Star Cafe: A Tribute Photoblog Post

Star Cafe Baguio 2014 menu cover

So many food establishments closing in the City of Pines this year. =( First there was Bliss Cafe, then Session Delights and McDonald’s Session, and then PNKY.  (We didn’t even get to goodbye dine there. *sniff)

(For McDo, that’s only for a little while, afoodionados; thank heavens. It’s goodbye FOR NOW while their new building, right beside the old branch is being put up.)

And so we’re here, taking the opportunity to bid one of Baguio’s greatest hits for good food, goodbye.

I’m not good with parting words *sob sob sob  and so I will leave this as a photo tribute to the restaurant that’s served Baguio and its visitors for so many years (famous since 1940 \m/).  So long, Star Cafe! You’ll forever be in our memories … and a star at that. =D

A couple Star Cafe dishes. ^^, *click for a larger view

That’s shanghai rice, pork with bamboo shoot (the thickest slices of it we’ve ever seen *hihi), oyster sauce with fresh (button) mushrooms, pancit canton with 8 ingredients (That day, there were no crabsticks so we’ll cut that down to 7 ingredients =b) and pineapple pudding in the collage up there.

Last meal at Star Cafe Baguio 2014

‘Damascus mourners’ gnashing their teeth and the restaurant’s food. =))  The weeping comes later, I guess. 

We all went walking down memory lane too; talking about our grandma; how we, as kids, got through veggie (the then icky, icky) meals, and many other great family stories.  Theme song for this phase: timpintin-pintin ♫♪

Still for ever, fare thee well.

    No doubt that I will miss Star Cafe! Had many childhood, teenhood & adulthood memories of meals taken there with my family. From the entrees to the breads… =(
