BLINDFILTER Cafe and Kitchen


In the outskirts of Baguio, a startup food hub is on the rise at Bakakeng, especially now with the new BlindFilter Kitchen by Cafe Angelo raising its flag as one of the premier restaurants and cafe in the area. And yes, you read it right, BlindFilter and Kitchen or “BFK” is indeed another creative, gastronomic outgrowth of the famous Cafe Angelo along Chapis Village, but definitely BFK has its own distinct personality with practically a different menu offering wonderfully delicious, affordable gourmet rice meals, beverages, appetizers etc. just like Cafe Angelo, all of their ingredients are locally sourced (even the coffee), and that means everything is FRESH! And FYI, Chef RO Quintos of Cafe Angelo is behind the menu.



We honestly loved all their Rice Mugs, but we have a shortlist of our favorites to make the job easier for you, but then again, try everything! Really, we urge you to try EVERY BFK Rice Mug!

TOB Food Crawl 2018 Leg Two: A Journey through ElYu for Your Tastebuds

As we lounged around the wonderful Puerto De San Juan (accommodation sponsor), we can’t help but talk about how much of La Union’s foodscape grew; there are so many new places to eat, so much variety actually …especially along the city of San Fernando and San Juan town, the foodscape has grown considerably in the past few years continuously expanding to cater for the foodie instagrammable set.

And we at Eats in Baguio were lucky to have continued our second day for the 2nd leg of the The Other Bloggers Food crawl 2018, this time in the warm sandy region of La Union.

Layag Grille and Kilawen Bar

We were gluttons by the sea, besieged with all these irresistible grilled seafood recipes originating from Davao, and of course there is nothing like dining on a dock overlooking the beach. Another one of those places for your barkada or family, because of their large servings.
