Brunch is a hundred times better up in the mountains.
Last week, the boyfriend and I celebrated our fifth anniversary. Yay! We drove up to the foggy transcentral highway in the morning to have brunch in a place with a beautiful view: at West 35 Eco Mountain Resort.
Travel time took about an hour… I think.
I’ve heard about this place a long, long time ago, but we never had the chance to go there since it was too far. Thankfully, we were finally able to go and my tiny old car survived the journey! lol
Since the place is sort of in the middle of nowhere, expect the food prices at the restaurant (Haven Cafe) to be sort of expensive too.
We ordered a two-flavored pizza combo: Ham & Cheese and Hungarian Sausage. It was good!
The Chicken Sisig, however, wasn’t. It’s basically like chicken halang-halang, but placed in a sizzling platter.
Good thing there was dessert.
After brunch, we began exploring the place.
This is their hotel. If you want to stay overnight with your friends/family, they have rooms that can accommodate up to 6 people! You can check out their Facebook page for room rates here.
We saw a baby snake (with a size of an earthworm) there. Watch your steps!
Never too old for playgrounds!
Brunch was indeed better with scenery as beautiful as this, even if the food wasn’t perfect. Overall, I’d rate it 8/10. Would I go back? Probably. And maybe next time I could stay overnight!
Do you have other suggestions of places where I could dine with a view? Don’t hesitate to leave a comment! 🙂
