Teng’s Goto and Lomi Batangas

You definitely would not want to miss this food on Valentine’s Day. You can start the day with a bike ride and then try these unfamiliar delicacies from Batangas. Teng’s Goto and Lomi Batangas is located along the highway, so you can experience dining in an open space with a scenic view from their Nipa Hut restaurant – just the perfect place to enjoy the day with your loved one.

Gotong Batangas is a goto version of Lipa, Batangas. It comes with a twist for those who are not familiar with this dish. It is a soup dish prepared with different offals like liver, tripe, lungs, heart, and tendons, with beef shanks with lots of garlic and ginger. This makes it different from the usual goto – a Filipino rice porridge loaded with tons of garlic and ginger.
