Whenever we go to Tagaytay, I always crave for Bulalo (Filipino Beef Marrow Stew). I don't know if it's me or the cold weather, I just wanna sip coffee or hot soup and sit on a rocking chair all day like my great-grandpa, Lolo Andres. Anyways, we went there to celebrate Mother's Day, we stood in line for like an hour or so just to get a table. We drove for like 1 hour and 30 minutes just to eat there, so yeah we're super hungry coz we waited for awhile! Waiting makes you think a lot and makes you crazy, so to relieve boredom we took A LOT of pictures. When I say A LOT, I meant gazilions! Bwahaha!

After 1 hour and 17 minutes, the food arrived! Yay!!! Chow time! You can ask the waiter for more soup if you like, it's unlimited if you order Bulalo Special.
Bulalo Special -tastiest bulalo ever! I like the beef coz it's soft and not gummy-like. You can chew it finely and it melts. LOL! I'm exaggerating. But really, I like it coz it's super tasty and the vegetables are fresh. Sweet corn, crunchy string beans and not over-cooked chinese cabbage, perfection! If you want more flavor, you can slice few red chili peppers in a saucer and add few drops of fish sauce.
Lechon Kawali and Deep Fried Chicken- I don't have much to say about this dishes coz they're fried. I guess I just need to comment on the sauce? Well okay, for the sauce you can either make it on your own or just ask for a gravy. Some people like soy sauce w/ few drops of lemon or calamansi. But me, I prefer gravy. I like their gravy coz it's not too watery, it's kinda sweet and spicy.
Grilled Spareribs- Bbq!!! Who doesn't love it? It's nice to eat it with hands coz it's boney and the meat is in between the ribs. It reminds me of Hopper, my hyper dog. I like the consistency of the flavor, peppery and sweet. We ate everything but since we used knife and fork, we weren't able to get the meat that were hiding. I let Hopper do his job. I took the bones at home. Teehee!!! I love Hopper so much!

we took advantage of taking pictures coz they have really nice garden landscape
I forgot what we were laughing about, I like this photo. Good times!
you can eat in the Nipa Hut but it has a curfew, 'til 4pm only coz of thick clouds formation
You can no longer see the lake in the background coz of the low clouds
