Last 20th of May 2011, we climbed Baguio to attend a business and family leisure trip. Upon our arrival in Baguio proper, we were greeted with wet roads [considering the weather in Manila is of course humid that day] and totally colder nights. When I went back to Manila, my nose and lips were all chappy and dry-crazy, but so grateful I had to visit Baguio again once in a while.
Dinner was held at Le Chef of The Manor of Camp John Hay. The dishes were exquisitely arranged and visually inviting. I believe Le Chef's came from the same group that manages Le Souffle. When in Baguio, nature fulfill its duty, mountain chills and fogs surrounded the place accompanied with relaxing instrumental music.The restaurants interior wooden setting is adorned by group of paintings. They recommend reservation and a smart casual dress code. Le Chef serves an International cuisine and also Local cuisine.
|Cream of Carrot and Pumpkin|
|Ciabata & Bread Rolls|
The salad bar station has a dish with greens, tomatoes, carrots & cheese, assorted coldcuts and fresh tuna slice "Ceviche Style" in ginger lemon dressing [not in the picture].
|Assorted Cold Cuts|
From among the main dishes I like most the Assorted Vegetables Au Gratin is like baked vegetable topped with cheese and Seafood Croquet with tartar sauce - creamy and crunchy, not too heavy. Both dish compliments each other
|Beef Bourguignon "The Classic Way'|
|Roasted Chicken with Celery & Onions Stuffing in Thyme Jus|
|Seafood Croquet with Tartar Sauce|
|Traditional Chocolate Mousse|
|English Bread & Butter Pudding with Vanilla Sauce|
|Desserts on plate|
For desserts kids enjoyed the chocolate mousse and fruit trifle while adults like me we feast with the english bread pudding. Le Chef is like a comfort food, it's not everyday you get to experience Baguio at its best.
