The ride there is worth it!
by | November 06, 2020

Tanay, Rizal has long been a popular destination for Metro dwellers who want to chance upon a view of a sea of clouds. The winding roads in the mountainous municipality are also a favorite among motorcycle riders and cyclists. So when La Franco’s Veranda opened a few months ago, it quickly became a favorite rest stop for passing riders, not just for the satisfying food, but also for the breathtaking views.

La Franco’s Veranda

Located along the Marikina-Infanta Highway, La Franco’s Veranda is an open-air restaurant that serves Filipino favorites.

Their silog meals are crowd favorites due to their affordability (Php 110-160) and large serving portions.

They also serve hot soups like bulalo and lomi, so you can get that Tagaytay experience without going all the way to Cavite!


How to get there

Address: Mayagay 1, Barangay Sampaloc, Tanay Rizal (Along Marilaque Highway)

La Franco’s Veranda is marked on Google Maps. You’ll be able to find it between Martessem and Cafe Katerina.

The restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. They don’t accept reservations, so come early (and on a weekday, if possible). Coming early also increases your chances of witnessing a sea of clouds. You might even be able to catch a sunrise like this:
