Gasats by Minan & Joy is probably the winner among the other cafe’s in La Trinidad in terms of ambiance and location. It is perfectly situated away from the busy center on Longlong’s mountain top so you can get a scenic view of the valley while dining.
I love the atmosphere of this place; serene, cozy and immaculate. The details are just right, not crowded so you can focus on the beauty of nature surrounding the café.
Upon entering, you will be welcomed with greeneries in their patio landscape. One of the highlights of this place is the overlooking view of the valley. You can glimpse a large portion of La Trinidad from where you are eating or you can go to their veranda for a closer look. It becomes even more romantic at night. Dine while viewing the lights of the valley and feeling the mountain breeze.
You can opt to dine inside or on their veranda. The place is spacious with modern architecture. I love the pin lights and geometric ceiling; it looks classy and romantic.
I still haven’t tried plenty since I only went there once. But I’m satisfied with the first batch of treats I checked out. We had Schramme (white pasta), Tsanum Fauna (grilled salmon), strawberry pie and red velvet cake. I love the grilled salmon, it is scrumptious and juicy. The white pasta is fine; I love the sauce, but the pasta isn’t that great. I am not sure if it’s the quality of the pasta or the way it was cooked. Their desserts are delightful too. I have yet to try their best-selling grilled pork belly.
Prices and Service
Most of the items range from 100-200 pesos. The prices are not bad for great food and great place. The staff is welcoming and the service is wonderful.
Gasat’s Resto Café is located at Longlong, Puguis, La Trinidad., around 5 minutes’ walk from Puguis Elementary School.
