Solibao Restaurant, Baguio City

Another food trip we had during our Baguio Trip 2016 was at Solibao Restaurant near Burnham Park. Because we’re a group of five people (two adults, two teenagers and one kid), we opted to have one of their Solibao Handaang Grande; these are combo set meals good for 5 to 6 persons. We chose Combo E which consisted of Crispy Fried Half Chicken, Kare-Kare with Special Bagoong, Pinakbet with Vigan Sitcharon and Gising-Gising. Each Solibao Handaang Grande combo set meal costs Php1,499 and comes with garlic rice, iced tea and 5 pieces of puto bumbong.

Crispy Fried Half Chicken

True to its name, this Crispy Fried Half Chicken was crispy (and tasty, too). Our son and his cousins enjoyed this.

Kare-Kare with Special Bagoong

This Kare-Kare with Special Bagoong had generous servings of meat and veggies. The taste was not superb but okay. I also don’t recall anything extraordinary about their Special Bagoong.

Pinakbet with Vigan Sitcharon

Hubby and I liked this Pinakbet with Vigan Sitcharon. The local veggies used were fresh, and the addition of Vigan Sitcharon made this dish more palatable. This pinakbet made use of bagoong alamang, instead of fish bagoong sauce that Ilocanos use in their pinakbet.

Sorry for the blurry picture! This Gising-Gising was spicier than usual, which I love, by the way. However, I’ve had too much Pinakbet already (which nicely complemented the Crispy Fried Chicken) that I had no more room in my tummy for this. We had this wrapped instead for take-out.

Puto Bumbong

Having this Puto Bumbong was the much-awaited part of our lunch at Solibao Restaurant. Oh, how many years has it been since I’ve last eaten puto bumbong? Finally, my craving was satisfied!

Food at Solibao Restaurant was good overall. The combo set meal we ordered was more than enough for our group of five people, so we took the rest to our hotel and made it part of our dinner.

    There’s another branch in Session Road. 🙂
    For me, Solibao always equates to shawarma and puto bumbong.
    They have very good shawarma and garlic sauce. I always try to eat one of these everytime I go home to Baguio.
