Can’t decide what to eat once you get to Dahilayan Forest Park? Fret not. I have listed this post as a sort of food diary and a list of things you can definitely munch on like Ian’s Nuts. They sell roasted chestnuts there at the Forest Cafe Park which you can purchase as an edible souvenir to friends and families.
Beef Salpicao and Bibimbap with a side of Kimchi. Their menu is affordable and the service was swift.
It’s a hearty chicken soup for dinner that’s good for two with grilled cheese and mango float for dessert at the Forest Park Cafe before calling it a night.
The weather is frigid at 7AM there. Better bring a couple of sweaters if you’re staying for a couple of days. I recommend you get their hot chocolate because it’s my personal favorite there. It’s made from real cacao beans and the chocolate intensity is mouthwatering. I was already halfway done with my hot choco when I remembered that I had to take a photo of it. They also offer silog meals for breakfast. I added an additional order of waffles which had a side of pineapple. Their balcony view is awesome.
Snacking on some garlic and cheese pizza before trying out their rides. This was pretty good. Then had bulalo for dinner. Soup is the go to during the evenings because it easily warms one up.
Breakfast for Day 2. I had some dangsilog and added an additional fruit platter. It was a chilly and exclusive morning at the Forest Park Cafe because there was no one alse around the premises. Trying out their halo-halo before leaving! Halo-halo is always good any time of the day and at any weather.
If you’re looking for chips and other snackable things to take with you, they have a sari-sari store right beside the Forest Park Cafe which is very convenient. The cafe has a wide variety of food to choose from. I personally don’t see it as a cafe but rather some sort of summer camp mess hall. If neither of these on the list have tickled your fancy, try the food at Pinegrove Mountain Lodge which is just a couple of steps away. You can check it out here.
