one of the “gayuma recipes”. Each recipe is complete with description/purpose of love potion, materials needed, instructions, and even the perfect moon phase to “cook” the recipe! I wonder if it really works though. (As if naman may paggagamitan ako nito. Hahahaha)
Love potion recipe!
Louie actually said (in a serious manner):
“Paano kaya ako makakakuha ng hair strand?”
Don’t worry, I will lend you my hairbrush.
Loooove the ambiance!
He got the Nilasing ni Eba si Adan. Pork loin marinated in beer and apple! Yum!
And I got the Please Be Careful With My Heart, which comes with a serving of a whole garlic! I love garlic! Vampires, beware.
“The rice” na lang siguro yung caption nito, para safe. If you know what I mean. Hehe. Creativity points, plus 3!
Better Than Sex chocolate cake! I swear this is the best chocolate cake ever!! (craving right now) :( :(
