Tunnel Vision

Max's, Vigan

On a roadtrip to Abra in the Cordillera Administrative Region with Leehua and Marion, stopped by Vigan for maka-tulo-laway Filipino food at Max’s. You will see Vigan bagnet, kare-kare, tokwa’t bagnet (a take on tokwa’t baboy), pakbet (that is more like bulanglang) and pinaputok na bangus (milkfish). Because I grew up in Ilocos Norte, I am biased to the bagnet we call chicharon in Laoag, yet Vigan bagnet entices just the same. The skin is not as “nakarsi” and “nasarangsang” as Laoag’s, but the fat part is chewy to the bite, sweet and very malasa, perfect with the subtle flavors of the bugguong they use at Max’s.

  1. Do you just park your car somewhere near the tunnel and take a chance to snap a shot when there’s no passing vehicle? Haha. I love to have a shot in this spot someday.
