I read about this home-styled cooking restaurant from the internet. For our last trip down South (or is it up?) of the Metro, a visit to the well reviewed Tootsie's Restaurant was an obvious must!
Indeed Tootsie's exudes a homey appeal. It is just a small restaurant (with an extension wing) with very limited sitting.
Since we came in at such an odd time for a lunch at 4pm (traffic was disastrous and it took us 3 hours, plus some mustered driving skills to navigate our way up to Tagaytay), there were very few people dining, however, I can just imagine how crowded this place must be during peak lunch and dinner time.
Our driving ordeal left me and my boys rather famished. I wanted to order Tootsie's best seller lengua, but I am not sure if my kids would like it. We ended ordering instead, another Tootsie's specialty adobo flakes (which my husband loved to the last bite), fresh lumpiang hubad and fish with potato fries.
For dessert we ordered their special halo-halo turon and ube palitaw.
|Tootsie's Fresh Lumpiang Hubad was delicious, but serving portion quite small...|
|Adobo flakes is highly recommended!|
|My boys love the fish and fries...|
|Their halo-halo turon (with ube and leche flan filling) were quite special! Not your ordinary turon...|
|The ube palitaw was very filling!|
VERDICT: Order their house specialties and you will never go wrong! A trip to Tootsie's is well worth it, however, do make sure that you are not so hungry because you could be waiting for quite a while!
Tootsie's Tagaytay is located at J. Abad Santos cor Aguinaldo Highway Tagaytay to the side of the Tagaytay ridges.
