Labor Day spells out "family bonding", so that's what we did on May 1! As a normal family thing, there were some deliberations made first, and after several minutes, it was decided that the destination would be Tagaytay, a great choice for days this hot!

Truthfully, I am not well acquainted with the the place, so I needed to ask my friends about good restos to visit. Good thing my awesome friend Nica responded and gave me a number of options. One of those was this restaurant that you're currently reading about - RSM Lutong Bahay.

The main reason why Nica recommended this place was the magnificent view of the Taal Volcano and the lake surrounding. However, according to her, it's not only the view that is worth paying and visiting for.The food are also something to look forward too!

Anyway, before we begin exploring the dishes. Let us first take a look at the beauty of the place.

Based on my observation, RSM has three (3) areas.

  1. The Indoor Area - there is nothing much to see here, and the air circulation isn't as good
  2. The Semi-Outdoor Area - this is halfway in and halfway out, meaning you'll see the clouds from here, but you won't see the Taal Volcano from that spot
  3. Outdoor Area - this is the coolest part (not unless the sun is too extreme), since it's open air. 
If you get extra lucky, you may get the seat where you can have this view:

As mentioned, RSM Lutong Bahay became famous because of the good view of the volcano. It's really magnificent. You will love the cool breeze and the awesome sight!

Alright, now that you've seen the refreshing view from RSM Lutong Bahay, let's go check out the food!

Inihaw na Pusit Lumot || P95 per 100g

This grilled squid of RSM offered a smokey taste that was really distinct, and unlike some restaurant, this didn't have much sweetness (though not in a bad way), letting you focus on the grilled flavor.

Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso || P365

Creamy Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso that is not too sour! 
This dish came in first, actually and we all loved it! The soup had a thicker consistency than some of the sinigangs we know due to the miso, which made every sip a delightful experience. As for the taste, it was both rightly sour and malinamnam.

Tinutong Laing || P185

This creamy laing was a little different because it didn't have a bite of spiciness. However, since I am not much fan of spicy food, I was able to really enjoy this laing.

Sizzling Tuna Sisig || P330

Next one was the Tuna Sisig which was relatively a lackluster as opposed to the other dishes we ordered. Perhaps it was because of the lack of balance between the spiciness and the flavor itself. Well, at least they didn't use canned tuna for this, unlike other restaurants I've been to.

Inihaw na Liempo || P250

Another reason why we somehow ignored the tuna was this Inihaw na Liempo, which all of us agreed to be really amazing! As a matter of fact, we hailed this as the winning dish among all those we ordered because of its pleasurable sweetness and smokey flavor.

RSM Bulalong Tagalog || P550

I know this is something that RSM is famous for, but I just found it "good" since something was stealing the attention away. On the other hand, my brother found it awesome, so I leave the judging on to you. Anyway, both of us agreed that it had generous serving of meat which was lean.

Okay, so basically, that was all that we had during our great lunch experience here in RSM Lutong Bahay. Here's our happy faces as proof that our tummy got happy as well.

RSM Lutong Bahay - Ratings 
Note: Unshaded stars are equivalents of half-stars.
Place ★★
Taste ★★
Service ★★
Price ★★

There is an apparent premium on the prices of the dishes (perhaps because of the ambiance and stuff), so expect to shed out some of your hard-earned cash, but based on our experience, it was all worth it! What I mean is both the food and the sight to behold are worth of the considerably expensive dishes here in RSM. In other words, I truly recommend this as one of the cool destination here in Tagaytay.

  1. Nagstop over din kami sa Tagaytay but medyo madalian lang. We viewed also that taal yet hindi ganyan ka-clear. Hehe. Uu nga eh. The inihaw na pusit really caught my attention.
