Enjoy Modern Filipino Food at The Lake District


In the middle of the team building of the Team Aldous, we went out to dinner at a restaurant that's known for their posh interiors and delicious Filipino comfort food. They serve Filipino food we've all grown to love while adding their personal touch to it. I must say we braved the strong rains for this restaurant and it was worth it.


Lake District Sisig (P280)

I must say they took a classic Filipino dish and made it even better. I have to give mad props to Chef Marga Espino for not only this dish but all the dishes in the menu. It won't be long before she becomes a recognizable name in the culinary industry. 
 

Open Faced Empanada with Longganisa and Itlog na Maalat (P200)

Without a doubt my favorite dish of the night, this one had the makings of the next classic Filipino dish. It's also ideal for those who are weight watching as it's pretty light on the tummy.

Spicy Garlic Butter Seafood Platter (P380)

Despite being spicy, I still dove in this platter since I'm a seafood lover. Who could say no to shrimps and mussels right? I loved that it had garlic butter and it's not often that something makes seafood better but it did.


Porchetta with Lake District Liver Sauce (P400)

I love porchetta and I mean it when I say that. I'm going to think of the number of calories it contains but I'll forget that when I see it right before my eyes. This one's stuffed with herbs and spices and deep fried to perfection. Up to now, I can still feel its crunchiness and tastiness.

Adobo Glazed Pork Ribs with Pineapple Rum (P480)

When you have a restaurant whose ribs are slow cooked, you've gotta try them. The Lake District's ribs had adobo sauce and that's a HUGE factor. Pair it up with pineapple slices marinated in rum and cinnamon, corn on a cob with spiced honey compound butter and tomato salsa and you have a winner.


Classic Tagaytay Bulalo (P480)

Their Bulalo's meat is so tender as it was completely meat off the bones. It was presented nicely too. Of course, this goes perfectly with rice and we had lots of that.








Cream Coffee with Pineapple Marmalade 

You shouldn't leave Tagaytay until you've tried this gem. It's loaded with two things that Tagaytay is famous for - coffee and pineapple. I have to admit this dessert was the perfect sweet ending (pun intended) to our awesome dinner.

We'll be back, Lake District! Ciao!
