Taking a Break: Robinsons Tagaytay Promenade Food Tour (Part 2 of 3)
A collection of Filipino Cuisine, from Ilocos to Bacolod, Cavite to Pampanga, practically all foods gastronomic is represented here.
Tagaytay City has been a favorite getaway of most urban dwellers in the busy Manila. It has also been a favorite destination of foreigners because of its proximity not to mention its cold weather, fresh fruits and scenic volcano perched on Lake Taal.
What more, its food choices would make every tummy ask for more, we tried some of these and found ourselves full.
C2 Jeepney. No, not you favorite bottled iced tea. C2 stands for Classic Cuisine, offers every guest some gastronomic delights uniquely Filipino. I tasted the Bagnet, deep fried pork belly, a pride of the Ilocanos.
Bacolod Chicken Inasal. You don’t have to go to Negros or Iloilo to try out the Chicken Inasal (Grilled Chicken), NAMI (delicious)! Best eaten with bare hands, kamayan-style.
Gilligan’s. The other night was the sinful Sisig, this time their Crispy Pata (good thing I was able to have some 10K run earlier).
Cows on Fire. The restaurant name says it all, its beef and its grilled. Don’t you think their potato skin with cheese and bacon is ultra-inviting. I think this is what Tagaytay’s offering to this collection of Filipino food.
Sanctuario. Pasta lovers would say 10/10 on their Bulalo Pasta. Very succulent, didn’t thought of eating pasta like this. It’s a heavenly feeling to sip the bone marrow as I chew the pasta. I definitely recommend you taste this delectable meal!
End your insatiable appetite with
Razon’s. Who haven’t tasted their fabled halo-halo (a mix of sweet corn, nata de coco, shaved ice, milk and leche flan)? He must be living in Mars not to experience this must-die-for Filipino merienda.
Coffee Beanery. Jonel order the halo-halo shake.

TAKING A BREAK is a different kind of trip, a timely break from my hammock-hanging-escapades. This is a 3-part series wherein I feature some restaurants and a hotel for everyone’s enjoyment. Don’t you think I need some comfort and convenience too?
Special thanks to Robinsons Malls and Summit Ridge for sponsoring the 2-day trip. I (and my tummy) definitely had a great time, no (burps twice), AWESOME time!
