Tikim 65: Villa Tortuga (Taal, Batangas)

Krisha and I are so lucky to had a chance to take tour and experienced the Colonial experience at the Heritage Town of Taal, Batangas and taste their best foods in town at Villa Tortuga.. Another getaway foodies at the South...
Villa Tortuga, Calle M. Agoncillo Street
Long table for family and friends
Detailed plate with vintage napkin cloth

Vintage Details on utensils
We have a 5 course meal for lunch, so.. We started off with their nutritious vegetable soup.. It was really good! The broth is so tasty plus the vegetables that they used is so delicate, malunggay and pechay "bok choi"
Spring Onion Rice
Famous Tapa
Their famous tapa was so delicious, the pork was so soft and cooked well.. 
Adobong Dilaw
This is another way of cooking adobo, it really looks like chicken curry but it's not.. They used a lot of luyang dilaw "turmeric" that's why its color is yellow obviously.. One of my favorite dish that they served...
Pininyahang Baboy
Another delicious food served to us, the sweetness and the citrusy taste of the pineapple blends well with the pork. Well balanced meal.
Atlantic Mackerel or La Caballa in Spanish
The fish was so good, so delicate and tasty. It look so simple yet the taste was so rich and succulent...
Suman "Sticky Rice" for dessert
Rich Local Chocolate

We enjoyed our dessert.. So Filipino... The rich chocolate is a must! I love the bitter sweet taste of the cocoa with milk.. The suman is not that sweet, it comes with the the rich chocolate, taste good  together..
