If you want to experience genuine Cordilleran Cuisine, then head on to Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant in Baguio City. This humble restaurant is located just besides Tam-Awan Village. In this short review of Farmers Daughter Baguio, we divided our points into two for better understanding. The first part is all about the ambiance of the place and the other one is about the taste and experience of their cuisine. (Post Updated: September 18, 2019)
Real Cordilleran Vibe
Farmers Daughter Baguio is surprisingly accessible. It only takes one jeepney ride to get to this place. It’s also located just besides the famous Tam-Awan Village which is a perfect treat after that long walk inside the village. Thick thatches, similar to the indigenous nipa huts in Cordillera, covered the top of the restaurant. This resembles a native touch which gives the restaurant a homey and rustic vibe.
The interior of the restaurant is small but it’s filled with different wooden furniture. The high ceiling also provides a cool and comforting atmosphere; thanks to the steeply pitched roofing.
Authentic Cordilleran Cuisine
Farmers Daughter Baguio offers large servings of pure Cordilleran cuisine like smoked beef, pork, and chicken, at an affordable price. Each meal is partnered with generous amount of vegetables; you will never fall short of various greens in every dish.
During our visit, we tried their chicken pinikpikan; a form of native dish carried out by repetitively beating a live chicken with a stick until it’s dead. The bruised meat gives it distinct flavor, making chicken pinikpikan unique.
Farmers Daughter Baguio also serves a common delicacy in Sagada known as etag. It’s a smoked pork cured with salt, and it can be partnered with the chicken pinikpikan which gives a fusion of both salty and bitter.
Our short stay in Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant was enjoyable. With huge servings and affordable price, including this place on your food trip list is surely worth it.
