[VIGAN] ▬ THE CEILING IS DESIGNED WITH CAPIZ-MADE VIGAN WINDOWS AND A CALESA CARTWHEEL.
[VIGAN] ▬ ENTRANCE TO THE RESTAURANT
Hidden Garden features the terracotta industry of Vigan. It is originally a landscaping business that has turned into a tourist destination. Lilong and Lilang Restaurant is another addition to the whole package.
[VIGAN] ▬ INSIDE THE RESTAURANT
[VIGAN] ▬ DAMILI PRODUCTS FROM WALKWAY TO ORNAMENTATION
The entrance of the restaurant is a fine example of a damili-producing household. Many households in Bulala actually have this set-up. They display their products somewhere around their houses both for business and aesthetic purposes. Lilong and Lilang restaurant really represents the community where it belongs.
[VIGAN] ▬ BUDDHA BUSTS AND SCULPTURE ARE ALSO HERE HOWEVER, MIXING WITH ILOCANO STUFF.
[VIGAN] ▬ CAPIZ WINDOWS AND DADAPILAN ARE DISPLAYED HERE, TRULY ILOCANO.
[VIGAN] ▬ RECEPTION AREA.
[VIGAN] ▬ THE WET LEAVES AND BUST/SCULPTURE REFLECT THE LIGHT, THUS SHINING.
[VIGAN] ▬ WHERE RAINFALL HAS THE DRAMA
This restaurant + café claims itself as a place to discover native Ilocano food. I've been here a lot of times. Too bad, I always fail to take a photo of some of the Ilocano dishes I've tried here. But of course, if you do not like Ilocano cuisines which I doubt, you have other options. The following photos are the food I managed to dig from my files.
[VIGAN] ▬ DRAGON FRUIT IS PLENTY IN ILOCOS.
[VIGAN] ▬ EMPANADA DISSECTED.
[VIGAN] ▬ EMPANADA WITH ATSARA.
[VIGAN] ▬ JOINING THE EMPANADA ARE THESE COOLERS.
[VIGAN] ▬ AVOCADO SHAKE
[VIGAN] ▬ THEIR VERSION OF HALO-HALO
Inset: I don't want to destroy the image of Vigan but it is no longer new anymore that Vigan's tricycle drivers are infamous for overcharging. I encourage every tourist not to choose a tricycle driver charging more than what you should pay. Sometimes, we should teach these tricycle drivers who violate the law a lesson. Choose tricycle drivers who follow the city ordinance and support them so that they will continue to become tourist-friendly, thus, reducing the notoriety of Vigan trikemen. Ignore the discourteous and overcharging drivers.
This restaurant is open from 6 AM to 7 PM. Contact them at (077) 722-1450. ▬ end.
