Fork n’ Dagger: Tools of the Foodie Trade

We nailed it now.

Funny story. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a tarp in our neighborhood advertising Fork n’ Dagger will be opening soon. It got me wondering where its location would be as there wasn’t really anything happening around where that ad was. ^^,

Just when I became utterly utterly curious, I saw activity on my newsfeed from our fellow eatsplorer, Aya, showing interest for the soft opening of said restaurant. A few minutes later, she sent me a message telling me about it. (Thankies for the info, Aya!) I just noted the event day was a Sunday, so I delayed publishing the third edition of our menu rundown feature thinking we could check that out and include their food list. =)

When we got to the old location of Tangay Tangay Restaurant (which is where Fork and Dagger is … obviously *heehaha … half *sniffy sniffs because Tangaytangay was replaced), however, there was still cement works going on in the front. The lady Race inquired from, told us their opening was Sunday … next week. *blushies Sorry naman, excited lang. =b

*sip ahh

So a week has passed and we’re here again. Balloons on the posts, clear entrance/driveway; they have surely opened to Baguio’s dining public. (“,) We took a seat at their main dining nearest the kitchen window where the orders come out.

Having placed our orders, one of the attendants gave us glasses of iced tea. On the house for the first day of operations, he said. Thanks, you guys! In a few minutes, my beef stroganof arrived at the table. (Yep, stroganoff has my number and always calls to me. =)) )

The two dining sections at Fork and Dagger Restaurant

I took a fettuccine and ate it before I tossed the pasta in with the saucy beef strips. Ohh, fun; al dente and perfectly seasoned. I could eat the pasta alone. It was like a light aglio olio … light aglio, more olio. =D With everything mixed together, the salty zingy flavor the Espagnole sauce had was toned down. I was also glad for the little bursts of freshness that the alfalfa side dish/garnish offered to this tender beef and pasta dish.

Baguio Fork n' Dagger Restaurant pork and dagger ribs 2017

Pork and dagger ribs ^^,

Race’s pork and dagger ribs was a sight to behold with its huge chunk of pork. Nice and smoky, he said. Good and tender, too, but he thought it needed a little more spice, considering it did say 10 spices on the description, so he started looking around if there’s Worcestershire sauce … somewhere. Seeing no condiments, we kept munching along. \m/ I especially enjoyed the side salad in his plate which was made up of pickled turnip and carrot sticks.

Baguio Fork n' Dagger Restaurant extra mashed potatoes 2017

Extra mashed potatoes =D

Somehow, I twirled and I twirled pasta around my fork and I was left with only strips of beef, bell pepper and onions in sauce. Race finished his rice and he still had some pork to finish off. We got an extra order of mashed potatoes to help us clean off every bit of ‘ulam‘ on my plate. Interesting, the mashed potato sort of took on a cheesy taste with the beef stroganoff. NYUM!

    Matapos ang post ng mga menu ng bagong paglalafangan may feature naman bago ulit. Fork n’ Dagger parang cloak and dagger. Bet ko yun shirt mo ha.
    Mukha nga masarap yung fettuccine. Pak vibrant color itey

      Hello, Mario! We see something new everyday so really, natatabunan feeling. =b

      I was thinking the same thing. Asked why Fork ‘n Dagger though, it’s just because they’re going to have a lot of meaty slabs to offer so we’re all going to need a fork and knife for carving the meat. The pasta was well made and well seasoned.

      *heehaha My niece got me that shirt. Love reading “I don’t care who dies in a movie, as long as the dog lives” over and over. =b

      First to comment! Thank you for the support! Enjoy, Fork and Dagger! (“,)

    The Tangay Tangay Eatery is gone? 😦 It’s good Fork n Daggers seems like a good restaurant.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Stellah! I was a little crestfallen when we arrived at Nevada Square and they directed us to where Tangay Tangay was. But yes, we’ll take solace in the idea that it was replaced by a good resto in Fork and Dagger.

      Servings were pretty big. Some of our foodie friends were raving about the plate sizes and portions they got. We did enjoy our food so.

      I hope you also enjoy Fork n’ Dagger when you check it off your list! Thanks for visiting Find Good Baguio Foods! (“,)

    We went to fork n’ dagger restaurant today. Sarado sila. T T

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there. Aww, bad timing. Fork n Dagger posted on their page that they’d be closed. Needed a breather from the opening hustle, I think.

      They’re open today if you’d like to give them another shot. I hope you enjoy your meal! Thanks for visiting this food blog! (“,)
