Kalapaw Restaurant: 300 Peso Ilocano Eat-All-You-Can Buffet in Baguio City

June 27, 2016 Baguio, Benguet, Philippines

There's just something about the cool Baguio climate that makes you hungrier than usual.  Thus, an eat-all-you-can buffet may be the ideal affordable choice.  And, if you're looking for a sulit (bang-for-the-buck) buffet in Baguio City, let me introduce to you Kalapaw Restaurant.

Kalapaw Restaurant is a bit challenging to find because it is not found along the main roads of Baguio City.  Instead, it is found in the a narrow Martinez Street on Engineer's Hill, right behind the Victory Bus Station and the Microtel Hotel.

According to this, it is Baguio's Top 10 Most Outstanding Restaurant.

The atmosphere is very simple.  There are no air-conditioners and to be honest, it smelled like a a carinderia.

Ilocano Buffet

They had a lot of food selections.  For 300 pesos, it's a real steal.  My only concern is the evident presence of buzzing flies and the uncovered food warmers that was a big drawback in my dining experience.  It makes me prefer the posh ambiance of O' Mai Khan perhaps.  But, such hygiene matters could have easily been addressed had they used the covers which were only stored underneath.

The food is pretty good.  I appreciate that they really ensured that the food is warm.

This section is the special addition for weekends.  During weekdays, the rate is only 199 php but without this Ilocano favoritesBagnet all you can makes it quite tempting.

Pako Salad, Ilocano Empanada and Calamares anyone?

They even have Sinanglao.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Overall, Kalapaw Restaurant is worth it.  It's selling point is the price and food quality.  Hope they just have their dishes covered that's all.  They also have ala carte and group meals.  I heard they are also famous for their Boodle Fight.  I'm think this is also the same with the Taste of Laoag in the food court stall which I encountered in SM North Edsa SM Food Court.
