"...no modern restaurant in Dagupan could ever take the place of these local food in the hearts of Dagupeños and visitors like me."
[DAGUPAN, PANGASINAN PROVINCE, ILOCOS REGION, LUZON ISLAND, PHILIPPINES] ► Bangus (milkfish) has somehow become synonymous with Dagupan. However, the city of Dagupan is more than the bangus recipes and the expanding presence of fusion dishes and contemporary food innovations that can be found in its ever growing inventory of restaurants and cafes.
As far as I'm concerned, I think they were gone for a while. On my last visit, I found out that the local vendors stationed at the corner of Burgos Street and AB Fernandez Avenue near the Dagupan City Plaza are back!
Tupig and Local Bibingka
Tupig is made of ground glutinous rice and coconut strips (or grated coconut in some cases) wrapped with banana leaves.
