Hi Burniki! Thanks for you nice comment! I'm glad you are enjoying my blog :) :) Just writing these Ilocos posts made me feel wistful too! I don't think we got to try Pipian...more for next time! :)

Hi, I'm a fan of your blog :D Yeah I recently visited Vigan and Pagudpud too and reading these posts about your Northern adventures made me feel wistful!

Anyways, you didn't try the Pipian? It's a very interesting dish, I can't make out the taste though. You'll find out what I'm talking about when you get a taste of it. Take Care!

Hi Sakai! I share your excitement :)

Hi Sub-urban Rambler! It's so nice to know this post has reached a local Ilocano :) Glad you enjoyed it...your region is so beautiful, and the food fantastic!

Hi Bordeaux! I hope to have the 2nd part up soon! :)

Hi Aria! Thanks :) The food was really amazing!

Hi Charcuterista! You make your own pancetta! How impressive :) Would love to be your neighbor, heehee :)

Hi Suzana! Bagnet is awesome in my book...albeit not the healthiest thing in the world ;)

Hi Rosa! They really were :)

Hi there Just a Plane Ride Away! Thanks for stopping by and so happy to know you enjoyed the post :)

I have to agree - the Bagnat looks fantastic! Great photo! I have a large peice of pork belly coming in this weekend - most of it is already designated as pancetta, but maybe I can use part of it for this...

Oh yes, the bagnet looks really yummy. Would love to go try it in the Beautiful Ilocos myself. Looking forward to Part 2 of this series!

i was born in ilocos [bacarra near laoag] and grew up there a bit [then hawaii, NYC, NM]. those food you depicted are in my veins and still sustain me [i try to recreate them as often as possible here in albuquerque nm or when i used to live in nyc] but i can actually conjure the characteristic aroma of each dish in my brain. it is that deep seated. great post!

Bagnet!! hot rice!! Sukang Illonggo!! home made liver sauce!!

2008-02-14T12:22:00.000+08:00

Hi Nens! I am craving too! Good thing I've got bagnet and longanisa in the freezer :) I totally agree that dinengdeng and poqui poqui were revelations...let me know when you find a good recipe and I'll do likewise :)

Hahaha! Hi Oggi! It is more than strange I think ;) Believe me, even the Ilocanos made comments!

Hi Veron! I'm sure you will like it...especially since you have had first hand experience in making your own pork belly confit (bravo!) :) Are you visiting anytime soon?

Hi Marvin! It's always nice to sneak a little Star Wars in :) Patis (which you are familiar with I believe) is the fish sauce we commonly use as a condiment or an ingredient in many dishes (this is what you use to dip your mom's lumpia in). Bagoong isda (fermented fish paste) is slightly thicker than patis, although much more liquid than the more common shrimp bagoong. It is darker than patis and cloudy...unlike patis which is clear. And ohboyohboy does it pack a punch! They also make this in Batangas where it's called Bagoong Balayan :)

Hello Tiny Mango! Thanks for dropping by :) Good to hear you have a Filipino restaurant opening nearby you...hope it's good!

2008-02-14T11:21:00.000+08:00

oh my god, longganisa, i cant even tell you the last time ive seen that..... we have a filipino food restaurant in richmond that i've been meaning to check out, called manila! manila! this has made me more excited and motivated.

"cutting through the fattiness of the pork like a culinary light saber."

Very nicely said, joey! Also, what is the difference btwn. bagoong isda and patis?

This post has made me so so so excited for my trip to the 'peens in June!

2008-02-14T04:20:00.000+08:00

Joey, that bagnet is simply a piece of heaven. I am going to make a special request for it from my brothers when I visit the Philippines.

OMG! The bagnet makes me hungry!

Poqui poqui is a strange name.:)

2008-02-13T23:40:00.000+08:00

Sigh, you're making me crave all of that wonderful food all over again! The food was indeed a highlight and I swear the dinendeng and poqui poqui were such revelations! I've vowed to try making the latter as well. :)

2008-02-13T22:19:00.000+08:00

Hi Glamah16! We are of the same mind! :)

Hi Manggy! Hehe...longanisa as therapy...is that your professional opinion? ;) Coz I definitely agree!

Hi Dhanggit! I can just imagine...when I was working abroad I would eat all Pinoy food when I would come home for holidays :) Whereabouts in the Philippines will you be headed? :)

Hi Mike! Yay! A partner in crime :)

I can take or leave bagnet and pinakbet but I think vigan longganisa once a week is good therapy for the soul :)
