BAGUIO CRAFT BREWERY: Beer and Food Pairing Experience! @AwesomeBaguio

By Abigail Javellana

Baguio Craft Brewery

BAGUIO CRAFT BREWERY is Baguio's first and only craft brewery with freshly-brewed beer from 18 rotating taps.

The owner, local Christopher Ordas, began this passion for brewing beer in his own garage in Canada. He later expanded his knowledge by studying the German and West Coast styles of brewing in Munich, Prague, and San Diego.

The beer and food pairing menu brings another level of taste to beer lovers and converts who enjoy both. The menu is a collaboration between Edmark Bustos of Amare and the whole Baguio Brewery Team of Orando Tenorio Jr., Arnold Miguel, and Shellah Yzanne Merced.

Team OAP was back at Baguio Craft Brewery to check it out…

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…

AMARE: Best Brick Oven Pizza in Baguio! #AwesomeBaguio

By Abigail Javellana

amare

Amare La Cucina is a Neapolitan-style pizzeria in Baguio founded by a local, Edmark Bustos.

The name means "to love a kitchen" in Italian. Edmark, who is no trained chef, shows this through his passion for cooking and experimentation. This drove him to open his own restaurant, which first started in his home until it became the go-to place for good pizza in Baguio.

The name AMARE is also a deliberate combination of the Bustos siblings–Alvin, MARianne, and Edmark.

Here's what we liked at Amare…

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…

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…
