More than the cold climate, it’s only recently when I’ve started to realize that Baguio has this thing about cheap food and big servings.
One such place is 50s Diner along Leonard Wood Road. Taking it from its name, it’s a classic recreation of an American diner from the 1950s. The look and feel of the place is definitely a blast from the past, not to mention the old jukebox by the corner.
But more than the theme is the food. And that’s where we made a beautiful mistake. My colleagues and I were hoping for a light breakfast so maybe the diner had pancakes and sandwiches of which I opted for over rice meals and heavy dishes.
So looking at the menu, we got a BLT, a cheese sandwich, cheeseburger, and a fruit medley. And on top of that, we got soup and milkshakes just in case we ordered too little.
Turns out, when the food arrived, the servings were twice the size that we expected. And our initial thought of ordering too little now became too much!
It’s interesting because the price, based on size, is only half of what you usually pay for in Manila.
Quality wise, their food isn’t the best tasting, but if you are after the quantity then its definitely worth it!
