While a road trip to Tagaytay is one of the first things that come to mind when planning a getaway without driving too far, the city can get easily crowded. If you want to visit the cool city but don’t feel like dealing with long queues and crowds, Cavite still has a lot of spots to discover, including this Pinoy-style café in Silang.


Alfresco dining at Salakot Café

Located just a few minutes away from Tagaytay, Salakot Café is a restaurant and event center in Silang, Cavite. They opened in June 2021, and they’ve already become a new must-visit restaurant in the area, due to the unique dining experience and relaxing ambiance they offer.

Outdoor or alfresco dining has become the new normal due to the pandemic and Salakot has a unique spin to it. Instead of having the usual garden setting with tables and chairs, hungry customers will experience dining in mini nipa huts, that are super IG-worthy, while sitting on the floor with comfy pillows. These nipa huts would remind you of the restaurant’s name, Salakot, the traditional Filipino headgear!

If their setup doesn’t give it away already, you can enjoy servings of authentic Pinoy and international dishes at Salakot. Some of their all-time favorites include bulalo, crispy pata, pinakbet, and chicken inasal, which you can get as a salu-salo bundle. Combine these hearty dishes with their ambiance and Cavite’s presko weather; there’s no wondering why guests easily fall in love with the place. Check out their menu here.

After having hearty Pinoy dishes, you can get your desserts at the café where you can choose from different coffee and non-coffee-based drinks and baked goodies. They have fruit-based cool beverages for hot days as well. Don’t miss out on taking photos as their stylish cafe wall!
