SUNDAY'S BEST: Memory Lane, Tagaytay City

I pretty much had a jetsetter weekend. ;) <3 Together with friends, I spent Sunday in Tagaytay. We had lunch at Memory Lane despite poor menu reviews I read about the place. :P

Memory Lane is a 50s to 60s inspired restaurant, specialty gift shop, beauty salon, and massage parlor rolled into a country house situated in Magallanes Drive, Tagaytay City. It is a family business owned by  the Magdangal's (read: Jolina Magdangal... Hey Babe! ;))

Her parents and her sister seem hands-on in managing the business. Her sister was in the cashier and her parents were mingling with guests, acquaintances, and family friends when we arrived.
Initial reaction: It's very country!
 Hello bicycling froggy!
 Just really intimate inside.
Old movie posters hanging on one wall...
 We ordered Tagaytay bulalo (660php|good for 4-6 persons already), pinaputok na tilapia (170php|good for 2 persons), and four rice (200php)
We enjoyed the food!! Old blog posts about Memory Lane's food are mostly negative reviews. I guess they already made improvisations on their cooking. :) Jolina's dad even came over to check on us... Despite also some unwelcoming-owners-reviews, ours was different too... 'Daddy Jun' was nice enough to initiate a chat. :)
 Good morning!! Chozz! Bangag pa akech! Parang magbebreakfast lang ang peg!
  I love the witty signages on the wall... Made us read some to laugh on... :) It is here where I got the phrase "Lord, if I can't be skinny, make my friends look fat." In my case, I interchanged the two though... heeh
 Bathroom floors
 Group photo!
There are tables outside/in the veranda too!
Gift shop! Just beside the diner...
Trinkets, etc.
 Lip smackersssss in a bowl
Lotsa country items for sale inside!
The salon
Gazebo on the side 
Memory Lane is really a nice place to hang-out and take photos of :)
 Outdoor grill kitchen inside the gazebo
Anton of Our Awesome Planet said that cooking food in this visually appealing / seemingly nice old school idea might be the culprit of cold food that was served to them. I guess they're not using it anymore, no? ;)

 They also have a function hall/pavillion behind the main place to accommodate big groups/parties/events...
 Cuteeeeee! :*)
