To have a chill and lazy session by the beach is pure heaven, especially if work drains you out. That is what I exactly did last weekend along with my best friend and her boyfriend.
We all know the journey to La Union is a long one – 4 to 5 hrs by car and a much longer one by bus. Since it was our 2nd time in La Union, we decided to eat in places we would love to go back to and of course, try out different restaurants we were not able to go to last time.

First off is Tagpuan sa San Juan!

Tagpuan is a good place to eat especially when you are on a budget. Other restaurants in the area would usually price their food around 200-300php. In Tagpuan, you can expect meals to be priced around 90php and above. Please take note that it’s tricky to find this restaurant.

Since we were hungry and tired from the journey, we decided to go back to this restaurant. My best friend and her boyfriend were supposed to try out the Tapa (95php) since this is one of their best sellers. Instead, the 3 of us decided to just go for the Bagnet (120php) again.

La Union serves great bagnet and that is something one should not miss. What I love about Tagpuan’s bagnet is how juicy and crunchy it is. It goes well along with tomato salsa on the side. Although I love this meal, I still found it to be expensive because of its servings. This meal had more rice than bagnet.

I would DEFINITELY go back to this restaurant to try out their Tapa and have more of BAGNET BAGNET BAGNET!!

Wanna have fun with party feels, strong waves and millennial vibes in La Union but have tight budget? Don’t worry, TAGPUAN is your life saver.Most of the restos in La Union are quite pricey. Normal menus usually offers tacos, shawarma, grill foods and some unique foods that you can only try in Elyu. But this small resto in Elyu offers a very affordable yet delicious food. We accidentally eat here with my friends last September when we don’t have cash anymore since we forgot to withdraw on available ATMs in San Fernando. Yes, there are only few ATM machines in La Union and most of them are in San Fernando so you need to travel via tricycle from Urbiztondo or San Juan to San Fernando that might cost you P100-P150 pesos.

TAGPUAN kinda tricky to find, when me and my friends are looking for affordable resto to eat out, we cannot find normal meal that costs around P100-P150, normal meals usually range from P200-P300. Tired of checking and walking around, we decided to take a rest for a while in the Monkey Grill and resto just beside the highway and I noticed that there are some people who enters this small street and I wondered why, checking on what’s inside, I saw TAGPUAN with so many people lining up to have their Hangover meals or dinner just like us. The place is small, only one small window (for the counter) and 5-10 sets of chairs and tables outside but the interior looks cozy and quite senti.

Thought the price is cheap, the taste of their food is so rich! For the dinner, me and my friends tried Tokwa’t baboy, Pork Adobo and Pares.

This resto is really a life saver or should I say “dinner saver” that night.

Here is their affordable yet delicious menu:

I was supposed to order for Bagnet but it's not available that time so I go for Tapa and it was the best decision I ever made. Lol! Sobrang saraaaaap!! I could've ordered for 2 meals.

Ansarap lang men!
Got the bagnet meal. Ang sarap men!
And we also got tokwa't baboy. Ang sarap men!
Like, the meal was so like mura, it's like I just cannot men!
Lol. Masarap nga sya and affordable. Medyo tago lang talaga sya pero nasa highway naman. Need mo i-waze at bumaba para mahanap sya. Ang problem lang dito is medyo maliit lang area nila. Mas ok ata na for takeout. Or if may kasama kang kakain sa likod na store (Mad Monkeys) mas ok na dun kayo kumain. Ipaalam mo lang kila ate. Also, do not forget to return the utensils and plates ha.

One of the restaurants that I definitely enjoyed was this place, Tagpuan.

It's just so cute because it's alongside of the road and it was very tricky to find. Tricky because I didn't see where to order right away.

The bagnet of course didn't disappoint. The beef mami is also great. Perfect for some drunk girls like us. If you're going to notice, they really put an effort to the presentation of their dishes and at a very reasonable price! I'm definitely going back!

By the way, the open late in the afternoon until 2am to satisfy your late night cravings.

A really good place to eat especially when you're on a budget. Meals are yummy, priced at a very reasonable price, and serving size is just right to satisfy one hungry person. 128512

Right after our Tangadan Adventure, before checking in at Flotsam, we had lunch here first. We had the following:

BEEF PARES (90)
Super tasty and yummy, we actually liked it. It's a little different than the usual pares because it's a bit more saucy (it's like the braised beef rice bowl from Chowking). I liked this because the sauce wasn't too much, not too salty as well and the beef was tender.

BAGNET (120)
Mas paranf lechon kawali because the skin wasn't as crispy/crunchy. Actually, the pork wasn't that crunchy at all but the taste was still pretty okay. Served with tomato salsa on the side.

TAPA (95)
This was good, too. Crispy thin tapa with a runny sunny side up egg and rice. 128155 Perfect breakfast or hangover meal! 128521

(Check last photo for the menu! 128521)

Majority of the establishments here are practicing CLAYGO (clean as you go) so make sure to return your used plates and utensils after. Don't be a ___. 128540

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 128077🏼

Never miss out this place when you visit Urbiztondo.
I repeat.
Never. Miss. Out. 128514

Perfect for those lasing nights and all you want is good lutong bahay food to ease up that alcohol inside you. It's good. It's cheap. It's home cooked. Panalo mga bes. Haha. But srsly, the pares and tokwa combo plus chili is the real deal. 128170🏻

This simple hole in the wall restaurant is a great find in San Juan, La union. The food is unassuming, cheap and straight to the point. This is my new go-to restaurant after surfing.

I super love their Goto and Tokwa’t Baboy 128522128536128525128536!

They serve awesome pares and bagnet, plus the price is super affordable. The best here is that they open til late so you can eat here after some wild and busy drinking night.

An endearing concept for a food joint that serves cheap and good food! Ranges from php50-200.

Pictured is the braised beef pares. Soft and tender, chewy and tasty! They also serve beef mami and their best seller is the pork bagnet rice.

Will be patronizing this for tipid hits when in San Juan.
