I've been living here in Baguio for more than a year now, and I must say that the selection of local resto is getting thinner and thinner by the day. Aside from the fact that most of them are set up as 'cafes' that only offer sweets and a monotonous selection of western foods; pasta, pizza, buffalo wings, etc., the lack of savory and other international dishes are also becoming a drag when deciding what to eat on my cheat day.
Fortunately, last January on one of my jogs at the athletic bowl, I met this sweet guy who happens to co-own a resto around the outskirt of town, Ranee House of Curry.
The restaurant is more than decent, aside from being clean and well-lighted, I can vouch that it's picturesque.
And it becomes cozier at night, plus the fact that they are also pet friendly.
Their menu consists of a wide selection of Indian food and a few international favorites from their sister restaurant Felipé 25.
Most of their ingredients are locally procured to guarantee freshness; such as their meats and veggies. The head chef and his partners themselves alternately buy most of it from the local market at the heart of the city, 3-4 times a week. But to guarantee the delicate taste of Indian cuisine, their spices and other key ingredients are procured by a middle man from India and they buy it to him/her.
Aside from their food and picturesque ambiance, they are also becoming well-known for their superb customer service. They have wifi and sockets that could be used by customers who would like to work there and tho they only have a few street parking, the owners would definitely help you with it, just ask for their assistance.
The staff of this local resto is a mixture of Baguio locals, Palaweños, Ilocanos, Kapampangans, and Tagalogs. Most of them have worked together for around five years which made their service smooth.
