We have the longganisa breakfast meal with coffee at Saramsam. Service is average but I would have liked to have the longganisa, egg and rice served hot. Everything is quite cold considering that we went there very early in the morning.

I love Ilokano food but Saramsam really made it special. Love their okoy, tamarind juice (very addictive), poque poque, dinuguan pizza, dinakdakan, igado, .... and even the humble tinola is delicious here. Serving time can be a bit long, it's worth it though. Staff is...More
