discoveries after the wedding bells

Lost and Found

What do you do in Tagaytay? Be lazy and satisfy your palates with good food of course!
Hubby and i have not been back to Tagaytay for leisure in ages but thanks to Ninong R and his pretty wife C, we started 2011 finding something we’ve been looking for in the cool windy city.

When our favorite bulalo (bone marrow soup) restaurant closed down 3 years ago, hubby and i have been on a hunt for a replacement so when we heard that Pamana served a good bowl of bulalo, we just had to give it a try.

When we finally turned to park in front of the restaurant, i instantly knew it would be an interesting dinner

It looked like Pamana used to be an old residence decorated with antique furniture and photos of Philippine cinema from long ago

as i love old Philippine films from the 50’s and 60’s, i took to a liking the ambiance of Pamana

The menu showcases dishes from family recipes handed down from one generation to another

you can sip on their delicious wheatgrass lemonade while you make up your mind on what to order … and believe me there are a lot of good dishes to choose from!

On our table:

Enseladang Bagnet

Crispy pork with greens and tomatoes deliciously garnished with bagoong balayan dressing

Tadyang ng Bakang Maanghang

Tender beef cooked in flavorful sauce with just the right amount of spiciness to keep you wanting more

Pampanga’s Sizzling Sisig at Aligue

This one’s a winner! Although this was not served sizzling hot (food got cold easily with the cool Tagaytay breeze), it was still delicious. Something i know hubby would definitely order when we visit again!

Nilagang Bulalao

A huge bowl of delicious broth and tender beef with a generous portion of bone marrow! Yummy!!! The only problem hubby and i had with it is that we didn’t think we could order this on our dates because it easily serves 6 people!

all delicious with Pamana’s garlic rice

For dessert, C and i had wanted toasted mamon with thick hot chocolate but it was not available so we all just shared Puto Bumbong which was pretty good

We all happily left the restaurant with satisfied palates and i knew we would be back soon

…and we were back sooner than i thought!
we were back the next day! hehehe!

  1. Wow! I haven’t seen this one in Tagaytay. Definitely dragging someone special to try this place … I love old films as well and I would definitely get a photo taken in front of all those photos.

  2. We have not yet ventured out of Makati/Manila proper since we moved here in November, but Tagaytay was always a must-visit during our past vacations. Now I can’t wait to return and try Pamana. Thanks for this great overview!
