“Dumplings are better than flowers.”

There comes a time in everyone’s life when the craving for dumplings is so strong.  So strong, in fact that the siomai sold by vendors in pushcarts near schools and also some Baguio neighborhoods is not going to be enough.  (Affordable as they are, they’re tiny.  There’s much …or rather, little to be said about your choices for dumplings, too.  *ngahaha.  Oh, not unless, you’re happy with tokneneng like the delicious ones from the store in front of UB.  Ohhh, wow, major craving.)

Brothers Burger, Where Art Thou?

Apparently, Brothers Burger can be found in two locations in Baguio City now.  (“,) There’s one at the Camp John Hay Mile Hi Center and the newest branch,  in Technohub.

The first time I got to try this burger was in 2009 when I had a coworker who was a big Brothers Burger devotee.  (Shout out to Chrysler! =D) He was such a fan of their burgers (really, also of food in general) that he kept an eye on the newspapers for the Brothers Burger anniversary.  You see, it’s their regular promotion to slash 50% off the price of specific hamburgers to commemorate another successful year.

Diner Dash: The Face Off between 50’s Diner, Jim’s Retro Diner and Future Diner (finale)

Our diner dash competition for the best Baguio diners continues.  Introducing the third and final contender, Future Diner.  And their off!

The Third Contender: Future Diner

Race and I found ourselves on the opposite side of town when we planned to check out what gastronomic delights places like the ones found in Hotel Supreme could offer.  Getting off in front of the old building of Hotel Supreme, the Ivy Grill and Restaurant and what was known as the Orchid Bar was all dark, ominous (woooohhhhh) and deserted.  We had question marks in our eyes thinking that we made the trip out there for nothing but then turning around, we saw that the new building of Hotel Supreme had other restaurants.  One particularly noticeable establishment was Future Diner.
