Kuya Harold told us that the local government stopped allowing tourists to climb a part of the rock formation due to vandalism and also for safety since the rocks tend to be fragile. I hope those who visit the place will also help preserve this wonderful masterpiece of nature.
Best time to visit is early morning to avoid the harsh sun and the crowd since it can be a bit crowded when all tourist arrives at the same time. And most importantly, bring water for hydration since there are no shade in the area.
Let me start this post by greeting everyone a Happy New Year! I will be breaking my Ilocos series first and continue after this post. Dec...

We started out with just one product: Lechon Porchetta. Porchetta is simply known as roasted boneless pork with crisp, crackling skin. Look at that skin! Makes me hungry at this time!

- Fiesta Fried Rice - fried rice mixed with scrambled egg, chorizo, green peas and bell pepper. This I like so much! It was so flavorful that I can eat it alone.

- Bagnet Sisig - definitely a must try! What can go wrong with bagnet and sisig?
- Dinengdeng - an Ilocano dish similar to Pinakbet but contains fewer vegetables and more bagoong soup base.
- Sizzling Bangus - almost the same as Bagnet Sisig only that it is made of bangus belly.
