Hill Station: Take Refuge in Good Food
Baguio City, for its cool climate, is a refuge for many in the hotter months of the year. This is the very essence of what a hill station is and now, with Casa Vallejo being reopened (I used to fantasize seeing what it looks like inside this place as a child =D), Baguio residents as well as visitors to the city have a place to take refuge in that serves good food.
Regardless if it’s hot out or if it’s chilly (like it is today, with tropical depression, Quinta moving across the Philippines *shyeew Stay safe and warm, foodie friends!), you can take comfort and delight in the scrumptious eats offered at the Hill Station (Casa Vallejo’s in house restaurant).
Serving anywhere from tapas, house favorites and desserts and also, special breakfasts, any time is a good time to fill your tummy up with Hill Station food. The hotel/restaurant is located in a prime spot of the city which makes it so accessible to people looking for a mealtime treat. (Good thing, because I’m always craving for their New York cheesecake =b …or any of their desserts for that matter *hihi)
If you’re not in the mood for cake, here are your other options: the choco-lemon tart and a scoop of homemade ice cream (for when you’re taking refuge from the heat, too at Hill Station). At this particular visit, I was gunning for their avocado ice cream with chilies (I think that was it *senior moment =))) but I guess they phased that out now. Their other flavors are vanilla cinnamon, dark chocolate with cayenne (interesting), and mango rum (even more innnnnteresting *hihi).
Walking into Hill Station, the dining area view never ceases to amaze me. (Eeeiii, big wide windows! \m/)
X marks Hill Station for good food in Baguio. If refuge is what you’re looking for, the place to be is at Hill Station. It’s a beautiful place with wonderful people who serve delicious food.
For the holiday season, Hill Station also has holiday treats to offer like these cans of cookies. Perfect for gifts (like when you go a-visiting to ninong or ninang’s house =b). Or it can be just some of the goodies you can munch on at home.
You might want to join the Hill Station Countdown to New Year and their New Year’s Eve Buffet, too. (“,) For details, click here.

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.)
