I never go to Baguio without eating here. It usually is the highlight of my trip. Will be breaking down my entries for our dinner so that you can get to see all the pictures. Chef Vicky is from Canada and moved back here to retire. Now this is what she does full time. I think there is a minimum of 6 people for you to be able to reserve for a meal but its really worth it. Here is her beautiful house. It has a great view.

On the way to Baguio, we always stop by Matutina’s to cut the trip. Its like homemade Filipino food that is very tasty with very reasonable prices Maybe less than 400 pesos per head depending on what you order.

Right beside Paoay church, you will see Herencia cafe. It has traditional ilocos food that was quite delicious. The pakbet pizza is one of their most popular pizzas although, I was quite disappointed when it came since it was just basically a vegetarian pizza. Unfortunately I don’t remember what other dishes we ordered but I do remember that we did like the poque poque which was a classic dish from there that consisted of eggplant, with egg and tomato sauce.

I wasn’t taking pictures yet of food when we went here, so I don’t really remember what we ordered but I do remember that we enjoyed the food here and we felt bad that we had little time and couldn’t go back to try to other items on the menu. So if you are in the area, this is one of the good restos.

The best crabs I’ve tasted in Davao. Its garlic butter crabs is supposed to be dipped in a salt and pepper sauce where you squeeze the calamansi just like the sauce for the pigeon. Since I usually eat crabs with vinegar, this one gives it a nice twist. Another dish that really got my attention was the grilled chicken that had a sauce that was similar to bagoong balayan and condiments as shown in the picture. They also give you a bowl of water to dip the rice roll to make it softer and create your own rice roll with the condiments of your choice.
If you’re a crab lover, this is the place for you!

Recommended by my yoga instructor for margaritas, this place is owned by one of the local “Survivors” in Survivor: Philippines, Mika Batchelor. When we got there, the place was full so we were asked to sit at the bar first so I ordered a fresh straweberry margarita which was pretty good. We were so hungry that we ordered all our food already so that when we do move to the table, we have our food served already.
Food was good and decent in general but my favorite was the kinilaw. I mean you have to remember you’re in a very provincial town that has not been developed so expect to have bad service and decent food. Some of the food that we ordered came fast, but some came after a really long time. I didn’t really have expectations about this place since we just really wanted to have dinner and chit chat. There also aren’t many options so I wouldn’t really complain too much.

Aside from Tonkichi, this place is also a good alternative to have some tonkatsu. I think there are branches all over hong kong and all over the world. If I am not mistaken, I think its opening in Glorietta 2 soon, which means no need to go to Megamall to get your tonkatsu fix at Yabu.

I had such high expectations from this place because I see it all over Facebook and Instagram saying its so good. We ordered several items on the menu just to try. The original recipe ramen, the gyoza and the famous pork buns. The ramen was fine but I thin it was nothing super, while the gyoza was really just a tiny version of any other gyoza, and the pork buns had mayo as the sauce plus it was also so tiny. So honestly i don’t know why people rave about it. It also takes quite a while to get a table, we actually waited for around 45 mins to an hour. I so wouldn’t go back to this place since there are so much other good places to eat in Hongkong!

My newest discovery! I enjoyed every bite of what I ordered. Everything was fresh and newly made. One of the tell tale signs of old sushi is if they use old seaweed. This one was really new and crispy. Nothing from the revolving sushi bar appealed to me so I ordered everything from the menu. Next time I go there, I want to try the soft shell crab temaki and the foie gras sushi!
Definitely coming back for this!

I heard this restaurant is coming to Manila soon…..I’m just not sure when but I think this place would be a good Japanese alternative in Manila. Its known for the Ramen and the Black Pig Tonkatsu - which I think would be the same as Kurobuta pork. Their menu in Singapore is quite overwhelming because they have over 300 items in it.
I would say definitely a go to place if you’re actually lazy to think of a new place to eat!
