Mario’s Baguio

My only request to The Bossman while in Baguio was to eat at Mario’s for one of our meals. Ever since we got to try Mario’s Classic Caesar Salad, there was no going back. We became instant & loyal fans of this pillar of a restaurant.

Without fail, and through the years, Mario’s classic cesar salad has become our benchmark for all other caesar salads that have we have come to encounter. Alas, not one restaurant has exceeded our expectations for this simple veggie dish.

The Bossman did not disappoint. He granted my one & only request. Lunch at Mario’s as the culmination to our wonderful 3-day Baguio adventure. First on my list, the classic caesar salad of course! <3


40 years and counting. Excellence everyday. Exceptional meals, Elegant service. The Mario’s Way.

        Nakaka-miss nga ang Baguio. I used to go on day trips there, even when the trip took 8 hours or more, hahaha… Dyan ko nga gusto mag-retire dati, pero ngayon parang nahuhumaling na ako sa Davao, hehehe

        Sama ako sa Vigan!!! hahaha…

    I’m a big fan of Caesar’s salad, but many restaurants can’t get it right.
