We spent a couple of weekends ago at Tagaytay just because we wanted to get out of the Metro and relax. Well, truth be told, it wasn't that relaxing as our lunch was served so late we stuffed ourselves with food at 3-4pm and even stayed for a late afternoon coffee + snacks. Just when we planned to go back to home-sweet-home, it was extremely traffic so we did what most families would do.... stay somewhere else (like restaurant) and wait for traffic to ease up.
To make the long story short, it did not ease up and got worst, but at least, we had late dinner at Cafe Voi La which is actually a lovely surprise.
The restaurant is located at Alpine Village Crosswinds and you may need to call for reservations especially on weekends because the place is packed! I didn't get to take photos of the restaurant outside as it was extremely dark when we got there! All I have is a lovely family photo for you to see the interior of the restaurant.
Well there could probably be changes on the restaurant interior as it isn't Christmas or New Years season anymore. But rest assured you get the feel of home with extra "oomph". Unique furniture in bright and vibrant colors, the restaurant itself seems like a nice "spot" just to relax and take photos! Everything will be Instagram-worthy I tell you!
Now let's talk about the food. Since we were all stuffed, we've decided to lie low with our orders! But looking at the menu, this restaurant serves Asian dishes mostly fusion.
Special Senator's Salad
Assorted green lettuce, paper thin slice of smoked salmon, grilled prawns,
shiitake mushrooms garnished with parmesan shavings.
I am quite impressed with this simple salad, indeed, I understand the reason why this was highly recommended by the server.
Cafe Voi La Special
Salami, Pepperoni, Onion, Mushrrooms, Capsicum and CheeseIt comes with some olives too! Not a bad size considering how we expected this to be small. This is really filling and I love the fresh ingredients used!
Homemade Chicken Pork Adobo
Slow-cooked and simmered chicken thighs and pork spar ribs in its natural juice,
vinegar, palm sugar, black pepper and garlic.I like how unique this Adobo taste, nothing like the usual adobo dishes you get in most Filipino Restaurants. I enjoy the Chicken more than the pork! The meat is extremely tender even my son enjoyed this a lot!
Salted Caramel Cheesecake
Php195.00This slice of cake is not for the faint-hearted! You must be REALLY a fan of Cheesecake and salted caramel to be able to enjoy this! I for once is a cheesecake lover (not salted caramel) BUT, I actually enjoyed every single "rich" bite of this. No wonder this was ordered by most nearly customers and definitely worth sharing because this dessert is extremely filling.
I will definitely go back with my family for both the food and ambiance!
