The cold never bothered us, anyway.

When the smoldering degrees of Manila gets too much this summer, beat the heat and hit the road to Tagaytay. With a lot of one-of-a-kind restaurants to its name, plenty of dishes earn the destination’s claim to fame. When you’ve got your bulalo fix and that mandatory cup of joe in the cold weather, it’s time to hit the last course of the meal: dessert.
