After reading Lori’s entry on a bakeshop that sold raisin bread better than Baguio Country Club’s famous raisin bread we went looking for it.
We got a little lost following Lori’s instructions. So here’s how we got there. After exiting Camp John Hay’s Loakan gate turn left and after approximately 1.5 km you will see it on your right.
There were many kinds of bread but I followed what Lori said was good. I tried the long johns which were about 6″ of fried bread stuffed with cheese. I loved it so much. The bread wasn’t oily yet it was dense and chewy. It had a slight hint of sweetness with saltiness from the cheese. I brought back 6 pieces to Manila. I should have bought a dozen and kept it in the freezer. The long john costs P9 each.
Deb loved the pan de coco and she bought 20 pieces. It costs P6 each.
We arrived at 11:20 am and the raisin bread just came out of the kitchen was still warm. I had a loaf sliced so everyone could try it.
After receiving a hard and dry raisin bread from Baguio Country Club as a gift I was wary to buy it again. Palaganas Bakery’s raisin bread was soft, moist and filled with a generous quantity of large and plump raisins and lots of cinnamon. I really liked it. It was good even after 2 days in room temperature. It kept in the refrigerator for 5 more days and tasted even better when toasted.
Only Deb and I bought raisin bread. The others still preferred BCC’s raisin bread though. I wonder why.

Later that night we decided to stay home in our jammies and ordered pizza for dinner.
It was my first time to try Carlo’s Pizza and I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the super thin crust and the toppings were generous. Everyone’s favorite was the 4 cheese pizza with chunks of blue cheese.

Carlo’s Pizza doesn’t deliver to Baguio Country Club for reasons unknown so we just picked it up.

Our dinner consisted of pizza, cheese, wine and Patron. Happy, happy, happy!
Drinking in your bedroom is a good thing! The bed is just a few spins away.
