Moon Garden is my favorite breakfast place in all of Tagaytay. Not one among friends I have brought with me there left unimpressed. Unfortunately, they have recently imposed a “by-reservations only” rule, with a minimum of 12 persons in the party, at P400 per head for breakfast, and P600-700 per head for lunch or dinner. I guess I now just need to round up friends to continue my Moon Garden experience.
Venue for Weddings
They have since changed their business model from a walk-in restaurant into a venue for events, most especially weddings. The tables are not your usual tables from furniture shops – - they are long panels of old wooden floor or old doors made into dining tables. And they are done up like Martha Stewart is the resident housekeeping head.
Bed & Breakfast
Or I could book a B&B, even if my Tagaytay house is just 8 minutes away. Or maybe book friends there. A friend I suggested the place to said they enjoyed their wedding anniversary stay in one of the rooms, and felt like they were on a second honeymoon. And why not? You will feel like you two are alone in the place. It is so private there are only 8 rooms within the vast expanse of the garden. . And the concrete that serves as bed-frame surely won’t creak.
How’s the Food?
The house specialty is cochinillo which my friends describe as”lechon baboy na nag gym”. Would you believe there is a virtually fat-free lechon?
And then there are my usual favorites. I always ask for their home-made yoghurt and their guyabano shake. Here is the menu:
