Nomnomnom Happy Food vegetarian restaurant

A friend, Ria, and I met up a few days ago for lunch at Nomnomnom Happy Food. (Her treat, yay!)

I’ve probably passed by Nomnomnom a thousand times because it’s in my route going to the kids’ school. The first time I saw the signage, I remember thinking “what kind of a name is that?” At the same time, it stirred curiosity to find out what it was all about.

Nomnomnom Happy Food has an unassuming appearance from the outside. The ambiance inside, however, is cozy and quaint, with a lot of quirky points of interest.

 I love the walls of frames, bird houses, the “something good” mural. My favorite and the happiest detail to me is the wall with wooden-clipped photos.

Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo in Baguio City

I finally had a reunion date with my childhood BFF, Padma, whom I’ve not seen since the 1986 EDSA Revolution. I had to use a calculator to count – 24 years! We set the date at Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo, a newly opened fine dining restaurant at the top of Session Road, right below SM City.

Hill Station is in one of the oldest buildings in Baguio, Casa Vallejo. I’m trying to go back as far as I can remember, and back then (wasn’t too long ago, heh!), Casa Vallejo housed a dance studio, some government offices, as well as the hotel. I’m not too sure if the hotel was still operational then. (I was too young to care.) Sadly, through the years, the building was neglected.

So it was great news to me when I heard Casa Vallejo was being restored and relaunched as a boutique hotel, and that a wonderful restaurant would soon open there -Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo.

Okay, I’m lost now. Back to the reunion date… Continue reading Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo in Baguio City
