This is a continuation of my blog post in Cebu MD: "2011 Baguio City Tour in One Day: Part 2" which chronicles our recent 1-day Baguio tour to serve as a reference for future Baguio backpackers.
It was lunch time and instead of having lunch within Camp John Hay, we decided to try the talked about "Good Taste" restaurant at the back of Magsaysay Road. Going there at noon on a Sunday was quite time-consuming because of the traffic jam. Parking was difficult since the place was full of customers and the location near the Dangwa Bus station did not help.
But it was worth the wait...
Good Taste is a Filipino-Chinese restaurant. Quite an old one by the looks of it but surprise! The waiters and waitresses have radio communications and what seem to be a Personal Digital Assistant handy device to aid in taking the orders.
We asked the waitress what were the bestsellers and she mentioned spicy butter chicken, mixed pulutan and chopsuey. Knowing beforehand that the servings are large, we ordered just half serving for the chicken but we got the surprise of our lives upon seeing the actual served food...It was indeed LARGE!!! It was just insane!
I liked the chicken and the chop suey. The vegetables in the chop suey were obviously fresh.
The mixed pulutan was gone by the end of mealtime but the chicken we had to take home because the serving was even more for the three of us. (That later served as our dinner.) The restaurant deserved its name Good Taste. And the price is very affordable. They also have set meals known better as rice toppings which actually can feed more than 1 person.
You can see from the background its many patrons. It is said to be open 24/7.
If you are in PMA, do not forget to pose beside the tanks and old artillery weapons, plane and chopper. (Well I hope those are no the ones our military are still using).
We managed to go also to the Tam-awan village which showcase traditional Igorot dwellings and Baguio artists' works or paintings.
We also had a nice view of the Kennon road's breathtaking zigzag paths amidst large mountains...
So that's about it. The Baguio visit started and ended with prayers. I prayed for good health and I thanked God for still being able to enjoy His creation despite my condition...for giving me the opportunity to experience Baguio anew with my wife despite my anemia and cold intolerance, to forget work momentarily and to appreciate life.
Even with PKD, life goes on for God is always around and the Baguio experience made me feel God's presence. Enjoy too your Baguio trip in the future.
