Tried a slice of their strawberry shortcake. Chiffon cake was soft. Fresh sliced strawberries were a bit sour (off season), the icing a bit too sweet. Overall ok. Lessen the sweetness, then it would be perfect!

have a confession to make. I’m not a big fan of strawberries. I have always associated strawberry with the fake kind that you get in ice cream, beverages, and other food items. But Baguio has always been synonymous with strawberry. And when it comes to Strawberry Shortcake, there could only be one for that: Vizco’s Restaurant and Cake Shop

Tucked in a row of restaurants along Session Road, I’m quite sure that I have passed by this restaurant during the countless of times when I was in Baguio. And I was none the wiser.

The cake display isn’t in front of the restaurant. And you’d have to go inside to discover the treasures they’re hiding. In fact, cakes aren’t even the first food item in their signage outside the restaurant. It’s the last.

So forgive me for only discovering Baguio’s open secret just recently. 🙂

Their display chiller is every cake lover’s dream. Rows of delectable and yummy looking cakes enticing you to buy them all. But of course, we had to curb our impulsive tendencies. We saved just enough room for dessert after that big lunch.

After a few minutes of waiting, a slice each of the Strawberry Shortcake and Mango Torte landed on our table. As customary, we had to take a photo of every side of the cakes while the waiters chuckle at us. 128512

The first bite was the sweetest. The pillow-soft sponge combined with the tartness of the fresh strawberries and the sweetness of the thick cream sure tasted like heaven to me. The combination of flavors and textures melded into a nostalgic goodness in my mouth. Nostalgia because it made me remember the joys of my youth, picking out strawberries in the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad. I almost didn’t want it to end. It was also a light cake and would surely make you want to go for seconds.

I’m getting melancholic just writing about it. Oh, I’ll surely come back for a whole cake next time.

Strawberry Shortcake: Php 95/ Mango Torte: Php 125

My girlfriend and I won't be able to celebrate our 64th Monthsary on June 14 together because of my job. So we decided to have an early dinner to one of the best restaurant here in Baguio.

The Baby back Ribs is quite filling, with blue cheese dip and vegetables on the side. It's actually good for sharing depending on your appetite. Pasta Paella is also a "must try" the ingredients of a paella without the sticky rice, serving is good for 1 - 2 persons, again depending on your appetite. An authentic dish you must try when visiting Vizco's.

We've visited Vizco's several times in the past, there are many selection of dishes, pasta, pizza and cakes. Don't forget to visit Vizco's next time you visit Baguio. Food is great for a price that's very affordable.

Vizco's is my go to place whenever in Baguio, whether it be for snacks or for a full meal. Strawberry Shortcake and Strawberry Vinaigrette are my default orders. These will never go wrong.

The Strawberry Shortcake is of course, their most famous cake that anyone of any age would love to enjoy. It is sweet just right, soft, and so true to its flavor. The Strawberry Vinaigrette is delicious too. Lettuce, chicken, tomato, cheese, caramelized walnuts, ham, egg, olives, and strawberry vinaigrette are all in a bowl of unforgettable salad. We also tried their Baby Back Ribs. It was quite flavorful but not tender at all. Lastly, the Red Velvet slice of cake. I am more to hate red velvets coz I think some never get it right. So far, this is only the second red velvet flavored pastry I've ever liked, the first being that of Vanilla Cupcake Bakery's awesome red velvet cupcake. Here, theirs was quite good, so moist, and the flavor was strong enough to convince me it's better than most of red velvets out there.

Why I always would like to dine here is because they have a very good selection of food, from main dishes to light snacks. Its simple restaurant makes it true to Baguio and the serene Session Road.

THE LEGENDARY VIZCO'S STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE

The title sounds like it came straight from an anime cooking series. It might as well be legendary as everyone from Baguio City knows this cake. You are not from Baguio if you haven't tried it yet.

However, I had the chance to try it a couple of years back and it hugely disappointed me. I ordered a slice and it was quite a sad sight to see. The yellow colored chiffon was dry, rough and scratchy. The icing was bland and saggy and yes there were strawberries. I thought to myself, really, this is the famous strawberry chiffon cake that everyone likes? This is it? This was from their session road branch.

I never tried it again until a week ago. I was waiting for someone outside the grocery in SM Baguio and saw these yummy looking cakes. The strawberry topped one caught my eye and it looked horribly familiar. Well, except better than what I recalled. My cousin, who was with me at the time, pointed to it and said that a lot people say it's really good. I wrinkled my nose in disapproval, and told her about my experience. We left as I took a lingering glance at the cake. It did look better than the last time.

The next day, I wanted to surprise my cousin with something, so I bought the cake despite my inhibitions. We had it as a midnight snack with coffee after watching Insidious. And now for my re-review of the cake.

I was so surprised that it was very moist and airy. The chiffon was really fluffy and you can almost not chew anything. I guess that is a good thing for people who like airy cakes. It wasn't refrigerated for a couple of hours so I don't know if that affected the texture. The icing was sweet and thick. The strawberries were still crunchy. There's also gelatin on the top that held those strawberry slices together. It gave a sour and tangy as contrast to the whole cake.

Was I pleased? Yes. Is my opinion renewed? Yes. Is my bad experience deleted? No. Of course, I had this cake in a different branch. SM BAGUIO, so to say. They would need to deliver their bests items here. If you know what I mean. I call for another tasting test back at the session road branch as soon as I get back to Baguio.

I love their salisbury steak. The burger patty is not the usual fastfood style. It's made of soft meat and is really tasty. The price, some would say is expensive, but for me, it's enough for the food. The side dish is well cooked too. Of course, the ripe mango shake is a good pair.

Strawberry Shortcake is one of my all time favorite cakes. Buy one at the Metro either at Conti's or Mary Grace or Paper Moon and it sure is pricey. But in Baguio, where strawberries are mostly in season, you can have them at less than Php 700. Vizco's is like the Becky's of Baguio. Homey kind of cakes that ensures quality. An 8" cake is less than Php 700, and it's all strawberry written all over it. The sponge cake is strawberry flavored too with creams and strawberry at the middle and the outer layer is covered with cream and strawberry with jelly. It's not so sweet but the strawberries are not sour either. I don't know how they make this but it's a must to grab when you're in Baguio. 10084

Oreo Chocolate Cheese Cake is the real deal. So is the best selling Strawberry Cake. Both are phenomenal and both comes in affordable price. Too bad they don't have a branch here in Manila. I'm sure it will be a phenomenal hit!

Baguio trip is not complete without passing by Vizco's and get a dose of their fluffy and berry-filled Strawberry shortcake. That's two layers of strawberry chiffon cake with lots of strawberries in between. Mind you, we're talking about fresh strawberries and not the preserved ones. To top it off, loads and loads of strawberries being held together by gelatin. Icing is not sweet. Just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The sell per slice (80php), 6" round (375php), 8" round (610php), and 12" round (800+php). Vizco's also have a branch in Camp John Hay Technohub.

Aside from their specialty cakes, they also offer pasta dishes and rice dishes which I have yet to try out.

Make sure to go there early as these cakes sell like hit pancakes even if they have lots of supplies! Just to be sure that you will get to purchase a cake, you can buy cakes early and leave it with them at the store so you can still go walk along Session Road or go around Baguio for a bit. 10084127827

PS: I heard their blueberry cheesecake also tastes good. I have yet to try it though.

The famous Strawberry Shortcake is what brought us to this place. And it was sooo goood! 128522128077🏼127856128076🏼

A slice only costs Php 80.00.
The chiffon is soft and moist.
The filling also has small strawberry bits.
The sweet icing and chiffon compliments the fresh strawberries. It's the right sweetness for me and you'll come back for more.
Buy a whole cake to bring with you to Manila 'coz that's what we'll be doing. 128521

While waiting for the ukay-ukays and streetfood in Session Road to setup, Mom and Dad wanted to sip coffee first. My friend kept on insisting for me to try Vizco's Strawberry Shortcake so I did with my parents and my brother.

Prdered a slice which costs Php80. Added tea to soothe my dessert. And yes, the cake was superb!!!! Can't describe how delicious it was. Strawberries on top of the cake was covered in soft jello almost like gulaman that makes the frozen berries taste thicker and richer and sweeter.

Also fell in love with their tea! It was served in a glass full of hot water with a big slice of lemon inside, offered with honey. Oh my. You guys should try this at home because it's crazily delicious!

Place was also jampacked when we came. Their place though was big enough to accommodate customers since the other rsstaurant beside it belongs to them as well.

They offer main courses with reasonable prices but not too cheap. However I think they are really more famous with their pastries since almost all customers were having desserts there.

Place- what do you expect sa place in session road, but I think if you choose to seat upstairs you will see the city lights. Well, kahit medyo maingay we enjoyed the food.

Food- At first nangangaba ako na baka hindi sulit ang babayaran namin. But when our ordered came, napa wow lang ako. Kung gaano kalaki yung menu nila, ganun kalaki ang servings and portions of the food. Sulit na sulit. Around 200-300 okay na okay. Masarap and feel mo na hindi commercialized yung food. We also ordered the famous strawberry shortcake. Not fan of it, daming icing kasi. But if lasa lang naman masarap siya.

Staff- dahil siguro madaming tao that time (around 9pm) kaya siguro hindi kami naattendan masyado. We have to repeat yung hinihingi naming water and follow up order for our shortcake.
