The young residents of uptown Taytay may have seen the growth of Mcdo and Jollibee, or perhaps experienced the ambiance of Red Ribbon and Chowking. But as for us, the original residents of Baranggay San Juan, our hearts belong to Tita Betty's Gotohan. Nothing beats her homecook meal, the savory goto and the mala-hardin ambiance. The location is quite hidden, but through a simple word-of-mouth, Tita Betty remains. So for those who would like to have a quick-stop before heading home or de-stress in the middle of the day, look for Tita Betty and she'll be glad to take you in her arms.
