MELT: Affordable Steak Place in Camp John Hay by Chef Michael Ferrer

By Abigail Javellana

Baguio: Melt

MELT by Chef Michael Ferrer is an affordable steakhouse inside Ayala Technohub in Camp John Hay, Baguio. They use high-quality meat products imported from the US, Australia, and New Zealand, sourced from the chef's brother who happens to be the steak supplier in Baguio.

It's named Melt because the chef envisions the steaks to melt in your mouth.

Aside from their steaks, you can also check out their deconstructed versions of classic Pinoy favorites–Calderetta, Kare-Kare, and Salpicao.

Here are our personal recommendations from Melt…

CHAYA: Still the Best Japanese Restaurant in Baguio! (Revisited 2016)

By Abigail Javellana

Baguio: Chaya

Chaya is our go-to place for Japanese food in Baguio. Owned by a Josef Moselina and his Japanese wife Sonoko Taguchi, the homey resto would make anyone skeptical to find delicious, authentic Japanese dishes being served in such a typical cottage home.

This should be no surprise, however, as the wife's cooking experience comes from growing up in her grandma and aunt's restaurant in Japan.

Here's what we liked from our revisit to Chaya…

BEST OF BOHOL 2016: 7 New Awesome Experiences You Should not Miss!

The 2013 earthquake may have caused serious damage to Bohol’s popular churches and structures, but that doesn’t stop tourists from coming as there is more to Bohol than its Chocolate Hills, cute tarsiers, and old churches. 

Join us as we rediscover Bohol through Stand Up Paddling (SUP) across the Loboc River, fearlessly Bike Zipping across a picturesque view of the Chocolate Hills, Dolphin watching in Pamilacan, Snorkeling in Balicasag Reef Sanctuary, and enjoying the beautiful beaches of Anda.

Here are some of the new and familiar places we love in Bohol that will make you want to revisit…

Henann Resort BoholHenann Resort Bohol is the biggest luxury resort in Panglao island, with a 6.5-hectare property sitting on the shores of Bohol’s famous Alona Beach.

Henann is named after its founder Dr. Henry Chusuey and his wife Ann (hence the name Hen-Ann), who acquired the former Alona Palms Beach Resort and surrounding areas.

We love the resort because of its family-friendly vibe, multiple pools, white sand beachfront along Alona beach, and sumptuous dinner buffet.

BOHOL: Dolphin Watching, Balicasag and Isola di Francesco Tour Experience (Must Read!) @BellevueResort

Bellevue Resort
One of the must-do activities in Bohol is watching the dolphins swim in their natural habitat near Pamilacan Island. 

It’s recommended to get the Bohol Island hopping tour from the resort you’re staying at, but you can also book a boat elsewhere depending on how big your group is. We prefer the island hopping speed boats used by Bellevue Resort, which are ideal for getting close to the dolphin action and are much faster than the bancas. 

Here is a photo essay of our dolphin watching and island hopping experience…

However, we all know there is a lot more to this beautiful region than what we can find in your typical Pasalubong bag.

Here’s what every traveler in Ilocos should experience before returning home…
