Thinking where to dine during your Elyu Trip? Check out this happy food finds all within San Juan.

A trip wouldn’t be complete without trying out the most sought resto places. Dining with your friends or travel buddies, and good thing that Elyu has so many food selections to choose from. So you and your buddies would never run out of choices depending on your cravings. All of this places were also very convenient to reach as you may just walk around or ride a tricycle for P10 per pax rate.

Here’s some of the resto I tried when I visited La Union, sharing my great finds food choices and resto ambiance that could be for you too!


We opted to dine here for a sumptuous lunch after our 6 hours bus ride, who wouldn’t want to eat something so good after a long ride right? With its super refreshing ambiance a nice view to look at as you dine, food was awesome with selections and affordable food perfect for group meals.

What we ordered was a pan of pizza, pasta and buffalo wings. All were good but we wish to have tried other offerings as well. This is also great for group of people rather than dining alone so you get to save and try more.

We actually spend the entire afternoon here after check-out while waiting for our bus bound to Manila. They got free wi-fi and the place really felt like home.



Different coffee choices, El Union is one of the favorite place as well here in Elyu. Laidback ambiance for a chillin’ day with your cold or hot coffee with you. Always check out the best-sellers of each resto and decide from there.

But I tell you to try its “Grilled Cheese” !!!! coz it tastes heaven :p *hahahaha!! it literally taste so so good! And I was literally wishing to get back to Elyu to order one again!

  • As a whole, La Union has so many many food restaurants to look out for, I still have so many on my wish list but max that you eat thrice a day right? (*haha!) will be back for more discovery
  • Price range of food usually starts at P180 – above, should you wish to try each of the famous resto in Elyu be ready to shell out on this as well
  • all of the resto were my favorite, each has something to offer uniquely and something that would remain remarkable to you
  • be it the ambiance of the resto, the vibe of the people, the menu and offering and the budget one has to shell out

La Union, what I consider one of my favorite place would always be significant to me. Should you wish to read my 3D/2N DIY Itinerary you may also read : La Union Itinerary for 3D/2N – What to do? Where to go?
