In the heart of Baguio City, Happy Tummy is a Thai inspired restaurant that boasts a very traditional but cozy ambiance of the metropolis. Originally, we were planning to take our lunch at the Ketchup Food Community. However, the place was packed so opted to visit the branch near Hill Station.

Once inside, you will notice that the restaurant is al fresco. The place is very simple and unassuming but in a good way. The interior is made out of wood as well as the tables and counter tops. It gave us a chill homey vibe perfect for a lazy day.

Contrary to their branch at Ketchup Food Community, this Happy Tummy is still open for more customers and you no longer have to wait in line.

Before leaving our place, we’ve already planned out what we’ll be having for lunch. So it didn’t took us a while before placing an order. The server was polite and very engaging Also, the service was fast.

We started our meal with Chicken Tom Yum. At first, I was a bit hesitant to try it because it looks pale. But once I got a hold of the soup, I must say that it was great. The consistency of the broth was perfect. The vegetables were not soggy and the chicken was tender. So far, this was closest I’ve ever been to an authentic Tom Yum.

Our main course includes a large order of garlic rice, Thai Fried chicken and Fried Tilapia both with tamarind sauce. The food was served hot. The chicken was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I love how it was perfectly cooked and the side dish were crunchy and looks fresh. One of the viands that we had was suggested by the server. Happy tummy made a huge overhaul of the humble local favorite. Just like the chicken, it was served to perfection.

Happy Tummy is the perfect place to have your family lunch or dinner with friends. The menu is a faultless combination of Filipino and Thai cuisines which you will surely like. I am planning to try their Pad Thai, satay and curry on my next visit.

To have a quick glimpse on the menu, here’s what I can share to you.
