Talk about big servings on affordable prices.
I, for one, ordered "Guys on the Hood" - a slice of pizza, chicken, spaghetti, porkchop, a swab of fat french fries and carrots, all for only P120. Superb taste as well. Ü
If you're a big eater, you should try this spot. They also serve pasta, steaks, big burgers and i say BIG burgers.
Aside from the food though, you get a feel of the American 50's with the posters of celebrities and movies popular during that era. My only negative comment is that they were playing "The Carpenters", isn't that too fast forward for their theme?
Favorite Dish: Guys On The Hood
Shakes - they have them in strawberry, chocolate, banana, and a lot other flavors
Oh My Gulay! owned by renowned artist Kidlat Tahimik

Manga Tea Drink (forgot what they call it there)
Do not Order:
Putanesca (too dry)
Cafe Melodin is a cozy cafe that serves Filipino, American & Continental dishes. Conveniently located at the ground floor of the Baguio Palace Hotel, hotel guests usually go for their all-day breakfast fare (which includes coffee, chocolate or tea) ...perfect for brunch! They serve a wide variety of sandwiches, appetizers, main course, desserts, native specialties. Their staff are all friendly and alert to diners' needs.
Favorite Dish: I like their all-day breakfast served with fried rice, sunny-side up egg, Baguio longanisa with "achara" (pickled papaya) and tomato slices with hot chocolate for only P125.
Another favorite is their "Binalot" Special which for P99 already includes hot, steamed rice, 2 pcs. steamed shrimps, half a pickled/salted egg, tomato slices and your choice of pork "adobo", grilled pork chop, fried milkfish, etc. wrapped ("binalot") in banana leaves.
Note: Sorry, no pictures now, as we were so hungry when we ate there; I forgot to take pictures of the food.
Mr. Ching Cuisine is a Restaurant that specializes n Chinese cuisine. Found at the ground floor of Baguio Palace Hotel in Legarda Street, Mr. Ching is frequented not only by hotel guests, but the city residents and employees as well. Unlike other Chinese restaurants that are characteristically cluttered and noisy, Mr. Ching is clean and quiet, with great olfactory delight of Chinese dishes.
As a sign of hospitality, they serve house tea while you wait for your order. The waiters are alert and sensitive to guests' needs. They can even be consulted for directions on how to go to some tourist destinations in the city.
Master & Visa Credit Cards are accepted for payment.
Favorite Dish: Chicken-Asparragus Soup, Chopsuey, Shanghai Rolls, Beef With Broccoli served with Mr. Ching Chinese Rice are our favorites...All that for only P340!
Their fruit shakes are great; I like their strawberry, watermelon and green mango shakes. Only P65/shake.
Volante is a small pizza & pasta specialty restaurant at the 2nd floor of a building which was formerly Session Theatre (in the middle part of Session Road). Though small and at the second floor, people still go there for the cozy ambience, friendly staff and delicious pasta, pizza and other Italian food fare.
Favorite Dish: We like their Chicken-Pesto Pasta, minestrone soup and various solo pizzas. Their strawberry shake is superb!
Mongolian themed buffet with excellent selection of desserts definitely worth the PHP180/head ($1=PHP45.45). Segregation of smokers and non-smokers perfect for families.
Look for Dolor, the amiable supervisor if you have any special requests.
Parking space infront. Customers who are physically challenged need extra assistance due to the steps leading to dining area.
Fried chicken recom for children not eating mongolian buffet.
Btw, desserts not part of buffet price of PHP180. But hey, at less than $4, its already a steal.
Favorite Dish: MONGOLIAN...WOOOHOOO!
Pork BBQ that's affordable. Chocolate batirol in a hotmug. Flavored with amaretto, orange liquer, or just plain beaten with a wooden batirol in a batirol pitcher. Very cozy and private garden setting.
What more should you ask for?
Warning: Those allergic to peanuts should avoid the choco batirol since it contains ground peanuts!
Favorite Dish: Chocolate with amaretto.
Andy, a friend of mine, recommended this restaurant during one of my several trips to Baguio city (BC). We were looking for local specialties that define BC. This one is rustic and the setting was not frilly. I like the fresh tropical fruit cups served with a serving of organic honey. They vary the lunch offering menus but I've noticed that the breakfast menus are mainstays. Be sure to ask which breads are freshly baked and sample them.
Am picky about wash rooms so their separate ladies and gents wash rooms are a plus for me. They have an open air area where roastings are supposed to be done. Otherwise, it is perfect for bonfire for warming hands during cold weather.
Another plus: they usually showcase the work of local artists and you can actually buy the paintings.
A warning though: Once I've sat nearest the building's veranda type table and the area stunk with cat poo. I understand it is hard to control considering the perimeter is a public area. So, mental note, since then, I always sit in the middle part of the main area.
Favorite Dish: Farmer's Breakfast. Woooowooo! Thick strips of crispy bacon on a bed of mesclun lettuce, a cup of fresh tropical fruit served with honey, a huge serving of garlic fried red rice. PHP250+ last that I went there.
Hot pot of fruit tea :)
Local porterhouse valued at PHP208 ($1=45.45) inclusive of buttered veggies and mushroom soup.
Set as an asian style steakhouse filled with pinewood wall and furniture.
Try their melt in your mouth Sans Rival. Superb! The Leche flan is good but a bit small for me.
Favorite Dish: Local tenderloin steak with a scant of gravy.
Having dinner at Leaf Korean Restaurant is a great idea, especially when the temperature in Baguio drops below 15degrees C, just like when we were there.
I was craving for some some spicy Korean soup and the place offered a really steaming Spicy Beef Soup - strips of beef and vegetables in a red tomato-based broth that obviously had lots of chili peppers in it. It went very well with steamed rice. This dish, however, is only for those people who go for really spicy food.
The main attraction in this restaurant, though, is their Korean barbecue. You have a choice of meat, seafood and veggies that you yourself will cook on the heavy iron grill on your table. We chose some pork belly slices, which were served with onions, sauces and large lettuce leaves. To enjoy the barbecued meat, it is rolled together with the onions and sauces in a lettuce leaf.
The good thing about the barbecue is that the hot grill keeps you warm also, but be prepared also to smell like what you placed on the grill, afterwards.
The price of food in this place, for a Korean restaurant, is very reasonable. Each order is about 200 pesos and is good for 2 persons.
The restaurant with the real unpretentious Baguio ambiance. Operating since I can remember going back in the 1950's and located in the Malcolm Plaza Market at the foot of Session Road Usual hang out for the mining crowd and students. A " must- to" drop in during my Holy Week visit to Baguio-- or my "sentimental journey vacation" is not complete. Well known to the locals and Baguio Old Timers. A family resto.
Favorite Dish: Nothing beat their fresh "siopao" asado or bola bola with Mami.
Takuyaki was first introduced in Japan in 1935 by Endo Tomekichi. His first Takuyaki store is called Aizuya. Over the years, the business branched out to many parts of Asia and the United States. In the Philippines, the Takuyaki mania first spread in General Santos City in 1997. It was Edgino Bogayong II, a local entrepreneur, brought the odd Japanese snack to the market. They are now franchising it under the name Kuya Chito’s Takuyaki.
Takuyaki balls is a mixture of vegetables that was made spherical using flour and eggs to bind them together. Then they are sprinkled with chicken, fish or pork powder and slathered with hot or sweet and sour sauce.
Everything's a wow. From the food to the interior to the staff, this resto is simply amazing.
The walls are decorated with cool stuff artsy fotos, pictures of young monks, and other cool objects d' art.
theres also a music menu. ask for it and they will gladly play what type of music you wanna hear.
Favorite Dish: veggie burrito, and embutido
