Whenever there’s a long weekend coming up, a trip to Tagaytay is almost always a given. But, with how unpredictable traffic down south can get, we almost never know exactly what time we’ll arrive—you’re often likely to end up getting to the city in the wee hours of the morning. This is why it’s best to be prepared with a list of restaurants in Tagaytay that are open round-the-clock is a must. We’ve prepared a list of restaurants open 24 hours in the city, from all-day breakfast places to cafes and bulalohans.
The quintessential Tagaytay breakfast is tapsilog, and you can get that and more any time of the day at Bayani Tapsi. You can go for Tapa Ni Rizal (P95), or tapa cooked sweet, asado-style, or their signature, tender and garlicky Bayani Beef Tapa (P95). Aside from tapsilog, Bayani Tapsi also offers other kinds of silog like Pork Tocino (P85) and Fried Chicken Silog (P90).
Bayani Tapsi is at 249 Francisco, Santa Rosa Road, Tagaytay City.
This 24-hour eatery offers a varied menu that ranges from silogs and classic Filipino ulam to burgers, sandwiches, and pasta. If you’re looking for a classic silog breakfast, Zilog has all kinds, from the usuals like tapsilog and tocilog to more unique ones like Spanish Sarsilog (P65) and Hot ‘n Spicy Tunasilog (P60). You can also warm up with Arroz Caldo (P55, P65/with egg) or their special Sinigang Beef Bulalo (P375/good for sharing).
