Going up north, north of Laoag, translates to photo vomit. It starts with fresh biscocho from the Pasuquin Bakery and ends with “tres dulces” at Bergblick where you can savor bagnet prepared the professional Bavarian way by Chef Detlev Cotte. In between munches and de rigueur explication through the 7-hour northern exposure, at least if you’re with me, you will experience the highlights of the northern Ilocos coastline, yet there is more to thread — the max you can have due to time constraint.
