Dalikan Food Terminal: Dali!!! Maykan, Mangan!

First and foremost, let me greet you, my foodie friends, a prosperous 2019! … Naturally, one that’s packed with memorably delicious eats … even if it’s not a holiday. *hihi

Baguio Dalikan Taste Asia Food Terminal 2019

Happy new year, guys! \m/

At the first ever Kekkan Festival in La Trinidad that happened a couple weeks back, Race and I met Chef Harry, one in the panel of judges to find the main dish and dessert that best represented the municipality. =)

X+1 got to see him among the movers and shakers in the food industry check out the various dishes that were laid in front of us, judging it for originality, use of local ingredients, taste, and so on.

A couple days later, we were at his restaurant soft opening with Sir Kurt and his Gawis family, and the Dean team. At the straightforward eating place, well away from the tourist crowds and their personal vehicles at Tamawan Village, we got to check out Chef Harry’s food stylings.  \m/

We might have arrived too early that day (#excited) so we munched on patupat for starters while Chef got busy in the kitchen.  In a basket, we took it like rice cake till you drop and I tell you, you really will eat and eat as much as you can. I’m not a big rice cake/rice dessert person to say the least. But this got me peeling away at the banana leaf wrappers to get a bite out of the perfect consistency, nicely flavored ( I didn’t need a sugar dip) suman. ^^, Coupled with barako, Sir Kurt and his brood, X+1 were already satisfied.

Soft opening dishes *nomnomnom

Since Chef was serving a buffet for the first day operations, we then had salad, sausage … that went so well with Dalikan bugnay wine, pinikpikan (Of course!), bulalo (Of course, yes!), scrumptious flavorful Asian dishes like chicken curry and a curry-like pasta, etc.

This food stop’s bulalo has got to be the best bulalo ever! You can really taste how it was boiling, simmering, softening in the wee hours of the morning. Every part that was fatty, somehow took on the form, feel, and taste of marrow. ❤ ❤ ❤ What. Sorcery. Is. This?

For dessert, more patupat … and Panlaok desserts like brownies and cupcakes. Beside the water “dispenser”, there’s a free drink at Dalikan that can also double up as dessert. Hello, rice wine. Sweet and addicting, we almost squeezed the rice with the ladle dry, just to “igib” every drop of tapey from the clay pot. =b

Ever have a dish haunt you like your conscience when you did something naughty? *tahaha The whole holiday week, I kid you not, I was thinking of nothing but the Dalikan beef shank soup. The monsoon and the last hurrah typhoon making the day cloudy gloomy didn’t help.

Then it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day – a sunny day in the new year: January 2.

How to Eat at Dalikan – Taste Asia

Dali!!!

Come as early as you can because the dishes this eatery has to offer for the day gets sold out fast. (They open their doors as early as 7:00 a.m. with staples like pinikpikan, etag, baka, watwat and new additions daily.) (“,)

Menu of the day … Sold out watwat, baka, and etag as of 3:00 p.m. =b Unlimited coffee at P49.

Maykan

Wash your hands. Ready your sauces; lots of fun choices at this joint. They have Farmer’s Daughter‘s amusingly named hot sauces, and don’t miss the inhouse chili garlic, too. You won’t have to wait long because this Food Terminal serves fast food, Cordilleran fast food. =D

Mangan

Lumdang – Tasty, filling, with etag pieces and garlic bits that takes this humble bowl of black beans to a whole ‘nother level.

Watwat – Don’t judge this unassuming board of pork chunks.  True to watwat form, every piece is tender and oh so yummeh.  If ever you need more flavor in spite of what it already has, dip in tapey bits and the salt/sugar mix. Either way, this dish really sings. Laaaaa! ♫ ♫

Watwat =D

Etag – Lunch and a show at Dalikan where the etag is heated up with a blowtorch … a wittle blowtorch. Wee! Packed to go, the smokey aroma of the meat tickled our noses all the way home. Though I’m not a fan of tapa consistency meat, this smoked meat is a-okay with me. It’s like a flavorful protein bubble gum. *heehaha I really love it. Every nook and cranny of it is salty zingy. Perfect for carb, in the way of rice, stacking because a little goes a long way. (Long live, etag! Good thing, Chef Harry’s resto has big servings of rice, too.)

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Mario! A prosperous 2019 to you and your loved ones! First to comment on the first post of the year! (“,)

      Trust, Dalikan Taste Asia is worth the long trip to Long long. It lit a fire under me to get a post up when I’m still wallowing in lazy bug bite and writer’s block. O diba. *hihi

      Thank you so much for keeping up to date of what’s happening at Find Good Baguio Foods! I hope you enjoy your Dalikan food trip as much as we did when ever it is you get to it. Enjoy the journey to and from the resto too. \m/

  2. Lina says :

    2019 barely started and you already found what looks like a very nice restaurant. I will check Dalikan off my list soon.

    Find Good Baguio Foods the best!!!! Happy new year too!

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Lina! I guess you could say we ended 2018 and started 2019 with a fantastic find. (Thanks go out to Sir Kurt and the Kekkan Festival, too.)

      Have a wonderful meal time at Dalikan Food Terminal! Thank you for visiting findgoodBaguiofoods.com. Wish you the best of 2019! (“,)

  3. Alysa says :

    You have a post. It looks like Dalikan Food Terminal made you really happy. Well visit this restaurant soon. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think this is the only restaurant serving watwat so I never tried that yet. Happy New Year. May this new year bring the fulfillment of all your dreams.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Alysa! A very true statement – Dalikan Food Terminal made me really happy. It’s like I want to eat there every single day now. *heehaha

      With regard to restos serving watwat, I’m sure there are a great number of eating places that have watwat here in Baguio … just that we haven’t gotten to them =b … Dalikan does it really well though; it’s so satisfying to eat.

      I hope you have a wonderful time at Dalikan and enjoy the taste of your first watwat pork dish there. A prosperous and memorable 2019 to you as well. Thank you for your support! (“,)

  4. William says :

    Wow those Corilleran dishes are mouthwatering. What is Dalikan Taste Asia? Is it a Cordilleran food restaurant or an Asian fusion restaurant?

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, William! They sure are! Mouthwatering, I mean. I think Chef Harry is looking to serve an Asian fusion menu together with the highland greats, but while they’re starting out, he started with Cordilleran dishes. Dalikan will add something new as they go.

      I hope you enjoy the dishes you try at Dalikan Taste Asia Food Terminal. Thanks for visiting this food blog! A prosperous 2019 to you! (“,)

  5. Pauline B. says :

    Dalikan is like Farmer’s Daughter? Sana they opened in another location not near Tamawan. Even Tamawan Cafe servers Cordilleran food.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Pauline B.! It does look like that at first glance. I was thinking the same thing too, about them being in the vicinity of Tamawan. Chef Harry will be adding more dishes as the days progress and Asian selections like tom yum, curry, etc. will be some of them. At least, I’m hoping … as we got to taste curry at soft opening and he also does that really well.

      I hope you’ll still make a visit to Dalikan Restaurant and that whatever you get satisfies you. Thanks for dropping by! A prosperous 2019 to you! (“,)

  6. Alvin Sioson says :

    Is it very near Farmers Daughter? I would like to visit it soon but I’m a little confused with the location.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Alvin Sioson! Dalikan Food Terminal is 500 meters away from Farmer’s Daughter. Please utilize the Google Maps link after Dalikan address on the post; locations of Tam-Awan Village, Guillermo’s Diner (which is now Petron) and Dalikan are pinned on the map. Hope this helps!

      Thanks for visiting Find Good Baguio Foods! I hope you enjoy your meal at Dalikan! (“,)
