On our way back to Manila coming from Vigan, Ilocos Sur, we dropped by San Fernando, La Union in February this year. We didn’t get to try surfing, to which the province is known for as the ‘surfing capital of the North’; but we surely didn’t miss out feasting on the food available at ‘Halo Halo de Iloko’.
Nestled in an unlikely place to go since it’s not quite accessible as any commercial restaurants situated in the center of San Fernando. It sits on Zandueta Street, even with its remote address, still people flock to the said tourist attraction.
The homelike ambiance that the establishment offers is inviting enough for guests to try and really eat what’s in the menu.
Diners will be greeted by its photowall-like backdrop with colorful trimmings. Vintage stuff also adorned the place and give it a certain character that makes the guests wanting for more since the cozy restaurant offers delectable dishes.
Now that summer is fast-approaching, ‘Halo Halo de Iloko’ takes pride in its mouth-watery halo-halo. It is more ideal to try the special halo-halo and give its diners that #cravingsachieved and #satisfactionguaranteed. Many who visited the dining area, (but unlikely to be that place)—still recommends to local and international tourists to not miss having that cold ‘halo-halo’ as a dessert.
Other food stuff that would-be diners could look forward to are—Grilled Kurita or octopus; Tinuno nga Bangus Belly, ParyoKBL, Okoy Tikyosko! But the LaUnionganisa is worth the try as well. The Sinampalukang Buknok is a must as well.
The restaurant that is fast-becoming a tourist attraction is open on Sundays through Saturdays at 9AM–9PM. To contact ‘Halo Halo de Iloko’ can be reached via telephone at (072) 700 2030. Visit its facebook via @halohalodeiloko.balay or IG via @halohalodeilokobalay.
