Tatak Kapampangan: 5 restaurants to check out if you’re looking for the REAL taste of kapampangan cuisine

Don’t you miss the essence of travelling? Like experiencing thrilling activities for the first time and eating local food that’s way out of your comfort zone? The last time I went to another city, I ate wood worms. Oh, how I miss those days. 

One thing I look forward to when travelling is of course, eating the local food. Growing up in Angeles City, I’ve always wondered what people look forward to eating when they visit our city because to me, everything was “normal”. Tinolang/Pritung tugak was normal, Bulanglang was normal, plus, I could access amazing sisig in my radius anytime. I think about the people who planned to experience tasting authentic Kapampangan Food for the first time this year. Is our quaint little city still in your travel planner? I hope it still is, because we have some good news for you! 

As soon as the IATF for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases allows full operation of the tourism industry in most cities, the Mayor of Angeles City’s plans on boosting the city and Pampanga’s food industry through gastro-tourism. Of course, safety and sanitation protocols will be implemented.

Kapampangan cuisine has a rich historical background rooted from Spanish cuisine. Add the Kapampangan’s creativity and versatility and you’ve got one of the most delectable cuisines in the Philippines. It’s no wonder why we’re labelled as the Culinary Capital of the Philippines. If Angeles City and our neighboring cities are part of your food trip destinations, be sure to check out these restaurants to taste authentic kapampangan cuisine: (Minus kapampangan lolas and titas. There are TOO MANY to mention)

Along with other kakanins, Susie’s Cuisine’s Tibok-Tibok is a silky,creamy dessert that’s similar to Maja Blanca, but as a kapampangan, of course this is better.
