Dessert Food Crawl at Session Road

Sunday, July 19, 2015

On my last day at Baguio during my 3 days stay there along with the other bloggers few weeks ago, I barely had no plans of going around. I thought, I did almost everything that I can do in the city for the past few years I've been there. All I want to do on my last day after our ocular in Azalea Residences Baguio is to buy pasalubong for my family and friends. God is good I have friends with me who are up for a quick adventure around Session Road and draw me along. 


The three of us, me, Miss Kenny of http://www.lifeiskulayful.com/, and Chiki of http://turistaboy.com/ found our common denominator before we stride down Session Road. We all have a sweet tooth! (Actually, I almost always find myself eating desserts prior to meals. Are you also like this? Is this normal? lol.)

Chiki, being a local of Baguio, gave us a quick tour around the tea house and restaurants with the best sweet recommendation for a tourist around Session Road. (With the help of https://eatsinbaguio.wordpress.com/ which serve as our directory of other pastries to try!)

1. Strawberry Shortcake at Vizco's
Php 80 per Slice; Good for 1 (Cuz it's good. I'm biased, okay?)

Strawberry equals Baguio. Who wouldn't say no to a pastry with Baguio's famed fruit? As what Chiki said, Strawberry Shortcakes is selling like pancakes here especially when it's Panagbenga season.

Everyone's really into the Strawberry Shortcake! For just 80php, you can get a slice of real goodness. (It's my first to taste a real authentic shortcake that's why I couldn't wait to get my hands on the slice!)

Sorry but I can't help not invading Vizco's refrigerators to check out all these shortcakes ready for serving.

Just one bite and I want to buy a whole cake to bring at home. (Too bad I can't unless I have a cooler with me on the trip back to Manila) The tad bit sour fresh strawberry slices is a perfect complement to the not-to-thick vanilla frosting. It's not too sweet but I guess is a good dessert on a savory meal.

2. Choco Vanilla Affair by Pizza Volante
Php 80 per Serving; Good for 2

This home-grown restaurant that's known for its Italian dishes was our next stop. Too bad we are after the desserts, and not pizza or pasta. Would love to come back here to try those though.

Going back, the place isn't as picturesque but you'll definitely recognize the italian restaurant vibe because of its color and facade.

Upon seeing the Choco Vanilla Affair, I suddenly remembered Classico Del Pudding Di Choco, a fresh homemade Chocolate Pudding from Fratini's restaurantWith that, I had high expectations with this one. What separates this from Classico Del Pudding Di Choco, is that it is topped with a vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream. 

I loved how the pudding is served really hot and the generous amount of ice cream as well. But then, I find the brownie and the ice cream somehow bland for my taste buds.

3. Champorado at Cafe by the Ruins
Php 160 per serving; Good for 3

Cafe by the Ruins isn't really located at Session Road but it was a few walks away from the famous street. What made us eager to drop by to this cafe is because its instagram-worthy!

But then, since I wasn't here for a shoot, I looked forward to what sweets can we try on in this beautiful place.

It was almost lunch time and a good way to fill our stomach up is with champorado with danguit (chocolate porridge). It was surprising that behind its well prepared look, the champorado tastes so homemade. It reminded me of mom's cooking, except the wonderful milk beautifully designed on top. 

I told my friends I don't really pair my champorado with any dried fish. But then, they were able to push myself to greater heights hence, I tried the well-known combination. And aahhh, didn't thought it'd taste so good.

I had too much fun eating the danguit that I actually wrapped it around the lettuce and churn on it after eating my champorado.

4. Chona's Delight by Tea House Restaurant & Bakeshop
Php 120; Good for 3-4

Tea House Restaurant & Bakeshop is famous for its handaan offerings combined with their special cakes. 

(c) Life is Kulayful 
It was our final stop and I 'm hoping to end this tour with a bang. The place may look like it's been here for a lot of years already, yet the place is jam packed!

Chona's delight, named after the owner's daughter (if I get it right?), is a soft chocolate sponge cake in a tub with creamy filling. Hep! Don't judge the dessert yet with its appearance. After all, many locals find it as a nice idea since they can bring it anywhere without the worries of distorting the cake. It's not much of a photo-worthy but heck, you should at least land a spoon on it. No regrets, the sweet is all over once you take a bite.

My tooth has been gratified once again. I love the feeling of being dragged to different places not knowing what to expect once there. More to come on this kind of adventures, please?
