Baguio City is not just a place to relax and unwind, people also come here for its food! We took a trip to Baguio and tried their most famous restaurants. Can't decide where to eat in Baguio? Check out these places on your next food crawl to the City of Pines.
Oh My Gulay
Address: 5th Floor, La Azotea Building, Session Road
Operating Hours: Sunday to Monday, 11:00 AM – 11:00 PM
This space is quite hard to find for first-timers since it’s situated at the fifth floor of a building along Session Road. Once you reach the restaurant, you’ll be welcomed with a rustic art space inspired by the Igorot culture, a very “Kidlat Tahimik concept” most of us are familiar with. Oh My Gulay has an art gallery, a hanging bridge, carved wooden chairs, and several Igorot artifacts. There’s even a mini garden with a fish pond!
Oh My Gulay is definitely the go-to restaurant for Vegans because of the delectable organic meals. Try their bestseller pasta called “Anak ng Putanesca.”
Exhibits and mini concerts are sometimes held here, and there’s a live pianist in the background even on normal days.
Ili Likha Artist Village
Address: 2600 Assumption
Operating Hours: Sunday to Monday, 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Another restaurant by national artist Kidlat Tahimik, Ili Likha Artist Village is similar to Oh My Gulay, except that it has a more jungle-like structure with more food options. It's where you can find some of the best food in Baguio!

They have a community called Kiwing na Kahoy Kommunity Food Hub (KKK), which consists of vendors inside the place. Each of them has their own specialty which you can choose from—from burgers, pizza to local delicacies and beverages. Try the cheesy mushroom sandwich boat from Café Cueva.
The place screams Igorot culture and artifacts, it’s like entering another world. There’s a resemblance to The Hobbit. Make sure to bring your camera! There’s a rainbow staircase made of mosaic tiles inside, a favorite spot for Instagram-worthy shots. You can easily spot this food hub among the modern establishments along Assumption Road.
