The Tourist List of Must Trys (for A Baguio Flower Fest Visit)
The Baguio Panagbenga Festival has opened! (“,)
If you’ve come a-visiting to the city for the first time, here’s a list of food (and drink) you might want to try. The mini Baguio food quest is on for you! Yey! Happy eating, my foodie friends! (“,)
(On the other hand, if you’ve been here before, you might want to try the other foodstuff that Baguio City has to offer. However, there’s no harm in going through the list again, especially if you liked these so much the first time. ^^,)
1.) Strawberry Taho
Get these from the taho vendors walking around the major tourist spots in the city.
2.) Good Shepherd Ube Jam – ’nuff said *hihi
3.) Benguet Coffee
Contrary to what we might think, we’ve got delicious coffee grown locally. These cups of aromatic, get-your-heart-pumping coffee are available at Cosy’s Cafe and Roasterie and Kape Umali. Come on, let’s give our local farmers/coffee growers a hand.
4.) Raisin Bread (how about a multigrain one?) – from Baguio Country Club or Villa Cordillera
They also have some just as good at Palaganas Bakery (among many other baked goodies and treats *nomnomnom). Some will even testify that the (flat-ish) rolls of raisin bread from this bakery, one of Baguio’s best kept secrets, taste better than the ones from BCC. You be the judge. =D (As an added bonus, they’re cheaper here, too. P100, weee! BCC’s is P150.)
Try the Cordilleran version of tinola. (‘Killing me softly‘ chicken is used, NOT dressed chicken.) Pinikpikan with etag is served at Cafe by the Ruins.
How about mingling with the locals while eating this dish? To Sagada Lunch! =)
UPDATE 02-12-2013: Pinikpikan (native chicken) with etag is Ki’kan‘s (Ayuyang reinvented) specialty of the house. Find them at Baden Powell Hotel. \m/
6.) Strawberry Sinigang
It’s hard to escape strawberries when you’re in Baguio/La Trinidad. Might as well have it for lunch or dinner – in your sinigang. *hee This is Zenz Restaurant‘s signature dish.
7.) Greens – like the prettiest, healthiest – the BEST Salad from Eve’s Garden
Roll the nuts, raisins, carrots sticks and turnip sticks AND flowers in any of the 14 kinds of lettuce and dip this in the organic flax oil, sunflower oil and olive oil with seven fresh garden herbs dressing. Ohh, don’t you feel healthy already? (“,)
NOTE: You need to make a reservation at Eve’s Garden. Call a week in advance to be safe. (contact details here.)
If you can’t make it to an Eve’s Garden experience for some reason or another, just stock up on fresh produce (yes, strawberries, too =b) from the Baguio City Market. With that, you’re covered for fresh greens (veggies and fruits) packed with vitamins and minerals. *harhar
Hope you enjoy your stay while you’re in Baguio City! If you’re going on a Baguio food quest, even with a mini list like this, I wish you a great experience with all the places you visit! (May all the Baguio restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,))

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.)
