Tagaytay’s Bawai

This is a long overdue post, and it’s going to be a bad attempt at food blogging too! HAHA!

Anyway, two weeks ago, my high school friends and I were in Manila to have a mini-reunion of sorts. On a randomly planned Saturday roadtrip, we went to Tagaytay to try this cyberworld-famous Vietnamese restaurant named “Bawai’s Vietnamese Kitchen”. My friend Sopfia was bent on getting reservations since the restaurant was always full for walk-ins. It was a good thing that we were able to get reservations a day before.

Bawai means Grandmother in Vietnamese. It is named such because the owner, a Vietnamese married to a Filipino is the one who cooks all the food, making it truly authentic Vietnamese. It is a nice, quaint restaurant (open only on weekends) which is located at one of Tagaytay’s subdivisions.

I fell in love with the coziness and of the place and I think I might take inspiration from the interiors to plan my own little place in the future. Apart from the cozy ambience, the food tasted delicious. We ate a lot, all of which I forget the names of. (HAHA, I told you, bad food blogging!) But I swear, they were all really, really good! I guess it’s time to stop the babbling and let the pictures do the talking instead, so here goes.


In a nutshell, Bawai’s was a feast for the eyes and the taste buds as well.
