Tagaytay Classics: Heartwarming Bulalo at Leslie’s

Last weekend, I found myself making a third roadtrip to Tagaytay for the month of August. The Baguio of the South lived up to its name, providing pleasant weather throughout the day. Because we were with a first-timer this time around, it only made sense to show him famous landmarks of Tagaytay. 

It was nearly lunchtime when we arrived and for our first stop, we decided to head for the most famous bulalohan in town- Leslie’s Restaurant located along Tagaytay’s main highway. Overlooking the lake, it provided quite a spectacular view of the volcano.

The nomz-

Leslie’s Restaurant is most famous for their bulalo. Leslie’s bulalo is a heartwarming bowl of choice beef shank and bone marrow simmered in hot clear soup with a handful of corn cobs and some greens. Nothing beats hot soup on a cool Tagaytay day.

Doesn’t that bone marrow make your mouth water?
For a complete Tagaytay experience, we ordered the classics in addition to the bulaloinihaw na pla-pla, inihaw na pusit, buttered prawns, liempo, laing and a round of fresh buco juice. (Tagaytay bucos are the sweetest!)

These yummy Filipino dishes from Leslie’s Restaurant made up our classic Tagaytay lunch. For us who’ve been in the same setting many times, it isn’t something to marvel at anymore. For first timers, it’s a lovely experience to have a hearty lunch in a cool hut with a view of a volcano in the middle of a lake while being serenaded by a band of local singers. Our guest was naturally wowed.
