Quote:
Just when I thought I have tried Tagaytay's best and finest, someone whispered to me that perhaps not all since I haven't tried the best kesong puti.Kesong Puti (white cheese) is fresh, soft cheese and usually paired with hot pan de sal. It is made from fresh cow's milk, salt and a coagulant called rennet. The mere thought of kesong puti made me crave for its slightly salty, rich and creamy taste so I made sure we stop at Mr. Moo's Fresh Milk and Kesong Puti on our way back to Manila. The stall can be pretty easy to miss going down from Tagaytay to Sta. Rosa Exit, one must really keep an eye and spot the colorful signage. Try not to miss it, but be careful as well when negotia...Read More

If you're planning a weekend in Tagaytay and want a homey accommodation instead of the usual hotel experience, then Canyon Woods is the place to go.Canyon Woods is the pioneer of the residential hotel-resort concept in Tagaytay. Its amenities are exclusive for property owners and club members, but if you to know someone who can extend his privileges to you, then you're one lucky dude!Having said that the facilities are exclusive, I also meant to imply that they are impressive and in great condition. They better be since a club share is worth almost half a million pesos.We were booked in 2 Casitas; each room is good for 2 to 4 people and is quite spacious (the accomm...Read More

When I asked The Hubby to drive us to Tagaytay, approximately 2 hours from Manila, after our visit to the pedia, he snorted, "What are we going to do there?". And I understand his hesitation. We've been there more frequent that we've been to Luneta and have explored its every nooks and turns. Despite The Hubby's reluctance, we went to Picnic Grove with no particular plan but just to take the kids to a weekend date. We've been there a couple of times and we know already what to expect - horseback riding, the zip line adventure (that we didn't try) and the view of Taal Volcano. We reckon just the breathe of fresh air is worth the trip already.That's what we thought until we spott...Read More

Restaurant | "Bag of Beans: More Than Just Coffee"

Quote:
Bag of Beans, an apt name for a coffee shop although it's amazingly more than just about coffee, is without questions one of the most popular in Tagaytay in the dining category. What looked like a small take out counter along Aguinaldo Highway is a huge dining getaway. It reminds me so much of Sonia's Garden with it's comfy, country setting and al fresco dining setup.We came a little before six in the evening, perfect time for dinner but not too ideal to feast our eyes and appreciate the restaurant setup. For cam whores, the best time to come is at day time when there is sufficient natural lights.Coming in late didn't give us a chance to try their buffet brunch too, which star...Read More
