NANAY CIRILAS’ Kapeng Barako: The Best Local Restaurant in Tagaytay? (A Review)

Nanay Cirilas-19.jpg

We are always on the look out for first places to bring our balikbayan friends to eat in Tagaytay.

Sometimes, we would search TripAdvisor to cross-check recommendations. We were surprised to find that Nanay Cirilas’ Kapeng Barako is a highly rated private dining, local cuisine restaurant destination.

We were skeptical about the reviews but decided to book, pre-order and risk to dine first time with our guest.

Here’s what we think of Nanay Cirilas’ Kapeng Barako restaurant…

Siargao Bleu

Untitled
Siargao Bleu, by far, is one of the better resorts we had the pleasure of staying in.  The unique design and architecture perfectly encapsulate, the laid-back provincial feel of the entire island.  And while it’s the only Triple-A resort in Siargao, the establishment doesn’t come off as too bourgie or high-class.

Perfect for a romantic getaway or with a small group of family or friends, Siargao Bleu is for people who love the island life and, at the same time, know how to relax in style.

 

Untitled
Located at the heart of Siargao and minutes away from Cloud 9 Surfing, the resort draws guests from all around the world.

Surfing season is the busiest time in  Siargao and the resort is typically booked.  The popularity of Siargao Bleu makes it one of the most frequented resorts on the island so booking ahead of time is recommended.

HUNI SICOGON: What to Expect @hunisicogon ? (First Look)

Huni Sicogon is Ayala Land’s latest venture in Western Visayas. Just opened this July 2018, it is a 52-key, 2-storey boutique resort located at Sicogon Tourism Estate.

Sicogon Island is located on the northernmost part of Iloilo, under the municipality of Carles. This island has remained under the radar for the past few years, especially after Yolanda hit and brought casualty to the locals and their livelihood. Ayala is set to turn the island into a tourism estate, much like Lio El Nido.

I had the privilege to be one of the first few to visit the resort in its first week. Here’s what you can expect at Huni:
