The Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant: Hi-O the Derry-O for Cordilleran Fare

(Certainly for eatsploring on a nicer day, my foodie friends. ^^, I hope everyone’s doing a-okay.)

For today’s feature, we’ll just be walking a few steps away from the eatery we had on the spotlight last week. =)

2015-10-13 Baguio Farmer's Daughter Restaurant (1)

It’s true, this resto has gotten on my radar on our return-to-civilization ride after finally checking Master’s Garden off our list in June but we only made a visit here now because, yes, I am the forgetful sort. *heehaha

The counter, the menu and me. *hihi

Right where the road after Tam-Awan and Arko ni Apo curves, we come to the charmingly rustic eating place, The Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant, that serves a small array of scrumptious Cordilleran foodstuff. \m/

Pak-pako/fern salad (“,)

Taking most of the ordering reins, Race picked this and that aapag/meaty dish from the menu. ( ♫ Race picks the pork ♪ *hihi) I, meanwhile scanned the shenengsheng/veggie selection. I was about to settle on a tongsoy/watercress salad when our attendant mentioned pak-pako. I haven’t had fern salad since our trip to Batanes; we had to have that. (Fern yummies, here? I have to get out more. =b)

Dinakdakan

Oh, dinakdakan. Appetizing, creamy with a little crunch here and there dinakdakan: Check, check, check! =))

Pinikpikan/chicken stew =)

And what self respecting highland meal would this be without pinikpikan? Served in a bao, I welcomed its savory broth after trying a chili hot alamang dip (buro almost) served with our viands. With the tender deboned chicken chunks  in the stew, I thought for a split second it wasn’t chicken but pork. There were small pieces of that though … pieces of etag. *nomnomnom

Xine and family dining at Baguio Farmer's Daughter Restaurant (4)

Hi-o the derry-o for Cordilleran dishes!

If ever we couldn’t get enough of the bits of smoked meat, we fell back on kinuday. Whoa, the flavor on those slices. Let me at ’em, more red/brown rice please.

Kinuday/smoked pork meat.

Then there’s pinuneg which is an Ibaloi version blood sausage. As tasty as this already was, it got even better with a dip or a drizzle of the chili alamang with soy and squeeze of calamansi. My niece, who enjoyed her first pako experience a lot said, a spoonful of the salad with the sausage and dip was transcendental.

Thinking the protein dishes outnumbered the vegetable ones, we got pising tan kinuday as an afterthought. =D  Like laing without the coconut milk, this balanced the lunch out perfectly.

Pising tan kinuday/boiled taro stalks and leaves with smoked meat bits.

For dessert, we had paytoy which is like ube halaya but in this case, gabi is used. Ta-daaa, taro halaya! It was great that the whole of the tubers were not pounded and grated into oblivion. Because of that, the bits felt more like the corn in binatog, a nice popping sensation in each teaspoonful.
