How the Cookie Crumbles…

While some restaurants make the cut and have lived to serve Baguio residents and visitors, there are others that don’t.  This is a list of the eating places in Baguio that have closed, are as good as closed and places that I’ve seen on lists of places to eat in the city but have a questionable existence.

Closed:

  1. Jade Restaurant
  2. Pizza Riccio – replaced with another eatery (will come in for a closer look soon *hihi)
  3. Bam Benny – maybe they relocated somewhere, I would still have to find that out.  They used to serve deep dish pizza here.  Aw, and I didn’t even get to relish in their offer for Eat All You can Pizza and Pasta =( Bam Benny, come back!!! UPDATE 01/06/2013: It has been confirmed, Bam Benny is back! UPDATE  01/2014: They’re gone again.  *sniff
Bam Benny Deep Dish Pizza and my furry friends, wide eyed in the anticipation of getting a piece of it.

  1. A&W
  2. Wendy’s
  3. Kenny Roger’s Roasters
  4. Muang Thai Restaurant – this resto was maybe too early for its time.  These days, there are a number of Thai restaurants and places that offer Thai cuisine and they’re thriving.
  5. The Flying Gecko – wah, I miss their tomato-ey spaghetti  (Secondo: The spaghetti comes wiz-out meatballs.  Customer: There are no meatballs with the spaghetti?  Secondo: No, sometimes spaghetti likes to be alone.) *snickers =)) – replaced with Point and Grill
  6. Holz Hauz
  7. Honey in the Rock – Chinabank now
  8. Paliz’Zata – we still miss you. =( – replaced by Hebrews Bookstore and Cafe
  9. Gobi (eat all you can Mongolian) – we miss you, too.
  10. Tomay Farms (think Eve’s Garden style)

 As good as closed:

  1. Concorde Hotel Restaurants – way past its glory days?  Will they be able to get out of the shadows of the past?  Only time will tell.
    • Denise Café
    • Kingswood Court
    • Hanasusi Japanese Bar Shabushabu
  2. Kape Diperensya – I never ever saw this place open.  And I so wanted to try their soya coffee.  *sniff sniff

 Questionable Existence

I found these restaurants from a list online about where to eat in Baguio but I haven’t really seen them. Hhhhmmm, do they really exist?

  1. Atenara House Restaurant – yooo-hoo, where are you, Atenara?
  2. Outback Steakhouse– this is not in Baguio City.  (Cue the real Joe Black’s look when Death finally gave him his body – and his life back. Universal’s Meet Joe Black 1998)

Meet Joe Black movie still

Theme song for these restaurants:  Yes!  We Have No Bananas.  (You should see Audrey Hepburn singing this song in the movie Sabrina, oh so cute. (“,))

excerpt of the lyrics:

“Yes! We have no bananas.
We have no bananas today!
We’ve string beans and onions, cabbages and scallions
And all kinds of fruit and say
We have an old fashioned tomato
A Long Island potato…”

…and apparently, no string beans or onions, cabbages or scallions, or pizza or soya coffee or pad Thai or watercress salad…
