Enjoy delicious Kapampangan dishes such as the Crispy Belly Kare-Kare, Rellenong Bangus or the Crispy Pansit Palabok among other culinary mainstays as The Original Pino holds a Kapampangan Food Festival beginning October 7.
Pampanga during Spanish colonial times became the capital of Philippine cuisine. It was a melting pot of Spanish, Mexican, Malay and even French influences that would go on to define what Filipino cuisine was to the rest of the world.
Beginning October 7, The Original Pino brings back two of its celebrity chefs, Editha Singian and Sau Del Rosario, to treat Cebuanos to the distinct flavors of Pampanga.
