I’ve been to Tanay, Rizal several times now. We often go to Regina Rica then head to Paseo Rizal or Cafe Katerina for lunch. 🙂
I’ve read about the place and wanted to try it out so I asked my friends if they have plans that day and if none, if we can go for a quick road trip and grab some lunch and unexpectedly they agreed.
Lutong Pugon is located at Masalat Road, Sitio Masanting. It’s a 2 hours drive from Rizal. The place can easily be mapped by waze or google map. We took the Masinag – Cogeo – Tanay route and we arrived at exactly 2:30.
There is parking space outside the place, but only for limited vehicles. I think it’s a good thing that we arrived after lunch since we almost had the place to ourselves.
It’s pay as you order and we waited for 30 minutes until our orders got served (Believe me! It’s worth the wait!) So while waiting, they have this mini art gallery that you can check out, you can also take photos of the place, they also have this portrait sketching for 200php and also you can just simply enjoy the view while waiting.
We got 1 large pizza, half Beef Pastrani and half Prosciutto, we got 2 flavors in one pizza. We also ordered one large Margherita and an additional Garden Salad.
The prices were reasonable and the pizza and salad seriously tastes good! ❤ We paid 1,200 for everything and since there’s 4 of us we paid 300php each. Suggested budget would be depending on how much you would be and of course on which will you be ordering.
Overall, everything in this place is a feast. Food, nature and people. Their artisan pizza cooked in a wood fire oven is delicious. It’s worth the travel and money that you’ll be paying for gas and of course for the food. All staffs our friendly too. It’s quite unusual to see a pizzeria in the mountains that would serve pizza this good. It’s definitely a must try. 😉

Via Private Vehicle: We went there via private vehicle. I haven’t been to Tanay via commute since honestly, I don’t know how to. Waze & Google Maps would be a big help if you’ll visit the place and its 2 hours from Rizal. See screen shot below.
