Eating At Point and Grill, Session Road Will Makes You Starve More!


We are planning to visit the Baguio Christmas Village, but it turns out to go to Burnham Park to watch for dancing and colorful foundation. My kid got hungry as well as me and hubby. We walk through Session Road to check out where to eat. 

What we love to dine for tonight? hmmm... We passed by different eatery and restaurant across the road until we are decided to try the Point and Grill. Love the meal combo that has been posted outside the restaurant. 

I don't think that Point and Grill are some kind of a fine-dining restaurant, but I would say that it has budget meals. I  ask the server for table for three, and she pointed to the next table behind me. Although there are customers still seating, but they are just waiting for the change and ready to leave. 


Looking at the menu makes you feel overwhelmed because they have lots of food choices that you can pick.  I ordered the Sinigang na Baboy which is I think perfect because of the cold weather.  My kid orders Chicken Lollipop, but it's not available, so he shifted to Chicken Inasal instead while hubby ordered the Ribs because his first order is also not available and of course dessert which is Chocolate Fudge Cake and three ice tea.


It takes time before our order came until I got mine while the orders of my son and hubby has not yet arrived. I started eating because I'm so hungry. I already eat half of my food when their food comes because of a non stop follow up to the waiter. 

In fairness, their food tastes little good. However, hubby order turns out not perfectly done because there is a chicken piece in his order,which is so ironically because it's supposed to be pork ribsI even try to taste it, and it was true that it was a chicken. I know that I can differentiate the taste of chicken from a pork. We even ask the waitress to check it, and she brought the food in the chicken to show it to their cook, but it says that it was a rib, Funny!

Anyway, we ask for our dessert but like the meals that we ordered it arrive like three years, or maybe they pick it up in Manila or somewhere, to the mere fact that we follow it up like two times.


The place looks nice. The food is quite good although the service is very poor, and we don't even think to go back in that Point and Grill Restaurant along Session Road... ever... again. Too bad they did not meet our standards. 

Disclaimer: I have the right to say whatever we experienced with regards to the food and the services of the restaurants as a customer point of view, and we pay for everything that we ordered.

Tradisyon Restaurant at Azalea Residences Baguio Offers Brunch Holiday Special


I was invited for a Brunch in Tradisyon Restaurant at Azalea Residences Baguio. I had done so many food reviews before where I take time to taste everything that the restaurants have to offer and usually had it during lunch or dinner time, this time its BRUNCH. Unique... right! 

The last food review that I had was two weeks ago at Koko Buri Restaurant in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Now, it is something different for I haven't invited to have food review in the province, usually I made my individual judgment in the food that I try in my own personal experience for the restaurants that I visited.  

I only visit Azalea Residences to attend blogging events done by Cordillera Bloggers and GBG. I haven't tried to stay in there although I saw their room are so spacious that I think can accommodate big families or group. Moreover, it's my first time to explore the Tradisyon Restaurant even if the place is not huge, but I can accommodate people who checked-in Azalea Residences while they can now welcome people who like to dine with them. 

The Brunch Holiday Special


This is it, since it was a buffet, I first tried the bread and the spread they offer. I have the white bread and the mixed fruits jam together with butter and peanut butter on my plate. I need to take a few of those to try everything. I love the peanut butter though it tasted like a commercialized peanut butter that you can buy. The only difference is that it was freshly made with pure peanuts without extenders and so thick and creamy. That I know for sure the kids will love. Then the mixed fruits' jam was a blast if you put it in the bread with butter.  It has a kick that I can't explain. You will taste the sweet, sour and salty, all in the same time. 


They also have cereals, salads and fruits.



Next, I have plain rice with Southern Style Fried Chicken, Baguio Longanisa, Ham, Croquettes, Bolognese Pasta and orange juice on the side. However, you can have a perfect cup of coffee or tea. They have the variety of Filipino comfort foods for your brunch, perfectly best while you're waiting for your check-in time or taking rest from the long hours of travel. 




Of course, who will be missed out their very special desserts. They created and uses the well-known fruits that Cordillera has to offer, the blue berry and strawberry. I have the Blueberry Muffin, Chocolate Pudding with strawberry and a slice of Tiramisu. Blueberry is really perfect for a muffin while their Tiramisu has a twist because of Blueberry, which complements the taste of coffee flavor. 



Tradisyon Brunch Holiday Special offers, leisure and festivity brunches with freshly baked breads, pastries, cold cuts, pasta and more. You can pick your favorite all time Filipino comfort foods for only Php 350 per adult and kids below 11 years of age are FREE to eat accompanied by a paying adult.  You can also check out their Special Holiday Grilling.

This Bruch Holiday Special is only available from December 21-31, 2013 from 11am-2pm in the Tradisyon Restaurant at Azalea Residences Baguio. You can visit their website at http://www.azalea.com.ph and like them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/AzaleaResidencesBaguioCity
