Cheese Cakes and Coffee: Bag of Beans

I have been to Tagaytay a lot of times already and I always pass by Bag of Beans, we stop by to buy bread and pies a couple of times but never really got the time to sit and relax and enjoy what the place has to offer. I finally got the chance to try what Bag of Beans has to offer, other than their bread and pies.

The quaint looking facade invites people to come in and have experience what the Bag has to offer. When you enter thru the front door, get ready to feast your eyes and nose thru the wide array of breads and pies.

Republic Of Cavite - A Taste of History

Filipino Food is on my top list of cuisine that never fails to comfort me. If you were to ask me, I would rather go home and eat my fave dinuguan or hot soup of sinigang than lavish myself in a posh restaurant or buffet. I recently got invited to taste the Caviteño's cuisine and the dishes that they are most proud of.

We visited Republic of Cavite, a restaurant inspired by the history of Cavite. The owner, Mrs. Cecilia Del Rosario Pacumio or best know as Mama Cely offers authentic Caviteño's cuisine inherited from the family like Adobong Caviteño, Onde Onde, Paborito ni Emilio, Lihim ni Lola, Republic Buchi and Lihim ni Aguinaldo. The half day did not only fill our minds with new things about Cavite, but also our tummies for the rich taste of Cavite.
