I’ve always wanted to explore Pampanga but my search for a culinary tour always ended in a disappointment. So the next best thing, is to do your own tour of Pampanga with a foodie person who knows the best authentic and original foodie places in Pampanga. Thanks to Spanx who will be the official culinary tour guide of Pampanga! Here is a draft itinerary and feel free to add any inputs/ suggestions:

  • leave manila at 8am or meet at 9.30am in Shell NLEX
  • brunch at VFW in Clark
  • drop by Antoinette’s AFC (Angeles Fried Chicken) for take out
  • pass by “Crunchy Sisig” at the secret pulutan joint
  • Halo Halo stop at Razon’s
  • Mely’s Sisig for early dinner
  • Main Store of Pampanga’s Best
  • arrive manila at 9pm estimate

By the way this is the first time I will be meeting Spanx in person. I’m also excited to meet Ajay in person with her foodie friends who will be joining us too. I’m inviting all foodie people out there to join us. If you have a whole saturday afternoon to spare, and you want to pig out with us, let me know. We are estimating that all the food could costs P1,000-P1,500 including take home and pasalubong. Of course, this is a KKB culinary tour so pay as you order depending on what you want so you could manage your budget. Transportation will also be up to you so better bring a group of friends too and we will have a culinary tour convoy.

Lastly, maybe some of you would also have suggestions on places to visit in Pampanga. I’m particularly interested on foodie places and photogenic places that we can pass by in between the food stops. Please leave your suggestions in the comments. By the way, this is a food trip purely for the fun of it so expect that there will be awesome moments as well as misadventures 🙂

Cabalen Food Trip: August 12, 2006, Saturday. Mark this date! Join us and I’m sure it would be fun to meet other foodie people out there. If you are joining let me know your name and how many are you in your group. Please also send me your mobile phone for proper coordination before and during the meet.


PS Angel julie — you might want to join us so that we can finally meet.
