There are more pastries to try at the Tribeca coffee shop by the Valdez Center. I chanced upon their monstrous slices of fine oatmeal cookies and brownies during the holidays, but they were not available when I last went, so my date and I shared a slice of New York cheesecake and an espresso walnut muffin. Better shared with someone, their homemade muffins are big and dense.The cheesecake was a tad too sweet for my taste, but the texture was good.
Tribeca doesn’t scrimp on ingredients. It is probably one of the reasons loyal patrons keep going back.

Ilocos Norte travelers who dislike the hassle of expensive and complicated transit will love the location of the new Viven Hotel, smack in the middle of the thriving Valdez Center in San Nicolas.
It is housed in the 365 Plaza, where shopping, dining and leisure are right outside its doors. Robinsons Ilocos is a stone’s throw away while a Casino Filipino is next door.
Keep relaxed in any of Viven Hotel’s sixteen classy, unfussy Wi-Fi-convenient standard and deluxe rooms, with snug and extra comfy beds and flat screen TVs. Catch the promo rates.
Laoag is a rough 10 minutes away. Actually, I took a tricycab to go to Viven Hotel:)
Thanks to the hotel operations supervisor, Ms. Tricia Domingo, and friendly staff, Argen, Garet and Kate.
