Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Philippines

Kookay's Foodhouse (Closed)

Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Mendez East
Tagaytay City, Cavite

A friend of mine suggested this place for me to try. She sent me a few photos and I got really curious. It was just a few minutes away from my home. I know there are already a lot of themed cafe in Manila, but it is not like that here in the province especially here in Tagaytay. I got to try it today with my fam and here is my super honest (first impression) review about this themed cafe.

When we got in, I was really happy because almost everything is pink! Haha! We had to remove our shoes/sandals before going in. They will provide foot sacks for you because of the carpet. Not a bad thing. However, for the kids, it is a hard part since some of them doesn't really like wearing it. 

But as I have said, this is going to be a super honest review. I went there to try it and post it on my blog so whatever the outcome is, I just had to write it. I have no intention of destroying anything here. I just want to tell our first experience. 

We had a hard time (well, kinda) with the menu. The photos on the menu are very limited. We asked the staff about the foods that they serve but she keeps on asking her coworker instead. She also said that the asado siopao was already for sharing (jumbo) but it is not and it is 99 pesos. I know that they just started last September but I think it is not a good thing. In spite of that, I understand that they are just new and there is always a room for improvement. 

Mango Graham Milkshake

We ordered fries (99 pesos), croquettes (99 pesos), waffles (149 pesos), asado siopao (99 pesos) and a mango graham milkshake (179 pesos). We paid 650+ for everything including the onesie.

To be honest, everything is so "instagramable"! Even so, the food was just "okay". The prices are not bad but the foods (that we ordered) are not worth it. There is nothing special about it. The only food that I liked is their croquettes. The siopao was implausible for 99 pesos! It was not included in the photos because they had to reheat it. They served it cold. 

For the onesie, you can wear one for only 50 pesos. They have a variety of sizes for kids and adult. I chose this Stitch because why not? Haha! The place is filled with stuffed toys. I really like the place, tbh, even though it is not that spacious. If you want to try this place, it is near Balinsasayaw and Nanay Dorie's Bulalohan. It is just along the highway and is easy to find.
