Lunch at Fort Ilocandia

Thursday, January 16, 2014
We had so much fun at the 4x4 adventure over at the sand dunes that The Memet and I were famished when were done. Add to that, it was already close to 2pm when we left the dunes.

Not knowing exactly where to go for lunch, we drove on, only thinking we needed to get to Laoag. Now, what I love about Ilocos is that there are signs everywhere. You can't go there and miss key tourist spots because they have huge signs along the road. So, on the way to Laoag, not very far from the dunes, we saw a sign for Fort Ilocandia. The only thing we could think about at that time was... OOHHH! LUNCH! Haha! So dine we did. :)

We were so hungry that when we got there, we made a beeline for the first restaurant that we saw. It's the first one to the left after you pass the grand lobby.

The food was okay. Above-average, I'd say. The serving portions were good. The carbonara in the picture above didn't look much, but in reality, there was so much that I had a hard time finishing it. Haha! Prices were okay. Slightly expensive, but not over the top, considering the resto's in a hotel. I'd say we averaged around P300 per person.

After eating, we took a walk around the place.

It's a huge resort, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. But you'd be surprised at how well-kept the place is. The people there were also friendly. The Memet even had a good chat with the 2 guys at the reception area while I was at the restrooms. They gave him tips on the other places we should visit while we were in the area. :)

I'm not sure how much a room costs in Fort Ilocandia, but here's a link to their website: You might want to consider them if you want to stay in the area. Again, though, it's sort of in the middle of nowhere. Haha! The closest places to it are the sand dunes and the Malacañang of the North. Oh, and the Paoay Lake. That's about it. ;)
