PAMPANGA, WE ARE COMING TO EAT YOU!
Metro Angeles Food Tour 2014
I am joining the first ever Metro Angeles Food Tour (MAFT). MAFT is organized by Pinoy Travel bloggers, headed by Ramil delos Reyes of Pinas Muna. The tour will run from July 5 – 8, 2014 around the Metro Angeles area in Pampanga.
This will be my first food tour as a participant. I’ve been part of the famed Davao Food Appreciation Tour for 6 years, but I’ve always been an organizer. I’ve also joined the Mindanao Food Appreciation Tour: Soccsksargen Summer Safari as a co-organizer. I’ve also joined the Soccsksargen Experience (SEx) Tour countless times but that event is equal parts eating and adventure. This time, I will be focused on eating, eating, eating… and it’s going to be in Pampanga. Specifically, in Metro Angeles.
Everybody knows Pampanga has a proud tradition of unique Filipino cooking. They combine local, Malay, Spanish, American, and Chinese influences, techniques, and ingredients to produce a distinct Kapampangan taste. Pampanga has a reputation for being a must-try food destination in the Philippines. Some of the most popular Kapampangan dishes are sisig (grilled pig’s head and liver serving on a sizzling plate), tocino (cured pork), Pampanga Longganisa (pork sausage), and buro (fermented dishes).
The Metro Angeles Food Tour 2014 will be highlighting the best traditional and modern dishes in some of the most popular food establishments in Angeles, Pampanga:
I’ve read some reviews and articles about the places we’re visiting and I can’t contain my excitement. I’m looking forward to lots of eating and lots of fun.
