BETTY’S TARLAC (SPECIALTY NATIVE CAKE RESTAURANT)
Betty’s Tarlac is a newly opened restaurant that specializes on native cakes like duman, bibingkang kanin, cassava, maja blanca, ube, capit, gabi, tibok-tibok, sapin-sapin, motchi, puto, buchi, and kutsinta. It is located on San Roque, near BDO. The restaurant has two floors and can probably accommodate a 80-100 people.
Betty’s Tarlac is an institution in this city as it is the go to place for native cakes to take to parties. They have several stores strewn around the city and even in nearby provinces.
BETTY’S TARLAC EXPERIENCE
As you enter the premises, you can see the counter with their native cakes on display. They will ask you how many people are in your group and they directed us to the floor upstairs since the lower floor is already packed.
Betty’s Tarlac is surrounded with paneled wood and bright wall paper. The decor is very modern, country, coffee shop chic. I like the mismatched chairs and whimsical touches all over the place.
FOOD AT BETTY’S TARLAC
The items on the menu consists mostly of comfort Filipino food, some pasta, drinks and native cakes. Here is their menu.
My friend ordered the Pad Thai at PHP 150.00. The serving is quite generous. The taste was okay. It’s definitely not authentic Pad Thai but it’s probably suited to Filipino taste.
I ordered the Betty’s Roaste Bagnet cebu style at PHP 150.00. It comes with a side of salad, achara and lechon sauce. This was just okay too. I had a few pieces with the crunchy skin and that was really good but it was not consistent. The other pieces were not as crispy.
The atmosphere is really nice and the ambiance makes it a delight to talk. They have this big table for big group that can accommodate 12 people. Otherwise, seating usually are for four people.
The succulents are a nice touch to put some greens in the space.
On the second floor of Betty’s Tarlac, there’s an outdoor area – could be their smoking area with two tables at both corners with some seating. Across from it is Pose and Play studio that could be accessible from there too.
I think Betty’s Tarlac is a nice new addition to the growing restaurant scene in Tarlac City. There has been quite a restaurant boom in the past year and you could see that construction is still ongoing in different areas.
