Tagaytay Weekend with Mike at Marcia Adams
I've always wanted to try something new so I searched for a restaurant in Tagaytay that we haven't tried before. Through tripadvisor, I stumbled upon a restaurant with high ratings and when I saw the photos from customers I fell in love instantly so I made a reservation thru text message.
Marcia Adams Tuscany lies in a quiet and hidden boundary of Tagaytay & Alfonso. Hidden but easy to navigate. We came from a chaotic Sky Ranch so all we really wanted was to have a peaceful dinner and to fill our tummies with good food.
We arrived in an off peak time so the customers were really few. I saw Marcia talking to one of his customers/friends, I recognize her to the various blogs I read before. Marcia is a Filipina married to his Italian husband who lived in Tuscany, which I guess was influenced by the Italian architecture and cuisine that led her on to this Tuscany restaurant.
I had a fun time taking so many pictures, I love this place, I love the Tuscan athmosphere, every angle is picture friendly! The restaurant has four parts- main dining area, garden area, lanai area and sunset lounge.
Main Dining Area is a cozy room because of the rustic brick walls. Didn't choose this area because it was dark the time we checked but we regret later on, I recommend to eat here during dinner because it gets really cold outside.

The main course price is a three-course meal which includes an appetizer and dessert. For me, I ordered a Grilled Aromatic Pork while Mike ordered a Chicken Kebab.
For starters, they served us a freshly homemade bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. We finished everything on the plate :)
After we finished our bread, they served us Lettuce Chips with Hummus, another complimentary dish. And of course we finished this too.
