Antonio’s, Tagaytay

Tagaytay has been one of my favourite places to go to, to get some R&R from the toxic Manila hustle and bustle. Antonio’s….. one of all-time favourite restaurants in the Philippines. Tonyboy Escalante continues to wow all his guests with amazing food and excellent service!

The past couple of months have been quite toxic for my family and me, and a trip to tagaytay was just what we all needed.

Amazing Quesong Puti (white cheese) with basil pesto and cherry tomatoes  starter.

My sister, Sam and her boyfriend, Oscar came to visit the Philippines and just got engaged! It was such an amazing surprise for my family. While waiting for our food to arrive, we were all discussing wedding plans, dresses, motifs etc…. and  my dear friend Mannix, asked the waiter for a piece of paper and a pen and started sketching and designing her dress. Talk about talent! Thanks MX!
