Baguio: Cafe by the Ruins
During our 2nd day in Baguio, The Memet and I decided to have breakfast in Cafe by the Ruins. Not knowing where it was, we decided to hop in our car and drive around while looking for its location using the internet on our mobile phones.
As it turned out, it was only spitting distance from the hotel we were staying in (Holiday Park Hotel). It's right beside Eurotel, near a turnabout. We could've walked from Holiday Park to Cafe by the Ruins in less than 5 minutes. Haha!
Anyway, we were able to squeeze our car into their tiny parking area that was already pretty much occupied.
Again, I'm no food blogger, so I cannot offer you a comprehensive review on how their food was. I can, however, share some photos with you. :p
Their menu was pretty unique in shape and content. The prices? A bit on the steep side if you're used to having breakfast at McDonald's, like The Memet and myself. Haha!
The Memet ordered fried bangus with salted eggs and tomatoes and organic rice. He said it was "okay". He liked the fish best. Said it tasted fresh and not unpleasantly fishy. Hehe!
I read somewhere that Cafe by the Ruins' champorado was really good. If we weren't going to spend the day exploring, I'd've ordered that. But because I'm lactose intolerant, I didn't want to risk it. LOL! You might want to try it though, if you're in the area. :)
Budget per person is around P200-P250.
Cafe by the Ruins is located on # 23 Chuntug Street, Baguio City. Biggest landmark is a Eurotel branch. You can also visit their Facebook Page if you feel like it.
