The name Gourmet Kitschen is is a play on words. Kitsch has been said to be the opposite of art- a cheap, “slapping together” of things and passing itself off as art. I must say my cooking escapades are quite the same- a slapping together of random things I may have tasted before, wanted to taste or imagined.
I am a very messy, irrational cook but I love it and it shows in the food I make.
Kitchen MIshaps and Victories, Restaurant Rants and Raves and a whole lotta wanderlust!

Traveling Tummy: Bits and Bites of Baguio
I was not expecting this gigantor dessert (this is huge in Philippine Standards)--2 big scoops of ice cream, 2 brownies and fresh strawberries
Galbi Gui from Kung Jeon. It was OK. I've had better but I was ok with it. Abdul didn't like it.
Abdul, who used to live in San Francisco said "Hey look, it's Daly City" haha! This was on the way to the strawberry fields in La Trinidad.
Strawberry Picking in La Trinidad. My daughter was on a mission.
Cute little hot chocolate place in Camp John Hay also has REALLY good Palabok and Arroz Caldo!
Corn at Mine's View
Horrible frog's head coin purses
Is this too explicit for a food and travel blog? Perhaps, but it clearly isn't too explicit to be in broad daylight in a tourist spot in Baguio.
A trip to Baguio is never complete for us without a final meal at Cafe by the Ruins
Zucchini patties with parmesan and kesong puti
Kamote bread with herbed cheese spread
One downside to our trip: This diner used to be our favorite place as kids, when it was still downtown. Now it sucks. Everything sucks except the pancakes and I'm not even exaggerating.
This cheeseburger for instance, looks big in size but was filled with extenders, had no taste except for the SWEET mayo. It was pretty disgusting. Someone else on the table got a BLT, took one look at it and called it a Bread Sandwich.
My childhood is now ruined.
Sarah was seriously everywhere we looked.
K,D and A :)
...and they mommas!
I LOVE Baguio! Hopefully another trip up the mountain soon!
