The Pinares Pagkaing Pinoy is an all-Filipino restaurant that is operated by the hotel. The advantage of being run by a hotel is the emphasis on customer service. I had a slight problem with how my order was cooked and the manager apologized repeatedly and corrected the issue immediately. He even gave us a free dessert, courtesy of the Chef as a gesture of an apology.

Food was great! Even with the low price, the serving size exceeded my expectations. This would be our regular place from now on whenever we’re in the City Hall or the Court House area.
We were there during their dry run but their opening will be on August 2, 2018 and they will be open from 7 AM to 9 PM.

Rocco’s Korean Grill

New Korean restaurant in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan.

Rocco’s Korean Grill

The only Korean restaurant in the city! It’s been a while since we have eaten Kalbi and Bulgogi. Although they didn’t have them, their pork ribs were close enough. Their main dishes, which you can choose from three choices, come with the typical Korean side dishes. By the way the noodles are so good, you’ll keep on asking for more. They offer an unlimited or all-you-can-eat serving but they’ll charge you extra for leftovers. You cook your own food on a stove-top griddle that is on every table which is great so you can control the tenderness of the meat and its fat content.

Main dish comes with side dishes.

The price is P299 and up depending on your order. And each comes with a pitcher of ice cold tea. So if you have been craving for some good Korean dish, stop by at 125 Mac Arthur Highway, Nancayasan, Urdaneta, Pangasinan. They are open from 11 AM to 8 PM.

We found this newly opened restaurant in Nancayasan along MacArthur National Highway across the Petron gas station. Their Basil Pesto Pollo was very good – the pasta was prepared just right. The Honey Lemon Chicken comes with a fresh lettuce salad with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Try their zesty dalandan juice to complement each meal.  The basil leaves added to it gives it a nice minty taste. They are open from 10 AM to 10 PM with a break between 2 PM and 4 PM.
