Quarantine Surprises … into Season’s Eatings \m/
Pretty much, these are food items that could turn a regular day into a holiday (I would know, I did get a huge sense of satisfaction and happiness receiving these, so I’m so grateful to Blak ‘n’ Wyte, Gani and Ringo, LJ/Food and Grocery on Wheels, Luscious Tarts, and also Cha Tien for giving this foodie something to look forward to on a given day. It most surely breaks the monotony of our days on house arrest. Who knew, extended taumbahay moves can lead to forgetting what day it is. *heehaha I digress.)
These dishes/delectable treats can also make Season’s Eatings (What, already?!?) even more special. (The meme about 2020 being summed up as January, February, quarantine, December is so apt.)
So here we go, quarantine surprises that could be the perfect addition to your Christmas and New Year spreads.
1.) Blak ‘n’ Wyte
While the cafe is already open for dine in these days, complete with new normal protocols in place, they also do deliveries, just in case you’re still unsure or just you find being out and about cumbersome. Aside from the dishes that they can cook up, they also have grub from other places available at the Kay Lines Drop and Pick counterpart of the resto. =D
It was at picking up an order in February of this (what will be a) bizarre year for us all that I first got to try Blak n Wyte’s black pasta. I was tickled pink to see it was delivered together with scrumptious creamcheese puffs. You read that right, not just cream puffs, but cream cheeeeese puffs.
The puffs are fruity in that one box has three different flavors: Mango, strawberry (No, that’s not asado *hihi), and blueberry. Just the proper amount of fruit ripple in there to keep it from being cloying. I’m lovin’ that fine streusel topping on the pastry ball too.
Get your orders in:
2.) Gani and Ringo’s Crispy Pata atbp.
Need I say more?
Just looking at the photos, and watching the ASMR type vid below, I already want to place another order. Aren’t you tempted?
Crispy crunch meatsies, just a message away.

3.) LJ’s Pasalubong Center
Interesting to think that I’ve tasted more specialties from other provinces and regions in this time of COVID-19 when it’s quite the feat to move around, than I ever have in previous years when traveling was easy peasy. That’s thanks in large part to shops like LJ’s Pasalubong Center/Food and Grocery on Wheels who bring these edibles into the city for us.
LJ’s is the official exclusive distributor of Hannah Marielle’s products. But more than soft and spongy mini cake rolls, saccharine bites that are yemaroons … and yema cookies, the selection is extensive: Momilo Mio cheese pie (Might look like an uncut cheese bar but it’s not; it’s better), Vjandep pastel, Merzci napoleones, Conti’s mango bravo cake, Big Al’s decadent choco cake, etc. (“,)
Looking to stash some sweet delicacies?
4.) Luscious Tarts
I never really got to into the Portuguese egg tarts fad when it first came into being from shops like Lord Stow’s. Apparently, they’ve made a comeback. If there was one positive outcome from this pandemic, it’s that it brought out the spunk in people … For home bakers, this time, they went beyond baking for their loved ones and as a result, we have stuff like this, homemade pasteis de nata from Luscious Tarts, we can say is one of Baguio’s very own.
Top to bottom, from the shiny burnt glaze of the smooth custard to the delicate flaky micro crisp puff pastry crust, it’s perfection. =] Not feeling a sugared flavor for egg tarts, Luscious Tarts also has a savory version, with bacon .
Ready for lusciousness?
Foodievent in GCQ
If you haven’t heard yet, you milk tea lover you, Cha Tien, Baguio’s first homegrown milktea brand, has returned. They’ve a new location, with a wide dining area … perfect for hanging out downing glasses of their refreshing concoctions with easy physical distancing from other milk tea fans … or hosting an intimate par-tea.
Watch the video to see where #2 Tan Building, Corner 2, Camdas Subdivision is. ChaTien is on the second floor.
More power, Blak ‘n’ Wyte/Kay Lines, Gani and Ringo, LJ/Food and Grocery on Wheels, Luscious Tarts, and Cha Tien.
And this post is done. ^^,
Let’s please keep in mind that we’re still under general community quarantine, that while we’re trying to have a happy holidays, a merry Christmas and a happy new year, indulging in this year’s Season’s Eatings, may we be responsible humans, keep our guards up, and stay safe by following Covid prevention protocols. \m/

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.)
