I always love to go to Bawai for the best vietnamese meal I ever tasted in Manila. Also, I love to hear the love story of Bawai on how they courted each other via sign language and how they ended up in Manila. I would like to share the experience to more people via the Ultimate Tagaytay Tour.
The secret to Bawai’s success is that she personally prepares the food with love. They don’t want to expand the operation because they don’t want to commercialize the taste of Bawai.
Everyone was raving about this vietnamese salad which hits the right vietnamese notes and tunes.
The salad was followed by the vietnamese lumpia, chagio and barbecue with the sweet patis sauce and peanut sauce.
My brother Rommel is the one taking the pictures during the Tagaytay tour and he would often take care of Aidan as well.
Aidan loves to go with me during the tours. He often promised to behave and entertain our foodie friends. The entire family is joining the Ultimate Pampanga Food Tour tomorrow.
The main meal is the vietnamese beef soup or the pho. I prefer the pho and I took a mental note to serve rice in the next Tagaytay tour.
Aside from the salad, most people rave about these chicken dogs as the finale for our Bawai lunch.
Bawai was kind enough to serve us a complimentary serving of banana pie dessert with cream sauce.
