RITZ Legarda: Puttin’ on the Ritz

*pant pant pant

Glad I caught up with you guys. Just in case you’ll be stuck in our fair city (not necessarily a bad thing; chill chill in the house *hihi) and you’re looking for a new place to eat at for one of the days of the looong weekend, eatsplorer Xine is here with a feature on a newly opened resto.

Theme song for this Ritz post, but, of course,  it’s Taco’s Puttin’ on the Ritz. (Fred Astaire’s can fit in too, but I like the Taco version more for its dance-dance beat. And yeah, it’s so 80s! =b)

With a quick look at their menu (which I’ll put at the end of this post), Race and I said, “oh, they’ve got lamb stew!” at the same time. It’s a consensus so we ordered it. =D

Chorizo and salted egg pizza =)

This is not the lamb stew just yet. You see, we were still suffering(?) from a pizza craving … “haunting” from a restaurant that I haven’t written about yet as a good friend asked me to keep it to ourselves for the time being so … dyan na muna kayo. *snickers

Putting on the ritz late lunch =D

This rectangular pizza pie was pretty good. Not as good as the ones we get from the resto that shall not be named but still good. Chorizo and red egg, what a combo for toppings! ^^, It’s nice to get a bite of the parts where there’s some salted egg in it. Oh, mushy grainy, salty goodness.

Lamb stew (“,)

When the lamb plate arrived at the table, I observed that the meat had some kind of pulled pork quality to it. No bones, not even big chunks of the gamy but delicious meat, Race says. =) It was, however, a fantastic dish that he savored for it had a lot of sauce, so much so that he was left with lamb strips and no more rice at the end of the meal.

Baguio Ritz Legarda Restaurant and Hotel callos 2016

Callos ^^,

Speaking of saucy, that’s what my bowl of callos was. Love, love, love … although … it did lack a tomato taste to it … watered down, if you will. And where are the garbanzos? I saw none of my favorite round lentils. No matter, I was uber happy that the few pieces of tripe meat (short haired twalya =)) ) as well as fat and skin cubes that was the dominant ingredient in the stew was soft and not rubber chewy. Also, every scrumptious spoonful left me with the feeling that my lips were being glued together (on account of the fatty chunks). That’s the callos effect for you. (“,)

The wiiide dining area. There are two tables at the balcony if you want to take in the city view on a nice day. (Note: A balcony with the correct height for a barricade. *hee) I kept looking at SM without its big top roof , squinting to see if Captain Jack Sparrow is at the tippy top. *thinking about the meme

      Hello there, Zara! I was thinking about taking this week as a vacay from posting but I remembered a long weekend is coming up, thus, this Ritz Legarda restaurant feature.

      I hope you have a great time at Ritz whenever you choose to go! Thanks for visiting Find Good Baguio Foods! (“,)

  2. Shorty says :

    You posted about RITZ. I was about to message you to please check them out.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Shorty! Have you tried Ritz Legarda recently? How was your experience? Ritz got on my radar a month ago but I just remembered to put it in our Baguio restaurant list yesterday. Today, it’s eatsplored! *hihi Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment! Happy Baguio food trails! (“,)

    Kinabog nanaman ako sa comment. kalowka. Ang luwang ng dining area ng Ritz Legada, pwede rumampa. hehehe

    • XiNE says :

      *hihi It seems weather weather for being first in the comments.

      Oh, yeah, from the entrance to the back where you can see Cafe Will from the balcony, that’s how long and wide the floor space is for Ritz Legarda’s dining area. There’s even like a sunroom looking part extending out to the parking space in front of the hotel.

      I hope you have a great experience at Ritz if you go here for one of your meals in the long weekend or on another day! Thanks muchie for the support, Mario! (“,)
