3 Quirky Food Finds in the Streets of Baguio

7/25/2014
Perhaps it's the invigorating scenery or the frigid mountain breeze that makes the usual food seem to taste delicious in the streets of Baguio.

Aside from the popular pasalubongs like ube jam, peanut brittle and lengua de gato, a trip to Baguio would not be complete without trying out some of its delectable and eye candy food items.

I've listed 3 quirky food finds I've tried during our recent trip to Baguio.

1. Sundot Kulangot


Sundot Kulangot, Baguio

Its dirty sounding name might turn you off but it is actually a "must-eat" in Baguio. Sundot kulangot is the small version of kalamay, a sticky sweet delicacy made from glutinous rice. The sticky kalamay is covered with miniature coconut shells - which are so small that you need to use your finger to prick or dig the kalamay out, thus the name sundot kulangot.

Microtel by Wyndham, Baguio - Home Away from Home

7/23/2014
Microtel Baguio

It was 5:30 in the morning when we arrived at the Victory terminal in Baguio. We departed Manila at 11:55 pm. The 6-hour bus ride was a breeze and we arrived in Baguio earlier than expected. Our original plan was to roam around the city upon arrival to maximize our 2-day vacation. However, we couldn't bare the frigid weather because at that very moment, the sun hasn't risen yet. It was freezing cold and we were tired so we've decided to take a rest first. I inquired at Microtel just beside the terminal if we could check-in early and I was impressed by how they welcomed us graciously. Now that's what you call excellent customer service.

I originally booked for an overnight stay at Microtel Baguio. Since it was too early, I was expecting for an additional charge for the early check-in, but the receptionist was very accommodating to let us in as early as 5:30 am with no additional charge. The original room I've booked wasn't available yet, good thing they still had a vacant one (same type of room) at the other floor so we got it right away. Rest of the story was happy ever after (we slept for more than 3 hours and went on a whole day tour and food trip after that).
