Another Reason to Visit Taal Vista: Tāza Fresh Table!

Taza Fresh Table

        We've stayed in Taal Vista a couple of times already. It's definitely the first place in mind when we think of relaxing in the cool weather of Tagaytay. In fact, it's so cool to look back during our first time at Taal Vista and another family trip 2 years ago when Rain was still small. We've been back plenty times since then. And a lot of nice changes as occurred as well. One of which is Taal Vista's old Magnolia Pavillion which has now been converted to a delicious farm-to-table concept restaurant, Tāza Fresh Table.




Tāza Fresh Table

        It was a pleasure for us to experience Tāza once again for dinner during our staycation there with our other blogger friends who love food as much as we do. The structure used to be Magnolia Pavillion where they held functions and Sunday masses before. And they did a great job transforming it into a classy but homey restaurant.

Comfortable seating everywhere! But anyway, moving on to the food!


MEZZE starters

        We started with the MEZZE starters (P769) served with flat breads. You can choose 4 from 10 different spreads. But for the night, we had Hummus, Sautéed Chicken Liver, Babaganoush, and everyone's favorite, the Spinach with .... wait for it... BACON JAM! It's the kind of starter that would make you fear that you might get full already because it's just so good!


Tāza Salad

        For greens, we had the Tāza Salad (P411) made with farm-fresh romaine, microgreens, wild arugula, beets, radish, cherry tomatoes, Cebu dried mangoes, sprinkled with quinoa, and drizzled with a la minute tarragon - white wine vinaigrette. Truly a fresh salad that's nice to have before a heavy meal.


Alugbait Salad

        We also got to try their new Warm Local Spinach Salad (P487), also another delicious salad with a mixture of different flavors and textures. Vegetarians will be happy with all of Tāza's salads for sure.


Seafood Stew

        We also had this heart warming Seafood Stew (P602) composed of fish, squid, mussels, and shrimp all stewing in a tasty spiced tomato broth.


Squash Agnolotti

        The Squash Agnolotti (P394) was absolutely *mwah*! Aldente Agnolotti stuffed with delicious sweet squash, sprinkled with toasted nuts and lots of cheese! Drooling right now :( 


Mushroom and Spinach Matagliati

        Here's another favorite of mine. The very creamy Mushroom and Spinach Matagliati (P427). You will hardly ever notice that there's a leaf inside there because of its creaminess. Plus, I love love love mushrooms! So this is a winner for me.

        I'm definitely going to try their other pasta soon as everything sounds delicious! Oh I was able to try their Lobster Fetuccini! Read about it here!


Beef Stew

        Next is the Beef Stew (P635) is also very hearty, with a melt-in-your-mouth beef, and a very flavorful broth.


Homemade Bacon

        Of course, the dinner would not be complete especially for my Richie, my picky eater husband, without the Homemade Bacon (P191). These beautiful slabs of bacon are cured for 10 days and then smoked for 6 hours. It is served with an apple-mango compote. 


Taza Sampler Pizza

        Tāza Fresh Table also makes delicious pizzas. If you can't make up your mind on which pizza, you can try their Sampler Pizza (P761) with all the flavors in it. There's Zucchini and Squash Blossom, Salsa Verde wit Pancetta, Four Cheese, and Margherita. You can really taste the freshness of the ingredients and the pizza dough.


Tomahawk Porkchop

        Now let's head on to the more serious stuff. Entrees. And this Tomahawk Porkchop (P865) really caught everyone's attention as soon as it was brought out. The Tomahawk pork chop were simply but ingeniously  cooked with caramelized onions, bananas, and pork jus. 


Peanut Butter and Jelly Tart

        And for dessert, all hail their new Peanut Butter and Jelly Tart (P219)! This gorgeous piece of dessert has all the right ingredients to make it an addicting one.  


Olive Oil Ice Cream

        This next dessert is not an ordinary vanilla ice cream. Although it may look like it. This is Olive Oil Ice Cream (P235)! And it is glazed with Tagaytay Pineapple. This is definitely a pleasurable way of cleansing one's palette. 

        Tāza Fresh Table is just one of the many reasons why staying or visiting Taal Vista is such a delight.
