This La Union Staple Brings Some Beach Vibes to Poblacion
The only thing you can't do here is surf.
(SPOT.ph) As much as we love being in the city—we use the word "love" loosely, but the Metro has her moments—some of us just can't help but long for the feeling of sand beneath our feet and the sounds of the ocean in our ears. La Union in particular has been quite the hotspot to catch a wave or three, but the dining and drinking scene there has taken on a life of its own. So much so, we'd argue, that some establishments are dipping their toes into the Poblacion pool: Enter Eksena sa Tagpuan.
While it's not necessarily food you'd associate with the beach, the menu nevertheless speaks to the part of you that's proudly Pinoy, while simply being some satisfying comfort food. As for us, we're excited for those classic bowls of Pares and Bagnet. And get ready to get loose—the rule here is, "Inuman lang, walang inglisan."
Eksena sa Tagpuan is at 5966 Fermina Street, Poblacion. For more information, visit Eksena sa Tagpuan's Instagram.
