Tagaytay’s Mahogany Market has rows of food stalls serving beef shank soup. We tried the town’s speciality at Niezel’s Eatery, the bulalo soup was served pipping hot with a side order of crispy fish tawalis. The tiny seniorita bananas on the table were even complementary. The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the constant number of market peddlers interrupting us during the meal. After politely turning them away, I finally managed to enjoy the bone marrow.
