@ Cafe by the Ruins

The last of our series of foodtrips at Baguio City. Another place one of my friends requested that we visit was....



We all heard that they serve good breakfast and coffee there. So we decided to have breakfast there at our second day.

Why is it called "Cafe by the Ruins"? Well, according to their site ->

The ruins are a stretch of stone wall across the street from Baguio City Hall, relic of the house of the last [civil] governor. The restaurant of bamboo slats, poles and weaves nestles against the stone and lush greenery, its windows and sides open to the view and the clean Baguio air. Hanging plants, pieces of folk art, and craft and artwork by Baguio artists emphasize the soul of this café. Organized, owned, designed and run (they often take orders and serve at tables) by artists and art-lovers, its menu, changed quarterly according to the seasons, represents not only a restaurant concept but an ethos. The food reflects the ecology and rhythm of Baguio and the Cordilleras.
Hmmm so that's why. ;D

The interior of the place was neat and unique. A lot of art pieces, coffee stands, bookshelves, stoneseats, wall decors. So it was already a given that we'll indeed have lots of pics in different parts of the restaurant taken.



Now off we go to the food... (next entry... coming soon. bitin!)

CARPE DIEM!

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
