Baguio Food Trip: Searching for Good Food Beyond the Pine Trees Pt.1
Posted: April 29, 2017 11:30 AM

We’ve all been there. For some reason, we see ourselves in the middle of Baguio City with our friends. We just finished sightseeing, or just came from school, or even just finished watching a movie at the mall, and we are very hungry but have no idea where or what to eat. We could be tourists, locals, or even someone who just moved to Baguio last month. Fret not; however, for this guide right here would help you find deliciousness in the city that goes beyond the pine trees.

Tangay-Tangay Restaurant


I never thought there’s a life-changing dish until I tried Tangay-Tangay’s Lechon Kawali. It’s crispy, crunchy, and goes really well with the other Asian and Filipino dishes on their menu. Family and friends, a bucket of beer, and a whole evening of KTV would make dining here a must-have experience for any occasion.

If you can’t ever see yourself driving miles from the city center just to visit a restaurant, I hope Kalye Uno changes your mind. The serve authentic Cordilleran and Tagalog dishes with unexpected ingredients like horse meat, and if you haven’t tried it before, you should. This, plus their other staples like Sinampalukang Manok and deconstructed lumpia makes the drive to this hidden resto legit worth it.

Out of all the restaurants in this list, this one is the clear winner. People drive from all parts of Benguet just to go here and enjoy the views while eating good eats from a local chef. Be it to hang with friends or to have some alone time to think while looking at luscious greenery, Arca’s Yard is sure to accommodate you. Be ready to shell out some cash tho, their food’s a bit pricey, but for the experience and the taste, everything here is worth it.
