How Things Changed in a Year …

Okay, a ton of things have changed in the city’s dining scene since I started this Baguio food blog *hihi, but I’ll just be featuring the most recent ones I noticed for this post. ^^, Ready for the ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?

1.) Forest Lodge

Used to be The Suites (the hotel/accommodation that stood in the shadow of The Manor and maybe one reason why it sounded so unreachable before was because it was exclusive to shareholders/tenants).  Oh yes, it’s fair game now. *heehaha  Le Twist (its inhouse resto), we’ll be having a food adventure in your dining area soon!  Weee!

Forest Lodge 19th Tee Baguio Back to the 80s anniversary party

A few of the goings on at the lodge’s anniversary party.
Theme: Back to the 80’s.
They called in the DJs from the old Spirits Discotheque to get the people pumping and grinding on the dance floor – which turns out to be the new 19th T(ee). (I used to have an ice cream scooping stint in the old 19th Tee, not really in the 80s =b but boy did that get me reminiscin’. Missing Myrtle and Biang now.) Cue Life Dance! Yeh!
Before the party officially started at 8:00 p.m., Forest Lodge served Le Chef made little munchies and cocktails (which Race and I missed the better and more scrumptious selections part of due to the weather, dang!) But Race, their highnesses, their friends (It was nice to meet you Kariza, Nikki and hubby. (“,)) and I got to top ourselves off with pulutan/finger foods once the party got hopping. *nomnomnom pulutan. =))
Note the photo on the second row, second column (beside the plate of tuna kilawen photo): The elders showing the youngins how it’s done. \m/

2.) Wellbeing Ssambap Korean Restaurant 

Dugout Sports Bar struck out it seems and has been replaced with a(nother) Korean Restaurant. =D

The third best place (for Race and me) to get samgyeopsal. Blog post featuring this, click here. (“,)

3.) Ahmad Brothers Cafe

It’s still the same Ahmad Brothers but their establishment has expanded on the inside (imploded? =b). It’s not that small a store anymore. It follows then that their seats and tables aren’t all in front of the food establishment.  Have a seat inside, away from mall passersby.  Enjoy your lassi, samosa with the best cilantro dip (Oh my, I love that dip!) and your garbanzo masala.  (Just so you know, it’s the one Ahmad brother who’s the master chef in the place.  If you time your visit when he’s “on duty”, you’re bound to get any dish you want on the menu.)

5.) Cosy’s Cafe and Roasterie

There’s always something new to tickle your taste buds and fill your tummy with at Cosy’s.  On our most recent visit, they’ve got drink stuff like Sodastream, food stuff like comfortingly delicious mami and more. (Yes, you know it, I’m so excited for when they start decorating the Christmas house again, I’m about the burst *giggles)

Cosy's Cafe and Roasterie new offering

Looks like our future’s all set, my foodie friends … with a looong table laden with gastronomic delights to try.  Let’s go, Baguio eatsplorers, chomp away!  Discover, experience, live! \m/
