Vessel Hostel

Recommendation posted 2 months ago

My go-to hostel in La Union! It’s always fully booked, so always plan months in advance if you want to stay here. The place is immaculately clean, the beds and sheets are amazing, and even their common areas are well-maintained. 10/10!

Barefoot La Union

Recommendation posted 21 days ago

Our first meal upon arriving in San Juan. Barefoot serves a bunch of good meals (I ordered Tapsilog), but my favorite out of everything would be the homemade bread from Masa Bakehouse! #BreadisLife

Clean Beach Coffee

Recommendation posted 21 days ago

Went to Clean Beach for a light breakfast of their Kaya Toast paired with the Spiced Vanilla. The place looks great for hanging out, but we weren’t able to do that yet during our visit. Looking forward to coming back to do just that!

Mamba's Kitchen

Recommendation posted 2 months ago

If after a five-hour bus ride, you crave for comfort food like me, head over to Mamba’s for some honest-to-goodness Filipino breakfast meals. I personally always go for the Tocilog (tocino, rice, and egg), but I think the Baconsilog is good, too!

Sabong Fried Chicken

Recommendation posted 2 months ago

Sabong serves satisfying fried chicken meals, perfect for lunch or dinner. They have different flavors, including Elyu Original (classic), Korean Soy, Honey Bagoong, and Chick’n Morty (spicy). One order is a big meal, with three pieces of chicken, rice, and a side depending on the variant you order. Not bad for about ₱250 (US$5).

El Union Coffee

Recommendation posted 2 months ago

Have a good, good, good morning (or afternoon or evening) here! Get fuel for the day with a Dirty Horchata and a Smorito—my “combo meal” at El Union. The shop is located in a complex named Great Northwestern, which gives you easy access to the beach as well. A+!

Leche Ice Cream

Recommendation posted 2 months ago

Go to Leche to try unique ice cream concoctions based on popular Filipino desserts and other weird flavors! We tried about six flavors, and these are my favorites: 1. Bilo-Bilo - Bilo-Bilo are sticky rice balls, a popular ingredient in “ginataan” or sweet coconut milk soup. Leche’s Bilo-Bilo ice cream features ube ice cream topped with coconut, sweet potato and banana chips, and—of course—bilo-bilo. My favorite! 2. Champorado + Tuyo - Champorado is a sweet chocolate rice porridge from the PH. Leche’s ice cream version is a scoop of dark chocolate ice cream topped with dried fish. Don’t ask me how it works. It just does. 3. Cocomangsi - Coconut + Mango + Calamansi. Three of the most popular Filipino flavors coming together in one scoop of coconut ice cream topped with dried mango, calamansi, and rice crispies. Yum! Bonus: Kape + Yosi (Coffee + Cigarettes) - Coffee ice cream flavored with Cherrywood chips so it has a weird cigarette after-taste. An experience.
