Enroute to Vigan, our family & friends decided to had late lunch at Saramsam. This time around we got the directions right (our 3 previous visits to Laoag was futile). The landmark is Balay da Blas and Saramsam is located inside the hotel. Don't miss the "S" sign. The restaurant is an old & nostalgic 2storey home converted to a... More

Our team had dinner here and we ordered dishes with names that we do not understand. It was worth the try. Not the usual meals and dessert that one finds in Manila. For me, the taste is just right. By the way, the place is adorned with great art. Terrific ambience inside.

Upon arriving at Balay da Blas (the place were we are staying), without reading any reviews about the place, we decided to try it out.. Surprisingly, the resto had a delightful ambiance. I like the interior of the place, the theme and the decors (we wished that there was no foul smell of floorwax). We tried their pasta, spicy tuna... More

The food took a while to be served but I understand why. Each of the dish we ordered was GOOD!!! Our favorite is the Insarabasab. It went so well with the poque-poque. And for the finalé Kalti for dessert!

Had to try this place before we go. We ordered their pasta and tried their fondue dessert. All with Ilocano twist. The place is nice and cozy. Very relaxing and conducive for bonding. Thumbs up!

Will never be tired of eating here whenever I'm in Laoag. Been here twice. Must try are Insarabasab, Dinakdakan and their tea with wild basil (forgot the name). Two thumbs up! 😊

May 2009 - Before heading to our Ilandia invasion, we made sure to do our research as to where we should eat and what places to visit aside from the usual ones. Back then, Saramsam Ylocano was said to have the best bagnet in Laoag! So, we didn't waste our chance to give it a try! Their Bagnet is heavenly!!!... More

Always reliable and consistent. Pretty good service and well-trained staff. Also, stayed at Balay da Blas (hotel of the restaurant) and quality was consistent all throughout.
