Abé’s Farm is named after writer, artist, and food lover Emilio Aguilar Cruz. “Abé,” the Capampangan term for “friend,” is Cruz’s nickname. Abé’s Farm is owned and managed by the LJC Restaurant Group, founded by Emilio Cruz’s son, Larry J. Cruz.
Abé’s Farm takes pride in serving a full menu of Capampangan food and other signature dishes from the LJC Restaurant Group, specializing in Filipino dishes. From appetizers to desserts, Abé’s Farm pleases the palate and satisfies the tummy.
Taking centerstage are unique and exotic Capampangan dishes such as the Betute and Arobung Kamaru (Farm Crickets). Betute is friend farm frogs stuffed with spiced ground pork. It is a good exotic dish to try for those who might feel iffy about trying locusts.
The Betute by Abé’s Farm is perfectly spiced and properly cooked. If you didn’t know it was farm frogs, you wouldn’t have guessed that it is made with exotic meat. The savory taste of the Betute is sure to whet your appetite for more Capampangan dishes.
