Batangas for me is one under-appreciated food city in the country. The family owns a farm in Batangas, and whenever we visit the place, we would always be surprised with new finds, new hole-in-the-wall, new treats Batangas has to offer.
That is why when TLC and Sky Cable together with sponsors Mitsubishi Motors, Datu Puti, Goldilocks, invited me to join their food tour in Batangas, I was all game!
