Romantic Buon Giorno


This restaurant is one of the best-kept secrets in Tagaytay. Ambiance (especially during night-time) are perfect for lovers who wants to dine al fresco. Include some candles and the right music and be ready to propose or be proposed to. Great for intimate family dinners also.




Sage Tea. This is one of my weirdest food order. I thought sage tea means, sage in tea-bags, not fresh sage leaves in a teapot. Hahaha. There's the distinctive taste of sage and I can't say that its love at first sip. But after several sips, it tasted better- not that herb(al)!




Salmon Risotto. Love! The risotto was very flavorful. No explanation needed. Good for 2 pax.




Jack Dory. Pan-fried dory with sauce and stir-fried veggies. Big portion of dory. Good for 2 pax. This dish is okay but a bit salty.

Food budget per pax is around 600-800. Restaurant located at the Fire Lake Area, just after Army/Navy and Yellow Cab in Tagaytay. We're definitely coming back!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
