Let’s Eat - - CONTENTS -

Welcome to the very first out-of-town spe­cial of Let’s Eat! It took al­most five years, but we’ve fi­nally found our way to the province that’s re­garded as one of the culi­nary cap­i­tals of the Philip­pines: Pam­panga. Per­son­ally, since I’m a (very) proud Ca­balen, I would have loved to de­clare it as THE Culi­nary Cap­i­tal of our coun­try; but to be com­pletely ob­jec­tive and ab­so­lutely fair, there’s such an abun­dance of di­verse rich­ness in our ar­chi­pel­ago, that to honor just one place would be a great dis­ser­vice to Cavite, Ba­colod, Cebu, Ca­gayan de Oro, Davao… well, the list goes on.

Pam­panga’s pop­u­lar rep­u­ta­tion, and its prox­im­ity to Manila, how­ever, makes it the quick­est, eas­i­est, and most con­ve­nient des­ti­na­tion for a day-long food tour: all that’s needed is a guide to some of its must visit restau­rants. And that’s what we hope this is­sue ac­com­plishes: a handy and help­ful ref­er­ence when you plan your own D-I-Y- food trip to the cities of San Fer­nando and An­ge­les. We’re only scratch­ing the sur­face of course, the prover­bial tip of the culi­nary ice­berg, since there are so many more de­lights and del­i­ca­cies to dis­cover down in Masan­tol up to Ma­bal­a­cat and from Lubao to Cand­aba. Con­sider this as an ap­pe­tizer, a teaser to all the feasts that await you in my home province…

Man­gan Tamu!!!
