A Visit to Rekados Cafe & Restaurant

Its summer time once again! School has ended and there are plenty of non-working holidays and long weekends. So what else to do but relax and enjoy those days.

Just south of Metro Manila, is one of our favorite destination, that is Tagaytay. You need not travel far to enjoy a cool climate and take a breathe out of your hectic schedules. But before going up, you may want to visit this well recommended dining place. Rekados Café & Restaurant. Well, actually I’ve been here several times because we’ve always been to Tagaytay and yes! this is a favorite eating place for me and my friends.

It is just along the Tagaytay-Silang Road and surely you will not miss this merely it has an attractive façade. It also has an inner and outside dining area. Also on-going is the construction of additional area that is just perfect for a garden wedding or any outside dining occasion.

Rekados serves mostly Filipinos-Spanish & Italian inspired food. What makes me come back here and my real favorite is their Paella Valenciana. I like seafood a lot, that’s why and I loved its abundance of big shrimps, clams and green oysters (tahong) and the chorizos.

You may also want to try their kare-kare. Unlike the usual preparation of this dish, theirs has the pork cooked separately like a “lechon kawali”, the veggies are so crunchy and the tasty peanut sauce that makes a perfect kare-kare.

They also served combo meals. It’s a combination of viands and rice with veggies, a complete meal actually. There’s a grilled salmon, callos and other combo meals you can choose according to your preference.

After the sumptuous meal, we always order coffee along with churroz in chocolate dip, perfect combination right?

Also don’t forget to try and take home some egg or strawberry tarts which you can avail at Balai Pasalubong. They got plenty of native sweets and delicacies you may want to bring along going to your destination or as take home presents for your loved ones.

So the next time you’re here down south and on your way to Tagaytay, don’t forget to drop-by and bring your families and friends at Rekados Café and Restaurant. It is open daily from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm and located along Tagaytay-Silang Road in Silang, Cavite.
