Someone said that the empanada from Ilocos Norte (Batac and Laoag) have thicker crusts while the one from Ilocos Sur (Vigan) is thinner. Filling wise, they're the same. Remember an authentic empanada uses green unripe papaya and not cabbage!
Take a Tour of Ilocos Sur & Ilocos Norte in the north west of the Philippines, and explore the famous historic Spanish town of Vigan, Laoag, Paoay Church, and maybe relax on the beautiful beaches of Pagudpud. Book a vacation with Philippine Trails.
