PAMPANGA is widely revered as The Culinary Capital of the Philippines. Highly acclaimed Kapampangan Chef, Claude Tayag of BALE DUTUNG and 1956 DOWNTOWN CAFÉ, believes the province’s reputation for good food is because of its history with Clark Air Base (a military facility for American and Filipino forces from 1903 to 1991).
Due to the base’s proximity from the capital city, Angeles, international goods and other ingredients became easily accessible. Thus, locals assimilated these ingredients to their cuisine and signature Kapampampangan dishes like Sisig were born.
In collaboration with the Angeles City Tourism, Team OAP traveled to Pampanga in search of the best restaurants.
