Last Sunday, we had lunch at Antonio's Grill along Aguinaldo Hi-Way, Tagaytay. We took our officemate's tip and ordered the Pinakbet Rice. It was a winner! One serving worth Php550 is good for 2-3 people. Even the tables near us were raving at the sight of it -- "Parang masarap!" and "Sana nauna silang umorder para nakita natin yun!" The lechon kawali was very tender, the bagoong was not too maalat (salty), the vegetables were cooked just right.
Date idea: regular weekend lunches in Tagaytay just to try everything in Antonio's Grill's menu! The Grill is the more casual, more affordable resto of Chef Tonyboy Escalante. Five years ago, we tried his "by reservation only" Antonio's in Brgy. Neogan, Tagaytay -- pricey but worth it!
