Just because I love the food here, let me tell you about Herencia. We were looking forward to lunch, or at least I was, coming from the Kapurpurawan rock formations in Burgos, where I tried to get shots of myself pretending to do sand stone surfing or whatever you call it. No, we were’nt really tired and hungry as the stops we went to in this Lakbay Norte leg didn’t need a lot of calorie burning. We were also able to try freshly baked bread at the Pasuquin Biscocho place except I got to eat a half-baked one. It’s my first time to accidentally eat dough (as if I ever did)!
What’s the verdict? Is the food here good or what?
Strategically located in front of the Paoay Church in Ilocos Norte, Herencia Cafe. Forgive me for being ignorant of this place for the years that I have been coming back to Paoay and other parts of Ilocos, but the food here is spectacular – thank God I was able to join Lakbay Norte. Of course, I may be overstating as I am not a food critique, but allow the evidence of empty dish plates give you a hint.

Herencia offers authentic Ilocano food and recipes that embody the Ilocano cuisine – like pinakbet pizza. They maybe the first restaurant to offer pinakbet pizza, I wouldn’t know, I didn’t ask since I was too busy enjoying their food , but their pizza varieties will satisfy your palate as it did mine. The bagnet pizza was truly a treat. They also have other international cuisine just in case you’re interested.
Giniling na ensaladang talong or something like that
I’m making Herencia Cafe a regular stop whenever I am in Paoay. Maybe you will too.
