Barrio Fiesta … or Should We Say, Pines City Fiesta

Barrio Fiesta menu intro

The first page of the Barrio Fiesta menu … details (sort of) how you can get yourself in a festive mood. Gathering of people – check.  Laughs – check. An array of colorful and mouthwatering native delicacies … let’s see.

Barrio Fiesta 2010 visit

Our fiesta for two in 2010 with kilawing puso ng saging/banana heart ceviche, chicken bbq and potserong manok at baboy/chicken and pork stew. Me, channeling a diwata/nymph. I was a diwata ng potsero. =))

Barrio Fiesta menu

The menu. Click to enlarge. Oh, getting a photo of the set menu slipped my mind.  You’ll see why in a bit. The sets would make for a good selection too.  It had everything you could possibly want (starters, entrees of veggies, best sellers, etc.) and it’s good for 10 people. As per our male attendant, you could also get a half order of the set stuff.

Barrio Fiesta refreshments

The refreshments are served first = four seasons which was one of the best mixes I’ve tasted. \m/ Gulaman at sago that was a bit too sweet for my niece (she waited until the ice had melted enough) and tapioca that was too big for the straw. OJ and calamansi juice … nothing special there.  Just your regular OJ and calamansi juice. *hee

Barrio Fiesta dining area

The dining area at Barrio Fiesta. Now, I’m curious what it looks like upstairs at their Hot Pot place. What’s the difference between Hot Pot and Barrio Fiesta, I wonder? Hhmmm. =)

Barrio Fiesta boullabaise

Boullabaise soup that had just the right bula/bubbles. Perfect consistency with tons of diced veggies. Beautiful seafood ‘toppings’ (shrimps, crab, mussels), don’t you think? Ahhhh.

Barrio Fiesta adobo rice

Adobo rice. Oh, joy! Rice that you could eat on it’s own. ^^,

Barrio Fiesta rice

There’s another one!!! Barrio Fiesta rice. Yowzah! Says on the menu online, it was paella-like. On the physical menu, it indicated that the rice came with mixed seafood. I was thinking bits and pieces. Yey, more beautiful seafood! I had my hands full, literally, with the seafood. I just had to get every morsel from every nook and cranny of the crab and the shrimp. (“,)

Barrio Fiesta ampalaya con carne

Ampalaya con carne/bitter gourd with meat. My sister put me up to this. Bleh for me but of course, she loved it (and we let her finish the whole platter). =b

Barrio Fiesta crispy pata

Crispy pata. Nicely cooked, definitely crispy. Get it half priced when you bring your posse of four people or more. My furry friends had a fine time gnawing on the bones, too. =D

X marks Barrio Fiesta for good food in Baguio. Come and turn your meal into an instant fiesta!  You’ve got everything you need now: good company, lots of laughs and a  mouthwatering spread. 

Barrio Fiesta-goers

The fiesta-goers. *hihi

Food: 4 treasure chests NOW, my seafood craving has been satisfied.  At last! Thanks, Barrio Fiesta.

Service: 1 treasure chest Unfriendly, unaccommodating, slow moving female attendant. 2 treasure chests for our male attendant.  He definitely did a better job, but still room for improvement there.  It’s like they’re so accustomed to having the place to themselves most days that they’ve forgotten that this was their job. Another rowdy bunch, at home sa Barrio Fiesta. =S

Barrio Fiesta a strange notice

So that’s what this is for … =b

Ambiance: 3 treasure chests I might have given another treasure chest if they let us sit at the table my sister chose (by the window but apparently, that’s STRICTLY for four people).

Price: 2 treasure chests Buko in shell for P149. What the shell?! =)) I know this isn’t the city of coconut trees but whoo-weee! If I got the buko juice for drinks, I would definitely take the ‘gold shell’ home and make sure I get every bit of coconut meat in it. After, I would leave it to dry and use it as a floor polisher just to get my money’s worth. *snickers
