Looking for a place to eat good empanada in Laoag? Here’s a find. Alicia’s Empanada was mentioned by celebrity chef Sandy Daza of Wooden Spoon and the Lifestyle Network’s FoodPrints, but I only remembered about it while hanging out with Eugene and Michael the other night. Chef Sandy was so accurate. I was super bannawag on this one.
I never liked cabbage in Ilocos empanada, so Alicia’s papaya empanada with flavorful Laoag longaniza makes the cut. The shell is crispy thin, but gets somewhat messier to eat ‘coz part of the filling falls off every time you bite into it. Maybe they could improve the wrapping better and this empanada gets a perfect 10.
Alicia’s Empanada is at the Dap-ayan ti Ilocos foodcourt near the Provincial Capitol. You have to ask around ‘coz the stalls have taken down their placards.
