We had no definite plans as to how we were to celebrate our Valentine’s Day. The night before that, we were contemplating whether to go to Angeles City for the Hot Air Baloon Festival because we knew Kyle would surely love to see the balloons, or to just stay home since we knew traffic would be heavy and the restaurants, crowded. But since we woke up late and the Hot Air Balloon show was scheduled to start early, I told the boys that we just stay at home.
But my husband insisted that we go out. “If you don’t like the dinner date idea” he said, “Let’s just have a breakfast date.” So he told us to get dressed and we will drive swiftly to Tagaytay for breakfast, take Kyle to the Picnic Grove for a horse ride, and then go home.
I had no other restaurant in mind but Breakfast at Antonio’s. Kyle loves their pork meatloaf. I wanted cookies. “It’s Valentine’s Day after all, I could treat myself to a piece of sweet,” I told Alex. (I am having gestational diabetes in this pregnancy that’s why I am following a very strict diet.)
So off we went to Breakfast at Antonio’s. And as expected, traffic was heavy going to Tagaytay City. The queue at the resto was also quite long when we arrived but we waited nonetheless.
We took some photos before ordering…
When we ordered, I went for the American classic, their Eggs Benedict, since I haven’t tried it yet. The plate is made with toasted English muffins, lightly sautéed ham, and cooked, runny poached eggs in Hollandaise sauce. It was Okay, but I will not order it again next time.
Well, Kyle of course ordered the House Meat Loaf.
For the meat-lover dad, he had the Smoked Pork Baby Back Ribs. This was served with Baked Beans and a choice of Mexican Rice or French Fries. He chose the Mexican Rice.
I took some pictures of my dates for Valentine’s. Next year, I’ll have one more boy as a date, that will make them three na! *Blush*
After dining, I went to their small Bakeshop and bought some cookies and ensaymada and then we went home. The original plan was to go to Picnic Grove for Kyle’s horse ride after eating, but since Tagaytay was too crowded at that time, we just told him that we will go back soon.
The following day, we had a Part 2 celebration of Valentine as a family. We woke up early and had breakfast date at Tapsi ni Vivian, a nearby restaurant from home, and then went straight to the mall. We also watched, “Into the Woods.”
