Although I’m still biased towards Eng-Bee-Tin when it comes to hopia, Baker’s Hill in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, was still a good visit for me. I was much impressed by the homey and relaxing feel of the gardens of this bakeshop. Baked products are good too. Baker’s Hill specializes in hopia, but what I liked most was their pizza.
Baker’s Hill is usually part of city tour packages offered by travel agencies. City tours also include a trip to Viet Ville, Mitra’s Farm, Crocodile Farm, and tiangge for good, cheap buys. Tourists can avail of packaged tours which costs around 600 pesos per person. We, however, decided to hire tricycles to tour us around the city.
Tricycles charge 500 pesos for a half-day tour of the city. If it’s beyond half day, they would change 700. This is still okay, especially if you are touring as a group. Trykes are also more lenient when it comes to staying in one place longer. We decided to hang out at Baker’s Hill the longest, just to relax a bit, eat a lot, and let the children play.
Baker’s Hill is nicely designed, zen-like and decorated with small, pretty details and items characteristic of the province. Baker’s Hill felt like a very relaxing place, an ideal place for families and groups of friends just wanting to chill out, chat, eat good baked goods.
