This native-inspired dining place located 1-kilometer north of the Manaoag Shrine offers the best tasting Ilocandia dishes such as Tapang Kalabaw, Longganisang Iloko, Sinigang na Malaga, Inihaw na Hito, Pinakbet, Daing na Espada, Igado, and Kaldereta, among others. Also worth commending is their one of a kind pickled mango appetizer. The place is very cozy and relaxing. The prices are very affordable as well.

Just a few kms. from the church (I don't have exact address, but any local can help you with directions on how to go there) is the Virgin's Well where reportedly, water miraculously sprang from a field in a valley owned by a farmer who dreamt of Our Lady of Manaoag instructing him to give out healing water to the sick. When we went there years ago, there was no road going down to the valley, and our car had to traverse bumpy dirt road.
Faucets have been installed to make it easier for pilgrims to get water. We were allowed to get free healing water; fortunately, we had empty mineral water bottles. There are some enterprising locals who sell big plastic bottles to pilgrims who don't have empty bottles.
There is a small pool, as well as some private cubicles where sick pilgrims can take a dip or shower. Miraculous healings have reportedly been witnessed.
To make it even much easier for pilgrims to avail of the healing water from the Virgin's Well, the Dominicans have gotten a regular supply of the water, and freely give to interested pilgrims upon request. Just bring your empty mineral water bottle or Holy Water bottle to the counter near the Vehicle Blessing Area and the church volunteer will gladly fill it up for you. (Please!!! No pails or drums!!! )
