    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food : Bagnet (fried pork), Vigan Longaniza and Tinola

    Bagnet is friend pork served w/ Bagoong na isda and tomato on the side. (***)
    {good for 2-3 people; worth P150.00)

    Vigan Longaniza : native sausage at Vigan served with Astsara (***)
    {good for 2 persons; worth P90.00}

    Tinola : soup base from chicken stock, main ingredient is chicken, a little too salty for me (*)
    {good for 2-3 people; worth P170.00}

    Ambiance is : cozy relaxing spanish resturant
    Waiters : needs to be trained to be more friendly

    Empanada is a fried tortilla bread filled w/ longaniza meat, leafy vegetable and egg.

    Vigan offers two(2) kinds of Empanada:

    1) Light colored Empanada
    2) Dark Orange colored Empanada

    Better empanada is the darker colored where you can actually taste the longaniza meat ,
    what makes it even better is the ILOCOS SUKA (local vinegar)

    Worth : P30 .00- special (w/ egg) ; ordinary P25.00 w/out egg

    empanada seller (c) ukirsari

    well, empanada ... surprise that indonesia also have a snack which is looks similar so called "panada" [from manado]. it's like pastel or puff pastry with veggie and pork [in my country can be changed with beef, chicken or fish] as filling. fried and served with vinegar-soy sauce. you're not in vigan yet if not yet try empanada!

    Grandpa's Inn: Breakfast - Rice with Longanisa

    by myspices Written Oct 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    breakfast :rice and longanisa at Grandpa's Inn

    Grandpa's Cafe is inside Grandpa's Inn. Cosy little corner. Lots of photographs for you to admire while you wait for your food. See ambience of cafe in travelogue : The museum within Grandpa's Inn

    Favorite Dish: The specialty of Philippines - the longanisa, a sausage stuffed with minced meat and vegetables and deep fried. The longanisa in Grandpa's is one of the best . Served hot : skin is crunchy and the meat.. voila... yummy! The breakfast is served with a cup of oiled rice topped with garlic and spring onions, an egg, some pickled vegetables and a slice of tomatoes. Locals usually dip their longanisa in the vinegar sauce but we ate it as it is and original taste of the longanisa is maintained.

    by shawicortez Written May 26, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a quaint little coffee shop that offers specialty local meals, pastries, and beverages. their latest offering is white tea, which is known to have 5 times the anti-oxidants an average green tea has! perfect for that chocolate pan cake you gorge it with! the tea also comes in a blue teapot-and-cup set (used when a max of 2 people order / or upon request).

    Arceli's: Local eats 1

    by Yla Updated May 4, 2008

    Arceli's is actually a bread store but they also serve snacks and lunch. It's located along Florentino street just beside Plaza Maestro. Get your snackies and junk food here, but don't miss their lunches too. Some good and filling home-cookin'! By the way, this place is a nice, clean turo-turo, in which one has to point what you want and the servers place them in your tray and you bring it to your table. Pick up your drink along the way from the refrigerators at the side.

    How to be billed? Just before you finish your meal, a staff comes to you and compute your expenses, write details in a piece of paper, and which you bring to the cashier near the exit when you leave the premises.

    You got to try their Pinanglaw

    by simply_lanie Updated May 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    there are many carinderias on the side entrance of baluarte. Better try "Pinanglaw" it is like Nilagang Goto that i tasted in Batangas. Yummy. just ask for the plain one (does not have bitter taste). Small order costs P20 while large one is P30.

    Uno Grille: Good Food, Good Ambiance

    by yynnaa Written Jul 16, 2007

    On the night of our anniversary, we didnt know where to eat because we have already tried all the local restaurants. We were tempted to just have our anniversary dinner at Max's Resto, but fortunately, I remember that we havent tried Uno Grill yet. So we walked towards it and when we came inside, I was immediately surprised by the romantic ambiance and the very nice design of the outdoor restaurant. It's not a very large place but it has long tables for bigger groups and tables for couples at the side. It's more like a garden restaurant, which gives the romantic ambiance. They have a good variety of dishes to choose from, and the price is average. I definitely recommend this restaurant to first timers in vigan, and to couples on a date.

    Favorite Dish: It is indicated in our Vigan itenerary that we have to try all the local food including the Ilocano Tinola. We've looked and asked all over vigan for this dish, and we thought we would go home without trying it. Thanks to Uno Grille because they cooked and served us this delicious soup. It has native chicken and the taste of the soup is strong, gingerly and spiry. We loved it!

    Grandpa's Inn: Breakfast - Rice with Fried Fish.. my fav

    by myspices Updated Oct 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    breakfast :rice and fish at Grandpa's Inn

    Grandpa's Cafe is inside Grandpa's Inn. Cosy little corner. Lots of photographs for you to admire while you wait for your food. See ambience of cafe in travelogue : The museum within Grandpa's Inn

    Favorite Dish: Yes.. it is breakfast - a real heavy one! I simply love the rice! and eating it with the crispy fried fish makes it even more tasty. The rice is soft and slightly oiled with garlic, topped with spring onions. The fish looks overfried but is actually not - it must be the sauce they applied that gave it a darker look. They have winged out (flattened) the fish for easy eating. I ate the fish - the whole lot of it... er-hem .. chew up the bones too as they were so crispy you won't choke !

    The breakfast dish is beautifully garnished : fried egg, slice of tomatoes, some pickled vegetables. For sauce : vinegar.

    gordion inn resto: bangus and garlic rice

    breakfast at gordion inn (c) ukirsari

    just know that "garlic rice" mentioned in the menu just exactly similar with fried rice in my country so called "nasi goreng". well, maybe a coincidence but this point make me more comfy in trying some ilocano food. garlic rice with omelette and bangus [milk fish] and coleslaw and banana plus orange or pineapple juice were my best choice for breakfast in vigan :)

    Favorite Dish: garlic rice and bangus and smoked fish [mackerel]

    McDonalds/Jollibee/Chowking: Fastfood Restaurants Follow You Everywhere

    Same food. Only the restaurants' architecture that catches one's eyes. Preserving the heritage look of the place, these fastfood restaurants exterior designs blend well with the adjacent buildings.

    Favorite Dish: When travelling and passing by the place and want fast food to go, plus some fast snap shots, get your usual city fast food here which i am sure the kids travelling with you wont complain, being their usual fare.

    I was wondering what Bagnet was prior to visiting Ilocos. It's just like lechon kawali slash chicharon. Only with a different kind of sauce. People with high bps, beware. It is very tempting but heath comes first. =)
    Their longganisa is second only to Cebu's longganisa but it tastes good all the same

    Cafe' Floresita: Special Vigan Specialties

    Cafe Floresita
    3 more images

    Cafe Floresita's interior is quite dim, but it goes well with its warm, rustic ambience.

    Favorite Dish: The Vigan longanisa breakfast meal we had on our first day was a welcome treat; quite heavy to give you enough energy for the day's tour. It included a big cupful of fried garlic rice, sunny side up egg, achara (pickled papaya), Vigan miki (noodle soup cooked in unique sour Vigan way), and choice of coffe, tea or chocolate drink.
