Here and There in the City of PINEs: Sierra Pines Hotel and Pinewoods Golf & Country Club
Welcome to the City of P-I-N-E-s!
And just in case we forget where we are, we’ll get little reminders of it as we move around Baguio … like in the names of establishments we see here and there. *tee hee
Here: Grand Sierra Pines
Hotel, residence, and conference … and, where there’s all these facilities, there will also be an eating place. Found closer to scenic spots, and at the moment, on soft opening (they have construction underway like it was at Newtown Plaza Hotel when we first tried Elements Buffet), I’d like to give you a HEADS UP, my foodie friends, that if you’re squeamish about dust and all that, you might want to give this place some time (to finish up) before dining in at their atrium restaurant. (UPDATE 09/18/2016: The name of their main inhouse resto is The Atrium, not al fresco. Funny, sir waiter)
By the looks of it, there’s still lots of work being done and it’s not only confined to the upper floors, but also near the dining area. That’s why it’s the elevator shaft and the stripety tent-like roof over it was the one that caught my attention. The tree side is covered at the moment … but no worries, if I wanted a view of the trees, I could just look up. Ahhh, green pine needles against the blue sky. =)
Sierra Pines’ al fresco resto has a simple menu for now. I assume this will change (with additions and replacements) as soon as they’re all set up.
We were, however, good with the selection they had then. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they don’t take the beef steak out of the menu in the future as I enjoyed that immensely what with its fat marbling and tastiness. Even without the sauce, this was the perfect (late) lunchage. \m/ Race’s pork sisig was equally scrumptious. So flavorful and a huge enough serving, we had to get another order of rice to go with it.
Ambiance: but as soon as they’re done with construction, no more sanding going on nearby, I’ll raise this up when I see the finished product. UPDATE 09/19/2016: With the opening of their other resto, Outlook Steak & Grill, I found myself another “old Baguio” feel hangout. UPDATE 02/14/17: Cross ordering between Atrium and their other resto is allowed so we’ll always choose a seat at Atrium and order some of our faves from Outlook. I ❤ Grand Sierra Pines

There: Pinewoods Golf and Country Club
A little more of an effort to get to (and come back to town from if you don’t have a private vehicle) but surely one worth the trip, for its seclusion and quiet [which I love so much. Watch me do that are-you-not-entertained or don’t-cry-for-me-Argentina pose (but with more oomph *snickers) in the middle of the dining area]. Having seen the golf carts go around the green like toys in a set, from the balcony of Foggy Mountain Cookhouse, we got Pinewoods Golf Club on our list as soon as Karla gave us the info that it, particularly its resto, is open to the public (golfer or not). (All golfers welcome on the course; no membership needed.) Yey!
NOTE: Please make sure you have a means for going back to civilization when you plan on making a visit here. It’s so secluded at the moment, there are no jeeps or taxis in sight. Might be a good long walk to where there are lots of people and public transpo.
Hearing from baker extraordinaire, Ms. Tina, that Kharis Bakeshop is supplying desserts there too, Race and I got even more excited to try the place out. After a little mix-up of taking a drive to the place on a Monday, I finally get to put a CHECK! notation on its name on our Baguio restaurant list today. =D (They’re open from Tuesdays through Sundays, I heard.)
The food selection at the club was not a surprise to us since it’s Beggang Resto Grill that takes care of Manduto Restaurant. A welcome taste to us, no doubt. (One of our faves.) ^^, Tempting as it was to have kare-kare, crispy sinigang, or something hot and soupy as we sat outside in the wind and some fog buildup, for lunch, I gave their burger a try. Race, on the other hand, stuck to his favorite, (dinosaur =)) ) spare ribs.
Needless to say, that was a hit. So was my burger, sturdy and didn’t get soggy with the pesto sauce, which not only came with fries but a healthful dessert of sliced banana drizzled with some choco ripple.
That wasn’t the end of lunch at Pine Woods’ Manduto resto. We did come for Kharis desserts, too. (Yes, the chocoholic’s muse at home, finito.) It’s another slice of sans rival for me.
We also gave the mini caffe mocha flavored cheesecake a taste, too. This tickled the coffee lover tastebuds in Race. He loved it even more when it was delivered to the table so dense like it came straight from the freezer (not just a chiller). I, again, relished in the little bits of sans rival sticking to my teeth. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’d like to be alone with this sticky goodness. *hihi
Food: (The desserts by Kharis are still a 10, btw. =b)
Ambiance: (Don’t forget your jackets please as it gets pretty windy/foggy/cloudy out here … especially in the afternoon.)

Hello there, indiGo! Thanks so much for visiting the blog! More power to yours! Wonderful shots! (“,)
Looks like a good place for quiet time both on the green and in the Manduto restaurant. Another great write-up for where to eat and also where to go and golf in Baguio.
Hello, lån! Thank you so much for visiting this Baguio blog again!
It sure is! It was particularly fun to watch the golf carts moving around the Pinewoods golf course from our al fresco table at Manduto while eating something Beggang and Kharis made. Surely an experience we’ll be coming back for. I hope you have as fantastic a time there as Race and I had! (“,)
Hello, cloverwanders! Thank you so much for giving this post a star! Cheers to more Clover’s Wanderings! (“,)
