Santa Rosa - Tagaytay Rd, Tagaytay, Cavite, Philippines

Batangas Lomi in Tagaytay (Leonardas Restaurant)

Tagaytay City has become not just a tourist destination but also a food hotspot. It has become a go-to destination of most people who are from Metro Manila and nearby provinces. I'm really proud that I live here and it has its perks. Haha! I recently visited a restaurant near my place and it is Leonardas Restaurant. It was referred to me by South Eats TV, a co-blogger.

It is located along Sta. Rosa - Tagaytay Rd, near Angelfields and Rekados. This is already in Silang, but still a few minutes away from Tagaytay. Before I discuss the food, you should check out their interiors. Very fancy!

Upon entering the place, you will already see the ceramics and figurines. Good news, they are selling it. So if you love collecting these pieces, you should really check them out. And just a note, they don't have aircon inside the restaurant. It can be really warm but I do understand this. Most restaurants here don't really have a/c just because it is only warm here in Tagaytay during summer.

The place is surprisingly spacious enough. They have a lot of tables for the customers.

Yes, they are selling these items. It is a bit pricey because it is "branded" according to their staff.

And for the most awaited part, we'll discuss the food 😛

Leonardas is known for its homemade Buco Creampie. I know there are already a lot of Buko products here in Tagaytay like the pie and tarts. Leonardas giving it a twist really amazed me. It is so good! It is not too sweet and not too creamy, just the right amount of everything. It costs 90.00 pesos per piece and 450.00 pesos for the whole pie. Not bad.

Another best seller of Leonardas is their Batangas Lomi. I am actually a picky eater when it comes to Lomi. This one costs 120.00 pesos. And guess what? I love it! It has no after taste which is my criteria for a good Lomi. Haha! They served us the sticky one. One serving is good for one to two persons, depende sa gutom mo. Haha! 

I was surprised when they served their coffee. This is called a Siphon Coffee where a vacuum coffee maker was used. Two chambers are used for vapor pressure. It pushes the water up into the upper vessel first, then allowing the water to fall back down into the lower vessel. The coffee powder is mixed after the water goes all up. This costs 250.00 pesos and it can fill up three cups.

This is very interesting to me. Haha! This is the first I've seen and heard of this. It's like experimenting back when I was still in school. I also appreciate their staff because they explained it to me and it seems that all of them are knowledgable in doing this. One of them even taught me how it started and who invented it. They are all friendly too. Kudos! :)

The place is very calming and it is a nice place to chill. We went here at around 4pm today and it's a weekday. Perfect day to shoot. Haha! Expect this place to be crowded on weekends. 

They also have tables outside. We dined here because you know ya girl. Natural lighting is life. Haha!

You can just search this place on Waze or Google Map if you will go here via private vehicle. If you are going to commute:

From Tagaytay: Ride a jeep from the Tagaytay City Market going to Balibago. Tell the driver to drop you off at Leonardas or Angelfields. (From Sta. Rosa, vice versa)

They have another branch which is the Leonardas Brew, a boho themed cafe. It is just a few meters away from the restaurant.

I was supposed to try their Mango Mantecado which is their own version of mango float. Unfortunately, it is sold out today. They told me they only have few stocks, especially on weekdays. They always use fresh ingredients and don't want to stock them in a long time which I do understand. I'll definitely go back for that. Haha!

Thank you so much to Leonardas Restaurant for this wonderful experience and to South Eats TV for the referral. 😊
