Angeles

Pampanga is known as the “Culinary Capital of the Philippines” so it’s no surprise that Angeles City has established itself as one of the best places to sit down and eat. The city is home to many great restaurants like Bale Dutung.

Made famous by chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain, Bale Dutung (which means “House of Wood” in the Kapampangan language) is chef Claude Tayag and his wife’s foray into the world of slow dining. Guests are treated to a 10-course meal, which can take as long as three hours, featuring dishes like lechon (roast pig) five-ways and kare-kareng dagat (seafood cooked in peanut sauce) .

The restaurant also serves as Tayag’s art studio where the chef’s various sculptures and paintings are on display The restaurant requires reservations, so be sure to call ahead.

Aside from ten course meals, you can also try the Tayags’ other restaurant, Downtown Cafe, where they serve classic Kapampangan dishes as well as some of Bale Dutung’s specialities.

Angeles City is also the birthplace of sisig, a dish that’s made up of pigs’ ears and snouts, chopped up and fried together with chili peppers and onions. Lucia Cunanan is credited with inventing the dish in 1974, and her restaurant, Aling Lucing’s, is still found in the city.

If you’re an adventure seeker who finds himself in Angeles, you can trek Mount Pinatubo, an active volcano. The trek can take no more than an hour and ends at the beautiful Lake Pinatubo, a crater lake that was formed after the volcano’s climactic eruption in 1991.

Angeles City is also known for being a health and wellness destination. Visitors can check out Puning Hot Springs, a resort located at the base of Mount Pinatubo. The area features eight hot spring pools and a single cold spring pool. Visitors can also indulge in mud baths made out of volcanic sand.

For a unique sightseeing experience, contact the Angeles City Flying Club. The club provides ultralight plane rentals to experienced pilots and introductory flying lessons to beginners for less than ₱2000 (US$45). It’s one of the best ways to see the beauty of Angeles City and the rest of the Pampanga province.
