best places to eat in baguio

Baguio is one of the coldest destinations in the Philippines. It’s frequented by many especially during the summer not only for its cool weather but because the city on top of the mountains has a lot to offer. It’s a perfect destination for tourists and locals alike. Strawberry picking and visiting parks and museums are just a few of the activities in Baguio. They also have a good taste in food which brings us to these 9 restaurants that you need to see in the summer capital of the Philippines.

1. 50s Diner

Inside there is memorabilia and posters of pop icons, as well as a jukebox. They have a kind of 50s atmosphere, but not really. 50s Diner is more of a restaurant than a diner. It’s quite spacious. And what sets them apart from other restaurants is their huge servings. It’s a good value for the money because they offer affordable and delicious food. Visit them on weekdays and during lunch; they have too many customers during weekends.

Eve’s Garden offers a set meal: soup, salad, main dish, and dessert. It costs about 15 USD for adults and 7 USD for a child. The meal is a variety of different organic vegetables with light dressings. For the main dish, it has to be chosen prior to making the reservation. They have delicious food and the coffee is really good.

Why organic food? Tita Eve, the owner, moved to Baguio and built an organic garden for her husband diagnosed with cancer. She wants to also promote healthy living so she decided to open a restaurant. Apart from food, the other best thing about this place is the location; it’s overlooking the mountains. And the food they’re offering? You’ll forget that you’re a meat-lover. The greens are just so overwhelming.
