On our 6th day in the Philippines, yes, we decided to have dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant, Bawai’s 😀 And it was ideal too because it was practically in the same area where we were staying in Tagaytay.
We actually wanted to eat dinner at Bawai’s the night before but was turned away as it was by reservation only. Bawai’s is only open 3 days a week (Friday-Sunday) and you must order in advance.
Bawai is a family-owned business with the 1/2 of the owner is a Vietnamese lady. Bawai comes from the Vietnamese word bà ngoại which means, “grandmother”.
Since the place is really the home of the owners, they have very limited space in the second floor area (the first floor is reserved for parking), so with our big group (10 adults and 4 kids), we were designated at the garden gazebo.
We can’t complain! With 4 kids, our group can be rowdy. We actually liked our private space as we were able to enjoy the cold Tagaytay weather. If you check the photo above, there are lots of Vietnamese products being sold including Vinamit and Trung Nguyen coffee (shelf). They were expensive of course! 😛
We ordered our favorite Vietnamese dishes. And we were happy that we got Bay’s stamp of approval. She said the dishes were authentic Vietnamese recipes. 😀
Visit Bawai’s in Tagaytay at J. Hernandez Street, Pruok 5, Bucal, Silang, Cavite but contact them first by phone +63 920 972 2924.
