Since it was a holiday yesterday, we drove to Tagaytay for a short break. Yes, it wasn’t planned as usual. My husband just awoke me and my kid early in the morning and asked if we wanted to tag along with his colleagues to the place. It was them who had a scheduled trek to Taal Volcano but since my husband couldn’t hike at that time and he knew I was having deep cravings for burgers, he said we will just join them on their way, and will have a split activity later on.
We first took his colleagues at the gateway to the volacano in Talisay, Batangas. I secretly wished we could join then in seeing the active Taal volacano and Taal lake because I’ve never been to the place yet. They say it is a stunning view but my current condition (I’ll tell you why soon), does not permit me to either hike or ride the horse for hours.
Anyway, I looked it up on the Internet and saw this is the photo of the crater lake. So beautiful!
Then we went to Tagaytay City. The road from Talisay, Batangas to Tagaytay was gorgeous—it was winding with thick forests surrounding it!
In Tagaytay, our first destination was a burger house of course. I searched online for some recommended burger houses in Tagaytay and the Mushroom Burger House appeared. One of the blogs I came across with said their burger is a must-try; hence we went to the resto. I was so surprised to see that all of the items in their menu was so reasonably priced! (You can be very full with a P150 budget!) Their burger? It was good (a bit dry though) but you’ll be happy to know that it’s a healthy mushroom burger. I also enjoyed their mushroom lomi . I have no picture of the food here, I keep forgetting taking pictures of what we eat!heeheee
Our little boy requested to ride the horse so we took him to the Picnic Grove. I love Picnic Grove. It’s the perfect budget place in Tagaytay for families (entance fee is only P50). There you can have simple but relaxing family activities other than horseback riding such as flying the kite, riding the cable car and of course picnicking with the entire family as it boasts of a good view of Taal Volcano.
After a few more hours of roaming in Tagaytay, we fetched Alex’s friends back at the getaway port to Taal volcano so we could have lunch together. We really meant to eat at my family’s favorite resto in the area, the Bag of Beans, but then again it was under construction at that time! We also searched for an Indian restaurant in Tagaytay but we found none (Do you know any? Please let me know if you do!) and so off we went to Army Navy instead to enjoy what else but their burger and burrito! =)
How about you? How did you spend your holiday yesterday?
