Flavors of Ilocos: Infinite Possibilities to Start Your Day Hotel Luna

The start of a new day represents infinite possibilities. And at Hotel Luna, it all begins with breakfast...

Waffles and bacon. Vigan longanisa and fried rice. Beef tapa and pork tocino. Corned beef. Dried fish. Limitless combinations make for interesting mornings. And you can try something different every morning during your stay at Hotel Luna.

Hotel Luna's Comedor is up and running as early as 6am, with an impressive breakfast buffet spread offering a diversity of options, from local regional flavors to continental favorites. A live cooking station (R) prepares eggs any way you want it, so pick up a plate and start your breakfast...

A freshly prepared omelet filled with mushrooms, onions, and green peppers starts your morning, along with crisp bacon and piece of toast. Ever since my very first visit to Vigan, breakfast was always special at Hotel Luna (see my previous post here at There's just something about early mornings at Hotel Luna, the quiet calm punctuated by the occasional rhythmic clatter of a lone calesa on cobblestone, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.

If you're staying for a couple of days at Hotel Luna, make it a point to try something different every morning. Like some waffles topped with butter and generously drizzled with maple syrup, paired with bacon and a sunny side-up. And your morning is off to another great start.

Or go with local flavors with a plate loaded with tender beef tapa, a sunny side-up and fried rice with a side of sauteed bitter melon, tomatoes and egg, guaranteed to provide all the energy you need for another exploratory walk along the historic Calle Crisologo, located conveniently beside Hotel Luna (for more on Calle Crisologo, check out my previous post here at

Why not go all-out with Vigan longanisa, beef tapa, pork tocino, and corned beef paired with a sunny side-up and fried rice for even more local flavors. Or simply ask Melvin and his courteous staff what's new at the buffet selection.

Other local flavors are featured on the buffet spread, including danggit (local dried fish), best with sukang iloko and some tomatoes and salted egg. Hotel Luna has something for everyone, and breakfasts are just one of the highlights during your stay (for more on the elegant Hotel Luna, check out my previous post here at and its impressive art collection here at

Or get creative with a waffle tower layered with crispy bacon and topped with Vigan longanisa...
