Tagaytay’s Bulalo Strip Draws Tourists

TAGAYTAY CITY, Cavite - Bulalohan Street in Barangay Mendez Crossing East is one of the areas frequented by both local and foreign tourists in this ridge city during the summer vacation.

The reason: The row of eateries on the street serve the best and cheapest ''bulalo'' (beef-bone marrow-vegetable soup) and some Cavite delicacies.

With the beauty and splendor of Tagaytay, particularly the panoramic view of Taal Volcano and Lake, and over 230 cozy and simple restaurants, the city was tagged as a prime tourist destination and dining area nearest the National Capital Region (NCR).

Mayor Bambol Tolentino and other officials said they expect millions of people to trek to the city for the Holy Week pilgrimage and the summer vacation.

The city's 77 churches, seminaries retreat places in the city and Picnic Grove, People's Park and other resorts, hotels, inns and restaurants along the seven-kilometer ridge road and the Bulalo Street are the busiest areas during the season.

The eateries along the street serve the nutritious ''bulalo'' and Holy Week foods such as paella, arroz ala valenciana (rice foods) and, bakalaw (shredded codfish mixed with bell pepper, olive oil and some other ingredients), among other Spanish-Cavite delicacies, fried tawilis and other fish foods.
