Here’s What You Should Eat in Every Region in Luzon

Traveling can be delicious!

Region I is located northwest of Luzon and is comprised of 4 provinces: Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, La Union, and Pangasinan. The region boasts of delicious food, historical cities, and amazing sights. First timers should visit the Bangui windmills, Calle Crisologo, and Pagudpud beaches.

A food trip around the cities will entail you to try at least one of Ilocos’ signature dishes or most famous food. This includes the Filipino favorite bagnet, or the deep fried chunks of pork. Bagoong-based vegetables in soup are also famous in Ilocos such as the pinakbet and dinengdeng. Sure you could find these at any decent restaurant in Manila, but in Ilocos, the dishes are more authentic and made with fresh ingredients. This is also the home of empanadas and its different variants.
