• Tuny’s Resto Farm // Best New Resto in Silang? (A Review)


Tuny’s RestoFarm, located in Malabag, Silang Cavite, is a passion project of couple Jose Anthony “Tuny” and Emely Mendoza, co-owners of our all-time Filipino favorite Kanin Club. It’s a strictly by reservation only restaurant serving Asian, Italian, Spanish and Surf & Turf set menu, together with a la carte options, of their family’s favorite comfort food.

You can read the F&B Report by Eric Salta on the Tuny RestoFarm couple here, but I got excited when I realized they were the OG’s of Kanin Club. I remember we did a food tour in the Tagaytay area, and we started it with a visit at Kanin Club where I first met Tuny who was serving their iconic Kare Kare and Crispy Dinuguan (circa 2007).

We tried the a la carte menu of Tuny’s, and here’s what we think of the restofarm.


About Tuny’s RestoFarm

It was familiar going to this area because Mrs. Saldo’s is also located in the vicinity. Together they are called the Malabaggers, who made this area famous for awesome garden restaurants with good food in 2022.

Tuny is truly off-the-grid so PLS READ the following:
•  T. Destura (on the right) is marked by a small sign. It is immediately after you turn left from Daang Malabag.
• You need to drive on even after the concrete path ends and even after Waze tells you that “you have reached your destination”.
• Our gate is BROWN (not red). See you!

The farm is the family’s private rest house where they entertain their family and friends, their nature escape during the pandemic until they decided to open it to the public last November 2021.

Tuny is proud to showcase his homemade Smoker and Argentine parrilla using lanzones wood which is abundant in the area. They smoke their own bacon and meats so you can just imagine their charcoal grilled specialties in their set menus.

Drinks & Wine Menu (Corkage – ₱500)

They have a well curated wine list from their foodie friends and wine enthusiasts who would bring them in. You won’t find them in most restaurants in the city.

Here’s a peek into Tuny’s clean and organized kitchen where the food is prepared and presented well.

We visited Tuny’s together with our friend Marge of Balai Indang and their family.

Tip: Make sure to reserve this long family table for your group.


Tuny’s Food

Caprese Salad (₱745). A summery combination of tomatoes, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and burrata.

Loved the burrata with a soft center on a bed of juicy cherry tomatoes and pesto.

Angus Beef Ribeye Salpicao (₱775). Garlicky beef cooked in olive oil.

This is how I like my salpicao—thick cuts marinated well with garlic brown sauce. Use the bread to wipe off the beef jus and olive oil. Ang sarap!

Smoked Salmon Crostini (₱755.00). Smoked salmon, poached eggs, melted cheese, and dill on sourdough bread.

The sourdough is topped with melted cheese and a thick layer of smoked salmon flakes. Mix it with the runny poached eggs. The salmon itself has a lot of flavor and not overcooked.

Callos a la Madrileña (₱725). Ox tripe slow-cooked in a tomato-based sauce.

This callos has a thick slice of ox tripe with a rich mouth feel texture in its tomato-based stew. It’s served with sausage and goes well with the paella. Make sure to wipe off the sauce with the bread. Yum! Yum!

Antonio’s Bandejado (₱795). Tuny’s version of the English breakfast: a pile-up of 2 kinds of farm-made sausages, our farm-smoked bacon, chili con carne, eggs from our free-range chickens, garlic rice, fried saba, and fries. For big appetites.

This is the Filipino Big Breakfast with the sausages and bacon made in-house served with chili con carne, eggs, fries, and saba. It’s like a baconsilog X arroz a la Cubana X English breakfast. Good for family sharing or good for one hungry intermittent faster.

Enjoyed this red wine from Extremadura in Spain that’s made with Shiraz/Syrah with oaky notes and hint from blackberries and red fruit. Pairing well with the meats, it was lovely to drink in the cool Silang weather.

               Seafood Paella (₱675). Made with prawns and plump New Zealand mussels.

Paella was good—served in a small cast iron plate topped with 3 big shrimps and 3 mussels. Good to share for 2-3 persons. Loved pairing this with the Callos and the Salpicao with some olive oil sauce.

Bolognese Pasta (₱525). Very meaty & creamy tomato-based pasta that most children (and adults) like.

Their pasta was quite good as well, with generous ground meat, with parmesan all over and with balanced tomato sauce flavor that was not too sweet.

(Note: They are also known for their Carbonara that the kids loved.)

We noticed how nice the ceramic cups and plates were and how well the food was presented. It was good to have coffee with the dessert specially with the cool weather.

Tuny’s Ensaymadas (₱625). Classic ensaymada toasted in butter and melted cheese, topped with salted eggs and our farm-smoked bacon. Served in a warm skillet.

Must order this ensaymada mess served with toasted butter, melted cheese and topped with their housemade bacon and salted egg. Served in a warm skillet and best to enjoy a la mode with pulvorones gelato. The best!

Check out their dessert menu.

Crunchy Banana Fritters (₱325). Bananas bathed in caramelized sugar.

Small chunks of banana coated in caramelized brown sugar and served on a banana leaf. Turon without the stick. Goes well with the ensaymada.


Final Thoughts

Overall, this is probably one of the best private garden restaurants that opened in Silang this 2022. You can taste Tuny’s passion for Spanish and Filipino comfort food in the quality of the ingredients and the flavors—malasa na masarap.

If you’ll go for a la carte, order the Burrata Salad, Salpicao and Callos that you should pair with the paella. The Antonio’s Bandejado and Tuny’s Ensaymadas are a must order, the signature dishes of the restofarm. Budget about ₱1,200/head for ala carte + wine. We will definitely go back for the set menu at ₱2,200/head.

Congrats Tuny and Emely for an awesome restofarm concept! All of us in the group were raving about the food after and wanting to go back for more. We truly enjoyed our conversation about your Santiago de Compostela and Tasmania Tandem Biking adventures over good Spanish wine. Until the next foodie adventure. 🙂
