An appetizer dish from Ilocos and similar to Pampanga's sisig. It is broiled and grilled pig parts (face, ear and liver) then chopped into small pieces tossed with ginger, calamansi/vinegar, onion, pepper, chili pepper and last but not the least pig 🐷 BRAINs! Yes, pig brains for the authentic ilocano taste experience. Can you take it??? If not just tell them to use mayonnaise instead.

Pinakbet is a local dish from Ilocos Region. It is a variation of vegetables such as eggplant(talong), string beans(sitaw), bitter melon(ampalaya), lady fingers(okra) and tomato(kamatis) cooked in shrimp/fish paste. Herencia Cafe is one of the first food store in Paoay, Ilocos Norte served fusion of local dish and comfort food: Pinakbet + Pizza = Pinakbet Pizza πŸ•
At first, it sounded so weird but when I/we tried it 😲😲😲 SARAP! It was really delicious!!! Instead of catsup which we usually put in our pizza, in pinakbet pizza better use and drizzle with bagoong (shrimp/fish sauce)
Recommendation: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Tokyo cafe also offers crepes and we tried their very berry. It is a crepe with bluberries, a scoop of strawberry ice cream and drizzled with starwberry syrup.
This one is a great combination of sweet, sour, and buttery flavour playing in your tastebuds every bite.

Coffee jelly with scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream topped with whipped cream and drizzled by chocolate syrup.
The 2 scoops of ice cream over power the flavour of coffee so it like your only eating a regular ice cream with jelly. I recommend to use different ice cream flavour that will empower its bitter but sweet taste of coffee jelly.

Java rice topped with raisin, julienne cut of mixed vegetables, tartar sauce with sliced of lemon, fish fillet and last but not the least the pork ribs.
I like the whole pan and it made my tummy so happy and full. Ohhh! the ribs πŸ–, so tender, so juicy and savoury. One of the must try when you dine in fish&co.

TOSH is specialized in serving pasta dishes but me and my friends is a bit disappointed on their dishes. My other post us about Alfredo pasta and now this a Seafood Alfredo. So the plain Alfredo pasta just added a 3 pcs. of mussels and 2 pcs. of shrimp is already worth 100 pesos from the price of php 140 on a plain pasta alfredo πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž.

Php 140.00+
Another pasta offer from TOSH (The Old Spaghetti House) is Alfredo. They used regular spaghetti instead of fettuccine pasta. And another plain pasta dish with a white sauce. Just ordinary, not so creamy and so plain.

Php 98.00+
Such a plain pasta with garlic bread, no topping at all except for the garlic bits and parsley. Very affordable, good size serving and the taste of garlic really sticked on the pasta ang make it nice and flavourful.

Php 199.00+
All day, Everyday Unlimited Chicken and Calamares promotion of Uncle Cheffy is one of the bestπŸ‘Š. The baked and fried chicken is not so oily, juicy and flavourful. Calamares is fried very well, crunchy, tender and not the rubbery texture. The roasted chicken Maurino is seasoned with a sweet-barbeques sauce but I like the baked chicken better.

Php 275.00
Uncle Cheffy' s Brick oven panizza with beef teriyaki, pork, chicken barbeque, onion and chili flakes, basil and cheese. The pizza taste πŸ‘Œ superb. Bbq meat is very tasty and tender. But we're dissapointed at the same time, they serve only few bbq meats then some of it were bones. The best part is, where is the chili flakes and basil 😠???
I still recommend their brick oven panizza because its worth trying and the price is affordable.

Mango tart is simply soft, temptingly tasty and mouthwatering. Conti's, one of the restaurants in the Philippines that I missed so much πŸ˜πŸ°πŸ˜‹ when I'm overseas. This tart is need to be put in freezer to keep its best texture and won't go runny. This is a must try cake tart by Conti's and their Mango Bravo Cake πŸ‘.

> half rack classic pork ribs
> half southern favorite fried chicken
> any choice of 2 large side dishes
> rice platter
> a pitcher of drink
Worthy to spend your money sometimes πŸ‘
β€’ For side dishes we decided to try pasta salad & mac & cheese. About the 2 side dishes: for the taste, it was really good and luscious but what I like the most is their pasta salad. They use 2 colors of fusilli and make it more appetizing and yummy.
β€’ Racks Fried Chicken - I can say that this one is a flavourful, not so oily which is good and crunchy chicken but the downside is, it was a bit dry in the inside.
β€’ Racks classic pork ribs - this is my first time to try this dish and my verdict describes it all, the meat was very succulent πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.
