The one thing we do best in my hometown,



When in Pampanga,
Eat as
(much as) the Kapampangans Do!

If there is anything that makes Pampanga famous,
it’s the delicious food!

And if the success of the recent Kapampangan Food Fair
at the Salcedo Market last June 21 is any indication,

food lovers young and old will have a blast at the
2nd Pistang Kapampangan King Sinukwan on November 29,
Saturday evening at the Old Heritage District
along Consunji Street in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Visit during the cool evening hours,
when dramatic ambient lighting and flood lights
will be used for the very first time to showcase
the beauty of San Fernando's Heritage Houses!

The whole stretch of the historic street will closed
from 4:30 pm to 12:00 midnight,
to light up the ancestral houses and to give way
to a food fair and fanfare that brings together
the best of Pampanga cuisine –

from authentic Kapampangan cooking by
Everybody's Café (a Tatler Best Restaurant in 2008),
Abe, Bale Kapampangan, Jun Jun's BBQ and Bibingka,
Teresita R. Razon's Palabok and Halo Halo
and home-cooked meals from Pamangan by Des Torres.

For the health-conscious, freshly-picked fiddle head fern salad
from the Hizon Orchard will be served.

Pasalubong items such as Carreon's Pastillas and Plantanillas,
Navarro's Taba ng Talangka, WOW Mani, Kuliat Cakes and Empanada
and Lailen's Pastries;

as well as mouth-watering offerings from
La Moderna Bakery (Masa Podrida and Gorgorias),
Bakeline (Mamon Tostado and Empanaditas),

fresh sugar cane juice from Alex Patio,
Heirloom Desserts from Mitchie Hizon,

and barrio goodies from the town of Sta. Rita
such as the duman and freshly-rolled native barquillos.

Other delectable attractions include Duck Ham from Lubao's Pride,
Ostrich Steak from Orstrichland's Bruno and Diego,
and the different Native Suman from Cabalantian.

There will also be an on-the-spot Cooking Contest
that seeks to discover and develop new talent in the field of cooking,
and performances by the Magsilbi Tamu Brass Band, Arti Sta Rita,
Aslag Kapampangan and the newly-formed Teatro Ima at Arti.

So have a reunion with your family and friends
and plan a pilgrimage to the birthplace of
sisig, tocino, buru, tamales and tibuk-tibuk!

Proceeds from the event will go to
the Foundation for Lingap Kapampangan Inc.,
more popularly known as the Save Pampanga Movement,
which advocates for the preservation of
Kapampangan culture and arts.

Come in your most comfortable “barrio Filipiniana” attire
and get ready to go on a hometown feast for all your senses!
