No Picnic at Camp John Hay (addendum =D)

As I was getting all the photos I have for today’s feature post, it’s been cloudy, sunny and a bit foggy.  Now, I can see a patch of blue in the sky and the sun’s shining like crazy.  Yesterday, we were at L’Ami Frenchy and we couldn’t get home because the rain was playing with us. (The jury’s still out on that Baguio food establishment  for me, my foodie friends, so the feature will come later when my experiences there finally sink in.) It let up, and when we were ready to go, it started to pour again. Gee whiz, talk about bipolar fickle. =S

Anyhoo, I already had in mind, the resto I left out in our No Picnic at Camp John Hay post. See all the ants and other crawlies scurrying away when the first few drops of the day’s rain falls … the picnic goers scrambling to pack all their foodstuff and going for shade right along with them. ^^,

There’s shelter and (more) food over at:

Carlo’s Pizza

Cannelloni and their #2 sampler (composed of spaghetti, chicken fingers, salad and fries)

From one of our oldest visits at Carlo’s’, I recall the sauced up cannelloni. That’s meat sauce and bechamel and melted mozzarella cheese in, on, around pasta for you = gooey yumyum!  Sampler 2, while giving us a taste of a handful of dishes served at the resto, didn’t make enough of an impression on me to reminisce on today.  *hee

Early dinner at Carlo’s’. =)

This lapse in memory is partly due to those dishes being “forced” on us.  As it was with the first post about picnicking in one of the establishments at the Mile Hi Center in CJH, if you get to the eating places past 8:00 p.m., there wouldn’t be much available in the kitchen.  And so, for our “refresher” [“I’m making (lots of) quotations with my claw hands.”] visit we made sure to get there for an early dinner.

Soup. Looks more like it’s seafood chowder, right, guys? *senior moment

Soup … my go to choice while I’m thinking on what to eat … and whether I should eat. =b This one is either seafood chowder or tomato pesto.  Either way, it was a soothing little bowl that filled me up a wee bit.  I’ll gladly get more of that.

Capriccioso thin ‘n crispy pizza ^^,

Because I did feel a little capricious. =D That’s one heavy topped pizza. The crust was so thin, it almost collapsed under the weight of it all.

Pork bbq spareribs =D

For the ribs man, pork barbecue spareribs.  Though, tasty enough, it was way too thin a slice. There you have it, the bacon of spareribs. *heehahaha  It did have a boney piece to it … which I don’t think would be long enough to even be useful as a shiv.

Still, X marks Carlos Pizza for good food in Baguio.  =) When there’s no picnic in the park/camp, there’s (almost) always food to be had here.

Food: 3 treasure chests

Service: 3 treasure chests Lack of choices … even before closing time.

Ambiance: 3 treasure chests

Price: 2 treasure chests The servings are too small to really give value for money.
