#BFT2014 | Where to Eat in Baguio: Rancho Norte and Happy Tummy in Ketchup Food Community

Baguio City is well known for its wonderful landmarks, cool weather, pine trees, and excellent food choices. You’ll find several of these great dining options at the Ketchup Food Community.

Ketchup Community

Rancho Norte and Happy Tummy in Ketchup Food Community are two of the favorites in Baguio for those who happen to be visiting local landmarks like The Mansion, Mines View Park, and Wright Park. Tucked under a grove of pine trees across the horseback riding area in Wright Park, the restaurants offer delightful meals to keep diners full after a fun experience at the popular local spots.

Happy Tummy

Now, for more adventurous diners, Happy Tummy is the place to dine in. This restaurant serves delightful Thai dishes. Thai cuisines have the reputation for being spicy but you won’t really have to worry when dining at this restaurant because the dishes are tweaked a bit to suit Pinoy tastes; thus, dishes aren’t very spicy and are actually a bit on the sweet side.

You can also find Pinoy favorites on the menu: Lechon Kawali, Eggplant Salad, Bagoong Rice, Barbecues, Bulalo, Steamed Lapulapu, and Fried Tilapia.

  13. How does the Tapang Kabayo taste like? And I couldn't imagine Thai cuisines being sweetened. I'm of an authentic taste guy so that I could say that I've tasted a Thai Cuisine without sacrificing the original taste of a dish.

  14. I went to Baguio for the first time last February and it was really a fun experience for me. We ate at Gerry's Grill but I will suggest this restaurant you reviewed to my family when we go back again in Baguio.
