Pangasinan is most famous for the Hundred Islands National Park, the golden beach of Bolinao and more recently, the Cabongaoan Death Pool.

A Hidden Gem In Tagaytay: El Cocinero In La Bella Residences


Just when I thought I’ve had enough of Tagaytay, I’ve stumbled upon this charming restaurant that effortlessly transported me to the best of Europe all at once—Greece, Spain, and Italy.

I’m talking about El Cocinero by Chef Arnaldo, a secluded Spanish restaurant veiled inside La Bella Residences, a real-estate development, which prides itself as a “health and wellness haven,” at Barangay Neogan in Tagaytay City.

I visited the restaurant last summer with my family and we were happily surprised to find this off-the-grid dining destination, away from the chaotic side of Tagaytay. We were so drawn not only with the Mediterranean vibes and feels of the place but also with the food, bursting with authentic Spanish flavors! It’s a fusion like no other—cozy atmosphere plus flavorful food equals a truly good time.
