Update on an UPDATE: Green Pepper Gourmet Stop
Stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight, Green Pepper Gourmet Stop revealed itself to be a star among the restaurants at the Ketchup Food Community and also great food establishments around the City of Pines. Reinvention (not just one but two) seems to have paid off and glad I am to have returned.
The Green Pepper Scene
- Weather proof dining.
- Comfy, cozy. ^^,
There’s more in there. =) Definitely, a nicer looking menu, oh so classy gourmet looking.
… and the bane of a pancake dish has been nixed from the selection. (Nothing to be tempted and fizzled about now, Anne. *hihi Big hugs to you! (“,))
Race and I got the fresh fruit purees. Refreshingly yummy.
I was gunning for the eggs Benedict and I was happy to see that it was still available in the reinvented Green Pepper Gourmet Stop. I could’t resist getting a bowl of soup though so here’s our BIG bowl of tomato basil (with equally big ‘croutons’ *heehaha).
Voila, Race’s garlic braised chicken. Tasty! -that’s all I can say with what Race gave me. I was concentrating on the soup and my plate by then.
Eggs Benedict for dinner. A humongous helping yet again. (Totally caught me off guard. *hee) As hungry as I was, I knew from seeing all our orders laid out on the table that I was going to be mega satisfied.
Green Pepper wasn’t as packed when Race and I came for our meal, this visit. We quickly got a table and the instant our butts touched the chairs, our attendant was there with the menus. (POOF! There she was! =b)
She asked us too if we were just in for a light snack or something heavy. Ohhh, see what she did there? She was getting the kitchen ready to provide for our needs. While we were waiting for our food, she was out and about preparing our table. Spoon, forks, knives, glasses, a jug of water, I didn’t have to ask her for anything.
When we were almost done with our meal, our attendant came back to the table and inquired about dessert. I was tempted really (Chocolate divinity? Who wouldn’t want that? =D Chef Anthony Bourdain is not included in this vote, all right? “I don’t like chocolate and cherries together. I don’t like chocolate and food together.” Ay, galit sa chocolate. =b) but every bit of real estate in my tummy was used up by the soup (not a drop was left in the bowl *snickers), the eggs Benedict and the garlic braised chicken.
I’m ready for my wheelbarrow now. Just roll me in it and take me home, please. ^^,
We’ll just come back for the dessert. On that visit, I’m having the stuffed pepper n’ eggs, the house special pasta (tuyo flakes on pasta, weee!) and … and … and …

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.)
