"Must Eat" in Baguio City, Philippines

Who doesn't love strawberries?!?! Those red, big, sweet strawberries are so irresistible!!
 Best place to find strawberries in the Philippines is in Baguio City. Its 5 hours drive from Manila by car. Cool place to stay especially on December. Lots of people go there just to relax because of the weather there.
Well anyway, it is a MUST to try there strawberries. You could also go to the strawberry farm and pick your own strawberries.


try this STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM!! Made from real strawberries! These are called dirty ice cream, but don't worry they are not dirty :D


located at Session Road, Baguio City, Baguio City
Love their strawberry cake! Its so fluffy and light.


just look at those?! its so pretty! 

BEST RAISIN BREAD is here in Baguio Country Club

You will also find Little John's Convenience Outpost. This is located at Camp John Hay, Baguio City. We loved their Baby Back Ribs! its so soft! Perfectly cooked! Its also cheap! 

              Try there also the Cheese Fondue!

Here also inside the Camp John Hay is the famous chocolate drink. Its from pure chocolate! not the typical chocolate that you also have, this is different.
