Yes Pho

Yes Pho is my gem-find during our recent trip to the City of Pines. We were supposed to eat pizza at one of the restaurants in Mile Hi Center in Camp John Hay but couldn't find the resto so hubby and daughter opted to eat tapsi while I scouted the area for some interesting food finds.


Then I saw this small Vietnamese resto and I am immediately drawn to that bowl of Pho which is really perfect for the cool Baguio weather. I was also tempted to try out the spring rolls (I love Vietnamese spring rolls) but didn't order it since I am not that hungry. Now I feel bad for not ordering the spring rolls and you'll find out why.


Yes Pho is not a fast food place and I think my waiting time was around 15 minutes. I was taking pictures the whole time and since I am not that hungry, I didn't really mind waiting for my Pho Bo.


I opted to get the regular Pho Bo bowl because I feel like I am not going to finish all of it. Here are some of Yes Pho's menu. I was looking for Bahn Mi, but they also have the Bahn Mi Kem (ice-cream sandwich version).


Here's my Pho Bo (Beef Noodle Soup), P159. The serving looks "konti" but believe me, its not. The soup tastes very refreshing and light, and I love how how the various herbs adds to that taste- none of that flavor extenders. You'll be disappointed too if you think that the soup will taste like beef because its not. So far, this is one of the best tasting and authentic Pho Bo I've tasted. Now I feel bad for not ordering the spring rolls and the Vietnamese coffee!


Here is Peter a.k.a. Duy Trinh. I didn't realize that he is a Vietnamese until after I heard him speak Tag-lish with an accent. And he does say "pho" or "pho" a lot. Similar to Filipinos, Vietnamese are very polite people.




So if you are visiting Baguio and feel you need a bowl of warm soup, do visit Yes Pho at the Mile Hi Center for that warm and refreshing bowl of Pho Bo.

  1. When we ate at YesPho we almost ordered everything on the menu, except for the beverages. All of them were really delicious! Did you try their Iced Coffee?

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
