Ilocos Islands Philippines

Ilocos Norte is best known as the home province of former president Ferdinand Marcos. The province has many old Spanish Churches, the best known being St. William's Cathedral in the capital city, Laoag. There are a number of popular beaches in the province, including Currimao, La Paz, Seksi Beach, Pagudpud, the Saud Beach, and the Fort Ilocandia beach.

In the Northern Philippines is a province where the country’s rich Spanish colonial and American colonial and revolutionary past co-exist to the day. Here, a centuries-old World Heritage church and forts symbolic of Spanish rule have stayed alive together with Western Occupation period pieces marred with revolts led by native nationalists and instigators of independence. The place is Ilocos Norte, a rugged land of a unique people who have kept history and beauty preserved.

Philippines Cuisine History and Influences

During the pre-Hispanic era in the Philippines, the preferred Austronesian methods for food preparation were boiling, steaming and roasting. The ingredients for common dishes were obtained from locally raised livestock. These ranged from kalabaw (water buffaloes), baka (cows), manok (chickens) and baboy (pigs) to various kinds of fish and seafood. More details at Philippines Cuisine History and Influences

Main Dishes Philippine Cuisine

Adobo is one of the most popular Filipino dishes and is considered unofficially by many as the national dish. It usually consists of pork or chicken, sometimes both, stewed or braised in a sauce usually made from vinegar, cooking oil, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, and soy sauce. It can also be prepared "dry" by cooking out the liquid and concentrating the flavor. Bistek, also known as "Filipino beef steak," consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce and calamansi and then fried in a skillet that is typically served with onions.
