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

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.

Search for Good Baguio Food
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.)
