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
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
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.
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.
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. (“,)

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.)
