I noticed that there was a new restaurant beside Carlos Pizza. I recognized the familiar signage, it is Mile-Hi, possibly a branch of Mile-Hi Restaurant in John Hay, Baguio. It is known for its flamed grilled burgers.
I took its picture, but its blurry, so I'll take a shot next time.
I think Starbucks Coffee doesn't need any introduction. We've been meaning to have coffee in Starbucks Coffee Tagaytay Branch, but we never got to really go, as we are always diverted by other choices in One Destination... Anyway, I'm just posting this so coffee lovers would know there is a branch in Tagatay.
Pancake House is one of my favorite restaurants. I like their cozy ambience and wide range of foods, from pancakes to crepes, sandwiches, salads, meals and desserts.
Pancake House in Tagaytay has the same motif for the interior design as the other Pancake House branches. They have one thing other branches don't have: a grand view of Taal Volcano & Lake.
The staff are fast and efficient.
Favorite Dish: Pancake or crepes with blueberry topping; banana split; chicken potato salad; roastbeef meal
Antonio's Grill serves local cuisine, though as its name implies, it specializes in grilled meats or fish/seafoods. It looks like a typical Local Cuisine Resto, clean and air-conditioned, but there is no view of the Taal Volcano & Lake.
We ate only once at Antonio's Grill because we didn't like the slow service. We also noticed that they give more prompt attention to big groups.
The food was okay; tasted good, but not considered value for money. The volume of food served was not commensurate to the price per order.
Favorite Dish: No particular favorite.
Hen Lin is a popular Chinese Fastfood. In Metro Manila, you'll find small Hen Lin stalls in the Malls. In Tagaytay, it has a bigger place, occupying the first floor of the same building as Junzi Oriental Cuisine.
Favorite Dish: Call me weird, but I like their Chicken Feet. I also like their other dimsums like pork siomai and asado siopao.
Whenever we crave for delicious,hot Chinese wanton and noodle soup and dimsums, we pass by Junzi Oriental Cuisine. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor of a building, with a view deck that offers a panoramic view of Taal Volcano & Lake.
There's nothing like sipping hot Chinese tea (on the house) at a table near the breezy view deck while waiting for your order.
I must say we like the service (with a genuine smile) of the staff.
Favorite Dish: Wanton & noodle soup; siopao; pork siomai; sharksfin siomai
Terriyaki Boy in Tagaytay City has the usual minimalist interior decor of the same Japanese Restaurant in Makati, Pasay and Alabang. However, because it is located on a ridge (and Tagaytay at that) unlike the other branches in malls or commercial centers, it has the advantage of a beautiful frontage and backdoor view deck overlooking Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. Diners have a choice on the place to eat, whether inside the airconditioned room or non-airconditioned room leading to the backdoor viewdeck.
We like eating at Terriyaki Boy because they offer quality Japanese food at reasonable price, and we also like their fast, efficient service.
Favorite Dish: Futo maki, pork tonkatsu, shake sushi and pork shoga don
We went to Tagaytay during the Holy Week and we tried eating at Gallo Nero. The place is nice and relaxing. They also have a live performer that makes it more relaxing and entertaining. The staffs are friendly and attentive. We are also planning to stay at Alfonso Hotel for they might offer a nice and relaxing experience in Tagaytay too.
Favorite Dish: Their Grigliata di Pesce is superb! It is the freshest grilled seafoods that I've tried. It is grilled assorted seafoods with caper sauce on a bed of freshest fresh lettuce. Pizza is also good. Not to mention, pasta too.
The restaurant's ambiance makes you feel really relaxed. Better if you have a table on the second floor for a wonderful view of the Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. After your meal, take a stroll along their garden, take pictures and enjoy the view. It is absolutely breathtaking! Food is ok, more of a lutong bahay(Filipino home cooking).
Favorite Dish: Didn't really KNOW what we were served(we were on a tour) but it was palatable.
This place boast of the fact that all its ingredients are grown in their greenhouses using no fertilizers. It is famous for the edible flowers of different kinds that they mix with their salads. The food is served right to your table and refilled everytime you want. The ambience is classy and serene American garden in a greenhouse. This is not just a resto but also a bed and breakfast and a SPA. Weddings are also done here at times. Sonya herself is someone to look forward to coz of the clothes she wears while mingleing personally with her guests. After eating you can wander around in the garden and see for yourself where the vegetables (like lettuce for the salad) is grown.
Favorite Dish: Enjoy salad with a varierty of stuff to mix with to your heart's delight like fresh pineapples (which is a Trademark of Tagaytay), sweet mangoes (the sweetest in the world), capers, cucumber, carrots, cashew and all other things. Next they serve freshly basked bread and spreads like pesto, anchovies, olives and more. Then the pasta course which you can mix with all the toppings that they will put on your table like grilled salmon belly, olives, capers, shrimp, and mushrooms topped with your choice of chicken cream sauce or basic spaghetti sauce. Be sure to make room for desserts which comes in threes-three plates of different kinds-like turon (banana wrapped in spring roll with carmelized sugar), minatamis na kamote (sweet potatoes with carmelized brown sugar) and a decadent chocolate cake. Bring it all down with fresh dalandan juice with mint. Of cource you'll be full to the brim after eating all this delicious food so they serve you with their own special kind of terragon tea to aid gidesting all those delicious food.
Barako Coffee is the prime produce of Batangas. I don't know why and I can't exactly describe the taste but it is delicious! Just the aroma of this coffee will make all our caffeine radar go off. Now, you do not have to pick the beans and roast if yourself just to enjoy it. Just head out to Bag of Beans in Tagaytay and drink Barako coffee to your heart's delight or unless your heart gave in due to too much coffee. This is a favorite hang out for me and my friends since we are certified coffee-holics. Tables are set in between a canopy of trees to give a sense of privacy to diners. Wooden benches and terrace-like areas are also available just be sure to get there first. Barako coffee is not the only coffee available here, they added some sort of Arabica coffee in the menu. They also have all sorts of cakes, pies, pastry and bread as well as rice and pasta meals. You can also buy them frozen to take home to your family.
Favorite Dish: Bottomless coffee, blueberry cheesecake, apple pie ala mode and raisin bread hot from the oven.
Tagaytay is famous for its beef (something about the grass that the cows eat, plus the cool weather makes the difference some say) among others. To taste the deliciousness of this beef, head out to Leslie's where food is authentic Filipino plus a few surprises. While eating, get serenaded by their house band to liven up the meal and make it a celebration.
Favorite Dish: Bulalo and crispy kangkong
If you frequently visit Tagaytay, it would be close to impossible if you have not heard of Carlo's Pizza. Delicious thin-crust pizza made this place well-known plus being the first resto in the city to offer Italian food. I know, you might say what makes it unique if it offers Italian food. Well, its in Tagaytay so aside from enjoying the food while looking out to Taal Vaolcano, you have to eat fast unless you like cold pizza or want to stay indoors and miss out all the view and weather the city has to offer. Now they have braches in Baguio (SM Baguio) and in Ortigas near where I live but to enjoy the pizza where it originally came from is never the same.
Favorite Dish: Pizza of course!
Everytime we go to Tagaytay, we always pass by Mushroom Burger to buy their big, juicy mushroom burgers. The place has expanded their menu to meals with mushroom-based dishes priced P200 and below.
You can also buy fresh mushrooms like the oyster, tree fungus ("taingang daga") and ***ake varieties.
The restaurant has free guarded parking space and a mini-aviary which children love.
Favorite Dish: Their Mushroom Burger is a longtime favorite. I don't even mind remembering the price, I just remember the original, delectable taste. The mushroom burger is not only a healthier substitute for beef burger, it is also loaded with fiber, so expect to have a "cleansing" experience after a few hours of eating it.
Dencio's Bar & Grill Restaurant is known for its Filipino dishes served in garden setting dining areas.
In Tagaytay, they have Pugad Dencio's which is possibly a franchise outlet. My husband and daughter were a little disappointed that some of the dishes were not cooked exactly the way it is being done at the original restaurant, but in fairness, we still finished all the food we ordered with gusto.
The place was full to capacity the last time we visited, but no problem since they had a cool waiting area where we sat and studied the menu, and proceeded to order. Waiting wasn't boring because of the nice ambience. Fortunately, we were seated in in the veranda area in less than 15 minutes.
Our waiter was alert to our needs, so it was worth giving him P100 tip.
Favorite Dish: "Sisig" Supreme is a longtime favorite, since their version of "Sisig" is less greasy. They use chopped crispy pork meat rather than chopped pig ears and cheek. It is only P195/sizzling plate; we can not have enough of it, so we always order 2 sizzling plates.
Sinuglaw is another favorite; it is a combo dish of "sinugbang liempo" (grilled pork) and "kinilaw" (fresh fish marinated in vinegar, seasoned with chopped ginger, garlic, onions and finger chili). It is only P185/order.
Our favorite appetizers are calamares (deep fried breaded squid rings) for only P153/order and Crispy "Kangkong" ( tempura style swamp cabbage leaves) for only P120.
Their fruit shakes, especially the watermelon shake were great! (P70/shake)
