Tagaytay has always been and remains to be my family's not-so-secret weekend getaway. Take this month for instance, I have been to Tagaytay twice already and we're going back this weekend to celebrate my birthday! Yep, we love it that much!
My second visit was quick though, it lasted for only half a day because I went there for work. Before heading to our target destination, my colleague Iza and I decided to grab lunch first. Iza, I then found out, is also a food lover. Throughout the ride down South, we were comparing notes on the different food places that we have dined in Tagaytay.
While our list didn't vary much, Iza offered to take me to this place that has become her newest Tagaytay favorite called Army Navy.
Army Navy is located inside the Yellow Cab property along Aguinaldo Highway. I got so amused when I saw the counter. It is located at the left side of the Yellow Cab building with tables scattered outside. Dining here is done Al Fresco style. The structure looked like a bomb shelter which perfectly matches the theme of the restaurant.
The menu is simple. Just as the header says "What will it be today? Burger...Burrito...Both?" However, even how simple it was, I had a hard time choosing which one to try first so I just allowed Iza to surprise me and she took care of ordering our lunch.
Waiting time was longer than usual because I was told that they prepare each order on the spot. No pre-assembled burritos here so freshness is highly guaranteed.
Finally, the 20 minute wait is over! Our friendly server carried our trays of burritos to our table. The sight of our huge burritos with a slice of lime brought silence to the table. A fork on one hand and a knife on the other, in one swift motion, we began to ATTACK!
Iza got me the Steak Burrito (Php. 155) that has juicy pieces of beef combined with Mexican rice, veggies and cheese wrapped in soft tortilla. While I normally add lots of garlic cream sauce to my burrito, this one was so flavorful that I only remembered to add some when I was already halfway through my meal.
Here's a must-try food stop in Tagaytay especially for those who would like to have a short break from the regular local cuisine. I will definitely be back and this time, I'll try the burger.
Army Navy is located along Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City.
