Baguio Greatest Hits for Good Food

These restaurants need no introduction (or any other commentary …err, maybe just a little.  I might still have some information bits to dish out. *harhar)

1.) Tea House

As soon as I take a seat in this establishment, I don’t have to peruse the menu.  I know what I want. *hee  But I’m sure Tea House makes other delicious eats that can be other people’s go to Tea House dishes.  As you can see in the photo above, at the spot by the counter, a lot of people hang out waiting for their take out orders. =D

Tea House spaghetti

Spaghetti … one of the best in Baguio. Ohh, now, me wants to buy some. Or maybe you can cook some up, my dear sister? (When I say some, I mean lots and lots *snickers) (“,)

Tea House fried chicken

Tea House fried chicken (as a combo with spaghetti) … good enough but as long as I have their spaghetti, I’ll survive… happily. =b

Let’s not forget about dessert! (“,)

2.) Sunshine Lunch

After doing a little grocery shopping at U-Need (or ukayukay?), Sunshine Lunch is a great place to get some grub. ^^,

Sunshine Lunch menu

The Sunshine Lunch menu *click to enlarge photo …See that, over in the first photo? ‘Merienda for all seasons’. When my brother’s shadow darkens the Sunshine Lunch doorway, one of the staff (any one of them) says, “siopao?” Oh, yeah, they know what he’s there for. =))

Just like it is with Tea House, I know what I want to get from here.  (Chinese dining at its simple best. \m/)

Sunshine Lunch pancit

Sunshine Lunch pancit. It’s a panciteria after all. *hihi

Sunshine Lunch siopao (asado and bola-bola)

Sunshine Lunch siopao. So love the egg that’s mixed in with the meats inside the bun. Used to be, it was a bigger piece like half a boiled egg was put in there, but anyway. =D Curse you, inflation!!!

I have to mention that the service at this place is phenomenal!  The attendants know exactly what they’re doing.

1. Seat guests and hand them the menu,

2. Take customer’s orders and repeat it back to them (In this case, our attendant MEMORIZED our orders. Weee!),

3. Bring eating utensils and drinks to the customer’s table,

4. Bring the orders to the table.

It doesn’t end there.

There’s #5 – Be prepared to provide for any of the customer’s needs.  It’s as simple has having something like a strong peripheral vision. To avoid comments like this: “The guy died, which is apparently what you had to do at that place to get the waiter’s attention.” =))

Our attendant on this day seemed to have eyes at the back of her head.  She was ready to go down the stairs and when we needed something, she stops and turns back around just to check if we really did need something.  (Whoa, I don’t want her to be my teacher …if I ever go back to school.  I do like to talk to my seatmates. *blush blush)  Or maybe she was psychic?  Innnteresting.

5 treasure chests 5 treasure chests for our attendant! Love and Devotion (“,)

UPDATE 05/01/2013: It’s a sad day for Baguio people for Sunshine Lunch has officially closed. Oh, the best siopao *sob sob sob. Thank you so much for the years of good food, Sunshine Lunch! See you in a new location in the city, we hope. We miss you already. =(

Yes, the ambiance might not be super fab for these restaurants but with great food like this, who could care about the ambiance?  (Tea House was already renovated and their restaurant looks better.  You can always get food for take out if you want a different venue for your meal. =b)

X marks Tea House and Sunshine Lunch for good food in Baguio.  But you already knew that… they’re Baguio’s greatest hits for restaurants.

(These restaurants and their offering can be added to our list of must trys (for tourists), too.)

***Apologies to my followers/readers/fellow food questers:  You might have noticed the watermark on my photos has grown in size. I didn’t want to do that…thought it interfered with the  cause-you-to-salivate look of the food in the photos.  But there’s a sottocopier of blogs (who copied everything from the blogs of Certified Foodies, Frannywanny, YedyLicious and The Tummy Traveler). *huhu.  Why you gotta be like that plagiarizer? Whatever’s going on in your mind, just write about it.  It would then be in your own words and it would be something you could definitely be proud of.

    Hello, lesleycarter! Thank you, thank you very much! 100 likes because of you! I really appreciate it! Meanwhile, I’m also cheering you on for the BBB Competition. Lesley Carter for the BBB win! (“,) Have a nice day!

    Aww… I didn’t know he/she copied from our blog too. Will check it out later.

    But yeah, saw the post from the Tummy Traveler. Tsk tsk. Why bother put up a ‘personal’ blog if you can’t write in your own words, right?

      Hello there, Certified Foodies (Mhel and Ken)! I read Facebook posts from The Pickiest Eater and Ms. Ane (oafallarme.com) about the incident(s) that served as a heads up for me.

      Shyeew, it really is saddening … he/she might need a dictionary to learn about the definition of ‘personal’.

      Thank you for your comment! A blessed Sunday to you! (“,)
