Hi Sakai! It was really delicious! :)

Hi Mike! Thank you! And thanks for all the information :) Lucky you...you're back to Ilocos! Please send my regards to Doc Cuanang, Rene, and Gani if you see them! I think either Gani or somebody else did mention that...sigh, all the more reason to return! :)

Hi Remil! That sounds like our "kwek-kwek"...I like the quail egg ones! :)

2008-02-23T08:22:00.000+08:00

I’m originally from Malabon, and they have what’s called “Que-Que”. They’re deep fried whole eggs. And they’re also as brightly colored as those empanadas. The eggs can range from the little quail eggs to the regular chicken eggs. Sometimes you can even find fried balut. Yummy!!!!! I’m going home in April and I think I’ll pass by Batac.

2008-02-22T19:03:00.000+08:00

Marvin,

Badoc is the southernmost town of Ilocos Norte and 15 minutes away from Sitio Remedios . . .

Joey,

Did Gani tell you about Mino's - that Italian Chef based in Badoc? He operates an al-fresco diner in his garage in Badoc serving Italian dishes . . .

2008-02-22T18:59:00.000+08:00

Joey,

Great post and photos . . . I'm too far behind my Ilocos Norte post na and here I am looking forward to my 7th visit next month :-)

Manngy,

The colour comes from annatto (atsuete) but I think most empanada makers now use food colouring . . .

2008-02-20T23:18:00.000+08:00

Hi Dhanggit! A lot! Haha! :) I'm not counting calories this year ;)

Thanks Oggi! You want to know something funny...I actually don't eat candy floss...but I like the way it looks :)

Hi Marvin! Badoc (which we passed) is in the southern part of Ilocos Norte. It's next to Currimao (which is where Sitio Remedios, is)! I don't know how close time-wise but I can find out (pretty close though because it is closer to Currimao than Laoag is, which is where we landed). If you guys have a car, you can hit most of the places we went to easily :) The furthest would be Pagudpud which it at the northern tip of Ilocos. Katrina doesn't have a blog...although we all try to convince her! That's her multiply :)

Thanks Tiny Mango! :) I think I must have eaten my weight in food on this trip!

2008-02-20T11:49:00.000+08:00

oh my lord, how pretty that empanada picture is. and they sound delicious. sausage and papaya. and in a bright orange dough! yum. gorgeous entry, yet again.

2008-02-20T03:48:00.000+08:00

keep these posts coming joey! I am actually beginning to plan my trip now and I get more excited as i read your blogs.

How far is Sitio Remedios from Badoc? Maybe I can work in a visit to that resort if it is close enough.

p.s. does katrina have her own blog now?!! Where is it! I must see it! oooohhh, you girls and your inner circles! ;P

2008-02-19T23:38:00.000+08:00

Beautiful photos! I love the candy floss machine with the vegetables and fried stuff.
Hot chocolate and biscocho, nakakagutom!:-)

2008-02-19T21:08:00.000+08:00

hi Joey, tell me the truth how many pounds did you gain hehehe :-) seeing all those yummy food I'm jealous!
these posts on ilocos that you've made is a heaven sent online travel foodie guide :-)

2008-02-19T18:12:00.000+08:00

Hi Manggy! Haha! We wouldn't want to be too close to a pan full of hot oil either :) I'm not quite sure what makes the dough orange...I suspect it's the same food coloring used in kwek-kwek because, c'mon, it is exactly the same color as kwek-kwek and they also sold kwek-kwek in the same stall ;) I like the "raw" biscocho better than the toasted one :)

Hi Veron! It was good :) I'm craving some hot choco now...

Hi Socky! Yay! Glad to have a second opinion :) I loved the empanada from Batac! I believe the owner of Sitio Remedios has changed/improved some things from when MM stayed there...although I must say, give me an ancestral-looking cottage by the sea and I really won't ask for more :)

Hi Midge! Haha! I got hungry just writing this post! :)

Hi Katiez! It was :) I love the sea…

Hi Jaden! No matter where I go, I always look for a feast to devour…heehee :)

Hi Bee! Thanks! I love fresh coconut juice too (here we say buko juice)…you should try it with a bit of rum for an island-style cocktail…yum!

Hi Carina! I’d love to go back and see more of it :) Yes, we saw the windmills…one of my favorite sites! I don’t think I was expecting to get as impressed as I was…

Hi Katrina! Just saw your Bohol pics…really lovely! Yes, I love those meals when the good vibes (due to good company) is just so palpable so feel you can almost taste it along with the good food! And of course the atmosphere plays its part too :) I loved that soft biscocho – when you ask for it you just say “soft biscocho”…as in you can buy hard biscocho (which is redundant) or soft biscocho (which is contradictory) – whatever the case may be…it’s yummy, so I’ll call it whatever they tell me to call it :)

Hi Megumi! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a nice comment :) Glad you enjoyed the post!

2008-02-19T16:51:00.000+08:00

First timer here and I'm so impressed with your pictures! They are all artistically taken. Ang galing ;)Your blog is great too. Very interesting topics. A good read!

2008-02-19T15:48:00.000+08:00

I know just what you mean by the ambience and company contributing just as much (or even more) as the food to the entire meal experience. I had a dinner just like that in Bohol (by the way, Part 1 is already posted, Part 2 coming up). I live for those moments! :-)

That picture of the soft biscocho calls out to me! Look at all those layers inside it! Yum, yum...bread... Do they really call it biscocho before it's been toasted, though? I mean, doesn't biscocho mean bread that is twice-baked and crunchy, therefore it should be called something else when it hasn't been?

2008-02-19T13:43:00.001+08:00

i've been to the ilocos region a number of times already and i always enjoyed my stay. yes, the empanada, dinengneng, lato, bagnet, chichacorn...have you seen the windmills? nice no?

2008-02-19T13:43:00.000+08:00

Colorful pictures...I love them. Love those empanada and the two freshilicious coconut! I drink fresh coconut juice whenever I go home to MY...so good! Here I have to opt for frozen ones. Bleh.

You're holiday sounds wonderful! I would love to hear those crashing waves...and sleep in the canopy bed...sigh....

Hi, Joey! Goodness me: all that achuete-orange empanada just fresh from the pan! Biscocho and hot chocolate! I knew I should have had a proper breakfast before reading your blog today. Now, I'm soo hungry...

2008-02-19T08:19:00.000+08:00

Your guide is right: best ilocano empanada is in batac! Looking forward to your post on Sitio Remedios. I remember marketman had a not-too-good review of the place.

2008-02-18T22:29:00.000+08:00

I was wondering why Ms. Empanada cook was so far from the pan... It's probably smarter that she is, haha :) Do you know what makes the dough orange? I've never had one like that. I haven't had too many Ilocano empanadas in my life, as I'm not much of a vinegar-dipper.. I may convert soon, though :)
That "raw" biscocho looks yummy! Anong say mo, we have our own twice-baked "biscotti." I wonder if anybody eats a once-baked biscotti.
