UPDATE: C Boutique Hotel … Angels, ‘meet Charley’.

All rightie, it’s confirmed. Charley’s is the name of C Boutique Hotel’s in house restaurant/bar. (I didn’t want to assume when Jo, Race and I went exploring what this accommodation had to offer in the way of munchables. *hee)

Anyhoo, due to the inclement weather we’ve had (Typhoon Nando’s in the Philippine area of responsibility now but I hope, it will leave the soonest *fingers crossed), I (probably everyone) didn’t get out much to check any restaurant off the list or even make a repeat visit to any of the places I liked. Boy, was I in the mood for Charley’s dishes.

It was fabulous timing that Maam Gracie of SkyCable’s Events Next Door invited my fellow blogger eatsplorers, Ane and Sam, and me to an exclusive food event at C Boutique. \m/

No Picnic at Camp John Hay: Where Do We Eat Now?

Growing up in Baguio, one of my fondest memories is that of the family/friends picnicking at Camp John Hay.  You take your pick of the tables set up in Scout Hill (beside what used to be the tennis courts… and there are more tables set up on the ‘Scout’ hillside =D, now), usually trying to get to CJH the earliest to beat the other picnickers to the tables nearest the grill.

The view from the table by the Little John’s window…and some representations Little John’s customers have drawn. Nice, no? ^^,

In the event that it rains on your picnic (which can be expected of Baguio weather *hihi) and everything gets so drenched that nothing is edible or maybe an army of ants come in and march away with everything but your trash bags, the picnic can still push through.  (“,)   Read More…

A New Meaning to the Phrase ‘Food for Thought’

It’s not always fine and dandy, full speed ahead, the wind in my hair and the sun on my face when I went on the quest to find good food in Baguio.  There were a few (thank the gods, just a few) instances when restaurants disappointed me (Race and P3, too =D) with their food, their service or worse, both.  For some of these establishments, they were even given chances to redeem themselves (which they didn’t take *pft).  These chances were much to Race’s annoyance who said that if they sucked the first time we visited them; you can expect them to suck again.  =b.

At the very least, good food and first class service should always be consistent.  It’s true I did say Read More…
