We had a chance to have dinner twice in one of the romantic and old restaurants in Baguio – the Hill Station. Our first visit was in April 29, 2013 when Hon had his Rib Eye steak and Vanilla shake and for me, a cup of latte and a slice of cheesecake. We both agreed that the food is great so we made a pact to come back again. And so we’re back last June 13, 2014.
The following photos are what we ordered last April 29, 2013 (good thing, the photos have dates :P).
Hon partnered his steak with Vanilla Shake. Not a bad combination after all. I tried it but it’s too sweet for me, though.
These were mine. Two hours before we went to Hill Station, I already consumed some carbs and here, adding more… I love the cheesecake, it’s just perfect for my coffee.
The following photos are what we had last June 13, 2014. Hon tried to rekindle his first romance with the Rib Eye steak but it was not successful because he ordered the one below by mistake. He didn’t notice that they are different in the menu. Can’t remember what is this called, actually. But it’s still a steak, that’s for sure!
While waiting for the main course, we are served with complimentary bread along with our ordered cappuccino and one shot of espresso.
Below are other photos we took during our first visit. Hill Station is adjacent with other establishments like Casa Vallejo (their Bed and Breakfast Inn), North Haven Spa (where we had our most unsatisfying massage, no offense but it’s not worth it) and Mt. Cloud Bookshop for readers.
Overall, our two visits in Hill Station are both satisfying. We love the ambiance and the people there especially the crews who are always smiling as they do their job. The food may be a bit pricey for some but I’m sure that it will compensate the taste. By the way, the resto has a dress code so make sure that you are properly dressed if you wish to eat there. Oh, the irony of it is that we are wearing shorts and shirts during those times. :P

For those who are excited like me, here’s the latest pubic announcement from the Embassy of Japan website about the lift of visa requirements to the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. False Alarm, guys… :P
Recently, false news have been circulating regarding the Japanese Visa for nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam. The news mentioned that Japan has lifted its Visa for the Philippines, Indonesian and Vietnamese.
The Embassy/ Consular office/ of Japan in the Philippines would like to clarify to the public that Japan has not lifted the visa requirements for nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam contrary to the recent reports. However, Japan has opened multiple-entry Visas to nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam. (Japan will continue to accept and deliver Visa applications for Japan through accredited agencies.)
For details about the Visa application and issuance of multiple-entry Visa please refer to the information at: (http://www.ph.emb-japan.go.jp)
