I’ll try to make this short and sweet, guys, because I’m not feeling well. (Fingers crossed, this is not the one time, big time sick for 2019 or ever. *hee)

Well, savory. Savory is more like it when we’re talking about Thai cuisine. Let’s see, a short and savory feature.

A couple months back, artist Sil was painting a mural again. He said it was for an up and coming restaurant. Told us, too, that he’d inform us as soon as they opened, but he did us one better when he got us in to the place for it’s first day of operations. (Thank you so much, Sil! Couldn’t insert our photo here though. Darn dead hard drive. =S)  So happy to be reunited with my Thai food favorites … and well made dishes at that. (Nice one, Chef!)

Som tam – papaya salad =D

There were a number of selections on their opening day menu and of course, we went for the resto’s namesake: Som tam.=D Fabulous textures of the ingredients plus zingy flavored dressing. Oh man, neither Race nor Sil (who was an initiate to dishes from Thailand) could keep me from sipping ever drop of that dressing.

Tom yum gai – hot and sour chicken soup ^^,

Race and I wouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to get tom yum. A nicely flavored soup with the minute spice of chili getting caught in our throats. Gave my lungs a good jolt of a cough there.  =b Even just the soup, makes me happy.

We were served green mango salad with crispy fish, pad Thai noodles, and curry as well. (All of which we ordered again when I finally returned with my foodie posse, Ate Beth and Karla.) At our first Somtam visit, washed this grand opening lunch down with refreshing tamarind iced tea and lemon grass pandan. =)

Yum pla dook foo – crispy cat fish with green mango salad (“,)

As soon as X+1 got home, I told my foodie lovies and you, my foodie friends on Facebook and a quick mention on a menu post.  P3 complete yesterday, (Yes, OA rain day. Glad for it, because yey, flushing water! =)) But gosh, the timing. Just when we were about to set out, down it all came.) everyone was ecstatic to be having Thai foodstuff in food trip city, Baguio City, again.

Thai red and green milk tea

Anyway, we’ve arrived and our first order without asking for consensus was the yum pla duk foo … with more of that zingy sauce. One dish, sour, sweet, salty, spicy with a fun shredded catfish crisps, we can eat this all day. ^^,

To sooth our palates, we had Thai milk tea. (Who knew there was a green version too. How pretty.) Only to set it a-tingling once again with chicken tom yum. Perfect time for it, if you ask me. In just a split second, our tummies were warmed. *contented sigh

Pad Thai – stir fried noodles =)

Like the kitchen suddenly went on fast forward, our other orders then came out one after the other. We went with the pad Thai before everything else so we could taste every facet of it. My, my, that fried egg topping (looked like tangled brown mongo sprouts) was an interesting feeling in the gob. Shrimp peeled and de-veined, all we had to do was shove the fork into our mouths. Wee! Flavor not intense enough for you? Check out the condiments beside the plate, sugar, fish sauce, chili powder, and vinegar with chili slices.

A pitcher of house blend tamarind iced tea

As luscious the flavor profile of our dinner spread is, we needed more libations to calm our taste buds. Tamarind tea to the rescue.

Bagoong rice, is not just rice fried in shrimp paste here. It had many other toppings, it could be a meal all on its own. I thought back to a month ago, how Sil, Race and I went with plain rice to pair with the green curry. *hihi

It’s places like these that get me to break the hiatus. =)

Roasted pork belly (“,)

[If only for a little while. I’m still reeling from the loss of a year and a third’s worth of photos and other documents from the death of my hard drive, you see. (Again, if you know somebody who can at the very least retrieve files from a nondetectable hard disk, please, please send them my way, foodie friends. Otherwise, ) I have no material for the blog … as in photos to show for what we’ve since checked off our resto list.]

^^, (Roasted hanging chicken: P220 regular size, P250 jumbo. Roasted pork belly: P140 at 1/4 of a kilo)

(Back to today’s feature.) I have here, a notable edibles provider at our friendly neighbors in La Trinidad.

L-Brothers Roasted Food Products

We met Chef Reden at the  Kekkan Festival last year, as one of the judges at the food contests. (“,) It sure took awhile for X+1 to have a taste of his creations. Finally, we got to the roasting shop yesterday.

Actually, we were there the day before yesterday, but everything was sold out by then. We left the store that day, just our noses filled with the aroma of roasted meats that lingered in the air of the store. =D

Roasted hanging chicken. (Well, it’s not hanging now, but chopped and resting on the foil. *tee hee)

We came with the roasted hanging chicken in mind, but then we saw porchetta (yes, that’s how I called it that time=b) was also available. We decided to get 250 grams to try, too. \m/

When we got home, we realized there was no rice cooked yet. Ah, killing wait. (Time goes by so slowly.♪ ♫) I decided to take a pinch from the roasted rolled pork (that piece encircled in red in the photo below *hihi). What flavor the lean had even without the sauce! Zing, went my tastebuds. The skin = crunch tasty. The oil that stuck to my fingers was so delicious, I couldn’t help but lick.  Immediately, I kicked myself for not getting a bigger serving of the pork belly roast. =))

250 grams of roasted pork belly … and the 20 grams kinurot as a first taste encircled =))

When we opened the thick foil wrap of the chicken, it had since let out quite an amount of its juices. We used that as an herby drizzle to the our rice. The meat was juicy and had a nice mild (bay leaf) flavor. We ate with gusto as the fowl’s roasted fragrance drove our furry lovies crazy in the killing wait for manna from table heaven to fall. ^^,

Let’s have a look at that roasted pork belly again, before we go, shall we?

We’ll get you that size soon, pork belly. *tahaha

Gathered enough material for a menu laden feature, afoodionados.

=D

Brace yourself, it’s a long one (in photos). Weee!

Newly Checked Off 1.) Bellyful Seafoods and Snacks

Right beside where a friend of mine is; [he sells eggs and rice as his livelihood, and to help him out, I get eggs from him. (I call them long distance eggs. *heehaha) You might want to get some from him, too? =D] is a small resto offering seafood in tasty, tasty sauce.

Scroll down to the end of this post to get a look-see of the little wok, my friend and I feasted on, as we caught up with each other’s lives. This seafood restaurant also offers unlimited crabs for P699 on specific days, so stay updated by following their Facebook page.

2.) Handzamess Music Cafe

Great pigar pigar, T-bone and gravy, for sure. What a unique taste to gravy, as well. \m/

Pigar pigar ala Hanzamess =)

3.) Honey Lime Fil-Mex Food to Go

This little food stop has been pink on our list for ages. Finally, got to try their budget friendly bites for the students … and the thrifty in the vicinity.

4.) Just Bake Coz

Honeylime’s neighbor. More than baking, they’re also just cooking coz at their store. *hihi

5.) King and Queen Cantina

Student eats with unli rice. Oh yeah!

6.) Koresto K Flavors Buffet

At P350 … soooo many fun side dishes, I easily got distracted from the samgyupsal and went on a banchan (and soup) buffet. =b

Side dish, soup, and samgyeopsal buffet at K Flavors for me. ^^,

7.) Kusina ni Tsong at Food Hub

There sure is a quick turnaround of concessionaires at Food Hub. Replacing Mang Bolex is Kusina ni Tsong with a somewhat similar list of good eats.

8.) Mango Mango

Just in time for summer, wouldn’t you say, my foodie friend? Cool off with mango juice and/or mango infused AND topped soft serve ice cream. Nyum!

Another Notable Edibles/ Good Eats by Delivery feature is in order.

Aww. Thanks for the little note, Sir Pedro. =D

As we’ve just discovered … Well, our eager beaver foodie FB messenger pal, Sir Dan, discovered (Thanksies, as always. ^^,) …

Afters by Pedro’s

They’re an online store whose main offering is Japanese cheesecake.

You know, those cheese cakes that look and feel a lot like cotton (but surely taste better than cotton =b)?

While Pedro’s can serve your order up the next day, if you make it within their order taking window (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.), I opted to get my cheese keki treats at the beginning of the weekend.

Classic Japanese cheesecake (“,)

With a number of flavors to choose from, I had to weigh my options carefully. Hhmmm, hhmmm. I decided to go full on Japanese by getting the classic and matcha. (Price ranges from P230 to P250.)

So TGIF arrived. [Please note that Pedro’s Desserts is partnered with a food delivery service, and there’s a separate charge for the delivery (P99). (This little detail wasn’t mentioned on their page, so kigtot my heart a tiny wee bit. *tahaha)]

Matcha Japanese cheesecake ^^,

In the unboxing, I was greeted by a speck confetti of confectioners’ sugar. *hihi Like sand, it got everywhere. =D (Even before I tried to blow some away to reveal the Pedro’s Afters imprint on the cakes.) When I transferred it to the plate for slicing, it wasn’t as jiggly as I imagined it would be because it was already cool. (and heaven knows, I was so ready to ‘get jiggLy with it’. =)) )

Anyhoo, it was dense, especially the matcha flavored one, as Race likes cakebread (or any dessert) to be. Of the two, the classic was more fluffy, melt in our mouths cheesy, but what a nice green tea taste on the green colored keki. (“,)

In a flash, the cakes were gone. The only thing we were left with was the paper lining at the bottom of our sweet treat … and even then, our furry lovies, were gunning for it. *puppy dog eyes and waggy tails

=)

Say hello to metro Baguio’s version of WALL-E, guys.

DALL-E (Dessert Allocation Load Lifter – Earth) Hello there, cutie!

I’ll dub thee, DALL-E though for his main job at this newly opened cafe. =)

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

So Thunder, our eatsploring mobile was put to the test again, with the long trip we made to Tuba, Marcos Highway. Our aim: The robot cafe called Zaxxun. When we arrived, we were met with Minion trashcan. #AlwaysAdorable Going up the stairs, we passed our reflections on the bronzed glass window … Just the right spot to check how you look. How’s my hair? Not too helmet hair, I hope.  Windblown hair? *teehee

We lingered for a while beside the counter choosing dishes from the menu. If the place is busy, you get a calling system thingamajig that will light up and buzz to inform you when your order is ready for pick up at the counter. Otherwise, the (human) attendants will bring your order to you.

Queue wireless calling system

Which is what happened when we were the only patrons at the cafe at that moment. ^^, Up the indoor staircase, we walked through the different dining sections with robot decor, the robot mantra, the Zaxxun mindset and creed which means simply, discipline.

Stiff neck in the name of getting a mirror shot. I can’t help it with ceiling mirrors. *hee

It being a nice day in March, we took the table outside. Crunchy chewy cookies were delivered to our table for starters and as we sat there, we smelled our main dishes being cooked at the kitchen below the deck. Wee!

Cookie starters =)

While waiting, I went around some more, noting little details. From the topmost level of the building, you have a fantastic 360 view of the area. It’s a great place to watch the sunset, too, which was fantastic yesterday; a nice, blinding, orange orb sinking behind the hills in the distance. Breathtaking!

Little details in and around the Zaxxun building: Emergency light with drag queen lashes, the restroom (with a bathtub inside) labeled as the thinking room. *hihi

When our orders were finally delivered to our table, the first thing I noticed was the pickled ginger/gari on both plates. Race’s pick as a tasty delicious barbecue beef sandwich. It was so tasty, the mayo was not even needed. On the side, banana chips for a texture change when needed. =D

Barbecue beef sandwich ^^,

My sundried tomato pesto pasta was a well made pasta. I can’t help but think that I should’ve gone with the bacon mushroom bolognese though. Anyway, next visit.  It was an impressive plate with three bread slices … too toasted crunchy for my taste since it makes it a bit of a challenge to wipe the olive oil settling at the bottom of the dish, and I don’t want to waste a drop of that healthy oil. *hihi

Sundried tomato pesto pasta =D

We ate our savory choices somewhat quickly, in anticipation of the cafe’s piece de resistance: The robot dessert server. #Excited

EVA delivered to us a sweet treat of coffee jelly (the jelly was bouncy sago). A taste explosion that might have been a little too sweet with the perfectly ripe mango and choco gear that melted into the warm coffee mixture after a few seconds. Thankfully,  we still had gari, pangtangal umay.  Our dessert gave me enough sugar and coffee to sugar crash early in the evening, and then be eyes wide open and brain awake in the late evening. =b

Finally, it’s happened to me … #90sDanceMusic

But, of course, callos (“,)

Casa Marcos … right in front of my face. My feelings, can’t describe it. ♪ ♪

Ahh, that’s a stretch. I can describe it.  =b In a word, “ecstatic” … that I finally stepped into the threshold of this old house turned restaurant.  For the number of times I passed by Outlook Drive, from the passenger seat of a van, then behind Race on a motorcycle, what I always saw is the house beside it. Who knew the beauty that is the Craft 1945 house sitting high up on the hill.

Trees around the Brewery Casa

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

There’s nothing like being in Outlook to drink in the early morn. The sunlight has a different way of shining here, it seems to me, filtered through the needles of the many pine trees around. =) I relished in it while we waited for the blessing to mark the grand opening of Craft/Casa.

When soil makes a curvier butt than you. =b

There’s lots to see in and around the property. One of the most notable, as you come up the driveway, are the jeans used as pots for some fern. Soil does fill up shapely jeans very well, don’t you think? *hihi

Blessing

Right beside it is a staircase leading to the terraced al fresco set up of the Craft Brewery branch. If you walk in front of the house to the other side, there’s a huge parking space that can accommodate a number of vehicles. \m/

In and around the casa – lots of places to chill, indoor and outdoor. Wide parking space

Inside the house, there’s two floors with different sections offering ample seating for huge parties you might want to hold here. One facet on the second floor that amused me are the doors to the loos. I’m thinking it’s a great conversation piece. ^^, I’ll leave out a photo of that from here and encourage you to go see for yourself when you finally make a visit.

The Queen and I

After the eventful morning, we celebrated with soup, salad, tapas, chicken, paella, and a lemonade mocktail for lunchies. I don’t believe , I’ve ever had mushroom soup like this. So many mushroom bits, it made me happy. =D

Mocktails ^^,

The tapas like tips a la pobre and baked clams topped with cheese (I didn’t see that on the menu), we ate with the loaded rice of the seafood paella. We also had Craft 1945 pollo, and Caesar salad. I enjoyed their lunch drink so much, I asked for another glass when lunch ended.

Obligatory shot in front of the Casa Marcos mural. Happy to be gorged. =))

Our day wasn’t over yet, however. We came back in the evening … what Sir Chris referred to as ‘when the real party starts’. Wee!

Eat, Drink, Chill

Craft 1945 by night \m/

What a sight the Craft’s and Casa Marcos’ new house is in the evening; the warm glow streaming from the windows, the sparkly lights over the

A really quick menu and Baguio dining update this time, guys.

Mowdel ng saksakan. Feeling Vanna White. =))

I’m feeling overly sentimental because it just sunk in now, on their last day today, that Baguio’s first ever Jollibee is going bye bye forever. I have so many memories to recall and reminisce from the time I worked there as a store marketing assistant, methinks, it’s going to fill pages and pages if I write it out. (Even if I’m an amnesiac. =b)

Newly Checked Off 1.) Gray’s at Food Hub

Polpog (“,)

While this replaced Mehikano and I feel like I haven’t gotten my fill of their herbed burritos, (I hope they’re just moving somewhere else.), Gray’s has a great selection to contribute to the entire Food Hub offering. X+1 thoroughly enjoyed their afforda-eats: Bakareta, pulpog, and coffee jelly. *nomnomnom

2.) Grill Station by Kadis

Hearing the name “Kadis“, I was mighty tempted to get beef caldereta. *heehaha Luckily, our attendant was quick to list out the new foodstuff that we could get our chompers on: Taiwan chicken, liempo, and Cuban sandwich . (Bakareta will always be there. =D)

Nyum, chicken, no need for gravy (though the gravy on the side was also delish, I could use it as sabaw on rice); nyum, liempo, with or without their vinegar blend dip; a well made sandwich. =) Everything  we washed down with Nescafe frappes  like dulce de leche and complimentary fun hot choco this resto on soft opening is putting on a test run.

Pink, pink! \m/

3.) Nainer’s Diner weekend buffet

I didn’t get to see their regular menu yet, but I just have to put Nainer’s weekend buffet here since it’s one of the most enjoyable I’ve seen so far. ^^, Ah, taho kayo dyan. There’s freshly blended fruit shakes … and … and a little shawarma, too. This and more at P179, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

A section of the weekend buffet table. ^^,

4.) The Terminal

Taking a part of where JB3 used to be is our replacement to Zola, another 24 hour hang out serving substantial eats, complete with WiFi … and outlets at the tables … Exactly where you’ll (mostly) need it: Near the bus terminal. \m/

Updated Menu Hunggop Kayu at Food Hub

They have more munchies and drinkables to offer today. Wee!

Baguio Country Club Food Camp Panagbenga 2019

BCC Food Camp is on again for Flower Fest 2019 with a new batch of concessionaires like House of Aerith Mae bringing amusing ice cream flavors, Hansy’s and their binalot specials, Balajadia Kitchenette, and Ongkoleyt. (“,) Weekday operation time is 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. It’s 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekdends and holidays. No entrance fee. Pet friendly.

From the pretty straightforward packaging, you know what I have here.

(“,)

But you’ll never guess what kind of pizza is in that box. (More than pizza, today’s Notable Edibles / Good Eats by Delivery subject does have other foodstuff to offer. \m/)

Uncle Jon’s Food Delivery

Done with the pizza flavor guessing?

It’s creamy lasagna pizza.

I know right? Uncle Jon has lasagna on their food list too (along with ribs and wings) but I thought I’d kill two birds, you know. =) No pasta at all in or on the pie as I imagined it would (Think deep dish .. but not that deep =b) but every other component of lasagna, the filling is there from the ground pieces of meat to the herbs to the cheese to the bechamel sauce. It made the pizza a thin but squishy pizza, it was so creamy. Ahh, also of note is that even cheese melt on top.

As for taste, it was a sweet-ish pizza for me but as always nothing that a dash of salt … and a vinegar-y hot sauce for the slices to suit my taste buds just right. All in all, this is a memorable flat bread that I’d order again (After I try the other flavors Uncle has). ^^,

Cheesy lasagna pizza =D

Together with this pizza, we got flame grilled burgers. What a wondrous sight to behold when we opened the box. I forgot it came with fries, and these were wavy wedges that embodied the tagline of Mentos in the olden days, “Crunchy outside, chewy inside”. *tongue click

It was hard not to focus on what was in the middle of the bread buns because it’s an impressive looking patty. Race noted, probably it had pork or chicken mixed in so it wasn’t as earthy gamy as beef regularly is. My better half likes gamy, but this, he didn’t mind at all. My brother liked it for its freshness. =D

When I took a bite, I had to wrestle a bit with the tensile bread.  “Makunat” is not necessarily bad when it comes to buns. Firm is just what you need to catch sauces and juices, and this beef burger’s got it. How they made that slice of tomato in there so juicy and so perfect with the mustard, I don’t know, but I’ll live without knowing, I’ll just eat and eat. *tahaha

Flame grilled burger ^^,

Do visit the delivery service‘s Facebook page for their menu and to get your advance orders in, afoodionados. The link’s down below. We might just be looking at the same page … I’m weighing options what to order next already. (I really held off getting something holiday season last year.) *hihi

We’re back at Krispy Kreme Baguio 1 with our fellow foodie blogging friends …

^^,

… at the invitation of Sir Dean of KK. (A different Dean to our Dean. *hihi)

Any day and everyday is a good day to celebrate.  At KKB, we gathered to celebrate how #EveryoneIsAnOriginal, what makes Baguio (and La Trinidad) unique, and of course, Panagbenga 2019. =)

Everyone is an original. \m/

[Thus, the flower outfit (and Race’s blossom pin to add to his “uniform”) … which I had to go ukay-ukay for, when I got the invite because I realized, even with a closet that needed a huge medieval wooden bar like the one they use to secure castle gates, I haven’t a single bright, posy patterned thing to wear. Oh my! (But I swear, the insoles of my shoes are flowery. *hee)

(“,)

(I have that knitted coat, sure, but I didn’t think the flowers on that popped. =D )]

The donut grazing table hounded.

From the grazing table of donuts that the KKdoughnut staff laid out for us, we were reunited with the double choco strawberry cake, first and foremost … looking a bit Christmas-y, placed side by side with one of this joint’s matcha selections.

Matcha doughnut and double chocolate strawberry cake donut. *jingle bells

Their matcha offering, both as munchies and beverages, get a fingertip kiss from me, all right. ^^,

Matcha coffee jelly: Coffee (jelly), tea (green tea powder) AND me (X).

Eiii, s’mores, that charred melted marshmallow topping is un-mis-takable. Paired with dark choco = nyum!

S’mores doughnut =D

Lots of (phone)cam clicking going on at events like these.

Photo ops, ops course. =b

It’s not all sweet and saccharine eatables at KK. There’s savory options (like Baked Creations Pull Aparts) and today, the juicy, juicy sausage roll in the photo below. The real name slipped my mind so that’s how we’ll call it for now. Pig (yes, just one) in a blanket works, too. *heehaha
