Baguio City: Where to eat?

One cannot travel without eating. It’s just a fact. Haha.

(Arranged in no particular order.)

Here are some FT places that’s sure to fill you up when you’re in Baguio:

Canto by Ketchup Community

Google has once told me that the lomo ribs in Canto is a must-try. We dared to try it and lo and behold, it’s the lomo ribs I would travel 6-8 hours for.

You may also try their Veggie Pizza. A hearty vegetable pizza, overflowing with alfalfa. *insert heart emojis here*

Location: Ketchup Food Community, Romulo Dr, Baguio 2600, Benguet 


Happy Tummy by Ketchup Community

If you’re up for some Thai cuisine, this place is worth trying. My personal favorite is their Pad Thai and Spicy Tom Yum soup.

Cafe Sabel

I knew about this place while watching a travel documentary. Honestly, I’m a bit skeptic when it comes to museum restaurants, but boy, this one proved me wrong. The food is delish indeed!

Location: Ground Level, BenCab Museum, Km. 6 Asin Road, Baguio 2603, Benguet


Hill Station

This cozy and elegant restaurant is famous for its dessert called Death by Chocolate, a lava cake oozing with chocolate perfection, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Update: During our recent trip to Baguio this Nov 2016, we tried some of Hill Station’s breakfast meals and yes people, A MUST TRY! I highly recommend their Baguio Longganisa (sausage) and Tapang Usa (Wild Deer) breakfast meals!
Location: Casa Vallejo, Upper Session Road, Baguio 2600, Benguet


Baguio Craft Brewery

I never thought chicken skin can be served gourmet-style until I actually tried it at Baguio Craft Brewery. I’m always down for spicy food so it instantly won my heart.

Their Fish Tacos and Buffalo Wings are also worth trying! Of course, all the food they serve are best paired with their crafted beers. My personal favorite is the Stout Crusader. Imagine two of my favorite beverages in one glass: coffee and beer. Dreams do come true!

Location: Ben Palispis Highway, Baguio, Benguet


Amare la Cucina

Making your own pizza is fun but super challenging! Drop by this restaurant around opening hours to get a chance to make your own pizza from kneading to baking! A must try for those who can marry pizza just because!

Location: Ignacio Villamor St., Baguio, Benguet


Ili-Likha Artist Village

Rainbow stairs.

Ili-Likha is the place to be for the artsy and foodie souls out there. This place is uniquely designed using different materials that humans use on a daily basis. There are several food joints you can choose from in here. All the menus are placed near the entrance for easy food search. Must try: Balbacua!

Location: Assumption Road, Baguio, Luzon 2600, Philippines


Other restaurants you may want to check out as well:

50’s Diner

I included this on the list only because it’s famous and the 50’s-themed place is really nice, however, aside from the hefty servings, the taste is rather normal. I once tried their Chocolate Shake and it was good. I guess you’ll never go wrong with chocolate hehe.

Locations: Leonard Wood Road, Baguio, Benguet; Military Cut-Off Road, Baguio, Benguet


Good Taste

We’ve read about this place on Trip Advisor. With a 4-star rating, we decided to give it a try. The Buttered Chicken (their signature dish) and fried rice were good, although the taste is similar to the same menu that we’ve tried here in Manila. But if you’re on a budget and you want generous and hefty servings, Good Taste is worth going to.

Locations: Carino St., Baguio, Benguet; Rajah Matanda St., Baguio, Benguet; 8 Lapu-lapu St., Baguio, Benguet


18 BC Music Lounge

This place is actually a good spot for night life if you’re down for bands. I personally enjoyed the performance of the Powerpuff Corn band. They previously joined Pilipinas Got Talent and made it to the semis or finals, if I’m not mistaken.

Location: 18 Legarda Rd, Baguio 2600, Benguet


Chocolate de Batirol Garden

If you want to eat while surrounded by trees and nature’s best, I recommend trying out this restaurant. The theme, by it’s name, is nature-loving.

Location: Igorot Park, Camp John Hay, Baguio 2600, Benguet
