I Heart Saramsam Café, and here comes Saramsam Too

If you’re tired of pinakbet and  longganisa cooked the same old way, Saramsam Café is unrivaled for specialty Ilocano dishes with a twist. I swear, they have the best Ilocano-Mexican fusion pasta — The Saramsam Pasta. I guess it’s only them who make the dish —  spaghetti al dente with chopped Philippine mangoes, tomatoes, red bell peppers, cilantro and onions, shrimp morsels, grated parmesan cheese with a dash of bugguong and chili oil. For pizza lovers, there’s pinakbet, longganisa, poque-poque, carbonara with tirem, or oysters, pepperoni, and many more. They also have the best beef stew I’ve ever tasted. It’s similar to the caldereta, but tastier because it has black olives, and is cooked in healthy olive oil. Their baraniw iced tea is simply refreshing. It has to be bottomless.

Saramsam Too is right beside Saramsam Café and Consignment Shop, along Rizal St. in Laoag. It’s a chill place with nice and cozy ambiance, lounge music and great food from the Saramsam kitchen. It hasn’t actually opened, but Sam Blas, the cool and creative owner, opened it for a friend’s birthday party. The bruschetta with spicy tuna dip is super. I also liked the veggie salad with mansanitas and vinaigrette dressing. Gosh, Sam, I envy you.
