We went through their menu list though I am quite sure I want to taste the original Bagnet from the place itself where the recipe originated. Going through it are some Spanish, Italian, and Indian cuisine. And the pizzas – the peculiarly flavored Pizzas! choices like Pinakbet Pizza, Dinuguan Pizza excites us and some that I forgot – we got the second one.
Here is our yummy Bagnet, side with tomato and alamang. (Errggg see I want one now at my desk).
For some reason I craved for Dinuguan (I am a big fan of Dinuguaan) and we ordered Crispy dinuguan – this one I can say is something I would want to change in replace for something else on the menu. I can’t seem to taste much of flavor and they said its “Crispy dinuguan” but the meat is gummy.
And the highlight is the Dinuguan Pizza; this fusion takes local cuisine to the next level of cooking. I love the pizza, the crust was thin and crispy and the flavor is just enough – I love that they put fresh green New Mexico cayenne pepper instead of depending on the cooked once included in the dinuguan – the way I first visualized it, because those tiny slices of cayenne pepper really added a value to its good taste.
Here are some photos of Herencia’s interior. I personally love antique sewing machine made used as tables and the Moroccan liked chandeliers.
The service was good and we enjoyed dining here. Kudos to their Juice coz its 20% purer than those juice of the same price in manila. ;)
Herencia Café: Herencia literally means Heritage, one among the few restaurant in Ilocos who remained faithful to classical Ilocano cuisine and bringing those dishes to an entirely new level in culinary excelence. (http://paoay.blogspot.com/2007/08/herencia-cafe-of-paoay.html)
