Craft 1945 – Casa Marcos: Their House is Your/Our House

Finally, it’s happened to me … #90sDanceMusic

But, of course, callos (“,)

Casa Marcos … right in front of my face. My feelings, can’t describe it. ♪ ♪

 

Ahh, that’s a stretch. I can describe it.  =b In a word, “ecstatic” … that I finally stepped into the threshold of this old house turned restaurant.  For the number of times I passed by Outlook Drive, from the passenger seat of a van, then behind Race on a motorcycle, what I always saw is the house beside it. Who knew the beauty that is the Craft 1945 house sitting high up on the hill.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

There’s nothing like being in Outlook to drink in the early morn. The sunlight has a different way of shining here, it seems to me, filtered through the needles of the many pine trees around. =) I relished in it while we waited for the blessing to mark the grand opening of Craft/Casa.

When soil makes a curvier butt than you. =b

There’s lots to see in and around the property. One of the most notable, as you come up the driveway, are the jeans used as pots for some fern. Soil does fill up shapely jeans very well, don’t you think? *hihi

Blessing

Right beside it is a staircase leading to the terraced al fresco set up of the Craft Brewery branch. If you walk in front of the house to the other side, there’s a huge parking space that can accommodate a number of vehicles. \m/

In and around the casa – lots of places to chill, indoor and outdoor. Wide parking space

Inside the house, there’s two floors with different sections offering ample seating for huge parties you might want to hold here. One facet on the second floor that amused me are the doors to the loos. I’m thinking it’s a great conversation piece. ^^, I’ll leave out a photo of that from here and encourage you to go see for yourself when you finally make a visit.

The Queen and I

After the eventful morning, we celebrated with soup, salad, tapas, chicken, paella, and a lemonade mocktail for lunchies. I don’t believe , I’ve ever had mushroom soup like this. So many mushroom bits, it made me happy. =D

Mocktails ^^,

The tapas like tips a la pobre and baked clams topped with cheese (I didn’t see that on the menu), we ate with the loaded rice of the seafood paella. We also had Craft 1945 pollo, and Caesar salad. I enjoyed their lunch drink so much, I asked for another glass when lunch ended.

Obligatory shot in front of the Casa Marcos mural. Happy to be gorged. =))

Our day wasn’t over yet, however. We came back in the evening … what Sir Chris referred to as ‘when the real party starts’. Wee!

Eat, Drink, Chill

Craft 1945 by night \m/

What a sight the Craft’s and Casa Marcos’ new house is in the evening; the warm glow streaming from the windows, the sparkly lights over the alfresco section, and the bonfire calling to me like a flame would to a moth. ^^,

We parked ourselves in one of the tables under the stars and the sliver of a moon this time as we waited for our foodie blogging friends. We got started with our first glasses of Craft Brewery brews: Old Xavier and Lagud.

Old Xavier beer

Eat we did, when we were all complete; and Englishman in New York entertained the four in our group through to the end of the night as the perfect accompaniment to the picapica dinner.

Mushroom adobo =D

In Chiki‘s and my case, we drowned ourselves on the mocktails. Read kiddie drink. *tahaha I went through the list; peach and blueberry, and cucumber and basil. *sip ahh  We alternated our sips of the fantastic drinks with mushroom adobo, that was a nicely done adobo.

Baguio Craft 1945 - Casa Marcos Spanish sisig 2019

Spanish sisig Whoozah

The Spanish sisig was also a fantastic pulutan, with its rich fat and minute crispy bits of liempo, chorizo, and pork ears. If you happen to bite into a chili, which highness did, it’s an eyes wide open sensation and a quick reach for more beer. *hee

Cheers

A Spanish resto wouldn’t be a Spanish resto without callos. Ahh, the tender tripe and ox tail skin in tomato sauce was a taste explosion. When all the solids were gone, we had a mind to ask for rice to clean the callos sauce away from the serving dish. *tee hee We got our fill of Casa Marcos’ paella and tenderloin tips, too. The garlic fried in the oil with the meat was a real treat.

Paella marinara =)

Over drinks and delicious food, we bonded with our fellow foodies. We went miles with the stories and the laughs as the night passed quickly away. We sure felt at home in the beautiful 1950s house that is Craft 1945/Casa Marcos. Their house is our house and we ended the day feeling fulfilled and satisfied. (“,)

    The photos of Craft 1945 Casa Marcos food are making me hungry. 🙂

    • XiNE says :

      Whoa, Nickie! Long time no hear! Time for a Craft 1945-Casa Marcos visit and satisfy that hunger.

      Thanks for dropping by! Happy eating! (“,)

  2. Shanna says :

    Casa Marcos Craft is a very beautiful place. It’s so nice that the house is surrounded by trees. Your photo of the windows and the trees are outside is beautiful.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Shanna! Casa Marcos + Craft Brewery really chose a great spot for their resto bar. So glad we could all relish in this when we’re at the casa.

      Thank you for leaving a comment on this post! Happy Baguio food adventures! (“,)

  3. William says :

    I think this partnership is a good one. Baguio Craft Brewery with Casa Marcos gives the Baguio Casa Marcos a different and special quality.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, William! Perfect match, Casa Marcos tapas and Craft Brewery beers for sure. I think I saw an article somewhere years back that Craft brought their beers to a Manila branch so Baguio branch isn’t so different.

      Anyhoo, thank you so much for visiting Find Good Baguio Foods! Happy dining! (“,)

  4. Iza says :

    I heard Craft 1945 serves breakfast. They open late, around lunchtime right? Thank you for the information about Craft 1945. God bless X!!

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Iza! Craft 1945 changed their opening time from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. so a true blue breakfast is a go. \m/

      Thank you for looking for information on the Baguio dining scene from this food blog! Wishing you the memorable and wonderful dining experiences! (“,)

  5. Mario says :

    Ayan na yung isang kalahati ng callos nyo. hehe I think Mahalia Jackson ang food sa Casa Marcos. Ang liit ng serving gurl.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Mario! *hihi Casa Marcos pulutan size for your Craft Brewery beers. I agree though, if you’re extremely famished, you’ll spend a fortune here.

      Thank you so much for the comments on my posts! Happy Baguio food quest! (“,)
