Upon arriving, they told us to wait being 4th in line. 30 minutes after, i went back to the restaurant to check on our reservation. Apparently, they had let a whole group sit ahead of us who werent part of the line. One waitress told us to wait for 2hrs and 30 mins for the food. I spoke to the... More

Be sure to have a table reservation before you visit the place or be prepared to queue for quite a long time, or maybe we just visited during the peak season.

Do not leave Ilocos without dining in this resto. They serve fusion of Ilocano and continental cuisines. Dishes are unique and delicious. You can get turned off by the mixtures of their menu but once you've try it, you won't believe it certainly worked. It's a must to try Dinuguan pizza and their Basil Iced tea. This is a small...

The title really defines it all. Ilocanos are thrifty folk. So to say that this is the best Ilocano restaurant is no joke. For our family of four, we spent Php 980 and oh dear Lord we were full! Recommended dishes/drinks: Pinakbet, Ylocano longganisa, Turmeric rice, and Wild Basil Ice Tea

This is truly a unique find in Laoag. Its serves Ilocano food with Italian dishes. They served the best dinuguan pizza ever. We also ordered the Pinakbet pizza but the fish bagoong taste was just over powering for me as well as the bitter taste of ampalaya. Their Poqui Poqui is the best one i have tasted during this trip.... More

This is ilocos Nortes best kept secret and is frequented regularly by the locals which says it all. The menu offers a great selection of local traditional dishes using the finest ingredients. The waiting staff are well trained and happy to offer advice and recommendations with the menu. The atmosphere is very homely and situated within a two storey building,... More

Try the Poqui Poqui Pizza and Saramsam Pasta :-), since this a fusion type of food, It is weird in a positive way since it is not your ordinary pizza or pasta. It's like having pizza/pasta that is topped with the delicacies of the north :-)

If you are in Laoag you must take one of your meals here. Many good dishes to chose from and those we tried were all so good. Love the Saramsam pasta, pipian and kalti. Would definitely come back here! Hope they keep up the good job and it stays this way.

This was our first lunch in Laoag after arriving from the airport. It was well worth it. Our first impression of the city started looking good with the good n tasty food. Must try the following...pinakbet pizza, poque-poque pizza, Saramsan pasta, spicy sardines pasta. It seems our vacation in also turning into a food trip aside from the scenic beauty... More
