Ilocos Sur: Vigan Empanadahan

Located at Jacinto Street on the western side of Plaza Burgos in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur, Vigan Empanadahan is the collective name of the open-air stalls which sells various street foods particularly the famed Vigan empanada.

Due to its close proximity to Vigan Cathedral and Calle Crisologo, the stalls here are usually jam-packed particularly  during weekends. This place is also quite busy at night especially after the "Dancing Fountain" presentation at Plaza Salcedo.
Something worth noting

This is how they do it...
Nom nom nom

Regardless of how busy Vigan Empanadahan gets during lunch and dinner time it is still best to visit and try out the food there as it ensures the freshness of the food served. Speaking of food, aside from the Vigan empanadas, other streets foods available in Vigan Empanadahan are; okoy, barbecue (of different variants), arroz caldo, sinanglao, and mami.

I got to visit Vigan Empanadahan after our failed attempt to watch Plaza Salcedo's Dancing fountains last December and just like what I have said, the place was jam-packed with local and foreign diners. It took us almost an hour to get our order. Regarding my Vigan empanada experience, it will come out in a separate food trip article as it might make this article into a novel.

Overall, Vigan Empanadahan is a perfect place to dine if you're on a tight budget or if you want to experience the culinary treat of the city. Make sure to leave your primadona friends behind as this place could get quite noisy.

Getting there:

From Cubao, ride a bus heading to Vigan City. Once there, ride a tricycle that will bring you directly to Vigan Empanadahan.
