Taco Shack, A New Place in Tagaytay for Good Tacos and More


A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I drove all the way to Tagaytay just to have a little "us time," away from all parenting despondency.  It was the start of the long weekend with a Monday holiday so as expected, there was the horrendous traffic.  With a long weekend on the rise, people seemed to run to Tagaytay for a quick getaway from Manila. 

And well, we were two of those who exactly did it.

We stayed in Kasa Luntian for one night without any plans at all. We left home at 2 Pm and and got there at 5 Pm.  With check in a breeze, we decided to go out and have dinner outside.  To our surprise, it was hard to get seats to the restaurants we visited and parking was worst.

Adding to the list of our favorites is Taco Shack, which is fairly new to us, or maybe we have not visited Tagaytay for quite some time mow.


We decided to dine here as it was easy to locate, just a stone throw away from the rotunda.  It was the only restaurant that had no cars lined up in the parking just in front of the resto, so we just crossed our fingers that the food here is good enough.  From the outside, Taco Shack looks nothing special.  Just another Tex-Mex joint trying to put off a good impression.  What was off to me was the huge menu board placed unpleasantly above the order window.

I mean, they could do way better, like putting to use better photos and nicely printed fonts, it however helped us to order.  Let me also add to that, the menu was cheaply made.

Talking about the menu, it's a mix of Tex-Mex, Filipino and Asian dishes.

Ordered the Sizzling Sisig (photo above) over the Lengua for the husband and had Mexican Beef Taco.


Was so excited about this beautiful bowl of Mexican Beef Nacho.

I was impressed by the serving size as equated to it's super affordable price of P 72.00.  I mean, how can you go wrong with the perfectly cooked crispy nacho bowl, nesting huge servings of Mexican Chili with loads of lettuce and tortilla chips all blanketed with a velvety melted mild cheese.

I love the flavor of the chili, btw, fancy enough for my palate and serving can be good for two persons.


Another gorgeous item on their menu is their Pizzadilla, a portmanteau of pizza and quesadilla.  It's thin enough to be the thinnest pizza with a punch.  I mean, i't heavy on the stomach and full of cheesy and buttery flavor, with a hint of garlic. Perfect for beer (I guess) or wine!

You have to eat it hot as it's a bit chewy when gotten cold.

I mean, I'd  go for this any day over chips! 

If asked if  I'd still go back here, I'd say YES!

The service is ok, the food didn't take that long to serve, fall short on ambiance though. Would love to try some other stuff and their Shabu-Shabu.  I heard this place also has a commanding view of the famous Taal Lake and Volcano over at the rooftop.
