Join this food trip tour and get a taste of the best culinary offerings of Iloilo that locals and tourists alike keep coming back to for more. 

Your Iloilo culinary adventure starts when your local tour guide picks you up at your hotel in Iloilo City. You will then be taken to the La Paz Public Market, home of the famous Netong’s La Paz Batchoy. It's a humble restaurant but don't let appearances fool you, this place has got a long history of cooking up the tastiest batchoy in Iloilo. Slurp on that bowl of piping hot rich broth made by hours of slow cooking marrow-rich bones. A filling bowl of authentic La Paz Batchoy includes fresh egg noodles called miki, pig innards, mixed with local ginamos or shrimp paste, and topped generously with fried garlic, crushed chicharon (pork cracklings), and egg. 

Your next stop is also located in La Paz Public Market, just a few step’s away from Netong’s, the also famous Madge Café, where you can get your morning dose of freshly brewed coffee. They source their coffee beans from the northern parts of Guimaras, a nearby island province from Iloilo.  Afterward, you will go to De Ocampo’s to have your own freshly made barquillos, another famous Iloilo snack. 

After that, you'll make your way to try out the humongous steamed buns of Roberto’s Siopao. This siopao is the perfect pasalubong for your loved ones, or for a heavier snack for yourself when in Iloilo. Unlike other siopaos, their version has unusual ingredients to complement their rich asado and bola bola filling.  They offer a variety of siopao from the regular pork adobo with egg to the King and Queen siopao which contains bacon, Chinese sausage, and chicken-pork adobo with egg.

If you're still hungry, lunch will be served at either Breakthrough or Tatoy’s depending on your choice. These are the well-loved family restaurants of locals in Iloilo. Next, you will have a quick sightseeing at Casa Mariquit and Jaro Church

Better leave more space in your stomach because your next destination is at the district of Molo to taste the popular pancit molo at Kap Ising’s Pancit molo is a local wonton soup dish made with pork and shrimp-filled wontons, a rich chicken broth, topped with fried garlic. Next you'll be taken to the Molo Mansion Café that serves dessert made of fresh coconut, dragon fruit, and a flower called Blue Ternate Ice Cream.

The tour will end with a pasalubong or souvenir buying spree at the Original Biscocho Haus. You can’t leave Iloilo without bringing some of these toasted bread crackers with butter and sugar.
