A few days ago, T.Dining got a chance to visit Antonio’s for a much needed and refreshing trip to the picturesque Tagaytay destination. Known for its old colonial-style mansion and lush greenery, Antonio’s is a lovely escape from the city landscape that pervades one’s daily life. Joined by Chef Tonyboy himself — incredibly vibrant and a truly gracious host — the three-hour lunch went by like a breeze.
To start off the meal, we were in for a treat with a generous serving of raclette with several kinds of chutney. The herb salad that followed was a symphony of greens, dried fruits and nuts with flavours so light yet immensely satisfying. The tomato soup was delightfully light and delicately seasoned, which made for a fitting transition to the main course.
