The amount of things on our to-do list may leave us feeling overwhelmed that consequently, family time gets reduced. To foster communication and intimacy, you don't easily discount bonding with your fam—sharing meals at the dining table, included. The owners of La Famiglia Restaurant in San Fernando, La Union took this concern to heart in founding their resto two years ago.

“We are a huge family living under the same roof and we make sure to enjoy quality time at the dinner table. It's something you would rarely see in this generation. Almost everyone’s too busy,” observes general manager Charlo Vergara. “We believe that food will always be better when we eat together and we wanted to relive this old tradition with everyone else so our family, as its foundation, embarked on this venture.”

What started out as a humble food place with only four tables, 20 sets of dining ware, and a small selection of dishes later grew to 15 tables that can accommodate over 10 families. La Famiglia has since expanded its menu to include crispy pork adobo, chili prawns, octopus sisig, bagnet pinakbet, and more best-sellers (swipe through our gallery for more!). All this gives more room to the now-thriving tourism in LU!
