SUMPTUOUS SUNDAYS: Marcia Adams


This week has been a bit stressful and packed as I am now in the process of procuring suppliers for my wedding next year; so much to do and so many choices that I am overwhelmed! Remind me to take a break!

To take my mind off the preparation for a while, I'm blogging about the place where our forever had its finality: Marcia Adams.

PRICE RANGE: Appetizers: Start at P225; Salad: Starts at P300; Main Course: Starts at P700; Dessert: Starts at P100



Marcia Adams is a rustic- style restaurant serving Mediterranean fare. Great food + lovely place= great experience; an equation Marcia Adams has so perfectly adopted that's why it's one of the most- visited and must- visit restaurants in Tagaytay.

The place has two venues: this is the first one, a stone house where you can dine and purchase some consigned goods.

 Small room inside the stone house; for intimate, private gatherings.

The bigger al fresco area that can sit up to 60 people. There's my Pikachu after the proposal - ah, writing about this makes me smile from ear to ear! :)




Let's go to the delicious food!

 Free oven- baked, homemade bread dipped in Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil.

 AEGEAN SALAD

A refreshing salad that's exploding in flavors; it's sweet, tangy, and earthy at the same time; gotta love those fresh peppercorns; they added the surprisingly good earthy twist to the salad!

AMALFI PRAWNS

We opted for a light appetizer to make way for our giant main courses; 

CERTIFIED ANGUS STEAK WITH TRUFFLE BUTTER

A sizeable steak that can feed two people; the steak is grilled to perfection and I love that I can still taste beef, if you know what I mean; the Truffle Butter topping added a dash of creaminess and it accompanied the steak very well. Those truffled fried marbled potatoes have the perfect crisp!

GRILLED LAMB CHOPS WITH SHEEP'S MILK CHEESE

It's been a while since I had lamb and I thoroughly enjoyed this one; slightly burnt, soft lamb with creamy cheese with marbled potatoes and grilled tomatoes.

P.S. You can order rice too!

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM WITH SAUTEED CHERRIES

Marcia's dessert servings are just small, which is actually what the size of desserts should be; it's only meant to cleanse your palate and end your meal on a sweet note. This is a straightforward dessert and the sauteed cherries were lovely; however, I was expecting a more artisan- tasting ice cream to complete the experience because this one tasted like commercial ice cream.

LAVENDER CREME BRULEE

PS, I love Creme Brulee and the lavender sauce of Marcia Adams's version gave it a lovely floral taste; trust me, it's good!

The proposal made our meal even sweeter, but even without it, I'd love to go back because the food here lived up to my expectations, plus the place is so relaxing!

Marcia Adams is located in J.Rizal St., Bgy. Sicat, Alfonso, Tagaytay City. Give them a call at 0917-8011456.

11 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Awww... I love how sweet and cozy the setting for your proposal is, he must have planned for it really well! I am truly happy for you, Ms. Martha and please take time to relax and pamper yourself, I know how stressful it is to prepare for a wedding. To ease the stress I suggest you give your maid of honor and bridesmaids tasks so you don't have to carry all of the burden. You can even ask your groom for help, I'm sure he'd love to do things with you and for you. Cheers to your happy ending! Ps. The food looks amazing! Yum!
