An Enjoyable and Leisurely Food Trip at High Point Restaurant

Baguio has become a very saturated city. It’s more so during the holidays and festival season like the Panagbenga.  It’s a hard fact to swallow, but what can we do?  There really are so many people in the world today. *shyeew.

Dine in peace. =)

It’s at times like these, I put myself on house arrest but if I really have to go out (to get real food … because I don’t cook =b), the best bets are restos in the outskirts or places tourists wouldn’t normally go to.  That means food establishments like Cafe de Angelo, Eve’s Garden; carinderias (however, I couldn’t really guarantee that there wouldn’t be locals hanging around there *hihi), and restos with roomy dining areas like La Comida de Antonio Ristorante (even if there’s a legion there, you wouldn’t feel it much). There’s still a whole lot of choices, right? \m/

Finding the perfect place to eat at when it seems like everybody’s in the city  (and picking the boutique inn and resto) brings to mind, what Alexander Van Halen said.  “Everybody has a high point and a lot goes into that: Timing, situation and general consciousness.” =)

Timing

Even if I’ve got my eye on a restaurant; in this case, one in the edge of the city, we go out for the meal an hour after.  For this lunch, we went out at 1 p.m.

Landscaping offering up a Zen feeling, if you’ll take it. ^^,

What happened to Race and me en route  to High Point Restaurant was that we got stuck in Teachers Camp/Botanical Garden.  With carsssss stalled bumper to bumper, some motorcycle riders carried their rides to the sidewalk so they can breeze through the traffic jam.  Ah, how I envied them! Reaching South Drive, there was still a long line of vehicles (all bound for CJH), with its inhabitants looking sour faced since they were super famished and super far away from getting satisfaction.

Situation

We’ve established that. =D

The greenhouse hall, the “al fresco” dining area and everything else in front of the boutique inn. See Race there, lounging comfortably.

General Consciousness

When we got to the inn and restaurant, I was so thrilled that we had the place almost to ourselves. We leisurely perused the menu (and changed our choices accordingly – coming late for a meal has its downsides *hee), basked in the sun (it was freezing then) and admired the scene at the inn as we waited for our orders.

Cream of spinach soup (“,)

Naturally, the soup was served first.  Thick oh so green spinach-y, it’s a bowl that I could have hogged to myself … with an extra little sprinkling of salt, or maybe a pass or two of cheese on the grater. ^^,

High Point Restaurant Baguio chicken breast steak

Chicken breast steak =D

Race’s meal was that of the grilled chicken breast topped with herb cheese sauce. After waiting for an hour for lunch, you can be sure my better half, munched on this heartily.  Tender chicken pieces seasoned by the sauce, crunchy buttered veggies and mashed potatoes, what more could we ask for?

Probably a few more scoops of mashed potatoes. =)) This one was topped with a cheesy sauce that made it even more lipsmacking good!

High Point Restaurant Baguio barbeque spareribs

Barbeque spareribs . mmm, saucy

It was my turn to make a meal of ribs. Grilled and braised in homemade barbeque sauce, served with pickled vegetables and steamed rice, I couldn’t possibly order up anything else. (The pizza bars and the pasta sounded really good. I guess that’s for next visit when the City of Pines is filled with a jilion people again … unless everybody decides to visit this place at the same exact time. (“,) Also, I ate most of Race’s extra mashed potatoes.)

X marks High Point Restaurant for good food … as well as a getaway within a getaway in the summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio.  It sure was a high point for me to dine here; ahhh, sweet serenity.
