Tradisyon delivers a homey feel with colors and textures similar to that of a bahay kubo. The plush chairs, bright yellow lighting, and intricate wall décor all contribute to that appeal.

And if you prefer enjoying your breakfast with rice, then they have a number of delicious viands like the Baguio longganisa, pork adobo, and my favorite—their chicken tocino—which was so good that I ended up getting another clean plate and filling it up with the tocino. I’m pretty sure I was able to consume about half a kilo of it in just one sitting. Haha.

Tradisyon Restaurant also has an egg station, where you can ask the chef to cook you up your favorite egg dish, may it be an omelet, sunny side up, over easy, or just any way you want it. Me? I always go for a ham and cheese omelet.

Day 02 Lunch at Tradisyon Restaurant in Azalea Residences Hotel Baguio City

My family and I are not what you can consider as morning people, so we usually prefer doing our tours after lunch. Before heading out, we would get a heavy lunch first. Some lunch dishes you can try at Tradisyon are some local dishes like grilled squid and pinakbet. They also have Spanish callos that have good quality tripe, which I absolutely loved!

I really enjoyed eating their lengua. It was very good and the tongue was cooked nicely that they were soft and flavorful.

And we highly suggest that you try their kare-kare, too. This is the dish that truly made us feel right at home because Tradisyon’s kare-kare came very close to our Nanay’s version.

Another favorite was their Lechon Kawali. It’s a plate of pork belly, deep-fried to a crisp. They’re so addicting, especially if you dip them into some vinegar and ate it with some pickle relish.

For light snacks, you can order their pasta dishes like the spaghetti and carbonara. Their spaghetti is done Filipino-style so it’s sweet and meaty, just like Jollibee’s.
