The plan to have dinner at Hill Station was cancelled…and was moved earlier to lunch because 50’s Diner along Leonard Wood Road near the Laperal White House was full-packed.

I was surprised that the cab driver did not know where Hill Station was even I had already enumarated Casa Vallejo, Baguio Cinematheque, and Mt. Cloud Bookshop that were located in the same building as Hill Station. So I just told him to go to Upper Session Road. Coming from Leonard Wood Road, we made a sharp left turn (almost a U-turn) going to Upper Session Road. Then I saw the attractive sign post at the left side of the road after about three seconds. Hill Station is basically near SM City Baguio.

The entrance to Hill Station was a bit dark even during broad daylight. It may not look appealing.

Welcome to Hill Station
But the view of the inside at the doorway may change one’s mind. Wide windows with white curtains tied to the sides surround the larger area at the far end making the room bright and look even cleaner. White and salmon pink cushioned chairs surround the tables that were set for fine dining, a few classy Christmas decors were hanging at the ceiling. I so loved the ambiance of the place!

We chose to be seated at a cozy corner with table for two.

Hill Station had special menu for the month of November.

But we had these for lunch:

House favorite: Slow Roast Beef (U.S.) with mashed potatoes (or mountain rice) ang vegetables (P490)
Moroccan Spiced Baby Back Ribs (slow roasted then charbroiled, served with moros y christianos; P395)

They tasted so good. The combination of spices added to the tender meat made our palates happy.

Reserve the best for last. The main reason why I chose to dine at Hill Station was to satisfy my sweet tooth with their Ice Cream Palette.

Ice Cream Palette: scoops of Dark Chocolate with Cayenne, Benguet Coffee with Choco Chips, Salted Caramel, Vanilla Cinnamon, Green Tea ice cream in an artist's palette saucer (P199)

The saucer after all the ice cream melted in our mouths looked like we just finished painting…with dessert spoons as our brush.
