I never thought that doing a pub crawl will be this fun! Overflowing cocktails, bar chows and dishes, we went on to our 3rd stop right after Jose Cuervo Tequileria - A'TODA MADRE!
|A'Toda Madre Tequila Bar - Poblacion|
The name intrigued me so I went to Google Search to check. According to Google Translate, it's a Spanish word that means "Every Mother". Urban Dictionary though lists it as a Mexican slang that means "something is totally awesome". I'll go with the Mexican Slang because this bar's menu screams Mexican food!
|More tha a 100 Tequila variants!|
A'Toda Madre is a Tequila Bar and is the first one in the Metro. They have over 100 varieties of Tequila. They offer the best tequila experience because they only use 100% Blue Agave.

I know you're thinking Jose Cuervo when you hear tequila because admit it, if you have not drowned yourself with it during your school days, you should have seen or tried it even once at least. But that's not what you'll get here. No Jose Cuervo - just 100% pure agave tequila!
|A'Toda Madre - inside and outside the bar!|
A look inside A'Toda Madre will give you hand painted murals in every available wall.
|Some of the decors inside the store.|
You'll notice colorful skulls depicting a Mexican holiday honoring those who have departed - Dia de los Muertos. Nothing scary or weird, I actually found them interesting and beautiful.
|Elotes Callejeros for 120Php|
Elotes Callejeros was first served. It looked like your ordinary Mexican Corn with spices etc. but when I tried it, it blew me away! The BEST Elote there is! Grilled and buttered sweet corn, shredded then mixed with mayo chipotle, feta cheese and Mexican spices - I loved the kick of heat!
|Nachos Gigante for 450Php|
Fried chips x chicken flakes x beans x jalapenos x pico de gallo x salsa verde with cheese and sour cream sauce. Loaded and delicious!
|Calamari for 240Php (regular) | 480Php (large)|
Simple yet well done! The squid rings were lightly battered but still had that crunch. Well seasoned an tasty - best when dipped into the chipotle sauce!
|An assortment of Tacos!|
They also served an assortment of soft shell tacos but unfortunately, I wasn't able to try any.
Pollo De Chipotle
For the cocktails, they prepared the following using Locally Juices ---
Sweet and Sour - using Kamias juice
Vitamin Sea - using Calamansi juice
Tamarita - using Tamarind juice
Island Fever - using Guyabano juice
|A'Toda Madre Cocktails using Locally Juices!|
Island fever and Tamarita were my favorites!
I am definitely going back to this place! Interested to try their nachos and quite curious how the 100% pure agave tequila would taste like.
