Baguio Food Guide: Baguio's Famous Eats

4:18 PM tuklaserang matipid 1 Comments

Baguio has a plenitude of restaurants and diners to delight your palate and slowly gaining traction as a food destination. To help, we visited a few and were not disappointed. I have always been a little obsessed with food, but I’d never consider myself a ‘foodie’. Every place that we visited, food is an integral part of your journey. I'm not saying that travel and food are somewhat concomitant but for me, travel and food have to go hand in hand to have a complete experience.

GRUMPY JOE
We were walking around Leonard wood and happened to pass by this place and decided to stop. There were about 10 people lining up and ten minutes later we were able to secure a seat. There must be something going on here because few minutes later there were about 15-20 customers in line. We were handed a menu and ordered a small pepperoni pizza, grumpy juice and strawberry smoothie to go with it. The verdict? Delicious! and I love the strawberry smoothie served in mason jar. They also serve mouthwatering burgers, rice meals, mixed juices, desserts and salads.

Lomo Ribs at Canto, Ketchup Food Community
It’s easy to see why Canto, a restaurant at the Ketchup Food Community, is always full with diners (with more lining up outside): the lomo ribs, one of the few offerings on its menu, are just mouthwatering.  It tastes really good, very tender and delicious. The serving is large and good for three. The verdict? Good food and affordable. Canto is a place not to be missed.

Happy Tummy

I was so happy we found this place. I'm no Thai cuisine expert but I like Thai food - flavorful, spicy and sweet. There are two branches of Happy Tummy, one is in located inside Ketchup Food Community and the other is in upper session road near SM Baguio. We had Tom Yam ( Shrimp) , Pad Thai and some Black Gulaman to go with it. The verdict? Delicious and I love the spicy kick of Tom Yam.

 Street Food Tripping!

Dynamite
I added one of my favorite street food snack in Baguio. The locals call it Dynamite and it's spicy hot.

Strawberry Taho
Another must try local Baguio delicacy is the Strawberry Taho. No Baguio food trip and vacation is complete without eating Strawberry Taho. The strawberry taho recipe is a dream: mix silken tofu, strawberry sauce, and sago together for a delicious treat!

Footlong hotdogs with lettuce, corn on the cob and lots lots more.
