“Glad to be here and get a taste of their good food again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Received text from Gina, owner and wife of Chef Alvin, sometime Oct 2013 about it's re-opening in new (original) location: "SELAMAT DATANG! SAWADEE dear patrons,
Chef's Home is now back to its original location at #13 Purok 3, Outlook Drive. So come on over, sit down, relax and dine to all your favourite cuisine of Taste of Asia Mon- Sat 11am-3pm / 6-9pm."
But it was only quite recently that we finally got back to Chef's Home. Hole in the Wall, carinderia type, no frills, just the good ol' crispy Thai Papaya Salad and Salt/Pepper Squid capped with a Roti dessert. We were just glad to be here and get a taste of their good food again.

“Simple but really good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We tried their deep fried chicken, cream dory and their vanilla ice cream with crispy roti, sesame seeds and peaches. They were really good. Serving size can be good for 2. We also liked their nasi goreng.

The place is just beside the Baguio Townhouse. It's a small place with a carenderia feel to it. Overall a must-try.

“One of the best places to eat in Baguio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Their menu is never the same and every time I have been in here, Alvin always has a great new menu to choose from. If you want cooking from scratch, this is the place. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

“Back to it's Original Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

It is back in it's original location! Chef's Home: A Taste of Asia in Outlook Drive. And for the second try - it is still consistently a wonderful experience to dine at this place. First time we went to Baguio, I read in blogs that this was a must try in Baguio. The whole family enjoyed the meal so much we promised ourselves we would go back.

So for our next trip to Baguio, our first meal was at Chef's Home. Excitement built up when we saw the white facade and discreet sign of the restaurant. The Murtabak Beef, Crispy Papaya Salad and Tom Yum had wonderful flavors. And of course, we left space for our dessert - Roti Chef's Home with Coffee Sauce and Bananas. I agree with the blogs I have read. This is a must try restaurant in Baguio.
