Bummers : large crowd of hungry customers during weekends
Manila boys and girls know that Tagaytay is the best place to go to when the weather in the city is scorching hot. It is just a quick drive from the city but it offers a whole new environment – cool and filled with awesome scenery. For one, the view of Taal Volcano is a magnificent sight to see. Different stores selling colorful flowers, fresh lettuce, and miniature pineapples are lined along the highway. That is why many restaurants and hotels are getting built in Tagaytay. This is to cater to the needs of its growing customer base.
Leslie’s Restaurant is a restaurant we love to visit when in Tagaytay. We have probably dined here for more than three times but our mouth-watering desire for their Bulalo Special (Php 450) never dwindles. No wonder they were awarded to have the Best Bulalo in 2011 by Sooo Pinoy. Without a doubt, Leslie’s Bulalo Special is the best we ever had.
Large chunks of soft and tender beef loins swim in clear broth. A large beef bone offers a creamy marrow center. People would fight against each other who will get the marrow. Many friendships ended because of this dish.
You might say that it is redundant but we don’t care. If you are dining at Leslie’s, you gotta have their Crispy Pata (Php 399). This crunchy pork leg is said to be heart attack on a plate. But who cares if it’s this good, right?
