O’ Mai Khan

February 16, 2012 in Casual Dining, Food Adventures, O' Mai Khan, Restaurants, Where to Eat in Baguio? by Ane Fallarme

O’ Mai Khan is probably one of the oldest and best restaurants in Baguio City. It started out as a small restaurant in Otek Street, near Rizal Park, but now it has a bigger and better building located in Upper Session Road, just a few blocks away from SM City Baguio. It is now more accessible to more people as parking is no longer a problem, well it’s still a problem because it’s fully packed most of the time. Smile with tongue out

Anyway, I’ve always been a fan of O’ Mai Khan’s food and have been there a couple of times with friends and then with B, back in the old branch in Otek Street. The food is always great and the ambiance is absolutely perfect for a date or perhaps an intimate family dinner or a date.

O’ Mai Khan is a word play of the Ilocano phrase “umay kan” which literally means, come on or let’s go. However, it is a Mongolian restaurant. I find it very creative how the phrase somewhat sounds Chinese, the owners were even creative enough to have created a back story about how everything began.

You can read the back story on their menus while waiting to be seated. If you have no reservations, you must wait outside, so I suggest you call in ahead or bring a really thick jacket so you don’t freeze outside. Smile with tongue out
