Had breakfast here at Amacena :) Guess what? Another eggs benedict made it on my list. Hihi This resto serves good steak eggs ben! Yup! You read that right. Protein loading for breakfast!:) Their version is the steak and eggs are on top of hash brown. Ingredients are all organic128076🏻

So I went out of town for a gig and had lunch here at Amacena. I found myself thinking.....Why I haven't tried this place before?128556 Amacena by Chef Luigi Muhlach is located at One Tagaytay Place. (Perfect place for staycation. I will write another entry about this hotel.) So let's talk about their food. :)

We ordered the following: Five Cheese Pizza. Tangigue Fried Rice, Kilawin, Sizzling Bulalo Steak, and Dinikdikang Chicharon. Yes. I know. I broke the rules but it was worth it!10084️ Please see the pictures of the dishes and the place, uploaded above. :) (Just swipe the pictures to the left.)

The search for the best Five Cheese Pizza is over. If you've been a reader of my reviews, you would know that I've been looking for the best Five Cheese Pizza in the Metro. Good news? I found it. Though I need to drive out of town but from time to time, I think it's good to take a break and drive for Amacena's pizza128525 Trust me on this.

My second favorite dish is the Kilawin. The former pescetarian in me was really happy! Ugh. It was full of flavor and the combination of vinegar and coconut? Perfect! Another star for serving fresh fish! If you're an avid fan of Kilawin or Filipino dish, you would really appreciate the quality of the Filipino food they serve here.

The Dinikdikang Chicharon is their version of Sizzling Sisig with eggs on top. I decided for a while to forget about my cholesterol. Maaaan! It was really good. Armi didn't like jt that much cause she found it kind of spicy but the Bicolana in me really enjoyed it.

Soooo.... here's my favorite part. Can you guess? Yeah. You can see in my Bio that I workout for DESSERT! Tadaaaah!!! We had Langka and Leche flan turon and Belgian erruption (their version of lava cake)128525128525128525 Winner!!!! We paired our dessert with Balisur tea ( Sencha green tea and English breakfast) I could still remember Armi's face when she got to taste the lava cake. Heaven!!!! As for the turon, we ended up asking the waiter to wrap the leftover and snacked up on it at the hotel room. The turon comes with ube ice cream. Yeah we need to burn the calories when we get back to Manila.128525128525128525

To wrap it up, it was a close to perfect gastronomic experience. We enjoyed every dish and they really have good service. Shoutout to Romar our jolly waiter who kept on checking us and our food. We were also able to meet the Chef Luigi. Lucky us!

Thank you also to the GM of One Tagaytay Place, Mr. Jose Marie Ouano who made sure we would enjoy not only our dining experience but our whole stay at their hotel. Please wait for my next entry about One Tagaytay Place.

Guys, check out this hidden gem in Tagaytay, you wont regret it!128076🏻

We were excited to eat here because their table setting was unique and beautiful. Sad to say that we were really disappointed. Quantity of the food was okay. But everything was too bland. And too pricey for food you couldn't even taste. They looked infinitely yummier in the pictures. 128557 Service was not so hot either since they seem to lack servers.
