As much as street-side dining is my thing, I also enjoy good food in wonderful, relaxed restaurants. Nice to have cutlery sometimes!

So after my pork barbecue binge in the streets of Boracay, a treat – dining at Hill Station in my hotel Casa Vallejo. It is a popular spot in Baguio City and it does not take a lot to see why.

The grand wooden staircase sets the scene for great country-style dining. 

The atmosphere is fantastic, but more important, the food is such as you would encounter in heaven. 

Of all these deliciousness, my favorite is the dark chocolate and lemon tart. It just might be the condensed form of everything good in the world!

And do not discount the spinach and mushroom ravioli with pumpkin puree. I know it looks like something the dog threw up in the photo but even sugar looks like salt.

It is so flavorful for something supposed to be healthy. In fact, I am surprised how much I like it!

I only wanted to try something new and when my eyes landed on this murky green pasta dish, I knew I did not want to walk away from that table thinking, “I could have eaten that!”

      1. Oh, the restaurant is in a hotel? That’s wonderful! You only need roll out of bed to get there! I’d just be sure to roll into something nice because it seems like such a pretty place, lol.


  2. Did you seriously eat all that??? My god, this is def a change from the road side cafes…. i love the ambience and the food looks soooo good i could eat it from here. I engoy the rare “fine dining” experience, but always get lost on what to order… chicken, meat or fish…and then do i bother to tone down the sauces and accompaniments or just eat the whole damn thing. Would not mind visiting this place though…. especially for that tart!


    1. fantastic to hear from you! this is not as fine as fine dining is concerned. i actually do not enjoy that as much, just like you. fine dining and all its rules make me feel like a neurotic 9 year old. this one here is more relaxed and i loved every bit of it. and yes, my friend, i ate everything and more. how is your diet going? back to solids?
