If you are looking for the ultimate vacation adventure in the Philippines this summer, then you should try to visit the country’s summer capital— Baguio City. You’ll definitely fall in love with the city not just because of the cool air that it brings or the different sights and sceneries that you can get to see but of course, the special delicacies that it offers. To help you have the ultimate vacation, be sure to try the following famous delicacies from Baguio City
If there is one thing Baguio is really famous for, it’s definitely strawberries. This fruit is really popular in the country as it does not easily grow in other parts of the country because it needs a cold climate to grow. I’ve always thought that the only things that you’d be able to buy in Baguio are fresh strawberries and strawberry jam— not until I learned about the existence of Strawberry Taho! It is definitely a whole new different sweet treat as fresh strawberry syrup is used to mix with the taho instead of the usual sweetener. You should definitely look for it in the streets of Baguio when you go there.
No matter how funny and gross its name may sound, Sundot Kulangot is sure to be one of the most popular delicacies that most tourists buy as pasalubongs when they visit Baguio City. It is actually calamay that’s just placed in a small container. You would have to make use of your finger to get the tasty calamay, that’s why perhaps it’s called sundot kulangot (picking your nose).
When you visit Baguio City, be sure to indulge yourself in the ever famous Benguet Coffee. Don’t think that it’s just an ordinary coffee because it is actually the native coffee of the Cordillera province. In other parts of the country, it’s what they call kapeng barako. See to it that you get to enjoy its inviting aroma and drink this coffee while you enjoy the sceneries in the City.
Baguio City offers more than sights and sounds to the various tourists who visit the city ever year. It also provides special and delicious delicacies that could definitely satisfy your craving taste buds and satiate your appetite. Make sure to try the Strawberry Taho, Sundot Kulangot and the Benguet Coffee when you visit the country to add a richer and more memorable experience for your vacation in Baguio City.
