Quarantine Surprises … into the New Year
Happy new year, Baguio food adventurers! (“,)
Let’s make that: Happy lunar new year! *hihi
The world is still on quarantine. [Ahh, what a resilient virus COVID is … May we take a cue from this highly adaptive unseen enemy please, and tap into all the resilience we can muster, too? Vaccine or no vaccine, it starts with the simple proper practice of wearing face masks and face shields. (It’s 2021, and it’s still not instilled in many of us. What is this wearing-your-underwear-with-your-d!ck-hanging-out type of mask wearing, people/fellow “soldiers”? Come on.)]
From my last quarantine surprises feature, a handful of other food stuff/food products have found themselves to me yet again, and so here goes another post.
1.) Everything Bacon.Bacon Everything
Everything Bacon.Bacon Everything’s bacon jam is a jam per se, what with the qualities that it’s sweet and spreadable. A highly versatile one I must say, since mixing it with a couple other ingredients, we could turn it into something else. ^^,
I remember X+1 hanging out at Foggy Mountain Cookhouse, with Chef Babes and friends where he used this as a dip together with some mustard for Hungarian sausages. Lipsmacking good! What we did at our house, aside from using it as palaman on bread, we made it into salad dressing and a different flavored sauce for pasta.
Find your jam for bacon jam:
2.) KDSS Homemade (Korean Daily Sidedish Shop)
While I’ve gotten out of the Kdrama binging vortex, (I’m just following one Korean show now; it’s new, so it’s not a one sitting in a day deal. Mr. Queen does have lots of cooking in it which makes me crave Korean stuff on weekends.) what better way to get into the feel of what you’re watching than with viewing-victuals like rice balls, kimbap, mandu (My faves from KDSS. \m/ You could say, a complete meal in and of itself.), etc. Available individually, as a set for one person, or a bilao set.
Order glorious scrumptious Korean side dishes, here:
3.) Redsnapper Military Cut Off
While travel restrictions have been lifted pretty much, it still is a bit cumbersome to really go around. Missing the beach and sea foods? Red Snapper MilCut is ready to bring this to you. =) They’re also open for dine in at 163 Military Cut Off, from the waiting shed near Kubong Sawali, follow the road going up, 3rd house on the left … a location far enough away from crowds so you could enjoy eating with your hands, digging for every juicy morsel in the shells.
Go on a sea food diet:
4.) Shake It Right – Healthy Trail Mix and more
Two words: Healthy snacking. Lots of nuts/seeds and dried fruits in the different packs we like to shake before opening and before getting another handful. (Almonds, walnuts, cashews, pistachios, pecans, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, blueberries, cranberries, goji berries, and dried cherries. I said that aloud and it was a mouthful!) I appreciate that there are no nuts super easy to come by in the packets with nuts. No offense to the humble peanut; I still love you … just not in trail mix please. =b
If you ever get parched, the ‘shake’ in Shake It Right, also stands for fruit shakes. Why not get some drinks together with the crunchy munchies? Me likey that mango-guyabano combo; I never tried putting those two fruits together before. *sip ahh!
Munch and crunch and sip your way to health:
5.) Tita Lea’s Food Specialties
A name we all know and love by now, I’m sure. *wink I don’t think I need to elaborate any further … Oh maybe just that there are specialties at Tita Lea’s shops other than what she makes herself, if you didn’t know yet. Like these Granda sweets. Oh my, my tastebuds are crazy for this sans rival and sylvanas.
While you’re at Tita Lea’s, might as well get your faves, eh? Kutsinta? Pichi? Kikiam? Rellenong bangus? *nomnomnom (I’m using the 2015 photo of the relleno since the one Tita sent us recently was the fastest disappearing relleno ever. =)) )
Once again, we come to the end of a post. Thank you so much and more power to Everything Bacon, KDSS Homemade, Red Snapper Military Cut Off branch, Shake It Right (Pot O’ Gold‘s sister food shop), and Tita Lea!
Happy eatsploring and a happy Chinese new year, y’all! Let’s protect each other by wearing our face masks and face shields properly, and ‘distancia amiga’ when out and about. Take care, keep safe. =D

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.)
