They always say that being at Coritos will take you to Bali. Well, I might say it is. It is great for relaxation because the nature is really alive in that area. Although I was expecting a little bit of more sophisticated touch of the garden, my hopes had failed me. The vicinity is too wide to explore with shades of trees and trails to walk on. Since the Day Tour Package is too pricey for us, I decided to ask if we can just have a lunch date and take some pictures. I contacted their facebook page. They seem to be nice and responds easily. They say that we can have an hour of taking pictures provided that our lunch will be Php500 minimum. Game on! 

So after the hot streak of sun at Marian, we headed to Cintai riding a tricycle which is already waiting at the gate. A fare of Php50 for the less than 10 minute ride. Quite pricey too but we don't have no choice. Gutom na ang lola mo at haggard na masyado sa sobrang init ng araw. Upon entering, a guard will ask you what will be your activity and will ask for an ID so he can let you go inside. Jusko, ang haba pala ng lakadin papasok. So I really suggest na you should have your own car if you are planning to visit the place. At the information desk, a staff is already waiting, I told them that we will only have a lunch date so she ushered us at Abadi Restaurant. A small restaurant but with a breath taking view of the pool and forest and tall trees and fresh air. Ahh, I wanna swim and take some rest! Indeed they are right that this place is great for relaxation and not just for a day tour.

At Abadi we were greeted accordingly (Grabe ang pag-asikaso nila sa guest! Great job!) and give us the menu. We decided to order Soup, Pork Dish and Steamed Rice. 

our kind of Lunch at Abadi

Pork BinagoonganCrispy Pork Belly Topped with Fried Eggplant and Special Bagoong Sauce - Php350

Seafood Chowder
Creamy soup of mixed seafood and potatoes - Php180

Steamed Rice - Php60
After lunch we roam around and take some pictures. Naligaw kami bes! Puro villa ang nasuotan namin with wall murals in between. Tired and not quite happy with what we have I just took some pictures. Ang haba ng nilakad namin. 

If I am not mistaken, there are 4 pools, 2 large pools and 2 kiddie pool. They also have the spa cottage which is beside the wonder wall of Cintai. Yun na pala yun. The other one was at the golf course but we didn't actually go there. Malayo na masyado afraid that we might used up the 1 hour already. Kidding, but it's too far na talaga kung lalakadin pababa. But above all, masarap yung food at 5 star for the staffs.
I've visited two of their branch already, one is at Sto. Tomas Lifestyle Strip and the other one at SM Batangas City. The size of the area is a bit just the same. Medyo crowded kapag madaming tao but presentable pa din naman. At Sto. Tomas, we ordered the Baby Back Ribs Full Slab as per staff's suggestion that we ended up asking for more pa sana kasi sobrang sarap niya!

Malambot yung karne, masarap yung sauce at nanamnamin mo talaga sa bawat kagat. It is good for 3-4 persons already and they have side dishes, the skinless potato which taste like the regular potato fries.

My friend also ordered the Php100 Allegra's burger. Masarap din yung patty but too small. Mabibitin ka bes!

At SM Batangas, I am with my husband and we ordered plate dishes of Allegra's. Of course, the Carbonara again and again is on my list.

The Carbonara is not my usual type of Carbonara, sad. Masarap naman siya but I wanted something na medyo may alat, not the creamy one.

My husband had the spaghetti with Chicken this time. The Spaghetti, panalo! Masarap yung sauce and affordable pa with chicken as side dish.

There are still many to choose from their menu so I might visit them again soon to try out something new.

For the love of ice cream and shakes, an inspiration to couples Ma'am Maggie and Sir Heinz, come up a unique business located at the heart of Lipa.

We were served with shakes, pasta, sandwiches and fries enough to make our tummy super busog. Flavorful, enticing and affordable foodie perfect for the wander mommy like me. The weather also didn't stop us for this kind of food tasting, super lamig at mahangin sa Lipa, tapos nasa harap namin ang apat na dambuhalang shakes. Imagine the chilling experience we had!

Listed below are my top favorites:

Garlic Butter Potato Cone - Yummy Fries on the go
No wonder this is my favorite as I didn't have a single photo for this but just enjoy munching every bit of it. I am a garlic flavored fan, so this is a bit bias for me. Masarap eh!
Queen's Grilled Cheese Imperial Ham
Though I am not quite sure about the "pineapple" taste in it, I like how it compliments with the sandwich. Just the right blend of a sandwich I am looking for.

Look how affordable the menus are:

Though these 3 pictures below are not included on my top favorites, I can also assure you that they taste really good. The Chicken Fillet filled in this sandwich tastes like the Chicken Fillet we love at McDonalds.

These pasta seems to taste just the same for me but you can see that they really look different in their appearance. It's like a taste of the "tomato sauce" pasta in each one that makes it the same.

Tomato Basil Parmesan
Four Cheese Pasta
