One cold morning in Cavite, when I woke up, my ever dearest tastebuds are craving for something yummy hot. Instead of indulging myself with neither a 3 in 1 nor a starbucks (which I am not a fan of), I decided to give my tummy a treat for a special bulalo (Bulalo is a famous Filipino soup dish with the beef bone marrow as its main ingredient and some veggies.) Without further a do, I took my jacket and immediately headed off to Tagaytay.
I haven’t been to Mahogany Market before so when I reached Tagaytay Rotonda, I asked some locals of its whereabout.
How To Get There:
by Public Transpo
You can take any buses going to Alfonso/Mendez, Cavite or Nasugbu/Balayan, Batangas. At the Rotonda, take a jeepney with route passing by NBI Tagaytay. Ask the driver to drop you off at Mahogany. Jeepney fare: Php8.00.
From Tagaytay Rotonda, just go straight to the road going to Batangas. Once you see the row of restos like Pancake House, Leslie’s, RSM; you’ll see a Y-road with a Petron Gas Station in the middle. The left road is still the road going to Tagaytay, so turn right and look for the Hall of Justice Building. Mahogany Market is just at the back.
The Mahogany Market is famous for its Bulalo. The Bulalo here is made from fresh beef straight from the market’s daily produce. There’s a lot of food stalls and carinderia in Mahogany Market, yes, there’s a lot to choose from; don’t worry, the waitresses-slash-servers-slash-barkers will help you decide, promise.
You can try their Papaitan for Php80.00. (My first time ever to try Papaitan and I loved it!)
