Dumaguete: Walking Food Trip

If there was one thing I would recommend that visitors do in Dumaguete, it would be a walking food trip in Dumaguete. There are a lot of good foods in Dumaguete, foremost of which are chicken barbecue and sans rival. For our walking food trip in Dumaguete, we went to Citiburger and The Sans Rival Shop.

The walking part for this food trip in Dumaguete is important here. One, even though Dumaguete is officially a city, it's a very walkable city, quite perfect really for a food trip. You can go from one foodie place to another in Dumaguete without having to hail a tricycle (the king of the road there). And two, you'll need the brisk walk going from one foodie place to another for this food trip in Dumaguete. Walk off the pounds you just gained.

Baguio City: Oh My Gulay

There is a place in Baguio I always like heading to for a decent meal. And wouldn't you know it? It's a vegetarian restaurant. Me? Liking vegetarian restaurants? The thing is, Oh My Gulay in Baguio City is more than just a restaurant. It's more like an art space really, full of sculptures, installations, and various other art pieces. Owned and designed by acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik, Oh My Gulay restaurant is found on the top floor of Azotea Building located along busy Session Road in Baguio City, the de facto capital and transport hub of the Philippines' northern highlands, the Cordillera region.

The food is great. The decor is even greater. And after a seven-hour bus ride from Manila, that sunset was breath-taking. Here be photos. Enjoy.
