A few weeks ago, I made a promise to a few friends, especially to Ariel, that I will meet with them in Baguio for dinner and drinks on May 5 to compensate for missing out on Ariel and Allen’s special day last February 4 (It was all because of this).
After a night at the movies with my archu-friends, I went directly to the bus station to get a ride to Baguio. Got on the 3:00 AM trip and arrived in Baguio at 10:30 AM. Ariel and Odo picked me up at the terminal and took me to Hale ‘Opua Bed and Breakfast where we spent the night (more on this later).
I didn’t know a lot of good restaurants in Baguio. So, I turned to Foursquare to get an idea of popular restaurants around the area. As soon as I spotted Forest House in the list, I knew it was a place I wanted to visit. None of my friends have been there but I heard it was a must-try place. I went ahead and placed a reservation with them.
What a quaint place Forest House was! We were welcomed by this impressive fireplace.
We were led to a corner table with a window. Nice!
And look at what was on the table. Yes, this is definitely our table.
While waiting for my friends to arrive, I couldn’t help but walk around the picturesque place and take pictures!
From the deck, I saw a yard below which got me curious. Apparently, below the restaurant was bed and breakfast.
By the time I got back to the restaurant, the place was already filled with diners. Dan, Ariel and Allen arrived as well. Immediately, we ordered food!
While eating, we were treated to some wonderful music by this trio.
And, of course, here is the group
