A One-of-a-Kind Cooking Experience for Moms at Salu the Filipino Restaurant

During the past few weeks, I would catch myself thinking about how moms are amazing. It’s as if they can do anything, from cooking meals we all look forward to after a long day at work (or school!), to doing school projects, and even to being there for us when nothing seems to make sense.
