“Best home-cooked Ilocano food”
Review of AJ's Seafood House

AJ's Seafood House
Ranked #13 of 55 Restaurants in Laoag
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 April 2018

Ilocano food doesn't have to come expensive. AJ's Seafood house is a simple lutong bahay restaurant where you can select native dishes at a cheap price. Yes expect for several minutes for food to be cooked but you won't be disappointed.

This is not a high-end restaurant so don't expect much of the grandeur. However, celebrities frequent this place because of the food! A must try experience for all wanderlusts.

The best of Ilocano food in one roof, we tried several dishes and everything was good from the vegetables to meat, fish and squid. As a squid lover, their adobong pusit is a winner, rarely that I get that heavenly adobong pusit! Cooking time takes some time 30mins but it was worth the wait. One can play sungka while waiting for the food. Food are served on coconut shells! Serving is good for 2-3 persons and food is surprisingly cheap! For non locals the restaurant is far from the plaza and is a bit difficult to locate. No wifi, best to catch uo with friends and families! Highly recommended

Great food and cheap! As previously reviewed, the service needs improvement. But the place needs renovation desperately

We had to wait for 30-40 minutes before the ordered food was served. Food tasted just right/average. Our van driver recommended to go to AJ's but sadly, our experience in trying local food fare "karinderia" style was not worth it.
