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


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…

CAVITE: LASA NG REPUBLIKA Food & Cultural Tour with Ige Ramos! (Photo Essay) @CaviteXpressway


CAVITE, home to the vanguards of the Philippine Revolution, is not known for its cuisine. Those from Manila often bypass the other towns of Cavite and instead, opt for a little R’n’R session at Tagaytay. You are mistaken if you think Cavite does not have any notable culinary treasures.

One of the reasons why Caviteño food is overlooked is because even local restaurants opt to serve westernized foods like pasta, pizza, and steaks—the reason being that Caviteño food can simply be made at home.

This makes tasting local cuisine more challenging for hungry visitors.

Chicken Pork Adobo Classic Recipe by the Adobo Queen, Nancy Reyes-Lumen!

A savory smell with a hint of acidity fills the air, followed by a gentle waft of garlic and aromatic bay leaf. You uncover the simmering pot and taste the sauce to make sure it’s sour enough. When the meat is tender and the sauce is just right, you allow it to cool and wait the next day to eat it just like your mother did—that’s if you can!

Nothing brings us the comfort of home quite like Adobo. The simplicity of this ubiquitous dish has lent to delicious variations across the nation; and most importantly, across our households. Ask any Filipino, and he or she will tell you about an heirloom Adobo recipe or two.



In an effort to make Adobo the national dish, Celebrity Cook, Masflex Ambassador, and Adobo Queen, Nancy Reyes-Lumen, celebrates the #AdoboMovement by making the classic Adobong Puti.

Here’s how…
