A taste of Asia, Europe, and America in this Baguio restaurant
Holidays are almost over and the crowd in Baguio must already be dying down. You, on the other hand, can finally enjoy the cold breeze up north and there’s a restaurant we recommend for you to try.
What’s great about Baguio is you won’t run out of places to go. You just have to figure out exactly where to go or you’d spend the entire day wondering.
For instance, have you tried the Asian Fusion Restaurant Hill Station?
Located in Casa Vallejo, Upper Session Road, Baguio City, this food haven serves up delicious comfort food that pays tribute to Baguio’s place in history as one of Asia’s famed colonial hill stations.
Hill Station offers you robust dishes that blend the flavors of Asia’s hill stations with the tastes of Old World Europe and New World America.
It is open everyday from 7am to 10:30pm.
Baguio was among the last hill stations to be established in Asia, during the Spanish and American colonial periods of the Philippines.
Baguio’s early beginnings as a city are rooted in the two colonial eras of the Philippines. The Spanish colonizers first established a sanitarium in the Cordillera region in the 19th century. Europeans who traveled to the tropics in the 18th and 19th centuries found comfort in the pleasant climes of the mountainous regions. They established hill stations as places of rejuvenation and as enclaves for the European lifestyle in former Southeast Asian colonies. In these hill stations the beauty of the landscape, the temperate weather, the rustic settings and good food combined to create a feeling of well-being for visitors and residents alike.
