Tagaytay holds a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a kid, we would usually go up to Tagaytay and have family bonding with my other cousins and relatives. With our bondings, we would usually go to different kinds of restaurants within the area. As we grew older, we didn’t get to have the time to go up to Tagaytay because tourists are starting to flock in and it seems to be the same restaurants all over again.
Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, the parents and I decided to have an early celebration knowing that there would be a lot of people who would be celebrating this special occasion as well. We wanted a place where we haven’t tried eating in, something healthy and fulfilling and a hidden place where no one seems to really have discovered about it. Lime & Basil Thai Restaurant fits these categories very well.
Lime & Basil is a Thai restaurant and located at Alfonso, Cavite. This restaurant is near Marcia Adams & Ville Sommet. The gate of this restaurant can be found at your right side. You can only dine in this restaurant through reservation. But, I was able to ask the waiter if it is possible to do a walk-in. You can do a walk-in but during weekends and/or if the reservation list isn’t full.
I am glad I chose the right restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day. As we went inside the venue, a big patio is located at your left side. At the back of the restaurant is their garden where they personally grow and handpick their ingredients. You can also buy through their small store located inside the restaurant.
For our dinner, we ordered the ff: Fresh Spring Rolls (240), Lime & Basil Salad (290), Soft Shelled Crab and Chicken. The food that we ordered was just right for the 3 of us. There was nothing new to the taste – typical Thai food. But what made it different is the ambiance of the place. Since we went there during the night time, the wind was cool and it was a good day to eat Thai food that time. The prices were just right as well. We would be glad to go back & experience Lime & Basil’s different dishes.
