Eco Hotel Announces Chinampa Taqueria Grand Opening in Tagaytay

Eco Hotel is excited to announce the opening of its third restaurant venture, Chinampa Taqueria. The green hotel chain has recently been trying its luck in the food industry, with this Mexican restaurant as its latest brainchild. The grand opening is set on October 31st, 2018 at 6 PM in Cabins by Eco Hotel, Tagaytay.

Chinampa is the first passion project by Chef Elgin Alonso upon returning to the Philippines. Elgin was previously the Sous Chef at the Ritz Carlton Dubai, and came back home to Manila earlier this year. He wanted to introduce authentic Mexican cuisine to the Filipino palette, and after surveying the Tagaytay food scene discovered that this was exactly what was missing.

The roof deck at Cabins by Eco Hotel provides a quaint and unique location for this taqueria, with its unobstructed view of Taal lake and an open-air set up to enjoy the chilly Tagaytay weather. It’s a great way to enjoy classic Mexican dishes, such as soft tacos and burritos. Appetizers like Nachos and Chili Dynamite match perfectly with a cold beer.

Food is prepared fresh daily by Chef Elgin, as he also caters to the in-house guests. Chinampa offers Huevos Rancheros, a Mexican breakfast staple, for that extra authentic kick. The taqueria is open for lunch and dinner as well, Tuesdays to Sundays.

Eco Hotel would like to invite everyone to join us in opening Chinampa this Halloween! We will have live acoustic performances by popular local bands Lenses, Hilera and Autotelic. For only PHP 150 entrance fee, guests will get a free beer and unlimited nachos while supplies last.

For details and reservations, please visit or contact Millie Manahan, at 0927 673 7674..
