Oh My Gulay! sa Session Road



Baguio’s cool, overcast skies and rainy afternoon weather makes it so inviting to lounge in caf├ęs, especially in an artists’ haven that drifts you away from the bustles of the city when you’re actually in the heart of it.




Tucked at the top level of La Azotea building along Session Road in Baguio is Oh My Gulay – which on your first visit confuses you on your purpose of taking the flights of steps to the discreet resto, err, arts haven.




Owned by artist Kidlat Tahimik (Eric De Guia), the place is a mini- museum sort of intriguing visual arts.

For the food part, there’s just a limited choice on juices and coffee, salads and pastas and desserts(crepes). Some are so uniquely named in the menu as much as the atmosphere is. How about “Anak ng Putanesca” for your pasta? Menu below is on high resolution, you may click to enlarge






My tastebuds are now much inclined to simple, tangy and a bit bland food, ones where I can identify what’s been into the sauces and spices, so Oh My Gulay’s menu suits me.





It’s nice to come as a group to share plates. When sharing among three, a per person cost is around PhP 200. For the very hungry and voracious eater, you would need to spend more (or in our case, we trek up to SM for our main course, anything in OMG is our appetiser J).

In between waiting for the food and after, a tour around shows that much of the artistic displays are wooden sculptures that mirror the Ifugao skill in the region.






For more of above Oh My Gulay's photos overload, the resto is at the 5th floor of La Azotea building along Session Road in Baguio.

  2. Hi Kayni,

    His profile at wiki says he is. But Baguio people knows him more coming from a prominent family doning a 'wanes' whenever he is on the papers.
