Hill Station BISTRO, Techno Hub, John Hay, Baguio City

Last December 19, 2013, Hill Station BISTRO opened at Techno Hub, John Hay, Baguio City. The restaurant was spacious and had a good open air balcony.

Meryenda at its finest! Only at Azalea Residences Baguio

Tradisyon Restaurant of Azalea Residences Baguio never fails to amuse me when it comes to great tasting food. I would like to give emphasis on Azalea Chocolate Pudding.

The chocolate cover with vanilla top created a great combination. It was not a melt to the mouth doughnut but it provided a great choco-vanilla pudding experience! Oh and the best … [Read more...]

Since it was located inside the hotel, we had to undergo strict bag and body inspection. The entrance of the restaurant was simple and we saw numerous tables elegantly fixed. Food was … [Read more...]
