Chef Mau Mobile Fastfood - Liliw Laguna

Nowadays finding a fierce restaurant with a reasonable price tab is as tricky as a single person looking for decent date. It would seem easy at first; but as you partake in the whole experience, it all ends up on a sour note. That’s why instead of playing the field, my friends and I opt to go out of town.

Traveling to nearby provinces is something my friends and I would fancy during weekends. No occasion and not much convincing required. We can endure all weather just to drive outside the chaotic scenes of tinsel town. One place we regularly visit is Laguna. Why? Our friend Gerry has a rest house there and travel time is not that bad. Remember, free accommodation is the key to a cheap out-of-towers.

We discovered Chef Mau through our friend, She. Her family is from Laguna and she knows what’s fierce and what’s not.

Chef Mau would appear like a typical Filipino restaurant operating in the suburb where food is drowning in oil. This is how I felt when I entered the place. As we further went inside, we were welcomed by a friendly waiter as if her smile will tear off her head into two. For real! But of course, customer service efforts count, always. So she gets a merit for that.

A quick glance at the menu and it looks promising. It’s like sizing up somebody and that person gets a check mark on most boxes? That’s what I am trying to say.

We ordered Fillet Mignon, Tofu Steak, Chicken Cordon Bleu and Laing. Not to mention a hefty amount of rice and Coke Zero. All of these food for roughly 700 Philippines peso; to be shared by 5 people – just do that math. But I guarantee that the quality of food is good for its caliber. After my Chef Mau experience, all my presumptions with the place vanished. It was a good experience all together. We were told that the Owner and chef used to work for Le Souffle. I guess that’s the tried and tested formula. Get as much kitchen experience with prime restaurants in Manila and operate you own away from it - where ingredients are cheaper and maintaining people under your payroll is easier to manage.

Here are some pictures of the food we tried at Chef Mau. Too bad the favorite of Oui is not here – Laing.

Coming from Makati, take Laguna exit from SLEX, turn right after Pagsanjan Market and go straight ahead. This is approximately less than 3-hour drive from Makati. If you are surrounded by crazy people during the drive, you can probably get there in 2 hours or probably not at all.

If you want to get in touch with them, here are the details:
