Where to eat

Dining anywhere in the Philippines is an experience travelers can never forget because it is one of the greatest pleasures of the Filipino people. The exotic dishes spread on the Filipino table are a blend of Oriental, Spanish and local culinary dishes. There are also a number of restaurants which specializes in different cuisine suitable to the distinguishing taste buds of any travelers. Western foods and restaurants are a plenty so you are never too far from your favorite home foods.

One can eat lunch for less than a dollar in a shopping Mall and have an surprisingly excellent meal! Adobo (a dish of marinated vegetables and meat or fish; served with rice) and barbeque are favorites as well as a cornucopia of fish dishes. The food is fresh and delicious and you'd be hard pressed to spend more than US$10 for an excellent dinner for two at a typical Filipino restaurant.

Josephine's Restaurant Tagaytay (photo above,) is the absolute best and one of my personal favorites. Though a bit pricey compared to other local eateries, the service, food and view is outstanding. I entertained a group of ten persons and we all had a feast with wine and beer setting me back about $60. In the west it would have cost me US$300.

On the weekends Josephine's has an incredibly cheap all you can eat buffet for around US$10, a great bargain if I say so myself. But get there early because they are always packed.
