Ilocos Norte's Saramsam Restaurant for Bagnet

Bagnet with KBL (kamatis, bagoong, lasona). Bagnet is a staple in Ilocano cuisine, so be sure to sample it when traveling north of the country. These are pork chunks that are boiled, air-dried, and deep-fried. 

Bagnet appears to me as hefty chicharon, and I prefer it, along with my lechon, with fermented fish sauce, tomatoes, and native onions, as pictured above. Lasona is a potent onion variant. It is a favorite of my grandfather, and when he was alive he'd usually have it as relish, or the main dish.
