With 7,107 islands to choose from in the tropical country of the Philippines, it makes sense to get kids started early with traveling. However, most parents get intimidated with taking their brood to transport transfers, car/plane rides or the thought of serving them whatever local food available. So travel we must, took kids to Caramoan Islands, Polillo Island, Baguio tour and recently, took an Ilocos tour with kids and family. Read on as I pick up on where I left off with my food review adventure while travelling with kids around Ilocos.
Saramsam Restaurant is best known for their bagnet, pinakbet and pansit. Kids enjoyed these with rice. But the first thing that greets you when you get there is the old feel of the resto. It brings you back to a time when all we had were calesas on the cobbled streets and all we wore were barong at saya. My nieces and nephews vacationing from overseas had most fun taking pictures around the resto interiors and of course, not missing out on the Pinoy food they have missed so much.
Iced tea flavor may be too strong for kids, though. Serve them chilled fruit juice or serve them water/soda (like we did).
