5 Restaurants in Baguio that are Worth the Wait

With Baguio being crowded by the minute, you will definitely have to fall in line in most restaurants that you visit. The queue takes more than an hour sometimes, but let me assure you that these restaurants are worth the wait.

1. Good Taste

If you have a party of more than four, then you will maximize your budget and leave with a full stomach if you go here. Not only do you have every Filipino dish imaginable, when I was here I ate like three dishes, but the serving and the price is great. Think serving for two but the price of one.

They have a huge space and can accommodate a lot of guests, service is efficient too. They also sell bread and different pastries.

Craft beer seems to be a thing these days and why not? With a lot of possible creations and mixtures, not to mention the movement of using fruits and herbs in brewing beer, we're all just excited to taste something new. And here at the tasting room, they have a lot of selections that they brew themselves! They even have a strawberry beer. How cool is that?

If you want to pay for the ambiance and the food, Cafe by the Ruins is for you. Their restaurant will make you forget you're in Baguio. Although compared to Good Taste and Baguio Craft Brewery, this restaurant is pricey. But, the food is really good. Try Bagnet rice and Tapa flakes. They also serve coffee from beans that are grown in the next town.

Conclusion

Filipinos love to eat more than they like to sing karaoke. So it won't be a surprise if you visit the country and find a carinderia or a food stall or even a roving food cart every second that you walk on the street. Try each and every delicacy and you would know why Filipinos fill their stomach like there's no tomorrow.
