South Luzon Kay Ganda

Last weekend, we went down south for a short holiday at Tagaytay (which is part of Cavite). Title is obviously inspired by the Department of Tourism brouhaha going on with the campaign Pilipinas Kay Ganda.

Anyway, I’ll just do my part and show the world how lovely the Philippines is through my pictures.

Breakfast at Kanin Club

The tabletops at Kanin Club have capiz windows. Creative!

On our way to Tagaytay, we had a stopover at Paseo de Santa Rosa. Chose Kanin Club for breakfast. Obvious with the name, it serves Filipino dishes. I thought it was an excellent choice; I was able to try the resto once and never forgot about the Sinangag na Sinigang. I was raving about their food but this fact was overshadowed by the fact that our food took way too long to be served. It almost took us an hour before the first plate arrived at our table. Other than that, the food tastes great (although I like the Beef Tapa more). Filipino culture is a big part of Kanin Club—a definite plus point for them.

This fish doesn’t even have to think of how to lose belly fat fast… it’s my favorite part! =))

We also went to Caleruega which was located in nearby Nasugbu, Batangas. It houses a nice chapel and garden. From Tagaytay, travel time is around 30 to 40 minutes.

Stepping inside, I was reminded of our retreat way back college.

Perfectly blue skies and green trees at Caleruega!

It still looks the same, except that some areas have Christmas decorations already.

Also got to try Sizzlin’ Pepper Lunch at Summit Ridge during our stay. Most people know I love Pepper Lunch and their pepper rice, but SPL’s version is actually good enough. For me, it’s not as pepper-y as PL’s but if you like sizzling plates, this will do.

They also do not have special butter (like Pepper Lunch) but you can choose from various sauces.

And this kept me busy on our way home. Breathtaking afternoon sky while we were cruising along SLEX. :)
