During my last trip to Baguio, I got to try out a couple of restaurants for the first time. First on the line is Vizco’s Restaurant and Cake Shop. It is located along Session Road so upon alighting a Victory Liner bus, we simply trekked a short way from the terminal to the restaurant.


It’s a good thing that they were open early enough for us to grab some breakfast, or else we would have ended up at one of the 24-hour operating fast food chains. All their -silog meals are served with free coffee, which is a good way to warm up in a cold Baguio morning. Their breakfast meals range between Php100-Php125, which is not too bad I think. However, they all tasted pretty average, nothing special to write about.




While reading up some online reviews of this restaurant, almost every article raves about their Strawberry Shortcake. There are whole cakes on display along with other flavors, but to be quite honest, I only had my eyes on this beauty.


And even though it was not even 8 in the morning, we couldn’t help but order a slice of their Strawberry Shortcake. To be fair, that’s just one slice among the three of us so I didn’t feel too guilty about having cake so early in the day.

Strawberry cake with fresh strawberry filling, icing and glazed topping – this is how it was described in the menu. It was heavenly! It was perfectly creamy, not too sweet, and the strawberries tasted fresh and juicy. And a slice is only worth Php80. Such a steal!


If you ever find yourself along Session Road, go ahead and pay Vizco’s a visit. And never leave the restaurant without trying out their Strawberry Shortcake.

I’m starting up on one of the items in my Bucket List: Bring packed lunch to work.

Today’s lunch is nothing fancy, primarily due to the fact that we do not have a stove in the apartment yet so we’re cooking everything on the rice cooker. This entails a longer cooking time as the amount of heat it gives off is not as much as that of a regular stove. Things should be better soon as Nero and I are buying a fridge and stove later after work.

Anyway, I just chopped up some garlic, onions and potatoes. Scratch that. Nero did all the chopping because I was such in a hurry because I needed to be in the office before 8:05am. Thanks Nero! ☺

Sautée the garlic first, let it brown. Put in the onions; stir around until they turn into a transparent color. Then in goes the potatoes. Add some salt and pepper to taste and a tad bit of water for the potatoes to cook well. When almost all the water is absorbed by the potatoes, put in the canned corned beef. And voila! There’s your lunch!

In a futile attempt to keep things healthy, we use brown rice instead of the more usual white one.

I’m looking forward to cooking more dishes in the future. Huzzah for domestication!
