Last month’s #6

Being at the center of the city, Vizco’s has been a signature Baguio restaurant to visit. It’s a café famous for its cakes which are freshly made and affordable. It’s for people trying to find a restaurant that will get you your money’s worth. It’s not for guests who want a spacious place to eat at. We recommend their wildly popular Strawberry Short Cake, topped with fresh strawberries. Our insider tip: It opened a sister restaurant in Camp John Hay’s Technohub called Photo Fog Café.

Choco-late de Batirol is a Filipino garden cafe that’s said to be the home of the best hot chocolate in the Philippines. It’s for ambient breakfasts or a chilly afternoon merienda date. It’s not for late nights and drinking sessions. We recommend the Suman, Turon, and Red Egg and Tomato Salad. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their customer-recommended orange flavored tsokolate as well. Our insider tip is to visit on weekends for live acoustic music. Fun Fact: Batirol is a traditional wooden rod used to make the tsokolate thick, hence the name Choco-late de Batirol.

When a restaurant gets back-to-back recognition in Miele’s Best Restaurants in Asia Awards, you know you have to see what all the fuss is about. Hill Station is a fusion of European, American, and Asian cooking helping you explore the world through its plates and the casual Baguio-style cabin setup. It’s perfect for family dinners and intimate gatherings over 5-star dishes. It’s not for those relying on a tight budget. We recommend the Cambodian Coriander & Garlic Chicken and any of their signature desserts. Here’s a fun fact: Much has been said regarding Casa Vallejo’s ghostly apparitions in the area, as it was an old colonial structure in the early 1900s.

When talking about Baguio’s must-try restaurants, Café by the Ruins has always been part of the list – serving natural and local ingredients that embody its way of cooking that is distinctly BaguioIt’s for people who want to taste authentic local dishes that tell something about the region’s culture. It’s not for guests who have a deep stomach and a bottomless appetite. We recommend the Pinikpikan, which is chicken soup used in rituals by natives, and the Baguio Bagnet with Padas bagoong, tomato relish, and lime. Our insider tip is to try getting their guava preserve jam as pasalubong from your long weekend adventures.

Amare La Cucina is an Italian restaurant famous for its traditional slow-cooked pizza and baby back ribs. Though it’s not in the heart of the city, a lot of people still visit the restaurant for its uniqueness and their traditional way of cooking. It’s for Italian cuisine lovers who want to try novelty pizzas in Baguio. It’s not for people who want multiple cups of rice to go with their meal. We recommend the White Pizza, Wagyu Pizza and the Foie Gras with Truffle Oil pizza. They have so many unique flavors. Our insider tip is that they even have a nutella-based pizza to satisfy your sweet tooth.
