Weekend Foodtrip with the Family at Tierra Alta, Valencia

After my Saturday class on the first Saturday of August, I hurried home so that the entire family could go and try Tierra Cafe for the first time. This was going to be my brother's treat so I was pretty excited about what food to eat. I made an earlier post about the Tierra Cafe here  and I loved my first experience there, seeing how adequate the servings were and how the presentation was really pleasing to the eye.

It was a good thing that we reached the place a few minutes before the sun set. After waiting for the brother pay for the entrance fee (P200 for each person and consumable), we took a walk around. This was my first time to walk around in daylight and I could finally see the pools and the cabanas. They had started to turn on the lights around the place, and in the growing dusk, the yellow lights looked warm, soft and pretty.

Although we live just a few minutes away, we were clicking away like crazy tourists.  The place is just so pretty. The lighthouse looked magnificent against the pale blue sky, and a gentle breeze was blowing. In the distance, you could see some lights in the city turning on.

The food was great, always. Most of the food on the menu cost an average of P250 to P350 per dish which is not bad considering the size of the portions. However, you will run out of rice at one point or another, especially if you get the baby back ribs, so might as well order an extra helping of rice with your meal. I tried the chicken cordon bleu which came with a side of mashed potatoes. You can replace the potatoes with rice  if you want to, but for this meal I wanted something warm and soft and buttery, and mashed potatoes fit the bill quite nicely. My dad loved his yellow fin papillote, which I had tried on my first visit here.

The menu is not that extensive, but you cannot try them all at one go. I'm curious to find out good the John Dorry fillet is, so I'm eyeing that for my next visit.

Tierra Alta has really a wonderful backdrop, perfect for a restaurant to sit there. I have yet to go. If only it's just a pedicab ride away. Haha.

Yup, I think the distance is prob the only drawback when it comes to this place :)
