To say I love Ilocano Food is an understatement, believe it or not, Ilocos is one of the regions in the country where the food excites me as much as the sights. On the second to the last day of our Lakbay Norte 2 tour, we ventured to Herencia Cafe, just in front of the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Ssite of San Agustin Church in Paoay. Such a perfect spot where we not only get to see a stunning heritage church, we also got to enjoy the culinary heritage of Ilocos.

Real good food with the absence of impurities and natural is done by going back to nature. In my recent Tour with Lakbay Norte 2, we visited the isolated forest town of Adams in Ilocos Norte. After our hike to visit Anuplig falls, we had a late lunch where they served us meals which they consider organic. It’s those simple dishes with ingredients freshly hand picked from their surroundings which made them good on their own.
What happens if a young surfer couple decides to build a resort, stumble upon this beautiful spot in the middle of nowhere at Maira-ira Cove, constructs a tastefully east-meets-west design edifice, serve food with ingredients freshly picked from their garden and then regale you with stories in upbeat fashion? That’s Kapuluan Vista Resort for you. We drove hours under the stormy weather during the Lakbay Norte 2 and was glad to find this warm and comfortable place for the night just in time for dinner.
