Upon arrival at the restaurant, I was instantly impressed with its very welcoming and "fresh" ambiance featuring glass walls with a 180-degree view of the surroundings. Located right at the ridge, it offers guests an overlooking view of the famed Taal Lake and Volcano while savoring on the mouthwatering dishes they offer.

Mezze (PHP 700)

Our awesome food experience started with a serving of an appetizer called Mezza. Served with flat breads and 4 Mezzes - Sauteed Chicken Liver and Garlic Confit, Spinach with Bacon Jam, Hummus and Chorizo with Garlic. It's a nice way to start your food adventure at Taza while waiting for the other dishes. And don't forget, it's best eaten with hands. :)

Watermelon Salad (PHP 295)

A delightful combination of fresh romaine lettuce, batavia, pancetta, kesong puti from Laguna, cashew, chickpeas and drizzled with calamansi dressing. Taza's Watermelon Salad is a very refreshing salad, I must say!

Taza Salad (PHP 385)

The restaurant's signature salad, Taza Salad is a combination of quinoa, cherry tomatoes, wild arugula, farm-fresh romaine lettuce, microgreens, dried mangoes from Cebu, radish, beets, a la minute tarragon and tossed in white wine vinaigrette. I love the added flavor that the dried mangoes give to the fresh and crisp veggies. Definitely a must-try!

Tomahawk Porkchop (PHP 800)

Perfectly fried bone-in pork chop weighing approximately 1.2 kilograms per serving. Taza's Tomahawk Porkchop is bursting with rich flavors. The meat is so tender and falls off the bone. It pairs very well with the mashed potatoes and sweet caramelized onions served on the side.

As the saying goes "save some space for desserts." So, we ended our delightgul lunch with their yummy servings of exceptional desserts. We had Olive Oil Ice Cream (PHP 215) with glazed Tagaytay pineapple, Napoleon (PHP 225) which is made from homemade mascarpone cheese, barako coffee and otap and the sinfully delicious Molten Chocolate Cake (PHP 225) made from Alfonso Cavite's tablea chocolate and topped with Pato queso de bola ice cream.
