San Fernando, La Union: Midtown Food Plaza, Chinese Temple and Filipino-Chinese Pagoda

After our Kayak activity in San Juan, we headed to San Fernando, the capital of La Union to eat at a popular restaurant called "Midtown Food Plaza." The restaurant is a 10 minute walk from Partas Bus terminal. The food tasted "so good" that I was able to eat everything that I ordered.

Lechon Kawali 55 PHP (with rice)

Vegetable & Steak 75 PHP (with rice)

Leche Plan for dessert 30 PHP

We went to the market to find a local delicacy called "tupig." While we were searching, I decided to buy an ice cream. It actually tasted better compared to the one that they sell in Manila.

Pinoy-Style Sorbet 20 PHP

Then, we went to Ma-Cho Temple. It's a Chinese temple located near Partas Bus terminal in San Fernando. There was no "mass" when we get there. We walked around and enjoyed the view of South China Sea. We felt like we were in China.

Filipino-Chinese Pagoda is located near San Fernando City hall. It is constructed on top of a hill so it is recommended that you take a tricycle (40 PHP) when you visit the place. It was closed when we get there, but we decided to go over the fence to see the sunset. :-)

Welcome, everyone!

Taking pictures while JM and his relative were trying to figure out how to go over the fence.. haha!

The trip was all worth it.

Don't forget to visit these places when you go on a surf sesh in La Union! Ma-Cho Temple and Filipino-Chinese Pagoda have no entrance fee! =)
