Great things have small beginnings.

From a small food cart that sells Goto after the Simbang Gabi beside the St. William Cathedral in the City of San Fernando, La Union in 2005, to its first restaurant at the corner of Zandueta and P. Burgos Streets, to its present location along Zandueta St., Halo-Halo de Iloko has satisfied countless taste buds.

Tourism Icon

A visit to La Union won’t be complete without dropping by at Halo-Halo de Iloko. The most fun way to discover the province’s culture is through the stomach. The innovative foods created and served by the genius of its owner, Mr. Xavier Mercado, show the diversity and fusion of various cultures in La Union as a major melting pot in Luzon. Ever heard of Emparedados; Okoy Tikyosko; Sinampalukang Buknok at Bukngos; Seafood Pinakbet; Pancit Palabokano; and Ilocano Express? And of course, the icing of the cake, its famous Halo-Halo which has three unique servings – Buko Halo-Halo, Ginataang Halo-Halo and Ginataang Halo-Halo sa Buko.
