UPDATE: Chaya Restaurant
Back to Chaya! V!
If you haven’t eaten here before, my fellow foodies, I’m hoping this update post will turn your cravings for Japanese cuisine on. (“,)
Since my first post about this great Japanese restaurant in Baguio was a pretty lengthy one, I’m going to leave the coverage of our return visit as a photo blog. To start things off, the Chaya menu. =D
Just like clockwork, once you place your orders, you’re going to get a couple saucer-rettes of appetizers.
For drinks, we went green with glasses of green mango shake and green tea shake. They were just the way we remembered them, REEEfreshing.
Of course, I wouldn’t let a Chaya visit pass without getting a plate (or maybe two) of kani salad. *swoon swoon My tastebuds began singing a la Peaches and Herb. ♪ ♫ Reunited and it feels so good … ♪ ♫
For our entrees, we decided to go with something different. It was tofu hot pot for me (okay, mine’s not totally different. *hihi I do like taho-like consistency tofu served with anything other than sweet syrup and tapioca) and pork rib curry for Race. =)
I used every drop of that sauce (in the bottle that looked like it was meant for laboratory use. Apparently,Breaking Bad has been imprinted in my brain with the marathon watching I did. *hee “Cooking utensils”). Without the sauce, my soup tasted like water. That must be how it is, season to taste. But I did enjoy all the veggies in my little pot … especially the tofu. \m/
The salad is described on the menu as sprinkled fruits over greens with fruity dressing. That’s a wide variety of fruits for yah. It’s got slices of grapes, strawberries, and oranges, and blueberries and passion fruit/masaflora. Mmm! As for the curry itself, the meat was delicious and tender. The sauce it was drowning in could go for four more bowls of extra rice. =b
Let me explain that photo with more photos. ^^,
What’s lunch at Chaya without dessert of green tea ice cream?
If you ever want more of this ice cream, they have more for sale at P80; not sure if that’s a cup or a pint more though. (For 1.5L cans, we can always rely on Arce Dairy to keep us satiated.)
With all the food from this joint, it’s still easy peasy (authentic) Japanesey!

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! (“,)
