Masters of classic Filipino food, they serve meals that remain true to the aromas, flavors, and textures of Filipino cuisine.

    • Tantalize your taste buds with crispy Pata: deep-fried pig trotters with delicious crunchy skin. You may choose to have this as the main dish with rice as an accompaniment. Alternatively, treat it as a beer snack and dip it in the soy vinegar sauce.
    • Indulge in Tagaytay’s Bulalo:  a delicious soup to warm the belly. It comes with bone marrow that you can scoop out. This rich and satisfying dish is made with bone-in beef shanks and vegetables such as corn and cabbage. It is the perfect comfort food on a cold day.
    • Chicken Insasal: sample the mouth-watering barbecued chicken with a tasty twist. Inasal in Tagalog means ”roasted meat”. The dish is originally from the Visayas islands in the southern Philippines. It comprises chicken that is marinated in a mixture that includes among other ingredients, coconut vinegar, spices, and herbs. Thereafter, it is grilled to perfection.


    This consists of a well-selected variety of authentic Filipino favorites, made from carefully sourced ingredients. The colorful appetizers are served in platters, great for sharing. They are priced between $14-$21. Filipino specialties such as the Liempo Inasal are served for the main course with prices ranging from $21-$58. The restaurant boasts a fine selection of decadent desserts. The Iskrambol, created from shaved ice, and bananas, and decorated with colorful sprinkles is a great favorite.
