After learning, enjoying, and burning my skin on the surfing lessons earlier I retire to our room to find the group of Fitz there. Their room wasn't available that time so Jonel let them stay first at our room while they wait for the previous tenants to vacate the next room. To my luck, they were also planning to have lunch outside San Juan Beach Resort, so after that I ask them if I could join them and they welcomed me. I also got the chance to have new acquaintances and new blog friends.
We rode a jeepney to the city and rode take another ride via tricycle to Halo-halo de Iloko, which is just a couple of walks away from were we rode the tricycle. So after that we finally arrived at the destination, HaloHalo de Iloko..
Halo-Halo de Iloko looks like a seemingly simple house at first glance but in fact it is (what? hahaha). I mean it houses one of La Union's best dishes.
After some photo-op outside the oversized logo of Halo-Halo de Iloko outside. We finally entered the restaurant. On the photo(From Left To Right): Pats, DJ, Don, Me, Fitz and Rina behind the Camera

Halohalo de Iloko
Magpasarap ka Muna
Once we entered the HaloHalo de Iloko, we were welcomed by a very warm, welcoming, and traditional dining environment. The tables and chairs were maid of bamboo which ate a large amount of space inside the narrow restaurant but that is what makes it unique. It feels like you are just eating at a friend's house. We found Qtube taping one of their episode in HaloHalo de Iloko with Jonel Uy. We browse the menu and decided that we should all just need to order one bulk order for the whole group to dig in. and that is what we did.
While waiting for our meal to be prepared, I decided to take another photo op. This is me, Chris A. inside HaloHalo de Iloko
After a while, the drinks and dishes got served and here they were:
"No more lonely rice"
Salad in bagoong dip anyone?
And of course what I have been looking and waiting for in Halohalo de Iloko,the Fiesta Halo-halo in HaloHalo de Iloko
A super-sized serving of Halo-Halo from HaloHalo de Iloko. It is not called "Fiesta Halo-Halo for nothing.
Yup, that is the actual size of the Fiesta Halo-Halo serving in Halo-Halo de Iloko. It has this unique taste which I haven't tasted before in the Halo-halos in the Metro or in our hometown. Probably it is because of the Ice Cream, Panutsa, and some secret ingredient.
I would like to thank Daryl, Fitz, Rina, Pats, and Don for the great time we had at HaloHalo de Iloko. Hope to dine and chat with them again anytime in the future.
