A Gastronomical Adventure You Shouldn’t Miss
What makes Crosswinds Tagaytay synonymous with Tagaytay is the food. Locals and tourists will tell you that when you are at Crosswinds Tagaytay, experience the culinary pleasures offered at Café Voi La, a casual dining restaurant. This restaurant is also considered a hidden gem among foodies who already made the trip (or two!) to this food haunt, which has now an outdoor dining canopy area available for people who wanted to dine under the twinkling lights and the cool Tagaytay climate.
Café Voi La offers a smorgasbord of home-styled Asian and international dishes even the pickiest eater will enjoy. It’s also a great spot for families and friends who are eager to dine out while enjoying both the indoor ambiance (or the outdoor table settings) and the overall eclectic and whimsical atmosphere of the restaurant. Diners can also enjoy the restaurant’s open bar with great wine selections and a variety of bestseller cakes.
And if you are looking for a nightcap, you can simply head out to the neighboring Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and enjoy the international chain’s variety of coffee and pastries. But if you are looking for a unique caffeine experience, head to another of Crosswinds Tagaytay’s gems: Ruined Project?.
The pandemic may have changed the original plans and launch for Ruined Project?, but it was a blessing in disguise for this al fresco café as the bare concrete walls, wooden furniture, rustic light fixtures, and the plethora of plants displayed from the floor all the way up to the ceiling created a truly unique destination, especially for the caffeine addicts. The cafe also has a balcony where guests can enjoy the wonderful Crosswinds vista and the cool fresh air of Tagaytay while enjoying a cup of java.
Ruined Project? features most of your Coffee Project favorites, but they also offer branch-exclusive items, like the Shaken Up and Yoga Yogurts. Shaken Up drinks are tea-based drinks that are shaken over a glass of ice. The Yoga Yogurts feature tangy yogurt blended with choice fruits.
