Where to Eat and Drink in Tagaytay: The Lake District

Tagaytay City remains to be one of the most popular stopover destinations for tourists traveling the beaches of Batangas, and other nearby provinces. It also remains to be a favorite spot for weekend staycations, day-trip lunch sessions, or those late-night whiskey fixes.

We recently visited Tagaytay City and happened to find a restaurant that caters to all of these cravings. We came to know The Lake District, a hip restaurant-bar that serves modern Filipino comfort food.

The ambiance of The Lake District is very warm and homey. It's the perfect place to snuggle closely with your family and friends while enjoying good food.

Their food is definitely tasteful. The Lake District added a special touch and spin to the classic Filipino food we love, making it all the more interesting. Honestly, I still keep thinking about some of the dishes I've tried, such as the Classic Tagaytay Bulalo, Lake District Sisig, and the Cream Coffee with Pineapple Marmalade.

Classic Tagaytay Bulalo (P490)

Lake District Sisig (P280)

Cream Coffee with Pineapple Marmalade (P200)
Bittersweet. The best dessert I've had so far.

The Lake District wants their food to not only taste good, but to also ignite warm and joyful feelings while shared with the people you're with. Here are some of the other best sellers of The Lake District:
