Pooh’s Rumbly Tummy: 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 3: Beef Tapa 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.


Surf Shack San Juan, La Union can be found on 239 National Highway, Urbiztondo, 2514 San Juan, La Union. You may visit their official fanpage here.

Barcino: Paella = Love

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!

Pooh’s Tummy Rating:
Food: 4.5/5
Service: 4/5
Value: 4/5
Atmosphere 4/5
Overall: 4.5/5

Pooh’s Sangria (not for the light drinkers)
Love at first taste
