Balai Ilocos: Na B.I. na ako!

With numerous restaurants thriving inside BF Homes, Paranaque City, having a newly-opened Ilocano-specialty restaurant is a breath of fresh air. Just this March, Balai Ilocos opened along Aguirre Avenue.

As its name suggests, Balai Ilocos serves authentic Ilocano dishes. The place is quite small and exudes a homey ambiance. Plus, the owners and staff are really friendly.

To taste the best of Ilocos, my friend and I tried the Balai Ilocos Platter. It is a medley of igado, longganisa and bagnet. It is served with each dish’ corresponding sidings or sauce.

All the three dishes are flavorful but I loved the longganisa best! I remember the owner telling us that it is a family original recipe (home-made from Ilocos). Honorable mention goes to the bagnet.

Of course, we also tried the pakbet to compliment the meat dishes. The servings are priced just right.

There are a plenty of other interesting dishes on the menu that we wanted to try--definitely we will come back!
