Carne Asada Burrito only at Tacos del Norte

Carne Asada Burrito

What did the burrito say after eating?

I’m stuffed.

Tacos del Norte

Hahah, forever the quesadillas girl, Alexa is the perfect eating buddy at Tacos del Norte in the La Tabacalera Ilocano Lifestyle Center. Tacos del Norte is the only place in Laoag for Mexican cuisine. It’s got to be decadent carne asada burrito with marinated beef and beans for me. ‘Coz avocados are not in season, I got an Ilocano-Mexican amigo. To think that we’re in the northern tip of the Philippines, my burrito and Alexa’s quesadillas were gratifying nonetheless!

I like dawdling at the taco stand, the piped music surely always makes me feel like I’m somewhere in California. BTW, Ericke has found work in LA. She’s starting another chapter in marketing. Oh, how the family miss her much! Before finding work, she thought of joining the US Army. Sharing her latest pics.

Share Tea one drink a day challenge: Passionfruit, orange and grapefruit tea

Passionfruit, Orange and Grapefruit Tea

My eating buddies Marianne and Joan picked me up for a Share Tea date, but I took them first to the now open Tacos del Norte (check out photos below). I got passionfruit, orange and grapefruit tea to go with the soft taco and burrito. The fruity tea was a perfect choice. It is a crisp mix of bold passionfruit, and citrus notes, topped off with a subtle salty plum twist. Slightly buttery, yet delightfully thirst-quenching. One of Share Tea’s better teas.

We got to chat with Hanson Chua and it’s nice to know that Share Tea brews their own tea leaves and never use powdered mixes unlike other teashops.


The dried plum which I didn’t notice while sipping my tea.

Marianne and Joan had beef soft tacos while I had fish, and we got one more fish burrito to sample. They use cabbage for the tacos while Iceberg lettuce is used for the burrito. Both were good. The rice mix was flavorful and I got excited seeing guacamole, making it authentic Mexican. Happy tres amigas.
