Food Trip: Special Lunch at Antonio’s Tagaytay


It was a cool clear Sunday noon in February in Tagaytay. The weather was just perfect for a perfect Sunday lunch in one of the best restaurants in Asia. It was a great awesome weather for our 3-hour lunch at Antonio’s. Yes, you read it right. We had a three-hour lunch. Mmmmperfecto!


“Antonio’s is much more than a restaurant. It is an experience – – an experience we encourage each and every guest to savor and share.” —


Mai and Chef Tonyboy Escalante — Ohhh so happy and ecstatic to meet Chef Tonyboy! Perfect lunch.
