One of the most visited places in the south of Luzon is probably Tagaytay. What’s there not to visit, right? There are great hotels, a great view of the Taal Lake and Volcano and lots of places you can have food trips at.
One of the restaurants I usually go back to when I am in Tagaytay is Leslie’s Restaurant located along Aguinaldo Highway Crossing, Silang West, Tagaytay. Yes, the food can be just a little pricey but there are some Filipino goodies that are best eaten in a place with a great scenic view. At Leslie’s you can enjoy food from appetizers to desserts.
I came here with a few good friends yesterday. For our appetizers, we ordered sliced mango with bagoong (P185), calamares (P329) and pork sisig (P299). The servings were just enough to ready our tongues and stomachs for the main dishes. As usual, we always order the bulalo special which cost P599. We also had the crispy pata (P550), sizzling baked mussels (P299), beef tapa (P329), sizzling spicy chicken wings (P299), ginataang alimasag (P399) and chopsuey with seafoods (P249). We had yang chow fried rice (P99 for a solo serve and P349 for a family platter). I don’t know if we were all really hungry or there were lots of us – the platters were wiped clean! Well, maybe the food was just good.
For our dessert, we had three orders of seasonal fruit platter. This was P299. The juicy watermelons and sweet pineapple slices were a great way to end the evening food festivity. What’s more, we get a really nice view of the Tagaytay surrounding. We had some time to catch up on our lives and then we headed to the van to get back to the city because the next day was Monday.
It’s easy to get to Leslie’s Restaurant if you ask around in Tagaytay since it is well known. Go ahead and head to Tagaytay and give your stomach the Filipino food it craves for!
