Going Home and other Baguio treats

We headed home in the morning and took the Marcos Highway route, we love the scenery. This is the real “fog you” experience. We were above the clouds. Amazing!

Here I included must-try places and food in your next visit to Baguio.

Luisa’s Café along Session Road – I love their Siopao, the filling is so tasty, you will forget about the other siopao you have tried. We also love their steamed cake, not too sweet but tasty.

Café by the Ruins (Abanao Ext. near Kisad) – we were not able to dine here during this visit, the place is packed but if it weren’t for our aching stomachs we could have waited a little longer and enjoyed the nice ambience and the must-try pinikpikan – one fo their specialties.

Emilrose Grille (Scout Barrio) – when in the vicinity of Camp John Hay or going to PMA, you will pass by EmilRose along Scout Barrio. The food is comparable to Dencio’s and Gerry’s but the price is value for money. The serving is enough for big groups. Sarap!

Benguet Coffee (Baguio City Market) – One of our companions, had to buy 7 kilos of Benguet Coffee beans and we can’t blame her because just smelling the aroma of the bags from our room, gives you a idea how good it must be. Tita Joyce will have to invite us to her place to try the coffee.

Sagada Oranges – 3 big pieces is already 2 kilograms. The huge orange (slightly smaller than pomelo) tastes sweet and juicy, but the best part is it’s being seedless. There are lots of Sagada Orange vendors roaming around the tourist spots like Mines View and Botanical Garden that offers free taste and you wouldn’t want to miss it. Of course, the Sagada Orange is worth bringing to Manila, you have to buy at least 10 kilos.

SM City Baguio – who would have missed the big mall in the middle of the city. This SM version of Henry Sy suits the location and weather of the city. The mall doesn’t need aircon. The top floor and al fresco-dining restos offer good views of the city. Sometimes you get to see and feel the fog up to your sleeves. A must-try malling experience.
