Sometime late last year, my friend Perla Marges messaged me to bounce off some business ideas. She said she was planning on opening a restaurant in Tagaytay. She has been working in the food and beverage industry for more than two decades and she thought it was high time to put her hard work into something she owns.

Two months later, her Facebook wall was replete with announcements of the inauguration of her collaboration with relatives and friends.

Entrada opened in January 2018 but I was only able to visit last August, with my brother Jai in tow.

Perla offered us their best-sellers, she was most proud of the Bagnet Kare-Kare. “I learned this from my mother, she started teaching me how to cook when I was in high school,” she related, waxing a bit sentimental.

“I developed the recipes of everything we serve. They’re mostly Filipino dishes, home cooking with a twist,” she described. The Fresh Lumpia Wrapped in Eggplant, Laing Roll, Sinigang na Inihaw na Liempo, Sinigang na Inihaw na Bangus, Puso ng Saging with Inihaw na Liempo, Creamy Bulalo, and Tikoy a la mode are big hits with the crowd.

“We also have some international food, our family’s favorites,” added my Caviteña pal. Scanning their menu, I spotted a fairly long list of pizza variants.

Two-in-one pizza in their best-selling flavors: Garden Fresh (with greens and fruits) and Beef Stroganoff (stir-fried beef with mushroom)

Portions are very generous and prices are reasonable, average check per person is only P300. “Entrada is really a family-oriented restaurant,” she emphasized.

Entrada also offers catering services within Cavite for a minimum of P500 per head.

Entrada has a seating capacity of 120 which is expected to increase to 200 with the construction of an extension before the year ends. The place has hosted several exclusive functions so yes, you can book the entire place for your events. Photo by Jai Nadal.
