The Unassuming LZM Restaurant

It's amazing how some of the best Filipino dishes around can come from the most uninspired, unnoticeable eateries. 

Take LZM Restaurant, for instance, who was cited at Unilever Foodsolutions, the Department of Tourism and the Inquirer Lifestyle's Sooo Pinoy (Evolving Filipino Flavors): National Search for the Ultimate Pinoy Dish as one of the restaurants serving the best daing na bangus and sinigang in the country.

Unassuming little place they have here.  One you would most probably have ignored (I know I have.)  This eatery comes complete with the musty airless room, rude servers and the occasional errant tsinelas (slippers) on top of the side counter (I kid you not.)


But what it lacks in ambiance, it surely makes up for in delicious dishes as LZM Restaurant is known, as their name states, for their "Lutong Bahay (home cooked) Specialties."

Daing na Bangus (Php350)

Their Daing na bangus is definitely a must try.  Very tasty and not too salty.

I don't know about you but woe is the person who comes between me and my bangus (milkfish) belly.  Yum!

Bulalo (Php450)

There's also the Beef bulalo with a healthy serving of veggies and beef chunks.  It's the perfect dish to have whenever one finds oneself facing the cool Tagaytay winds.


Crispy Pata (Php450)

Their Crispy pata is also a must try.  Pork thigh marinated with salt and pepper (and some other spices too), then cooked until tender.  Crunchy skin and all those glorious meaty bits just melting in your mouth.  Mmmm...

Servings are good enough for sharing with 4 or more people.

Maybe next time I'll try the Sinigang as well.  Yum!  J

  1. Boneless ba yung daing na bangus nila? Sarap nyan sa fried rice!

  2. Would love to have daing na bangus now! That crispy pata looks so good too! :D

  3. Servings for 4 people or more?! Good value!

  4. Owww. I tried Diner's Bulalo last time I went to Tagaytay. :)

  5. @i♥pinkc00kies: Yup. Daing na bangus is love. =)

    @anney: Yup! Boneless. =)

    @Sumi Go: Please try to visit them. You really won't be sorry. The food's really good. Just ignore the ambiance (of lack of) and the rude servers. =D

    @Pinay Travel Junkie: Yup. It's really affordable. There were also a lot of people dining when we were there too. =)

    @michymichymoo: Haven't heard of that yet. Is it any good? =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
