It’s the place to be in Lipa City now. Especially when one has visitors coming over from different parts of the country.

First stop is Cafe de Alps with their talked-about caldereta pasta. It wasn’t supposed to function as an appetizer but it did for us.

Then, debating whether we’ll get some seafood or meat, my friend and I walked deeper inside the park and saw a little Mexican food-truck-like place. So, we decided to tryΒ a little bit of Mexican at El Papito Mexican Street Food to whet our already fully-developed appetites. LOL.

Next stop is dining on sand in Hotspot Bora that offers affordable dishes in big portions for a reasonable prize. Not to mention, they have some musical entertainment to build that “beach-y ambiance” on the side. Therefore, even with shoes that don’t mesh with sand, we trudged our way in and settled on a table near their little makeshift stage.

And of course, a visit won’t be complete with some churros and beignets at J&B Food Corner. It’s something most of my visitors from out of town have tried and loved.

I think, with another batch of people coming to visit soon,Β it will be another food crawl waiting to happen.
