Chic Filipino restaurant in Tagaytay


For Metro Manila residents who often want a quick break from the big city, Tagaytay is always a convenient destination. Those who travel there frequently may already have their favorite restaurants.

If you’re looking for a refreshing restaurant to try out, though, you should check out Tipanan Restaurant. The place has a chic, Japandi-tropical interior but still serves familiar Filipino flavors.

The Filipino restaurant has a modern Japanese-Scandinavian interior that makes every corner Instagram-worthy.

It has white walls and wooden wall panels, made with light-colored wood, that are easy on the eyes. Wooden chairs and tables and woven bamboo light fixtures also tie the interior’s theme together.


Tropical resort vibes

To give it a Filipino feel, tropical design is also incorporated in the restaurant’s interior. On Tipanan Restaurant’s vast feature wall are murals of tropical leaves painted by a team of local artists.

Patterned floor tiles also add a splash of color to the usual muted Japandi tones.


Serves Filipino recipes

While Tipanan Restaurant’s interior might suggest otherwise, this dining spot serves Filipino flavors.

Their bulares (P465, ~USD9.22) is a cross between the well-loved dishes bulalo (bone-in beef shank soup) and pares (braised beef stew). They also have stir-fried prawns in salted egg sauce (P760, ~USD15.06) and pinakbet (P320, ~USD6.34), sauteed veggies in shrimp paste.

For dessert, the place offers Filipino Christmas favorites such as bibingka (coconut rice cake) and puto bumbong (purple rice cake) year-round.

However, their krispy halo-halo (P200, ~USD3.96) is something everyone should try. It takes the components of the classic Filipino shaved ice dessert – sans the ice – and turns it into a delightful fried treat.
