Sumary of Culinary journey in the country’s food capital:
- Don’t ever miss the quintessential sisig, the signature sizzling delicacy of minced grilled pork’s cheeks, ears and snout which the late food celebrity Anthony Bourdain flew here to taste.
- Food trippers and culture vultures would brave driving through the congested town of Mexico if only to taste the fabled cooking of octogenarian Lillian Borromeo in her centenarian ancestral house.
- Armando’s Pizza of Camalig Restaurant Countless prominent celebrities and political personalities have feasted at this humble kitchen, most notably former President and House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who has organized a culinary tourism program for food trippers.
- Deep in the heart of Angeles City’s old poblacion is Historic Camalig Restaurant, a reincarnation of a circa 1840 Antillan storehouse, and a mainstay in the local food landscape.
- Camalig is a veritable showroom of antiques from a bygone era—old furniture, classic electric fans, dining sets, vintage beverage bottles, household implements and what-have-yous taken from a treasure chest of history.
- Pampango dishes at Apag Marangle To reach out to a more diverse crowd, it opened a stall at the Comercio Central’s Mangan Tamu, a weekend open-air food colony at the Clark Parade Grounds.
