EVERYDAY: CHRISTMAS WITH LOVE


HA! Finally got to spend time with the Love of My Life! It has been a stressful week. I’ve been so excited to see him and too tired to even stay awake at the same time. I am sorry babe.

My Handsome Date ordered the Aromatic Pork which is very succulent and deserves to be the star of their menu.

I ordered the Chicken Kebab. – A first for me, to actually pick a Chicken Dish. It was not bad, paired with its dip – I can actually finish the plate. But I was too full already.

For dessert, the lovely date ordered the Banana Split.

EAT TAGAYTAY: MARCIA ADAMS


Looking for a place to eat in Tagaytay? A fancy Dinner for the better half I suppose? A catch up lunch with your best buds or A Family get together? Whatever it is, Marcia Adams is the place to be. Every corner is picturesque. Every wall can be a backdrop – pretend you’re in Greece.

The place is full of greens.

So here’s the tricky part. How to order? Every person will have to pay a Minimum Rate of Php 700 depending on the Main Course that you choose. Whatever the price of your Main Course, that is all you have to pay. Once you decided on your Mains, it comes with 1 Appetizer and 1 Dessert. They do have aa lot of choices though.

For our Appetizer, complimentary bread and dip

Everyone except one ordered the Amalfi Prawns – Crispy and succulent sea prawns marinated in salt, pepper, olive oil and coated with bread crumbs and pan fried.

I am 100% certain that everyone will relish the taste of this appetizer. It is everything you can ever hope for. As if dreams are encapsulated inside the crumbs. It’s so good I almost inhaled it in seconds.

Someone also ordered Soup of the Day

P.S. Choose your mains as fast as you could because the service is pretty bad. The Appetizer took about 45 minutes before they served it. After finishing the starters, we still had to wait about an hour for our mains and another 20 minutes for our dessert. Whew!

I told you the serving was pretty slow. Taking pictures in between meals was such a breeze.

Serving was pretty slow. But the food, thumbs up! I’ll come back!
