Their Empanada is too oily and it is not crunchy. I did not enjoy their empanada at all and the taste is far from the other Ilocos empanadas I have tasted. Their ilocos vinegar was great though. Nothing special here and their empanadas are smaller than the others. I hope they would improve the taste of their products.

Ferinos is a great Ilocos Empanada brand. What makes them different aside from the orange empanada color is that their empanadas are stuffed with unripe papaya and monggo sprouts. So their plain empanadas are great for vegetarians. What I love most is their special empanadas since they have a sausage and egg added in there and when eaten it tastes... More

When I first visited this branch, I was quite surprised with the prices of their food. However, thinking that it was because of how it is cooked, and knowing that Ilocos food is one of the best, then price should not be a problem. I bought empanada on my first visit (it was not good but it was not bad... More

We visited this place, not satisfied and disappointed. I tried their empanada, it was greasy and taste of an old oil. Perhaps its the oil they are using cause everything else taste almost the same. It's worth taking a trip to Batac, Ilocos Norte. Try Bernadette's or Beth empanada besides the plaza stadium (well thats where it was). Make sure... More

Earlier today, August 25, 2013, Sunday, I had lunch with my family at Emapanada Nation Sgt. Esguerra Avenue, Quezon City. I heard that their Ilocos empanada are to die for, so I tried it. It would also be an opportunity for me to review two (2) competing restaurants serving the same product. The place was ok although there are no... More

my first taste of an authentic ilocos empanada was on a trip with the rest of the family to Ilocandia many summers ago. We've learned that there are several variants of empanadas in ilocos but what we were able to sample was the vigan variant. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely that we were having cravings for it months... More

Every ingredient that goes into the empanada is an authentic Ilocano delicacy. The dough, longaniza (and optional bagnet), and vinegar made me recall my experience when I last ate at Vigan City center where the empanadas are fried. I am so pleased with what was served that I went there twice this week for dinner! Be forewarned tho, it's just... More

the empanada looks good but too much grease, you'll eat it but will have to wait another long time to eat it again.

tried Ilocos empanada one summer ago in Batac and Vigan (Like most people, I prefer the empanada from Batac). There is definitely no need to go to Ilocos anymore to try the famous Ilocos empanada. I am so happy that I found Farinas Ilocos empanada. They have the authentic Ilocos empanada from Laoag, which is the same with the empanada... More
