Baguio Day 1: 50's Diner, SM City Baguio, Liwaliw sa Kalye

Pagkatapos kaming ulanin ng bongga sa Burnham Park at magpalit-outfit sa transient house na tinuluyan namin, we went to 50's Diner along General Luna Road for dinner. I wasn't hungry yet at that time but I had to eat something because I know I'll get hungry before bed time if I won't.

The place has a retro vibe with posters of Old Hollywood Films though I am not familiar with any.
Their menu was straightforward (American food) and the prices were affordable. I seriously wasn't expecting to be served a cheeseburger this big when my reason for ordering a burger was to eat something "light".  I heard that 50's diner is also a popular restaurant for tourists and locals and upon eating there, I understood why. Masarap naman, malaki servings at mura pa. 
Taken at SM Baguio.

I believe that aside from the view, you won't see anything "new" in SM Baguio.  Most of the establishments there are also found here in Metro Manila. Well, okay nakapag-SM ka sa Baguio at nakapasok ka sa kaisa-isang SM na walang aircon. Hehe. I am used to SM malls also serving as transportation terminals so we were surprised to know that there wasn't any route of jeepneys that would take you directly there, you'd still have to walk... uphill or hire a taxi. Even so, SM Baguio is one of the dominant structures in the area and its veranda overlooks the city so it's worth a visit. Also, I found it easy to remember the places in The City of Pines with SM as my starting point.
We headed out of SM to find a cafe but we ended up doing a night walking tour.
This marker is located at a building along Session Road that currently houses a Korean Cafe and Korean Ramyeon Restaurant.
This is the map of our Baguio Walking Tour. :)))
From SM Baguio, Papuntang Session Road, Burnham Park, Cordillera University then pabalik ng SM Baguio. At around 9 PM, they set up tents near Melvin Jones Football Ground for their night markets. You'll find ukay-ukay, tiangge and street foods there.
On our way back to SM Baguio, we passed by this Korean cafe named Under The Tree Book Cafe. Ito 'yung cafe na andun ngayon sa Session building. We entered but they told us that it was almost closing time so we just looked at the interiors and left.
And we found ourselves overlooking Baguio City again. 'Yung white na building sa may bandang baba, that is the University of the Cordilleras.


This is the end of the rainy, food trip and fun DAY 1. :)
