Baguio Eatsploring Update – A Fully Loaded Post
Ahoy, me hearties! Arr!
I didn’t realize I didn’t get to post anything during what felt like 40 days and 40 nights of rain in our fair city. While the gray skies day in and day out put me in such a lethargic mood the whole time, I was also half thinking if we should do a Noah and get moving with the ark construction. =))
Anyway, looks like we made it through the rain. (That’s a song, isn’t it?) (Ahh, it’s two songs actually. I just Uncle Google MG-ed it. Both from Barry Manilow. What’s his deal about making it through? Here we go with shower thoughts. *hihi)
Let’s just do a quick eatsploring update of the stuff we’ve been up to (Baked Treats, Good Eats by Delivery Baguio, Baguio Eatscursions: A Menu Guide, and Foodievents) so I could rest easy that I’ve got you up to speed on all things that have to do with munching and crunching in Baguio City, food trip city.
Online treats store: Le Cheri pavlovas
Nothing like rain, rain and more rain to make us want to eat, eat and eat some more. So we ordered some pavlova from Le Cheri. P180 for box of six meringue beauties topped with fruits of the season.
For orders, do visit their FB page: facebook.com/LeCheriBaguio/
Food delivery service: Shahi Qila Pakistani Food
Shahi Qila is now a food delivery service. Order a day ahead via their Facebook page (for now, no contact number yet) and for a purchase worth P500, it’s free delivery. =)
Newly Checked Off at 2600
1.) Aponi Bayosa
Only when I started composing this post that I realized I didn’t have a photo of their menu. It does look like they change the food list on their whiteboard frequently though. They do have the richest hot choco (95) and hot matcha (P125) I’ve ever had. It’s been ages too that I’ve had palitaw (P50). Apo ni Bayosa’s is one of the tastiest, what with the little bowl full of toasted sesame seeds they have in it as an accompaniment to this treat. (“,)
2.) Flower Cafe at Villa Romana Hotel
Letting a thousand flowers bloom and using it for food and drink, this is one of the most innovative restos I’ve been to. I never ate so many varieties of flowers in one sitting. It’s in the tea, in the coffee, in the salad (but of course), in the mains and in the desserts. I’ll have more on this cafe/restaurant soon … Let me just get me thoughts together; there really is a ton to say. =D (Congratulations again in your newest endeavor, Ate May. Thank you so much for having us over. Can’t wait to be back)
3.) Pig Cup Coffee Shop
What called to me at this coffee shop is their crocheted pig face cup sleeves … A fun offering though their build your own plate, DIY platter, err, chopping board since you get the works: From sandwich to pasta to chicken to a fries side dish to dessert. Wee! (To the staff member who gave me an extra crinkle, thank you!) Pig Cup’s version comes with walnuts for a nice texture mix up. *sip ahh matcha green tea frost
4.) Sa-Wrapped Sunset Resto
Years after Ms. Mariz, whom we met at La Casita fine dining restaurant at Heritage Hotel opening, told us about it, we finally get to check it off.
Atrium Lobby Cafe at Grand Sierra Pines Hotel
What did I tell you about this favorite spot of mine. Always, always something special to commemorate the season. For Baguio’s foundation month, dishes with a Cordilleran twist. Race’s fave was the tinolang native manok sa gata (with a strong Bicolano quality because of the use of gata. Reminded me of the food we had while in Legazpi). Mine was the kiniing rice (yes, here we go again with the rice that’s also an entree) and the intricate balatinao topped with banana sorbet. (Thank you so much, Chef Carla for inviting X+1 to try the Atrium resto’s latest offering!)
Eatsploring 2601/La Trinidad
Norfolk Lounge/Norfolk Diner
The old Country Diner in Baguio became Norfolk Diner when they moved to La Trinidad, with more selections of mouthwatering eatables.
Ongkoleyt – Premium Goods for the Thrifty (with Food Crafters and Golden Nachos)
Just in case you didn’t hear the news yet [News like this spreads like wildfire because everyone loves a bargain … that’s according to the bad guy in Hallmark’s Arabian Nights, Aladdin. Who went from♪ ♫ riffraff, street rat ♫ (that’s Disney‘s line) to one of the Crazy Rich Asians. *taha], a store that’s worthy of being dubbed one of my happy places for its “PX goods” for cheap.
It’s not just heaven for people with sweet teeth. (Though don’t miss out on the most luscious leche flan ever in their fridge display case in your panic buying of Hershey’s, M&M’s, Timtams, Pringles, Cadbury, etc.) They also have savory selections from local Philippine brands #SupportLocal … courtesy of Food Crafters (hotdogs, negosyo pack siomai – P120 for 60 pieces *nomnom the beef one \m/) and Golden Nachos (250grams package for P50).
You can find them at 100 General Luna Road (the building beside Station 120). (Thank you again to the Ong family for inviting us to witness this milestone, for giving us a sneak peek into the inner workings of your store, and the bag of goodies to share with our foodie lovies.)
And we’re done with the update. Feel free to get the conversation going in the comments section, my foodie friends, if you’ve got questions, eatsperiences to share and all that jazz. We’re off to joy ride and enjoy this blue skies, sunny day. =D

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.)
