Hill Station, Casa Vallejo (May 15, 2012)

We dropped by our hotel to deposit the items we bought at Mines View Park and the Good Shepherd Convent. Then we walked further down the road to have our lunch at Hill Station.

This fine dining tapas bar and restaurant was voted one of the best restaurants in Asia in the Miele Guide. It is located in Casa Vallejo which is one of the oldest institutions in Baguio that was converted into a boutique hotel. Aside from the restaurant, it also houses the Mt Cloud Bookshop where poetry readings are held on certain evenings of each month. But unfortunately, we weren't able to pass by due to time constraints.

It was a little past 1 in the afternoon when we settled down to have our lunch.

For appetizers, we had the Spinach and Artichoke Dip.

D had the Cambodian Coriander Chicken.

I ordered the Peached Paprika Salmon.

The place was nearly empty during lunch time but I heard it gets busy during the weekends. Naturally, it is a bit pricey but the ambiance is very romantic. I'd say it is a good place for a date. Its cozy surroundings is a nice venue to get to know someone more intimately. Perfect place to toast our 4th wedding anniversary! =)

Thanks :)

I get the impression that maybe the food isn't good if a restaurant is empty :P But then we were there on a weekday way past lunch hour so perhaps that is the reason why it was empty.
