The Laperal House in Baguio is famous as a haunted joint. The century-old house would often get featured in the Halloween episodes of popular television programs in the 80’s and 90’s with matching eerie background music and low-cost dramatization of ghost sightings. After being purchased by a successful Fil-Chi businessman Lucio Tan in 2007, the Victorian-style house underwent modern renovations but still preserved its structural integrity and style. It even became a bamboo museum in 2013 featuring Ifugao works made out of bamboo and wood.

Today, the house has transformed again, this time into a fine dining restaurant under a new name: Joseph’s.

According to its website, Joseph’s menu is developed byJoseph Sembrano, a young French chef with more than 15 years of experience including a decade of service in a Michelin-star restaurant. He is joined by a talented home cook and seasoned restaurateur in training the kitchen crew to ensure the quality of their food.

Joseph’s plans on sourcing its ingredients locally while pairing them with premium meats and seafood obtained from various brands locally and internationally. Baguio certainly has great produce harvested from the Cordillera mountains and to imagine them cooked with premium ingredients using classic French-cooking techniques is quite a delight.

Some of the moutherwatering dishes you can already expect include Pork Roulade (bacon-wrapped tenderloin with baby potatoes, arugula, blue cheese, and mustard cream), Salmon Fillet (grilled salmon with zucchini and bearnaise sauce), and Angus Rib eye that’s good for 3-4 and comes three sides. They also have multi-course menus available that are suited for various fine-dining budgets. There’s also a children’s menu if you’re bringing the kids along.
