Baguio Travel Diaries : 50's Diner
( Photo by : Martin Acol)
Since the cold weather has been upon us since December, and even planning to get colder this January, this blog entry is still relevant. Or am I just giving myself an excuse for a late post (which I’m truly sorry). Been traveling a lot lately, exploring my country which is the Philippines. But as promised, I’ll still post my whole Baguio trip. Especially now, I’m pretty sure people will be visiting Baguio more often since the weather will be getting colder. Last month, my friends and I decided to finally visit Baguio, traveler style. Meaning, taking a bus, somewhat commuting from one place to another (By commuting I meant GrabTaxi, which btw was really cheap, around 50-70PHP a trip, not bad at all) and lastly, visiting places the non-tourist spots. Well, for a change.
So first stop was the 50’s diner. Before going to this trip, I necessarily did my research. I made sure that we would go to places that are artsy, chill, pocket friendly and of course Instagrammable.
Back to 50’s diner, this place is very known by the locals but also some online influencers who had visited this diner as well. The diner has some resemblance with the famous Johnny Rockets, modern version that we have in the city. The place has a peak hour, which is normally breakfast, lunchtime and dinner so beware the place does get packed up.
One of the things that I noticed right away besides the interior of the place is their menu. They have such creative names for their food such as Chicken spears, Gangsta gangsta, Guys on the hood, 50’s diet any many more. Definitely fits the personality of what the diner caters. The price is reasonable and pocket friendly!
This diner did really get a lot of praises, It's been said that it's a must in Baguio so make sure to drop by before you leave.
