Everybody’s Café: All Time Favorite Authentic Kapampangan Food! #AwesomePampanga

As featured in PAMPANGA: Top 10 Most Awesome Restaurants in Pampanga! (2016)

Untitled

Everybody’s Café started as a neutral ground during liberation times in Philippine history. Anyone from Filipino, Japanese, and American could enjoy the café’s simple menu of Pancit Luglug (glass noodles with coconut milk sauce flavored with annatto and shrimp) or Mami (egg noodles with shredded meat and broth).

As the business grew, the first official branch opened in 1967 at San Fernando, Pampanga. Little by little they began adding Kapampangan specialties and treasured family recipes to the menu. A branch in Angeles City and one in Salcedo Village, Makati soon followed. After more than 50 years later, Everybody’s Café still stands as one of the most resilient and authentically Kapampangan establishments to date.

Here’s what to expect in the pride of Pampanga…

ZHENGZHOU: Dengfeng Shaolin Temple @TigerAirSG

Shaolin Temple

When you speak about China, one of the things that comes to mind is Kung Fu! Journey with us to Zhengzhou–the birthplace of Shaolin Kung Fu–as we get to know the cradle of Zen Buddhism and the ancient Chinese martial arts.

Dengfeng Shaolin Temple was once hidden thousands of years ago (459 AD) inside the dense jungle of the Songshan mountain. The reconstructed World Cultural & Natural Heritage site is now a destination where people come to visit the temple and where young students and tourists alike come to train in martial arts.

Here's what to expect inside the Shaolin capital…

CRIME OF THE CENTURY: Bomb Squad Mission! @MysteryManila @CenturyMall

Mystery Manila: Crime of the Century

Crime of The Century is one of the rooms in Mystery Manila where your team takes on the role of a bomb squad, tasked to locate and diffuse a ticking time bomb inside Century City Mall.
