Experience the flavors of Pangasinan by trying out its sumptuous local cuisine. If you’re a foodie by heart and want to explore the province’s heritage through its famous delicacies, this culinary tour is just what you need and more.
Wait for your driver to pick you up at your accommodation in Pangasinan. Once settled, your guide will provide you a checklist of the different cuisines you'll be trying out during the tour, starting with the province’s specialty Bangus (milkfish). Being the home of some of the best milkfish dishes in the country, it is easy to spot a local restaurant serving these delicious fish. You may eat it with white rice and veggies to complete the meal.
Afterward, you will be trying out the kaleskesan, a dish made of innards. Its delectable distinct taste comes close to the sour soup called papaitan from Ilocos. Savor its hot stew before you proceed to try the Alaminos longganisa. This local delicacy is basically a sausage stuffed with fat and meat and has a distinctly reddish color. This is a common dish served during breakfast with eggs and a cup of coffee, but you can also eat it for lunch and dinner.
Pigar-pigar is another noteworthy dish you will be trying during your food trip in the province. This delicacy has stir-fried strips of beef and vegetables, most of which are cabbages. You can easily find this in food stalls and restaurants in Dagupan. From there, you will make your way to Je's Bagoong Factory, a local factory specialized in creating fermented fish sauce. Not only will you learn the history of the factory, but you'll also see firsthand how it's produced and manufactured.
The last delicacy you'll be trying on your list is putong Calasiao. These rice-based cakes come in various colors and flavors such as pandan, ube, or cheese. Make sure to bring some with you for your friends and loved ones.
