Bag of Beans: Main and Charito branch review

Tagaytay has been always my perfect getaway destination whenever I need to unwind from all the stress I’ve been receiving. I went here nth times already but still wanting to explore more. Tagaytay has so much to offer! The famous Taal Volcano, cozy hotels that is perfect for staycation, and even restaurants with good food too (Don’t forget to try BULALO! Its a must here.)

So today, I’m going to post here my review about one of the leading restaurant in Tagaytay, Bag of Beans. I’d only be reviewing about Charito & Main branch only. But I will update it as soon as I experience the other branches too.

ABOUT BAG OF BEANS

As of this writing, they already have six branches that located around Tagaytay City. Now 18 years in the service and counting, they are still one of the best/known restaurant.  Their six branches offers different feast for you to enjoy.

FOOD, SERVICE, and PRICE

Main Branch (5 out of 5)

Food is really good. You will enjoy every bite and pieces. The food will give justice to the price. I’m telling you. It’s really worth the price. Ranging from 50 – 1,350 php.

My pick: Blueberry Cheesecake

The cheesecake was really good. I loved how it was so soft and looked like a melted cheesecake. The blueberry really complimented the cheesecake, just right.

They offer:

> Pancakes & Waffles
> Desserts (pies, cheesecake, mousse, sundae, etc)
> Main courses (steaks, ribs, seafood, etc)

  1. They offer breakfast and lunch buffet every WEEKENDS and holidays only.
  2. They accept credit cards.
  3. The serving time is 10 to 15 mins.

Charito Branch (4.5 out of 5)

The food had huge servings compared to the main branch. I was a bit surprised. My order was Grilled Pork Chop (BoB style). The pork tasted too salty for me that I even didn’t finished eating it. I don’t know if its because of the gravy or the pork itself. I tasted a little of their Baby Back Ribs, it was good. The sauce was delicious! The food  is still pricey but worth the penny. Ranging from 50 – 1,350 php.

They offer meals same as in the Main branch.
