Pooh’s Rumbly Tummy: Surf Shack

Surf-Shack

Every Christmas season, Pooh has 3 main goals:

1. Eat

2. Sleep

3. Eat

And being a hardworking bear of little brain, Pooh made to sure to achieve all three.

Last December 25, Pooh was able to try out this fairly new restaurant – Surf Shack San Juan, La Union. What’s the best thing about this place? They have at least 4 types of fusion pizzas you can try out! Here are the 4 that Pooh was able to try out:

Pizza 1: Mommy Lu’s Gourmet Tuyo Pizza

This is Pooh’s favorite pizza. Once this thin crust pizza was served at the table, the waiter poured a glass of hunny over the pizza! The combination of tuyo and hunny might seem a bit off for some people but Pooh thinks this is the perfect combination – salty and sweet at the same time 😛

Pizza 2: Bacnotan Longganisa Pizza

Pizza 4: Vigan Longganisa Pizza

Trying out these not-so-common kinds of pizza, it is best partnered with one of their cocktail drinks.

Barcino: Paella = Love

Barcino
Must try!

As a child, Paella was a regular meal on Pooh’s house. So every time, Pooh orders Paella on restaurants, there’s already a high standard to be met. And as it’s not a regular meal to be placed on a menu, it’s been a while since Pooh had tasted a decent Paella meal.

Luckily, Pooh discovered Barcino after being invited by a friend from outside the Hundred Acre Wood.

And the verdict after trying it out? Pooh definitely recommends this restaurant. Go with your friends as it is a very chill place for a dinner with a few drinks on the side. 🙂

Pooh’s Tummy Recommendations:
Paella De Marisco (Seafood Paella) with a glass of Sangria. Their Espaguetis A La Marinera (Seafood Spaghetti) is also a must try!
