Ilocos at Market Market!

In Market Market, there are various stalls showcasing food products of almost all regions in the Philippines, and Ilocos is not an exception.


The food stall is called “Manang Biday ti Ilocos” and it sells almost all the more popular foods of Ilocos whether processed or not. Ilocos garlic, vinegar, bagnet, chichacorn (the crispier version of the “cornic”) and even “inabel”, name it, they might just have it. It actually gave me the idea of telling somebody that I will go to Ilocos without actually being there and just buy “pasalubong” from Manang Biday huh!


There’s also another food stall of the famous Ilocos “empanada” in Market Market (Open Market Area) called “Taco Empanada.”

By the way, I almost had a bad experience taking the images here. I asked permission from the storekeepers if I can take some pictures of the store and they said, yes. After several shots, however, I noticed that one of them went away only to find out that she called the attention of a guard, maybe to tell that I was taking pictures or whatever. Taking my queue from other bloggers how difficult it is to take pictures in malls for whatever reasons the owners may have, I stopped taking pictures and went away. I said my thanks anyway.

    Reed wine really is good for the heart. In fact,our family doctor advised us to drink a glass daily- no joke! And we do. Look at the French and Italians- they drink red wine all the time and they have the lowest rate of heart attack. So plant the unas!
