Stayed for week at Balay da Blas in Laoag and one of my most cherished experience is sampling the local food. Good thing that this Laoag popular vacation house has a true gem and it's called Saramsam.
The word Saramsam is an Ilocano word meaning "a fun casual way to dine" which is perfect for this charming place. Saramsam restaurant is a must visit tourist destination when in Laoag not only for their delectable dishes but for the cozy Filipino ambiance that connotes priceless heritage of our culture.
|Saramsam has a unique ancestral home ambiance. Filled with antique decors and artifacts depicting Filipino culture.|
|Cozy outdoor dining area and great place to unwind with a bottle of beer and a tasty original Pinakbet Pizza.|
|Inside the main dining hall. The interior of Saramsam will surely take you into another era.|
|Ceilings in this restaurant are not spared from the lavish decor. Above our table is a beautiful antique chandelier and a magnificent ceiling treatment which is totally mind-blowing!|
|Pizzas are serve with a twist. Injected with Ilocano flare that creates a unique experience in your taste buds.|
|One long table with an antique wooden church bench of the bygone era. Notice the paintings and wall decor timeless pieces.|
|Seating options upstairs.|
|My ultimate favorite. Saramsam signature Fresh Tamarind Juice. I can drink a whole pitcher of this refreshing drink. Nothing like it on the planet!|
|Wall murals and lavish antique decor adorned the second floor dining area.|
