To continue with the story of our Baguio escapade, here’s what we did from 2 to around 4 PM.
There are 2 sections to Hill Station: the one nearest the entrance is the cafe area, and there’s another that’s the spacious main dining area with wide windows and a chandelier (I believe). Unfortunately, we only ate at the cafe area since the staff was prepping the interior for a dinner-concert.
The Mini Blue Cheese Burgers were a recommendation from my colleague who also raved about the Strawberry Taho.
What can I say? Everything we ordered was really good! The soup was served hot, the ravioli had a delicate taste to it, and the burger patties just melted inside our mouths. Plus, the service was fast (probably because we were the only ones eating a meal at 2 PM) and the waiter was very nice (I forgot to take note of his name).
You’d think that the servings were small, but we actually left Hill Station with full tummies (traydor yung servings). A bit pricey, though — our food plus a can of Schweppes Ginger Ale cost us PHP800++. Nevertheless, great food and great service. No wonder it was listed in The Miele Guide, two years in a row at that.
After Hill Station, we peeked into the other shops located in Casa Vallejo: Mt. Cloud Bookshop, Cinematheque, and North Haven Spa.
Okay, so I guess this post is pretty long now, what with the photos we captured at Hill Station/ Casa Vallejo alone. The rest of the day will be covered in Part 3, so stay tuned.
