This resto is superb. featured in a newspaper article. i just saw the clipping in the resto frames. anyway, i was actually surprised to find a very fine resto in this far far away north.
BergBlick means in front of a mountain. true enough that the mountains in fronting the facade of the resto.
Favorite Dish: Ilocandia Express - mixed vegestable with coconut milk, chili and topped with crispy bagnet
and a lot more
i am not good in resto reviews but i can assure you that you can have a delectable choices of appretizer, soup, main course, desserts, refreshment and beers. actually german beer. =]
The resto is nice, clean. but the food is not so impressive. but if you have no other option to eat, you can simply order the bagnet (ilocos' best), pinakbet, and their chicken curry. we tried ordering a lot more, but i suggest you take these. =]
Favorite Dish: bagnet (ilocos' best)
Who would've have imagined there was a German Restaurant in the far flung town of Pagudpod? It was a pleasant surprise for us. The restaurant is in Barangay Burayoc, Pagudpod, perpendicular to the National Highway. It's a cozy place with a contemporary clean look. Their menu is quite extensive, with pansit as a part of it. We would have wanted to order their German Sausage Platter with Sauerkraut, but we couldnt get the majority vote, so we settled for their Potato Wedges, Breaded Chicken Breast, Pork Ribs BBQ and Tuna Pasta. The Potato Wedges were great, and so was the Breaded Chicken Breast. The Tuna Pasta was quite unusual, though, since it had cabbage in it. I'm not sure if that's how the Germans really make it or maybe the chef (who was the German, by the way) simply improvised. Food was more expensive compared to the usual restaurants in Ilocos, but the interesting flavors made it worth it. The servings of the food we ordered were good for only 1 person, but I'm not sure if other orders are for sharing. We spent around P1,000.00 for 4 persons.
The restaurant is in the ground floor of the Texicano Hotel. Their menu is quite extensive, with local and international dishes. Breakfast cost P150 which included coffee or chocolate drink, 2 eggs cooked the way you like it, fried rice, fruit and a choice of either Laoag longganisa, tocino, tapa or bacon. Since we were in Laoag, we ordered the longganisa but only 1 piece was served. We had to order extra (P35/piece) to satisfy us. Average cost of lunch is almost the same.
Favorite Dish: The longganisa was good, much better than the one we tried at Vigan. It had the right amount of garlicky salty taste, and didn't have much fat in it.
A small, cozy place with lots of antique stuffs... food is great...
Favorite Dish: their pizzas - pinakbet, dinuguan, poque-poque
wild basil iced tea
Saramsam Pasta - with green bellpepper, green & ripe mango, fresh tomatoes, olive oil, onion, shrimp, cilantro and parmesan cheese plus you'll add chili oil and shrimp paste, never thought it'll be a good pasta recipe!
their maja blanca or should i say, corn panna cotta(it's different from the usual maja blanca that we know)
dragon fruit flower lumpia
La Preciosa Restaurant was an excellent alternative to the hotel restaurant we stayed in. We had buffet meals which offered more than enough food,and they even obliged to pack our breakfast when we left the hotel early to go to Burgos Lighthouse. The ambience is good,with a gourmet resto look. It has a wide array of ala carte food,and you can even request (well,in our case,they obliged) for something you fancy,and they will be happy to prepare it as long as they have the ingredients. They have mouth-watering desserts,too.
Favorite Dish: I like all,except their version of pinakbet. Sorry,maybe I just got used to a different style of cooking- I can't eat small ampalaya with the seeds,and I don't want my vegetables overcooked.
I dined here with my husband and friends in April 2008. We were looking around Laoag City for a good place to eat local food and chanced upon this place.
The first thing that caught our attention was the nice facade and the charming interior design. The attendants were friendly and helpful, although when the place soon became packed with people hungry for Sunday lunch, the service became slower by the minute.
However, I give this place two thumbs up for the food. The price is comparable to the average restaurants in Manila - around PHP 150-200 per person for rice, entree and drink.
I recommend this to all those who would like to get a taste of Ilocano cuisine. Perhaps, it would be also wise to call to reserve a table, especially for lunch time on a weekend.
Favorite Dish: A definite must-try is the Bagbet - a lovely combination of two of Ilocos' favorite dishes, Bagnet and Pinakbet. Bagnet is the lethal delicacy of pork (complete with fat and skin) that's deep-fried twice; Pinakbet is basically sauteed vegetables that has some tomato-based sauce.
For our first taste of Ilocano cuisine, we made reservations at La Preciosa in Laoag. It was almost 2pm so we must have missed the lunch crowd. Starving by then, we were so excited to eat, not just any food but good Ilocano food! So we ordered what I will later declare as my top three Ilocano dishes (the Batac empanada is a snack and I will get to that later:) ): poqui-poqui , bagnet and dinengdeng. Everything was excellent!
Favorite Dish: The poqui-poqui, dinengdeng, bagnet, all of it!
The restaurant has better food selections compared with the other resorts but the servings are smaller and the prices are steeper. But take note, we went to Ilocos during the peak season. The prices may go down during off-peak periods.
Favorite Dish: Bagnet - YUmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!
The prices were a bit steep and the food is of average quality. The food lacks sophistication but the servings are large and filling for 4-6 people.
PEAK SEASON: 1 dish is PHP 400.00
RICE: PHP 12.00 per cup
You can go to the market to buy food and just have it cooked at Polaris for a minimal charge of PHP 50.00. Expect the food to be served in about 2 hours though, especially if there is a long cue of orders.
Favorite Dish: GOOD - Fried Chicken, Grilled Liempo
AVERAGE - Beef Tapa, Beef Steak
If you're looking for yummy yet reasonable food, i suggest that you look for papa pau's...we really love the sisig and it cost about P120...serving is good for 2 to 3 people...try also the ribs steak...
This is one of the reasons why I keep comin back in Vigan.. you can eat inside when its warm outside or
when you dine here at night you can sit outside and have a good view of the plaza and crisologo street
Favorite Dish: Bagnet is the most popular dish here..
Sisig is also a must try ..it's different from the ones served in Pampanga because theirs is much crispier..
they also serve delicious authentic Italian pizza :D
it's a cozy resto with a touch of home.... the food is great, just right quantity...
Favorite Dish: - Crispy Dinuguan
- Pinakbet (ofcourse)
- Carrot cake
