I first heard of this “native resto” from the hubby. Following in his footsteps is wonted.
We actually got famished on our way home from San Juan. The Savellano-owned Cabugao restaurant is a good roadside eatery, located between Laoag and Vigan, serving old time favorites packed with local flavors. The ambiance is suggestive of an Ilocano ranch-style home.
-I especially loved the wicked opia a la mode, a simple dessert of vanilla ice cream on a sweet crackling fan-shaped barquillo down a stream of chocolate syrup.
-(Clockwise) Ilocos longaniza (Ilocano sausage links), garlic mushrooms, Pinoy pork BBQ, miki (soup). The longaniza were tiny, really bitin. The hearty miki was huge, though, that I had to share it with the hubby.
The service was good, quick, and for the boozers, brown bottle is cheap. Warning: Don’t drink and drive.
