We were at the height of the tourist season and the restaurant was full. But because it was highly recommended we decided to wait for an hour past lunch to line up. I looked forward to the pinakbet pizza which one of us tried before. What a disappointment! The pizza had missing ingredients (few vegetables and no bagoong). The other dishes were also average and quite pricey for the amount and taste. The staff tried their best to serve us but we were missing forks and spoons and had to ask for them. There were just too many customers and few waiters.

We went here because we were referred by a friend. So, we were so excited and drove from Laoag to this restaurant. However, when we arrived it was full. So, we just sat at the waiting area to be approached by the staff. But, no one budged. We approached one staff and just looked at us. Another person pointed us to another person, so we asked that person politely if we can be listed at the waitlist. She just looked at us. Then we saw a table with two chairs available and asked her if we can take it, she just raised her hand as if saying talk to the hand. Maybe because there were just the three of us and they will not make a lot of money from us that is why we were not treated as a customer. So, we decided to go outside and just find another place to dine as it is nearing 2:00pm and we have a kid in tow.

I was wondering how Pinakbet pizza might taste because in the Philippines, Pinakbet is considered as a viand. To my surprise, it was really good. It's pizza includes veggie toppings like okra, tomatoes, string beans, onions, and bitter gourd that is topped with mozzarella cheese. Yummy! It's a must try when you visit Ilocos Norte located near Paoay Church.

We had a satisfying snack here in Harencia Cafe. Great location, clean and cozy. We like it here. A nice spot for a short breath after the day's walk.

There's really nothing special about the food here, if one is looking for Ilocano food. The servings, in fact, are rather small for their price.
