Turf Lounge & Bar is the newest and hippest gastrolounge in Baguio City serving high end beer and liquors as well as gourmet food and snacks. A sister restaurant of Zola and Purple, Turf also keeps a trendy and stylish interior with the latest hit music playing at the background. It is currently THE "To See and be Seen" place for Baguio City's cosmopolitan society.
First thing you will notice is the wide open spaces inside Turf. Something you will rarely see in Baguio City's entertainment establishments nowadays. Turf is also divided into thematic segments. First is the loooong bar with its high wall covered with their display of beer and liquor bottles. You will really get overwhelmed by their selection.
There's also the "guy area" dominated by the billiard tables. The walls are also decorated with old-school gears and gadgets, as well as posters of "cool guy movies". On another corner are Pacman arcade machines which add more to the old-school feel of the place.
There's also the music lounge where guests can seat on wide and comfortable lounges while enjoying their company of friends, or indulge on Turf's drinks offerings while listening to live music.
And there is the "girls area" featuring colorful and stylish lounges and fancy wall decors. It sets the mood for some girl talk or heart-to-heart conversations with your girlfriends.
There's really a spot for everyone. It's no wonder it became a big hit to Baguio City folks. More than the great place, Turf also takes pride in its gastronomic offerings. The menu was created by Chef Reniel of Zola and Purple, and the items are only available at Turf.
Here are some of the food we sampled during our visit at Turf:
Poached Chicken Leg with cream sauce and served with rice and salad, we love the tender meat of the chicken and the creaminess of the sauce makes it a perfect match with rice
Pork Rugout served with rice and salad, we loved the mushroom sauce and the pork was perfectly cooked to tenderness, we'd love to have extra rice with this one
Crispy Pata was a big hit to everyone, the skin was very crispy!
Ensalada Fiesta: the green mango salad balances the rich flavor of the grilled pork
Spicy Pork with Coconut Cream, this dish will make you love spicy food because the flavors were well balanced, the spiciness does not overpower
Stir Fried Beef with Mixed Vegetables the vegetables are really fresh and crunchy!
Garlic Chicken Wings would make a great partner with beer
Chili con Fries is a great combination of thick potato fries topped with chili con carne, must be a best-seller coz we all love it!
Onion Burst forget about onion rings, this is a more artistic way of serving this favorite pulutan
Frozen Peanut Butter Cream Cake we loved this one because we like peanut butter flavored desserts, reminds us of Reese's
Overall, Turf Lounge is a great place to hang out with your friends, enjoying the company over great food and drinks. It's an ideal place to unwind after a long day at work or school, or after a tiring day of exploring Baguio City. Thank you very much Turf for inviting us over at your great great place, we enjoyed the food!
