The Axes Food Effect

It’s not always me keeping a lookout for a good place in Baguio City to get sustenance.  You could say that I’m operating with the Wonder Years opening theme in my head, going, ♪ ♫ I get by with a little help from my friends ♪.  (It’s even more so today, than before I started this blog as you’ll see in a little while. =D)

On one of the days that I put myself on house arrest, Race brought home, not the bacon but dishes from Axes Cafe and Panciteria. (I’m so happy restaurants are popping up in the Wright Park vicinity. Used to be, we had to go back to town after a riding frenzy just to get something good to eat. ^^,)  From the moment, we transported the food into the proper containers, the sight of it and the smell of it gave me a tingle. Oohhh, the Axes effect!

Soledad’s: Where Memories of Good Home Cooked Food Come Back to Life

A common proverb in the Philippines goes; ‘Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, di makararatíng sa paroroonan’.  (Literal translation: He, who doesn’t know how to look back on where he came from, will never reach his destiny.)  This can also apply to food when we take a look at the options we have for getting good food today.  Our society has developed so much in the food industry, that even the biggest brands for food in other countries, e.g., McDonald’s and Starbucks have found their way here.  Some had a little difficulty breaking into the Baguio market and some even failed (Wendy’s and Kenny Roger’s Roasters) but with the arrival of these restaurants, the number of places to eat at in the city had risen exponentially.
