CAFÉ BY THE RUINS DUA: Best Breakfast in Baguio 2016!

Untitled

CAFÉ BY THE RUINS DUA on Upper Session Road is the newest extension of the original establishment in front of the Baguio City Hall. While it still keeps many of the old favorites from the first branch, Dua’s menu is more dynamic and seasonal.

The restaurant’s reputation for great breakfasts is unintentional, says Feliz Perez, 2nd generation owner of Café by the Ruins Dua. She insists, however, their early operation hours and hearty servings may have contributed to this.

Let's look at how to “Ruin” your breakfast…

HILL STATION: Revisiting an Old Favorite of Baguio in 2016!

Untitled

Over the years, HILL STATION has established itself as one of the top restaurants in Baguio (via Trip Advisor). Awarded as one of Asia’s Finest Restaurants by the Miele Guide in 2011-2013, Hill Station is celebrated for its eclectic array of Asian and Continental cuisine.

Owner Mitos Benitez-Yñiguez is no stranger to the restaurant business. She got her culinary know-how from her mother, the brains behind the famous Mario’s of Baguio. As a cook, Mitos has always been about good food. It isn't just her extensive library of cookbooks that shaped the Hill Station menu but also the gastronomic techniques and experiences picked up from her trips around the world.

This 2016, Team OAP revisits this beloved local favorite to see how it’s been doing…

I've heard yummy stories about Chef Vicky's private dining in Baguio from foodies raving about the experience. We met Chef Vicky in Mercato Centrale, with her stall selling her yummy goodies from Baguio, when we first opened in 2010.

She offers an 8-course, French-inspired, strictly-by-reservation private dining in her lovely home in Baguio. She only accepts strictly one group at a time, with a minimum of 6 persons.

There is no menu, so just be prepared to be surprised with the 3-hour, 8-course Degustation Meal.

VERDICT

Mama's Table gets our two thumbs up. Highly Recommended! :)

Your Baguio foodie trip would not be complete if you don't get to experience Chef Vicky's food, warm and kid-friendly hospitality and authentic Baguio Home ambiance.

(Tip: You can bring your own wine with no corkage fee.) 

Can you share your own experience at Mama's Table?

C BOUTIQUE HOTEL and the Flavors of Baguio Food Tour

C Botique Day 1-54.jpg
C BOUTIQUE HOTEL is a homey 17-room boutique hotel by Charley Antonio. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood near Wright Park and is walking distance from the Mines View area.

You can think of it as a nice home away from home when you are in Baguio. One of the things I like in C Boutique is waking up to a yummy breakfast experience. This summer, Our Awesome Planet collaborated with C Boutique to enhance the Baguio experience with the Flavors of Baguio tour.

Here is our C Boutique and Flavors of Baguio Experience:

HILL STATION: One of the BEST Restaurants in Baguio! (Revisited)

Read First: HILL STATION & Mt. Cloud Bookshop, Baguio

Hill Station-84.jpg

HILL STATION is one of the best restaurants in Baguio showcasing the different flavors and influences of Mitos Benitez-Yñiquez’s  travel all around Europe, America and Asia. It won back-to-back recognition in the Miele's Best Restaurants in Asia awards.

It's one of my favorite restaurants in the Philippines because you can explore the world through her food with fine-dining quality but with a casual Baguio log-cabin ambiance.

We want to revisit Hill Station to savor their meat dishes especially at night.

TAM-AWAN Village is a reconstructed Cordillera village showcasing the traditional Ifugao Huts, and Baguio's art and culture scene. It was established by National Artist BenCab in 1998 together with Chanum Foundation to promote the local Baguio Artists. Tam-awan is a local word which means "vantage point". 

You can check out the permanent and occasional art exhibits from various Baguio artists. Also, artists are always available to sketch your portrait. There is a Cafe where you can get a taste of Cordillera flavors. Lastly, you can immerse yourself in the culture by staying overnight in the village in one of the authentic Ifugao huts.
