La Cocina de Tita Moning Tour

La Cocina de Tita Moning is located at #315 San Rafael Street, SanMiguel District, Manila. Along with an early 1900's aristocratic dining experience, you also get a tour of the Legarda mansion by their well-trained staff. I've blogged about my dining experience here.

Alejandro Legarda Sr., M.D (1902 -1993) and Ramona Hernandez Legarda "Tita Moning" (1904 -1999)

I'm always fascinated with old houses and antiques. And I truly appreciated the care they put into preserving the look and feel of the house as it was in its glory days.
