All photos here were taken by Ykaie. Yep, you guessed it, I was carrying Twinkle because she fell asleep while we were looking for a place to eat. It was dinner time, two weeks ago, and we were checked in at Kasa Luntian.
The kids were tired because they went swimming the whole afternoon. Kasa Luntian doesn’t have a restaurant but Taza Mia provides room service. Still, we decided to have dinner out. Our appetites took us to Charito by Bag of Beans. We love Bag of Beans and I can’t count the number of times we ate there because we love the food. We wondered what’s different about Charito By Bag of Beans.
I noticed upon entrance that Charito’s design is a bit different than the rest. Yes, it is rustic but it’s more elegant — exuding a semi-fine dining ambience and looking at the menu confirms it.
I wanted something light so I ordered the Cream of Cannellini Beans with Truffle Soup (₱210) and I loved it. It wasn’t too creamy but the taste of truffle gives it extra oomph. The soup was served with a small pieces if buttered toast. peanutbutter♥ wanted soup as well and he tried the Soup of the Day (₱195) which was Mushroom Soup.
To go with my soup, I also ordered the Garden Fresh Salad (₱280) thinking the serving would be just right for one. It turned out to be a lot bigger, so peanutbutter♥ and I shared it. It was composed of mixed greens, tomato, carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, corn kernels, turnips, black olives, and served with balsamic vinaigrette.
Ykaie ordered the Roast Beef (₱550) which turned out to be good for three! The beef was super tender and tasty and it was served on a bed of its flavorful sauce with buttered veggies and mashed potato on the side.
peanutbutter♥‘s order was this Smoked Salmon and Mushroom Pasta (₱450) It’s a mixture of creamy and tangy, probably because it has crushed tomatoes in it. We loved it dahil hindi sya nakakasawa and it has lots of salmon pieces.
Imagine-in nyo kung paano ako kumain?? I think yan ang isa sa superpower ng mommies no? Kaya naming gumawa ng kahit na ano kahit na isang kamay lang ang gumagana at hindi kami makagalaw… LOL!
So what did we think of Charito? We loved it because the food might be a bit pricey but it’s justified by the taste and the serving size. My suggestion? Order 2-3 dishes for 4-5 people and you’re good.
Charito By Bag of Beans is located at 150 E. Aguinaldo Highway, Maharlika East, Tagaytay City.
Foods are look delicious! I think sulit na sulit naman at makatarungan bawat servings kasi madami naman. Bet ko yung salad nila. ☺
Nakakatamam naman yung roast beef and pasta nila! Mouthwatering! And infairness to you momshie kahit may karga ka nakakain kapa din.
Super relate mommy. Yan ang ganap namin kapag nasa labas, either si toddler kalong ko kapag nakatulog or naka babywear kay bunso namn while eating. Indeed we can do magic with one hand.

We tried it and I was so impressed and super natakam sa post nyong ito Mommy Peach. It was my birthday last July 3 when we headed to Tagaytay and spend the rest of the day there strolling and we even saw the Spiderman movie haha dumayo pa para manood but of course we must as in MUST try this Bag of Beans by Charito recipe. We were so amazed by the presentation and the taste notwithstanding the price of each food kasi po sulit naman talaga. We’ll come back again as soon as we have the right schedule and probably we’ll bring my daughter with us who’s also a big eater pero never syang tumaba not like me hahaha. Love it so much and thank you so much for posting your esvapade in Charito by Bag of Beans Tagaytay.
