Dinuguan Pizza @ Saramsam Restaurant, Ilocos Norte

Saramsam is the sister restaurant of Herencia Cafe. Food here is so great! It is located in Laoag and is right beside a karaoke place, so if you easily get annoyed with people singing the wrong tunes, you may want to visit during the day rather than dinner time.

Dinuguan Pizza
This is a must!
The highlight of my food fest! I know it seems disgusting, but it’s realllly goooood! Next time I visit, I won’t eat anything else so I’ll have space for this!


Saramsam Pasta
Mangoes, tomatoes, onions, garlic and cheese. This is a best seller in Saramsam and I would have to say that I am a fan as well. If you put chili oil and bagoong balayan = PERFECT!


Tuna Pasta
Ordered by Tita M and Tita N. It’s a bit on the spicy side.

Poque-poque pizza
This is ideal for vegetarians. It's made of crushed eggplant, tomatoes, onions and cheese. Better with loads of chili oil!

Poque-poque up close!

Iced tea with Basil
People usually order this with their food. I found it interesting since the taste of the basil is just right.

For sale!:)

I think I prefer Saramsam to Herencia. The service here is more personal and it's closer to the house of J's family. Next time I go to Ilocos, I will definitely try the other pizzas.

Cheers to more Dinuguan Pizza!:)

  1. I saw your pinapaitang baka's picture and although I don't eat pinapaitan, that picture makes me wanna try it. I have been wanting to try foods that I am scared to eat. Maybe i will find more good food in your blog. For original recipe, you can try to visit

  2. I have lived on Boracay apartments for 15 years and loved the place so much i built cohiba. These are the Biggest and Best value for money apartments on the island period ! Every apartment has stunning sea views and 30m2 to 40m2 balconies with which to enjoy it. We are overlooking the windsurfing / kitesurfing bay where the season goes from November to april. Its either a great sport to participate, or great to just sit on your huge terrace and watch.
