Wee! More Quarantine Surprises (“,)
We’re loved by the food gods, apparently. (At least, that’s how I feel. #blessed *tahahaha)
Because while we, my foodie lovies and I at FGBFs are making good at doing our part with BAHAYnihan, it’s the good foods that seem to find us these days.
I’m ever so grateful to the entrepreneural persons who in times like these, where a mindset shift and relishing in simple joys is greatly needed, give me a sprinkle of happiness with their quarantine surprises. I can’t describe the feeling of receiving a message saying they’d like me to try this or that, their kitchen pieces de resistance. Delivered straight to our door, no less. Yeh!
[Also, it’s amazing to see people who tapped into their hidden skillsets, becoming cooks, chefs, bakers, (plantitos and plantitas, artists, craftsmen, and so on =b) and turning their house arrest distractions into something that could help in the way of extra income. Way to go, guys!]
1.) Baked Creations by Ash
Ashley is the lady of Le Coq Bleu‘s granddaughter. Looks a lot like great food prepping and baking skills runs in their blood with baked creations in her product line that not only tickle the tastebuds, but also make our eyes sparkle with delight. They’re so be-U-tiful! =D
Want some? Get some. https://www.facebook.com/bakedcreations.ashh/
(Let me also give my compliments to Ms. Ash’s delivery partner, Dispatch Delivery. In both instances, when Mr. Riders called me, they were already at the designated spot in the directions I gave to our looban housey. THANK YOU SO MUCH! )
2.) Cold Cuts Baguio
A small business borne out of a response to a need, the need for quality imported meats … at an affordable price, complete with delivery to our humble homes. Who-zah!
Want to take a closer inspection of what was in the box? Here they are: USDA ribeye, Aussie T-bone, gourmet sausages, and Aussie ribeye.
The Australian T-bone steaks were first to get cooked for lunch today. That’s juicy, tender, MSA grade 3, grass fed Angus beef. Pardon me to the steak purists … I think I was a cow in another life. I need me some greens and I ❤ veggies. *heehaha
Craving for steak? Order up! https://www.facebook.com/ColdCutsBaguio/
FREEBIE ALERT! When you input the promo code “FIND GOOD BAGUIO FOODS” in your message when you place an order at the Cold Cuts Baguio Facebook page, you’re entitled to a free Los Churreros ready-to-cook churros gift.
3.) Happy TEASbuds
Creamy-licious refreshments, especially the ice cream mermaid milk tea (A blueberrry and strawberry mash up). Just in case it didn’t register, yes, that’s miktea with ice cream, a milk tea ala mode. ^^,
As for the munchable, the shanghai bbq cheeseburger, this is probably the most layers of stuff in a burger I’ve ever encountered. Sandwiched between the buns are cheese, melted cheese, beef shanghai patty, lettuce, special bbq sauce, beef shanghai patty, pickles, eggy dressing. Another one of the literal tall orders, I’d say.
Thinking of a burger and milk tea snackage for today? https://www.facebook.com/Happy-TEASbuds-104710037943942/
4.) Iska Kitchen
One would think that it’s people stuck at home would be the only ones trying their hand at different things at this time, but no. In the case of Iska Kitchen, we have a frontliner (Actually, healthcare workers are the last lines of defense) residing at our friendly neighbor’s in La Trinidad, who’s baking part time. \m/
Check out the flavors in the Iska Kitchen line up of cookies below. So unique, no?
(Please stay safe and healthy, Ms. Ceska! Thank you so much for what you do! ❤ ❤ ❤ )

5.) L’Shef North Gourmet Products
It’s my first time to see crunchy crispy dulong anchovies, and once I popped a forkful in my mouth to taste, I was so amused with the texture, I felt like I could eat everything in the bottle just with warm rice and get a kick out of it.
You’ll also be giving our farmers and fishermen a hand when you purchase any of L’Shef’s products. How? Under their #DeliciousWithAPurpose campaign, a portion of the sales of these gourmet products are donated to them.
Go gourmet! https://www.facebook.com/lshefnorthluzon/
6.) Sweetmates Cakes
Not one to be left behind with the growing trend of providing for eatables for food adventuring at home, Sweetmates now delivers through their delivery partners, FoodPanda and GrabFood. Got favorites from their selection of dishes and desserts? They can now be brought to your home to enjoy. =]
Need a sweet mate for your taste buds? https://www.facebook.com/SweetmatesCakesBaguio/
7.) Zachsakan ng Sarap
There are many different kinds of banana breads the world over. Each and every one has a special quality to it. With Zachsakan ng Sarap’s version, it’s notable that ‘bouncy in the mouth’ feel of their banana choco bread. =) Picture your head being laid on an extremely fluffy pillow, that’s how it was in my gob with Zachsakan’s baked treat. For all its well balanced flavors, it’s a nice snack for afternoon tea … or could even be the highlight at breakfast.

(Big thank yous to Baked Creations by Ash, Cold Cuts Baguio, Happy TEASbuds, Iska Kitchen, L’Shef North Gourmet Products, Sweetmates Cakes, and Zachsakan ng Sarap for the surprise sustenance that brought joy to an otherwise monotonous and dragging quarantine. More power to you all!)
TTFN, as Tigger says … Ta-ta for now.
Just a reminder to us all, in terms of the battle versus coronavirus that we’re fighting, responsibility/accountability on each and every individual’s part is critical. Keep safe, fellow foodies; and stick to the letter of health and safety protocols especially when outside. (“,)

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.)
