On our 1st day in Baguio, we had our lunch in one of the famous go-to restaurants in Baguio, Grumpy Joe. I really wanted to maximize our trip in Baguio that’s why I research a lot, where to go and eat, including the best restaurants in the city.
ABOUT GRUMPY JOE
It is an Italian-American food joint along Leonard Wood Road. It started operating last March, 2014. It’s also near in one of the famous restaurants in Baguio which is the 50’s Diner.
It is situated on the second floor of a commercial building. Although their place is a little bit small, it still have that relaxing ambiance inside. When we went there, it’s almost Halloween that’s why they decorated the place like these… Such a cutie!
Now, let’s go to the food! Since two of our friends already went here, they recommended the restaurant’s best sellers and it didn’t disappoint us! YUM!
Aside from these, they also have chickens, burgers, fries, mojos, salads, rice meals, frappes, desserts, etc.
MY TOP PICKS:
- Aloha 5 Cheese – It will be kinda biased because I’m a cheese lover but I’m telling you, this one is really good. I can eat a box of these errday!
Spicy Seafood Pesto – I’m quite surprised with their serving. A plate is good for 2-3 pax already. This one is my fave too because duh!? It’s SPICY. Lol. But I swear, their pasta is really flavorful. You gotta try this!
I really enjoyed dining here! All the food were good and delicious. Not to mention that all of these were very affordable and good for sharing! No wonder that they are jampacked everyday especially during lunch and dinner. JUST A TIP: Visit them during off peak hours to avoid long lines. Luckily, we went there right before lunch time. Yey!
Also, I wish they will open a branch here in Manila. I heard that they have only two branches right now. One in Baguio and the other one in La Union. Hope the owner will hear my wish/prayer. LOL.
