Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

Day 1: Road Trip to Pagudpud

Day 1: Road Trip to Pagudpud
First stop was Vigan, we arrived at around 7:00pm. We had our dinner at a restaurant near the Church. We had Vigan Empanada as our appetizer, then we had Vigan Longanisa and Bagnet.

Vigan Bagnet is the Ilocano version of "Lechon Kawali". Where chunks of "liempo" or pork belly is deep friend until crispy.

Vigan Empanada is a mixture of mixed vegetables with an egg yolk and is wrapped in rice dough, then deep fried until crispy.

After our dinner, we toured the preserved section of centuries old ancestral homes of Vigan... and for a while, it seems like a travel back in time... you have to pause and really have to enjoy the beauty of what was one of the earliest Spanish settlements in the Philippines. I even wonder how these centuries-old facade has been preserved over time! It is just a sight to behold!

Next stop is where to spend the night.

It is a holiday season and all Hotels within Vigan is fully booked. Since this trip is not planned at all, we don't have any Hotel reservations and we have to keep moving to find a place to stay.

We were referred to Cabugao Beach Resort which is around 15-20 minutes drive from Vigan. Fortunately, there are two rooms available, just enough for my family and my friends.

Cabugao Beach Resort is a surprising package. The beach is just perfect for a getaway... away from the busy pace of Manila.
