Le Coq Floral = Delightful Baguio Staycation
Doing a double take in deja vu with the photo below?
I don’t blame you; it does look a bit like our photo at Le Coq Bleu. (In the living room, looking up at the cam, all smiles.) In fact, this sala is at the homestay … the new branch of it though, named Le Coq Floral. \m/
UPDATE 12/21/2016: Le Coq Floral, a touch of Provence in the City of Pines. See the home stay’s new look here.
Just like the blue house, the floral branch is also a home stay, When you book your accommodations in places like these, you’re in for a first hand experience living with a local family.
Getting to our room for the night, I was reminded of the place we stayed at when we were in Batanes. Like one big happy family, we all were; with the home owners and the other tourists hanging out at the living room and eating our meals together in the dining room. =)
Okay, back to our fair city. *hihi As it is with the house in Gulf View, Le Coq Floral is also located away from the hustle and bustle. There are more rooms to choose from here: The Leaf room, the Rose room, the Lavender room, the attic, and the studio. Barbecues can also be done in the wide area outside the studio. (I can see it now; with friends, family, how enjoyable that would be!) Each room is limited to two to three people and if you’re on vacation with a big group, the house can accommodate up to 13 people.
Breakfast at Le Coq Floral
The morning after, we woke up to birds singing … their lungs out, even =)) , the sun streaming through the windows, and when we opened the doors to the balcony, the room quickly filled up with cool and fresh morning air.
All rooms come with a healthful scrumptious breakfast, lovingly prepared by Chef B, so you can start your day off right … energized for touring around the City of Pines or just lazing about in this beautiful Baguio home. =b
For our breakfast, (the menu changes by the day) we nudged our tummies to wake with fresh yogurt (from the Baguio Dairy Farm) topped with strawberry coulis. When we were good and ready, whole-wheat-oats pancakes with maple syrup were also ready for the taking. Oh my, were those thick and filling. ^^,
Completing the breakfast spread were ripe mangoes, glasses of orange juice and brewed coffee. (Tea was my hot drink then. *hee)
Wait, hold on there, I’m not done yet. There’s more!
Make your reservation a week in advance and you and your foodie lovies can have lunch or dinner at the Floral homestay.
They have lots to offer such as lamb steak, moussaka, filet of fish, ragout topped on pasta, special orders like salt baked chicken, and lamb tagine with … no, that’s not rice, that’s couscous (the newest addition to the menu) and more. (“,)
Having picked what you’d like for mains, you already have three other courses together with that: Soup for starters, salad as a palate cleanser, and dessert with coffee, that you can put a dash or two (… or three) of Amaretto on as digestif. =D
While all desserts I’ve tried at the home stay have been heaven (choco bavarian pie *nomnomnom), I’m always extra giddy with excitement when Ms. C’s ice cream is the dessert of the day. She puts the ‘cream’ in ice cream, I tell you. And the flavors she experiments with, tres special (lemon, not sorbet-like; apple cinnamon, blueberry cheesecake). (This one we had after the lamb dinner was rum raisin. Didn’t I tell you? S-P-E-C-I-A-L.)
Two days of a relaxing time; just hanging around the new French home, taking photos here and there, of this or that little knickknack, playing with the dogs, and conversations with Ms. Tita C and Chef Tito B, we didn’t want to leave. (More photos around the homestay? Here, here.)

X marks Le Coq Floral for a wonderful staycation/vacation … and naturally, good food, in Baguio.
Ambiance: in comparison to what I have in mind for the full-of-character-and-personality Le Coq Bleu’s as Ms. C is still in the midst of giving this place a little bit more flare. (So many little trinkets to find in Japan surplus, ukay-ukay and antique stores, so little time. =)) )

Search for Good Baguio Food
X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
