My grandmother always told me to go out and experience what life has to offer. If anything new is available, go ahead and try it. If it pans out, well and good, she said; and if it doesn’t, never do it again. If anything, you’ll be wiser for what you’ve experienced. At least you know.
I took my grandma’s advice and as soon as I was working, which started pretty early, I used some of my salary to try new things. You can say that I’m my friends’ guinea pig with trying out what’s fresh. What was a way of spending time with loved ones and friends became a quest, too. I went out trying new restaurants in Baguio City as well as those that have been in business for a long time that I haven’t been to.
It took me five years more or less to go through all (if not most) of the Baguio food establishments. As a creature of habit, I kept coming back to the restaurants that I loved most, and that’s probably why I took so long.
For those staying in Baguio just for a short time, you don’t have to waste your precious (vacation) time looking for a good place to eat in Baguio, I’m here to help. For those who’ve been in the city long enough but haven’t found establishments that are worthy of being named your favorites, you might like the places I found out about. As a guinea pig with a lot of experience, let me be your guide to the gastronomic delights of Baguio City.
I’m Xine and I’ll mark out the spots where to eat in Baguio.
***Unless otherwise stated, I finance this Baguio eatsploration with my own hard earned (“big sweaty wads of …”) money.
Legend of the Treasure Chest Ratings (sounds like a movie title *harhar):
No treasure chests – the lowest rating – failed quest
The more the treasure chests collected, the more successful the quest for good Baguio food. ^^, (If you’re looking for fancy dining in the city of Baguio and price is not the issue, you can ignore the price ratings. On the other hand, if you want simple comfort food and the looks of the restaurant doesn’t matter, you can ignore the ambiance ratings – a good meal can sometimes come from the most unlikely places =D)
Hope you have a fantastic time experiencing good Baguio food with me. (“,)
