The Tourist List of Must Trys (for A Baguio Flower Fest Visit)

The Baguio Panagbenga Festival has opened!  (“,)

Panagbenga 2013 schedule

Panagbenga 2013 Schedule  

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

Strawberry Taho at Lourdes Grotto

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

Cosy's Cafe and Roasterie coffee

Coffee, anyone? (“,) (Coffee quote from photo in Cosy’s Facebook page)

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.)

5.) Pinikpikan

Sagada Lunch pinikpikan (Cordilleran tinola)

Pinikpikan =D

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

Zenz Restaurant sinigang na baboy sa strawberry

Sinigang na baboy sa strawberry ^^,

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

Eve's Garden the prettiest healthiest best salad

P3 advertising the prettiest, healthiest – the BEST salad \m/

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! (“,))

      Hello there, Soc! (After a nice little walk amid the trees at John Hay, you can go out the gate from Technohub.) Before coming into Scout Barrio Barangay, Palaganas Bakery is right across the waiting shed on your right. Thank you so much for visiting the blog! Happy Baguio eatsplorations! (“,)
