Churches that survived lahar.

It was not just about food but also of hearing how the Pampangenos survived the wrath of Mt Pinatubo. What better way to see than to visit age-old churches that until now are being well-kept by the people. Picture below shows the top portion of the window that is now just by the floor. The lahar went as far up as the ceiling so the churches have to be rebuilt.

Happy Tummies: Sweets

We started this culinary trip by visiting bakeries that produced famous biscuits and delicacies from Pampanga. Many of these bakeries and sweet shops are owned and run by families who inherited these recipes from their forebearers making the recipes unique. A family affair, these shops are found mostly on the first floor of the owner's houses.

Happy Tummies: Turones de Kasuy

Here, the Ocampo Lansang clan running this shop inside their house. We were shown how the turones are cooked, cooled and then packed.

Happy Tummies: Crepe Meets Suman

It is a shame that i don't recall the name of this delicious native food. A marriage between crepe and suman produced this super filling food.

Happy Tummies : Fat and Jolly

Oh well, a little of these charming cracklings is not too sinful. Just hit the gym after!

Happy Tummies: San Nicolas Biscuit

There is a story behind the San Nicolas biscuit of Pampanga. Here, the biscuits are molded from carved wood before baking. This bakery/shop is located in a very old house adding to the charm of the biscuit.

Happy Tummies: Everybody's Cafe

With menu listings such as horse meat, crickets and frogs I knew what was coming next. Of course I needed to taste these things only to silence the curious cat inside. The fried frog's not bad. It tastes like chicken actually. It was just so brutal serving the frog that way... The cricket....I wouldn't eat it again. The horse meat...just right.

Happy Tummies: See to it You Eat Sisig

A Pampanga Culinary Trip is not complete without having a fill of the famous sisig where it traces its humble roots - Aling Lucing's. Be ready to skip that diet cos it's all worth it!
