We particularly like the Cledor brand too!  Usually we get some Korean ice cream or frozen delights as dessert after eating at places like Soga Miga in Silang, Cavite.

Maliputo Served Sinigang-Style

Just like the tawilis, maliputo is a fish that is harvested from Taal Lake.  The maliputo is seasonal, however, so if you see it on a menu at a restaurant in Tagaytay, you may want to check for availability first.

On rainy nights (or cold summer nights), you might want to try it sinigang-style: a sour broth with lots of fresh veggies. You can have some over at Mer-Ben in Tagaytay City.

Bilao Dinner at Gabriela at Nurture Wellness Village

We had some friends come over from Manila last weekend to come check out our various Tagaytay projects and some good ol’ catching up.

By the time we’ve wrapped things up, we worked up quite an appetite. They asked us to take them somewhere new (i.e. a restaurant they haven’t been to previously), but relaxing, and just out-of-the-way enough so we can continue our kwentuhan.

Fortunately for them, we knew just the place.

Tagaytay Living Featured Image - Gabriela at Nurture Wellness Village

Gabriela by Nurture Wellness Village is located in Tagaytay City. Coming from Manila, along the Aguinaldo Highway just across the row of restaurants overlooking Taal Lake, turn right at Magallanes Drive (the corner with Magallanes Hotel), and follow the signs to Nurture Wellness Village from there.

Gabriela at Nurture Wellness Village

While Metro Tagaytay’s very own Nurture Wellness Village had the in-house restaurant concept going on for quite a while now, it wasn’t until recently that they decided to step things up in terms of branding and promotion. They’ve now branded the in-house dining concept as Gabriela at Nurture Wellness Village.

Tagaytay Living Featured Image - Specialty Drinks at Gabriela

One of the best things about Gabriela: their signature drinks, with ingredients grown straight out of their very own farm out back.

Expect healthier versions of traditional Filipino favorites, and signature drinks made from all sorts of fresh fruits and other ingredients they’ve grown in their own backyard and gardens (or sourced locally from neighborhood farms).

Tagaytay Living Featured Image - Gabriella's Kale Specialty Drinks

Kale drinks for everybody!

The house signature product is kale, and you’ve got at least three different kinds of kale-blended drinks. The staff explained to us that kale is actually very rich in protein, Vitamin K, A and C– sounds healthy, indeed!

Now there’s a ton of good stuff at Gabriela- from salads to sandwiches, kanin and ulam, cocktails and healing juices, but for the night, we decided to go for one of their Bilao Group Meals.

At Nurture Wellness Village with Friends 02

The ‘Alfonso’ Bilao Group Meal. Good for 4 or 5 peeps, depending on how ravenous/hungry your group is.  Only Php1500.

The whole deal comes with three kinds of ulam: laing (gabi leaves stewed in coconut milk and spices), daing na bangus (fried seasoned milkfish), chicken pork adobo, together with a salad of itlog na maalat (salted eggs) with onions and tomatoes, atsara (pickled vegetables), slices of fruits in season (pineapple and watermelon), and a generous serving of pandan rice right there in the middle of it all.

Late Lunch at Taza Fresh Table

The wife and I decided to stop by TAZA Fresh Table one afternoon for late lunch. While we have heard about it, it occurred to us that we haven’t had the opportunity to come check it out first-hand ourselves.  This particular afternoon being a good time as any to do so, we marched right up to the restaurant from the lobby of Taal Vista Hotel.

Read: All-Day Breakfast at TAZA Fresh Table.

Taza Fresh Table - Interior

We arrived a little past two, and on a weekday, so the restaurant understandably had a thin crowd, post-lunchtime– which was a good thing, as we prefer the relative peace and quiet.

It was unusually warm that afternoon, and we were just thankful to be someplace air-conditioned and seated comfortably. We asked for iced teas while figuring out what to have. Thankfully, it was a special house blend, and it seemed we were off to a good start.
