ROSE BOWL Steakhouse and Restaurant is the de facto Chinese food of choice when you are in Baguio. It was known as Rice Bowl from 1945 to 1968 and renamed Rose Bowl on March 7, 1969 by Artemio and Lourdes Nang.

To ensure the original high quality of the food they serve, they decided not to franchise but decided to put up a lone branch in Bauang, La Union operated by their son, Dr. Peter Paul R. Nang. 

Their food is Cantonese Chinese cuisine served in family-sharing portions.

When we ask foodies for a recommendation on where to eat and stay in Baguio, LE MONET is often recommended not only for its boutique hotel's affordable luxury features but also for the Breakfast Buffet created by Chef Robby Goco for Dinelli Gourmet.

LE MONET by Hotel Rembrandt was designed in honor of the great French painter Claude Monet who became famous for his colorful and realistic landscapes. It is one of the few hotels that still enjoy the luxury of being surrounded by stately Baguio pine trees. Located in Camp John Hay it was opened to the public in time for Baguio’s February 2012 Panagbenga Festival
