Best Restaurants in Baguio City

The City of Baguio is well-known for a lot of things. There's the cold climate. There's the beautiful and unique culture and traditions of the indigenous populations called Igorots. There's Burnham Park with the popular man-made lake at its very center. There's the Baguio Cathedral whose spires arise over the city. There's the historic Session Road. There's the towering SM City shopping center atop Luneta Hill. And of course, there are the dozens of other parks like Botanical Garden, Mines View Park, Wright Park, etc. Most visitors of the city come to see these attractions. Only a minority of these visitors come for the city's dining and food scene. However, these food tourists will surely grow in number as more people get to know of the amazing restaurants located in Baguio City.
