I guess up until our rainbow baby is at least two years old and tiny no more, I’m gonna call her “baby NJ” on this blog. I still can’t believe how we got so lucky for having a baby at this point in my and the hubby’s married life and at this juncture in world history where COVID-19 has changed the way people do things and look at life in general. But before I become more emo, let me talk about the long weekend that passed.
Our long weekend was extra special because the hubby and I got to take baby NJ to Tagaytay, her first out-of-town trip that involved no doctors and vaccines, haha. She wasn’t able to have a picture with the famous Taal Lake though, because the two establishments we visited — Cliffhouse and Bag of Beans — didn’t allow entry to people 15 years old and below in compliance with IATF health protocols. Actually, we never planned to dine inside those restos, we just wanted her to have a decent photo with the famous lake, but to no avail.

Last weekend was all about enjoying good food and good company. First, there was Breakfast at Antonio’s in Tagaytay where the hubby and I, along with my youngest sister Jodie, had a hearty brunch on Sunday morning. Then, there was the newly-opened Gringo Chicken and Ribs at SM Manila where we had a nice dinner with my in-laws on the same day upon our return to Manila. I, therefore, conclude that this weekend made me bigger than ever, hahaha. Diet, we shall meet again tomorrow! 😛

So far, I only know of three restaurants that offer buffet in Tagaytay. They are Bag of Beans, Sonya’s Garden and Celina’s Cafe and Restaurant. Among them, I’ve only tried the last one. Theirs is a lunch buffet price at P325 per head plus 3% city government tax. From what I gathered online, Bag of Beans offer brunch buffet during weekends at P495 nett per pax while Sonya’s Garden serves set menu (eat-all-you-can) for lunch and dinner at P683 per person.
The lunch buffet at Celina’s Cafe and Restaurant, based from my dining experience last Saturday, was quite good and affordable, too. The hubby and I, along with my parents, enjoyed simple, home-cooked meals in a cozy setting with a nice view of the famous Taal Lake. The building where the buffet was served and the restroom that caters to the guests need some serious maintenance, though.
