Last year between Christmas and New Year we went on a tour of Ilocos Norte and we were in for a surprise, or rather shock. The province is awesome with so many places to visit. But at that time, there so many tourists that restaurants were jam-packed. And except in Laoag and Vigan, where restaurants were aplenty (although at that time all were also jam-packed; imagine lining up for Greenwhich, Jolibee and MacDonalds in Ilocos because all local restaurants were full), there are not so many eating places in the province. Luckily, the long-time yaya of my wife, who we visited, directed us to the eatery of her nephew, who used to be the cook of a ship. And we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived: very good food and table settings to boot. We had more than our full of the buffet at a very low price.
So when we went back this December, we made it a point to eat there. It now has a signage Ysabel eatery. We were served a full course meal of salad, STEAK, and dessert of fresh fruits. I have never eaten a steak that thick with salad and dessert for P180.
Other patrons were eating cordon bleu, pasta, breakfast fare, among others The patrons were a mix of students, locals, and tourists. (A testament to the delicious food, the variety of choices and the reasonable price range.)
What a treat!
