During stressful weeks, I always look for a place where I can dine and relax and just forget about my busy city life. You may say that there are a lot of places with that kind of description here in Baguio and I will agree to that. But I have a new discovery: LA PARILLA CAFE AND GRILL, located at #68 Kisad Road, Baguio City – this cafe is so near the central business district yet the ambiance gives you a feel of being in a hidden and secluded mountain resort. You will not miss this if you are traversing Kisad Road because it is exactly where INN ROCIO & Restaurant is located.
Well, I didn’t have to wait for me to be stressed but I decided to visit La Parilla Cafe and Grill because Bright Hope Room for Growth, Inc., a school that my wife and I founded, just concluded its school year 2014-2015 so that gave us a reason to celebrate.
As a treat to ourselves and our dedicated teachers, we chose La Parilla Cafe and Grill as part of our year-end luncheon. The place is so inviting and you will surely give in to selfie temptations while waiting for your order. Here are some captured memories at La Parilla Grill and Cafe during our Bright Hope Room for Growth, Inc., Admin and Teachers’ Year-End Luncheon:
WHAT WE HAD:
The launching of La Parilla Cafe and Grill is a gift to the City of Baguio. It gives me another reason to say that I have made the right decision of staying here and building a career in this fast growing city.
Others make concrete jungles out of their properties but congratulations to the owners of La Parilla Cafe and Grill, I’m glad that you decided to embrace nature.
Again, food is great and I will surely keep coming back but not only because of the food but because of the calmness that the place brings to my soul. (Kasi if the price is right, kalma lang talaga ako. Dito magugulat ka na quality na ang food at affordable pa ang price kaya – it is really calming to ones soul.)
If you plan to visit the place, just tell them you read about it from my blog and you’ll surely get…a smile from their friendly wait staff.
