Here's Where You Can Find Ilocos Bagnet And Fresh Ilocos Empanadas!

You don't need to go on a road trip!

When in Ilocos, one of the dishes on your buck-eat list is the bagnet. Did you know that Ilocos bagnet is often referred to as chicharon by the Ilocanos? You can definitely eat this as chicharon and dip it in spiced sukang Iloko, but you can also pair it with a mountain of steamed rice for a heftier, heartier, sinfully delicious meal.

For those who haven't tried nor haven't heard of Ilocos empanada, these are orange-hued crunchy empanadas that are filled with crumbled Ilocos longganisa, slices of papaya, and an egg. It's a combination of a sweet and savory filling which, similar to Ilocos bagnet, is best dipped in sukang Iloko.
