Tagaytay Bag of Beans

Posted on 22 October 2013 by Flisha

Since Gim and I bought a car over a month ago, weekends are so much more fun fun fun. :)

Two weeks ago, we went to Tagaytay. It’s south of Manila but high up in the mountains so it’s chilly and has a great view of Taal Lake (with the volcano within a lake within a volcano within a lake).

Thanks to SLEX (South Luzon Expressway), we got there in about 2 hours. Actually it would have been faster if we had known the way. :) But since it was our first time to travel to Tagaytay on a private transportation, we stopped several times for directions.

We decided to have a late lunch at Bag of Beans, which was recommended by Gim. On hindsight, I will not eat a meal there again.

I ate Shepherd’s pie, which I thought would be big enough as a meal. But it would better as a merienda for the size. Also it was kind of cold. :(

Gim ordered kidney pie, I think? Not sure about the name now, but he liked it.

We brought my sister along. She ordered lechon kawali rice topping, which was OK but overpriced.

However dessert was great. We ordered a blueberry cheesecake for share, and it was really cold, creamy and very very good. :) Also, their signature coffee to go with it. For me coffee is coffee. But Gim the coffee lover said it was quite tasty, well he’s the better judge of coffee. :)

The view from Bag of Beans is not as good as other famous restaurants, since you can’t really see Taal Volcano, just Taal Lake. But it was very serene and relaxing.

We dined al fresco since the weather was nice. :)

I ate in Matgalne and This is All I Got to Show For It

Posted on 04 October 2013 by Flisha

I heard about Matgalne, the Korean all-you-can-eat buffet for Php299, and since I LOVE Korean food, I had to try it. :)

So, yeah. These two pictures are all I got to show for it. I am not even in them, haha! (I had too much fun cooking and eating that taking photos became not-a-priority.)

What can I say? It was affordable. There were many side dishes to choose from. My favorite was the japchae wrapped and fried in nori. It was like lumpia shanghai but healthier. :) I also liked the egg rolls.

The Php299 got us unlimited servings of thinly sliced pork belly. What happens is the waiter gives you an initial plateful of around 6 pieces, you cook it yourself, then you call him every time you want another serving. (I think I prefer being able to serve myself immediately and more substantially ala Yakimix! But I get that this is more economical for the restaurant.) If you want unlimited beef too, you add Php100.

Oh, and you need to make a reservation before you go there. Tables are limited as you can see in the second photo (we were at one end of the room with just one table beside us, what you see is basically all the space they have). We went on a Saturday around 11am and they were about to turn us away since all tables were fully booked. Good thing one customer backed out so we got his table instead. Yay!

They have a promo of shaving 10% off your bill if you take a photo of yourself there and upload it to social media. Plus you get entered into a weekly raffle where the winner gets a free lunch or dinner with 2 friends. It’s a super good deal. I’m not subscribed to a data plan though so we didn’t join. My friend Jeff did, though, and he actually won. I saw a video of the staff singing their congratulations to him on the Matgalne FB page, heheheh!

In conclusion, this is a very affordable buffet and since there aren’t that many choices, you probably won’t overeat. I will go back if I am hankering for a cheap Korean meal. :)
