Tam-awan: Feed the Body, Feed the Soul
Baguio is a city that’s big on art. For the number of people that live here who are blessed with a talent for the creative, there are also a handful of establishments that exhibit their inspired works, not only museum-like displays or galleries (that you surely have got in your mind now) but also, establishments that bring beautiful artwork and delicious food together. Tam-awan is such a place. When you visit this so called garden in the sky, you’ll be able to feed your body just as you could, your soul.
Feed your soul with the magnificent creations that the Baguio artists have made. (If a certain piece of art strikes you, you might even want to buy it. Give our artist’s a hand. \m/)
As for getting some sustenance while you’re in Tam-awan, feeding your body is not as hard as it seems (though there aren’t that many restaurants in the Pinsao/Long Long area – yet). There are a variety of dishes served at the Tam-awan Café.
In our most recent visit to the garden in the sky, (checking out the new artsy stuff the artists came up with. Yeah!) Race and I decided to take our brunch at Tam-awan Café. I wanted to try the dynamite appetizers, the pasta pomodoro, and the dayap iced tea. It being the off season, it really wasn’t good timing. There weren’t that many selections of dishes available. Awww. =(
Anyway, it wasn’t the end of the world. (There’s always next time, when we come back again to see the new art.) We got what was available: the beef steak, the smoked meat and cans of soda.
The smoked meat was divine. They even served it with a chili vinegar dip. \m/
The beef steak was good, too. It doesn’t compare, however, to the best kind of beef steak I’ve had. (Tita Bec’s, my best friend’s mom’s beef steak. Her version was soupy and zingy… as Myrtle would say, ‘dagat’/sea. Shout out to Myrtle and Tita Bec!) (You guys already know how I like my salty stuff. As Katherine in Under the Tuscan Sun said: “Gratitude to the saints for saving us from droughts, mad dogs, and glandular disorders.” – or in my case, I’m thankful for not having kidney problems. *hee)
We then said goodbye to our feline dining companion. (It was okay that the Tam-awan cat was sitting with us. ^^, I’m always willing to share my food with the animals…after all, we’re supposed to be their stewards.) On, we went with sightseeing in Tam-awan.
Feed your soul; feed your body at Tam-awan. X marks Tam-awan Café for good food in Baguio. (Take note, you have to time your visit right. Peak season, guys, peak season! =D Else, you’d have to settle for whatever’s available =b).
While you’re in the area, you might even want to make some room in your tummy for the soya coffee served at another artist haven; just across the street, at Arko ni Apo – Kape Diperensya…that is, if you’re lucky to come upon it open, too. *harhar

X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
