The food took a while to be served but I understand why. Each of the dish we ordered was GOOD!!! Our favorite is the Insarabasab. It went so well with the poque-poque. And for the finalé Kalti for dessert!

Had to try this place before we go. We ordered their pasta and tried their fondue dessert. All with Ilocano twist. The place is nice and cozy. Very relaxing and conducive for bonding. Thumbs up!

Will never be tired of eating here whenever I'm in Laoag. Been here twice. Must try are Insarabasab, Dinakdakan and their tea with wild basil (forgot the name). Two thumbs up! 😊

Nice place, and food is good. Servers should smile and be attentive more often. Salamagui juice is refreshing. Can't find something like that where i live so i think i am hoing back there 😁

May 2009 - Before heading to our Ilandia invasion, we made sure to do our research as to where we should eat and what places to visit aside from the usual ones. Back then, Saramsam Ylocano was said to have the best bagnet in Laoag! So, we didn't waste our chance to give it a try! Their Bagnet is heavenly!!!... More

Always reliable and consistent. Pretty good service and well-trained staff. Also, stayed at Balay da Blas (hotel of the restaurant) and quality was consistent all throughout.

We normally eat in other places in Laoag and this was our first time but what a nice discovery! Nice house, tasty decoration with local artifacts. Food is excellent. Try the puki puki pizza and the longaniza pizza! We also has the adobo and excellent chicken tingle type of soup . Highly recommended

You may not be familiar how to say im hungry lets eat in different Local dialects and in this case in ilocano but if youre hungry and you want to eat authentic ilocano food then saramsam is the place to eat. I loved their pinakbet and their beef stew did in local way. Yummy!
