The taste of the food was just average.
01 Upon entering, we were not welcome by the staff.
02 The fried milkfish was good but the pinakbet was not.
The halo-halo was not something you want to go back.
03 Prices of the food on the menu were a bit expensive.
04 The dining area was clean and tidy.

Note: We will not come back to this place.

Visiting tagaytay on a weekday will give you perk of roaming around the (not so) new serin mall with ease and breeze. Not much people in here. You would easily determine which restaurant offers good food by looking at those restaurants that is filled up. (Actually, you'll see which restaurants are in with the masa)

This is also new to the mall. There's a 'congratulatory' bouquet still fresh. There's a large menu board outside as well wherein you could easily see which is their bestsellers.

The interior is made of wood and plastic. There's a collection of toys (just a little weird) displayed on the left side of the wall where couches are also available. That side actually felt like a cafe.

I like the this appetizer--especially its unique presentation. Tomatoes, onions, and shrimp paste mixed all together with grilled eggplant. Topped with slices of salted egg! Everything inside the banana leaf boat. How presentable! It did its job as well as the overall saltiness really will make you an aggressive rice consumer.

Huhu. This one must have been great tasting. I never get to try this. It was smelling good and still hot when it was served.

If you are craving for an omelette, try it here with a filipino twist--grilled eggplant with ground pork. Good tasting as well even if no condiments added.

I used to have this back when i was still living with my parents. A comfort food this is for me, however i find this far from what i used to eat at hime cause it tastes too much coconut milk. It's good it just does not taste like home. :)

Their best seller. It's like a super thin sinigang hot and sour! Careful though, sip slowly lest you cough because of its spiciness.

128204128525 kuya j's crispy pata (family size) @695PhP
I love this. So crispy, though i think tony's is better, pero one of the best narin. The usual soy and onion condiment to go with this never fails to make you eat more!

One recommended pork dish! Deep fried! The skin is exceedingly crunchy! The pork fat and meat's tenderness compliments each other especially when dipped with the bagoong (shrimp paste) with mayonaise. There's the spicy tuba dip as well but i did not appreciate it that much.

Last one to be called out is this dish. Glass noodles (vermicelli) with pork, seafood, and vegetables tastes very well.

Overall i like the place and the food. I honestly thought i would not like it here cause it looks like mang inasal and its likes. I was not able to take a good photo of the rest of the food items reviewed here cause it was consumed narin.
