Saramsam Ylocano Restaurant and Bar is also a Consignment Shop

poque-poque pizza

Dining at Saramsam is an epicurean delight. They serve traditional Ilocano dishes with a modern flair. Poque-poque salad, made from grilled eggplants, tomatoes and native onions, comes alive when used as topping for pizza. Same is true with dinardaraan (chocolate meat). Their original Saramsam Pasta I’ve been raving about just tops.

I know I haven’t shown you the other half of the Saramsam equation. If you’re  a tourist and pressed for time sourcing for pasalubong, or goodwill gifts, Saramsam has an array of local food items, bric-à-brac, abel Iloco products, souvenir tees, paintings and antique stuff.

    • why are native bags so expensive abroad? the one on the right with fringes (2nd photo) would be a great beach bag, hahah, in California. Do you have a beach near you place, I wonder?
