This is a food blog and I would not talk about the magnificent scenery and cool weather of the City. Instead I will write about some of the unique foods that the City is famous.
Strawberry Taho. They are peddled on the street in the same taho metal containers balanced on bamboo poles on vendor’s shoulder. The taho is the same warm white bean curd with soft sago (tapioca balls) but flavored with fresh strawberry syrup instead of the usual arnibal (caramel). There is nothing more comforting than a sip of warm taho with the taste and aroma of Baguio while enjoying the cold weather strolling Burham Park or seeing the magnificent view at Mines View Park.
Sundot Kulangot, this is another Baguio famous delicacy. The name might be a turn off in Pinoy language but the sweet delicacy is a must try when you’re in Baguio. Sundot kulangot is a miniature version of the calamay. The regular calamay is off course packed in a coconut shell but sundot kulangot uses small shells that looks like miniature coconut shells instead. Inside is the same sweet calamay that is made up glutinous rice. The shells are so small that you need to use the finger to dig out the calamay thus the name sundot kulangot (poke booger or snot).
The Baguio City Food Trip is a part of the family’s Ilocos Adventure, Christmas holiday travel.
