Tootsie's Homemade Specialties: Favorite Filipino Restaurant (Tagayatay Cavite)

Tagaytay, Cavite, Philippines

It was a chilly Christmas night when the family found Tootsie's Homemade Specialties.

Entering Tootsie's felt just like visiting a relatives home.  It's facade doesn't look at all like a restaurant.  It felt like a warm and welcoming house.

As we entered, the place echoed with a chorus hymn as the choir of nuns sang Christmas carols.

The table setting is simple and cute.

Pancit BukOh! (187 php)
For staple, we ordered the Pancit BukOh!  This is our first time to try a coconut infused pancit so we were really intrigued by this.

Pancit BukOh! (187 php)
We absolutely loved the presentation.  At first glace, you'd think it's just coconut.  But if you mix it, you'll see that it's a pancit dish.  This is so good.  The coconut and the pancit combination is amazing!

sus kadyos
Sus Kadyos (340 php)
My mom cooks Kadyos at home in Ilocano style because that's where she grew up.  But, Tootsie's Sus Kadyos is cooked Ilonggo style so it is new for us.  This is a chunky soup with lots of pork bits.  A must try!

inihaw na maliputo
Inihaw na Maliputo (190 php/100 grams)
The highlight of our meal is the Inihaw na Maliputo.  It is a bit expensive but I swear it's so heavenly!  I'd go to Tagaytay just for this alone.

Sweet Toots

Turon Halo-Halo (128 php)
Tootsie's is really impressive because even their desserts are innovative.  The Turon Halo-Halo is delicious!

Ube Palitaw (105 php)
The Ube Palitaw is equally good.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I always believed that dining is experiential.  Our dining experience at Tootsie's is so good that as I'm writing this, I can once again feel the warm nostalgic joy I felt when I dined there with the family.  I definitely want to go back and try more of their offerings.
