Best Restaurants in Baguio: Cafe by the Ruins

Image

There are restaurants that one must visit.   Cafe by the Ruins is one of those restaurants very much embodies Baguio’s cultural vibe.

Image

A place for artists, cooks, foodies and families. These soft sculptures here by done one of Baguio’s local artists on exhibit.

Image

A restaurant that brings together fresh food, great memories, and  cultural heritage.

Image

We love the interior finish.

Image

We liked the open style kitchen

Image

Even the menu looks tastefully done.

Image

Baguio is known for fresh vegetables.  Salads are a must to try in this establishment.  My favorite is the  Baguio Bounty Salad.

Image

This salad is one of my favorites.  Shrimps, poached chicken, strawberries, watercress and lettuce with strawberry vinaigrette.

Image

This is their version of sinigang.

Image

No meal is complete without the famed purple hued mountain rice which my kids actually liked.

Image

Cafe by the Ruins’ take on crispy bagnet which my kids liked.  The bagoong siding is really salty though.

Image

The spicy bangus didn’t live up to it’s name. Kids didn’t like this and it’s wasn’t spicy enough for the adults in the group.

Image

This chicken celery risotto is basically a creamy chicken celery dish with plain rice on the side.

Image

This is my favorite vegetarian dish.  Three mushroom crepe made of button, shiitake and oyster mushrooms  with a creamy white sauce.

Image

Crispy Tilapia dish which my kids also liked.

Image

The not to be missed Chocolate de Agua, a mug of bittersweet chocolate tablea dissolved in water, the Mexican way, with a touch of sugar.  A perfect ending to a meal during a rainy afternoon.

Image

I couldn’t help taking a picture of the waiter with the giant umbrella.  I wish more restaurants /hotels in Baguio would think of providing their customers with this kind of umbrellas 🙂
