Baguio Food Adventures (w/ A La Trinidad Crossover): A Menu Rundown
It’s an opportune time for another menus edition, what with typhoon Jolina exiting PAR in the middle of another long weekend. =D This post comes with a generous sprinkling of menus from La Trinidad restaurants since we did lots of across the border-ing the past weeks.
There I am (talking to myself mostly *heehaha) at Fiika Cafe. (I didn’t get a photo of their menu again since it’s right beside the cashier, but I’ve seen it on their Facebook page, so you might like to take a look-see there.) But before I dish out the menus from our La Trinidad food trip, I have here food lists from what we’ve recently checked off from our Baguio restaurant list.
Newly Checked Off (in Food Trip City, Baguio City)
1.) ChiQueen House of Golden Fried Chicken
Like K(anto)FC‘s at Military Cut Off but with other dishes to offer.
2.) Food Hub
While waiting for the rain to stop at Yasuragi in Baguio, we thought of passing the time … eating some more. Across the street, there’s good, simple, and cute student fare. ^^, Nyum, omu-rice and toci-bagoong rice.
3.) J’s Loft Restaurant
Expanding from La Trinidad to Baguio City, The Loft (sister resto to J’s Korean Burger and Rice Meals) now has a branch here. Seafood doria is so much closer now. \m/
4.) Mr. Ramyun
Since they moved into their own space (no longer a booth) in the building, I haven’t eaten here. We just passed by this menu because I like the kimchi kilo packs from here. At the same time, we got ourselves a green tea flavored Samanco (fish shaped) ice cream sandwich from their little Korean grocery. =)
5.) Scoops Ice Cream at Station 120
Looks like shaved ice desserts is making the rounds now. We went to usi-goosey how the opening of Station 120‘s All Day Breakfast Buffet was going and were just in time to get a buy one take one of the snow crepes. (Thankies, Romilyn!) I’m crossing my fingers, they do that promo again. *hihi
So fun watching a family of four happily eating their snow crepes then … the kids peeking at what dad got when his bowl arrived. Awww. Reminds me of being at Coney Island; same atmosphere.
6. Yasuragi Japanese Cuisine
Relocating to 2600, Yasu upped their prices a bit. No biggie really. So glad my favorite Japanese resto is closer. #happydance
7.) 8Tea9 Cafe
Not exactly a new food and drink joint. I just forgot to include this one in our old a la carte features. *hee This cafe has been in our fair city in the peak of the milk tea craze, long before it toned down, though we only got to make a visit here in February this year.
Newly Checked Off (at our friendly neighbor, La Trinidad)
Just in case you’re up for a quick eatsploratory getaway. (“,)
1.) Afar Noodle House
Major filling their guksu noodle offering that comes with an extra bowl of soup. Mainly Korean instant ramen, but I enjoyed our humongous bowl enough to feel it’s up there (in hunger satisfaction) with my favorite … a near noodle house, Noodle King. =))
2.) Ayatori Japanese Cuisine
With Yasuragi moving to our fair city, Ayatori takes over their space near the strawberry farm. (Sad though, the farm patch beside it has been bulldozed into muck. Hope they’re just improving it.)
3.) Bean’s Story Cafe
Before we went across the street to A Far Noodle House, we hung out here first. You fill up your own order slip here. So reminds me of Jollibee working days. Sip ahh, Jamaican iced tea.
4.) Love Mattet Bistro
Right across the street from Fiika Cafe. While Fiika has different sections, dining hideaways even, this restaurant has one bright spacious dining area. Made us go whoa, walking through their glass doors. I totally didn’t expect that.
We got Ryan’s pizza for take out since I couldn’t take anymore from this food packed day. (We did start out early at Quoted Cafe with a mini buffet of bread, cereals, and fruits; and a plated main with P3. Moving to Ayatori, we got a little bite of some of their Japanese dishes. Then we had cheese sticks and drinks at Fiika before ending up across the street.) Insert “I’m not a glutton” photo here. *snickers Pizza topped with prosciutto and sundried tomatoes … I sure would love to eat that again, dine in next time, to soak up the ambiance at Mattet’s.
For our parting photo for this menus rundown, it’s a collage of a couple of Cocina del Sol’s offering. They’re going to open their doors to the dining public in Baguio one of these days, but in the meantime, their smoker’s already doing the hustle. Do visit their Facebook page to see what you can order up for the weekends.
So ends our menus feature. Again, if you don’t know where these restaurants are, my foodie friends, feel free to start a convo and ask in the comments section below. (Also, please be reminded of GMRC. Me not your slave guys. =b)

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! (“,)

Isang araw apat na restaurant nalafangan BONGGAAA! Bet ko ata sa may dining hideaway ng Fiika, sang lupalop ng Trinidad ko makikita yan cafe na yan, Xine? At sino yung echoserang wititit ang GMRC at nambabalahura? Ispluk mo para sabunutan natin!!
Hello there, Mario! One time, big time, so we don’t have to come and go and come and go again. *hihi
High and mighty comments are usually anonymous so … Anyway, character becoming destiny and all that.
Fiika is located near Buyagan school. It is awesome, their garden set up there.
Thank you so much for the support! Your reading of blogposts and talking to me here is much appreciated. Enjoy, Fiika Cafe! And if you’re done there and you still have room for more foodstuff, you can just cross the street to Love Mattet for other munchables. (“,)
Where is Chiqueen located? Whose better Kanto Fried Chicken or Chiqueen?
Hello, Dan! ChiQueen House of Golden Fried Chicken is located in QM, on Everlasting Street (beside a car wash). K(anto)FC still takes the cake for me. Nice variety though at ChiQueen. Hope this helps. Happy Baguio food trips! (“,)
It’s our (munching) pleasure! (“,)
Where is Js Loft here in Baguio? Do they also have free iced tea like in La Trinidad Branch?
Hello, Shorty! J’s Loft is in the first floor of the building beside Center Mall. City Light Tower, I think that building is called. When we dined there, they had a sign that said free iced tea/coffee for August, so I’m not sure if they’re going to keep it on like in The Loft La Trinidad.
I hope you have a great time at Baguio’s (not so lofty *hihi) Loft. Thanks for visiting Find Good Baguio Foods. Happy Baguio food quest! (“,)
I never got over the milk tea craze. I still go to Zentea a lot. I never heard of 8Tea9 cafe. Where?
Hello there, Pauline B.! *hihi Good to know Zentea’s keeping on. They were sort of the first that bought milk teas to Baguio.
8Tea9 Cafe is located in Marandnest Building, near Data Center in Bonifacio (across from Notre Dame doctors only gate). I hope you enjoy your drinks there.
Thank you for dropping by. Have a great eatsploration! (“,)
Hello there, Angela Acosta! Thank you for clicking Like for this post! Happy eatsploring! (“,)
