During our trip to Sagada, we passed by Baguio City for a quick break or a meal. Though the visits here were quick, I made sure to enjoy every moment of it.

On our way to Sagada, we dropped by Great Taste Cafe and Restaurant for breakfast while waiting for the rest of Mei’s production crew.

The restaurant offers lots of options for their customers like rice toppings, favorite Filipino dishes, soups, pancit, mami, snacks, and desserts. For drinks, they have both hot and cold beverages. They also have a display case of pastries.

Aside from their regular menu, Great Taste Restaurant also has a breakfast combo meals from 5:00am to 10:00am. The meal comes with your choice of drink.

For my breakfast I ordered the Longanisa, corned beef, egg, and garlic rice (P90). It was a very satisfying classic Filipino breakfast.

What I love about the restaurant is, it is a convergence of locals and travelers. Though it was pretty early in morning, the place was packed! Based on the languages spoken by some customers, there were visitors from Visayas and Mindanao. There were also a couple of foreigners having breakfast here. I also noticed what I suppose are cadets from the Philippine Military Academy having breakfast here too.

Meanwhile, on our back to Manila from Sagada, we also dropped by at the Lion’s Head at Kennon Road, Baguio City.

At the Lion’s Head I was able to finally get a taste of the Strawberry Taho! While growing up, I have been to Baguio a couple of times but I never had a chance to taste Strawberry Taho.

I got too excited when Mei’s sister, Ma’am Czar, handed me a cup of Strawberry Taho. I couldn’t get enough of it, so I also bought another one. I find it to be really good and I loved it!

The trip to Northern Luzon was definitely fun! I loved many things about the trip here like the cold weather, the fresh air, the beautiful views, the rich culture, and also the food. For your next summer vacation, try planning for a trip to Norther Luzon.

Now we are off to El Nido, Palawan!

  1. Does Good Taste Restaurant have a parking lot that’s not really developed? Or did they make that better? Not sure if this is the restaurant I went to in Baguio. But that one had plenty of people too! Packed! Lol. So curious hmm

    1. Hi Willia! We had to park somewhere else but since we came here in the morning, there are parking spaces near the restaurant. The place was packed when we came here. There was a constant stream of dinners, locals and visitors.
