Baguio 2015 (Part 2): Top 6 Foodies At The Hub

Going back to my recent trip, as I mentioned one of the highlights of this visit was the food event called #KLiteFoodies, Foodies at the Hub. A weekend market and food festival happened in Baguio City last April 17-18 brought to us by Baguio-AyalaLand TechnoHub and John Hay Business Club in partnership with Azalea Residences, University of Baguio, Manila Bulletin and Sun Star Baguio.

The food event was participated by more than 15 restaurants and foodies mostly residents of Baguio. In Manila, I've attended several food crawls and food events of this kind. Because Filipinos are talented, they can create, modify and give twists to any regular dish. This blog post will increase your appetite and hopefully make you decide to include going to Baguio this summer. Are you ready?

The pine trees provided shades to cool the summer heat. It's so refreshing to dine and set a family picnic at Camp John Hay. It was in 2009 when I first set foot in this place. I was looking for Tsokolate Batirol then.

1. SPREAD by Chef Joaquin

He started experimenting in the kitchen at age 12, Joaquin Antonio Migallos level up his skills and knowledge with extensive training from the Center for Culinary Arts. The love of food and flavors lead him to create SPREAD. 

Chef Joaquin's handcrafted SPREADs were incredibly delicious. It's one of many Filipino products we can be proud of. I won't be surprised if one day it will be known in other parts of the country and abroad. From six flavors, the Spinach dip, Bacon Bourbon Jam and Chili Chocolate astounding. One way to enjoy these spread is by mixing two or more flavors. I can be added to green salad and enhance its flavor. Serve it on bland or unsalted crackers and enjoy anytime of the day snacks.

3. Jovy's Kitchen

I still can't get over Jovy's strawberry adobo. It's very flavorful, the meat was tender and juicy. I asked her what's the secret and she said "I'm using strawberry". I've heard a lot of twists in making adobo, there's adobo sa puti, three-way adobo. Our family cooked it two-way, simmer until there's small amount of sauce left in it. Then we sauteed in onion and add the remaining sauce. Jovy's adobo is another unique and outstanding adobo version. I promised myself to try it at home unfortunately we were not able to bring home Baguio strawberries

Jovy's Kitchen

Aside from strawberry adobo, The modern Pelo diet that contains unprocessed food. Find out more visit jovyskitchen.com

SHOPPING in BAGUIO CITY

When in Baguio or else where in the Philippines, I make sure to buy something that will remind me of my trip. It may be a kitchen aid, home decor, clothes or personal care item. I took a break and went around to see other Baguio products. There were pasalubong items from Lengue De Gato, Peanut Brittle, Strawberry and Ube Jam, native bags and footwear even Igorot costumes.

Kung Fu Kitchen

We had dimsum, chicken feet at Kung Fu Kitchen. Some of my blogger friends were quite hesitant to try chicken feet. It was okay with me, my mom's side of family cooks adobo chicken feet. My favorite from Kung Fu Kitchen is the wrapped bacon and spare ribs.

There goes my Lakbay Baguio Top 6 Foodies at the Hub! I must say it was a successful weekend food festival. Cleanliness and orderliness were maintained. I didn't saw any bottled water or BBQ stick around. There were trash bags in every food stalls and around the area. People did not mind the cold weather and frequent rain showers especially in the evening. Congratulations #KLiteFoodies #FoodiesAtTheHub!
