Planning on chillin’ in the beautiful City of Baguio? Why not enjoy a burger while you’re at it!

My girlfriend, her family and I went on a trip to Baguio earlier this year. We also went to check out the local burger places. There’s a handful of joints in that city so I’m giving you a list of the DO’s and Don’t TRY restaurants in the place to save you some trouble!

Let’s start with the No-No!
