If you want the BEST Bangus (Milkfish) in town drive up north to Pangasinan. A five hour road trip and at the same time, food trip. Pangasinan is known for its beaches and fine seafood cuisine. However, you can just go there and have a food trip then go to other nearby provinces such as Ilocos or Baguio

I was privileged to be there with our supervisor who is a local there. And, he knows where the best restaurants are. One is Silverio's at Dagupan. It is located along the national highway to La Union. They serve mostly, seafood and other Ilocano dishes. And of course, their freshly grilled Bangus is their specialty...I actually finished a whole! Even if it does not have any marination, the fish is so tasty!

Another restaurant where we ate was Jan-Mariquin at the town of Lingayen. They cook the so-called "one set" perfectly. I know you're wondering what that "one set" means. It's actually a soup with one whole goat...of course chopped goat meat plus the head (goat is like their pork or beef in their area) and it's good for 5-7 people. I know that goat stinks but I was amazed to taste it in their restaurant because the stinky smell was removed.

Lastly, Matutina. This is the more famous restaurant in Pangasinan. They have a branch in Urdaneta and also the original at Bonuan Tondaligan, Dagupan. Even the former president went there to eat. Of course, their specialty, boneless grilled Bangus. We also ordered the Kilawing Bangus and I think that's the best Kilawing Bangus I ever tasted!

As you can see, we had Bangus almost everyday and I love it because it's a guilt free food trip! No wonder why Bangus is our National just can't resist it!
