Pampanga is regarded as the culinary center of the Philippines. It is a place where good food is a must, and where great cooks are born. Most of the best places to eat around the country can trace their roots to Pampanga.

When in this foodie haven, one of the places where you can get delicious Kapampangan fare is Susie’s Cuisine.

Originally opened by Anicia Ayson upon the prodding of her relatives who loved her cooking, it is now being run by her daughter, Jesusa “Susie” Ayson – Yabut.

What began as a small carinderia in 1972 has now grown to 14 branches, mostly in Pampanga and Tarlac. Much of their fame can be attributed to their famous pancit luglug (palabok) and native kakanin.

And one of the kakanin that you definitely have to try is the Tibok-tibok.

Tibok tibok is a pudding made purely of carabao’s milk. The name (literally meaning “heartbeat”) was derived from the way the bubbles pulsate up and down when cooking carabao’s milk, resembling that of heartbeats.

Smooth and delicate, each velvety, silky, and creamy spoonful, punctuated with hints of citrus, reminds me of pana cotta. It has just the right amount of sweetness, not too sugary nor too bland. The latik on top gives a crunchy and nutty balance to this delectable sweet.

With this much deliciousness, it’s no wonder that Susie’s sells at least 300 bilaos of Tibok tibok on a daily basis!

Manyaman!

My parents and I went on a daytrip to Pampanga last Wednesday to look for furniture (btw, the furniture scene here in the Philippines is CRAZY!! Our artists are so talented and creative!! 128525) We asked the shop owner where to go for lunch and she recommended this place. Pero di kami kumain dito ng lunch hahahaha labo we ate at this turo-turo place which had really good kare kare and palabok!! Lol review within a review?? Reviewception? Choz.

Anyway back to Susie's Cuisine! We dropped by here to get some pasalubong. We got their sapin sapin, tibok tibok and sylvannas. HOLY CRAP their sapin sapin is the B E S T. It was so soft and medyo melt in your mouth sya. Ugh. Yum. It had lanka bits too. One large bilao was around P420. Their tibok tibok was creamy! It reminded me of maja blanca without the corn. Their sylvannas were addicting. Crunchy and sweet. I had a bad sore throat after eating two pieces... Hehe. Susie's also offered other pasalubongs like nuts, cakes, bars, puto flan, etc. According to the reviews here, the place is usually packed. When we went, there weren't a lot of people but their queueing system was efficient.

This is the best pasalubong place in Pampanga in my opinion!

A work related errand brought us to their branch near Holy Family Academy. We were hungry and stopped for lunch. Their Tibok Tibok was the main reason to eat here but my companions opted to buy that for pasalubong instead.

We were 6 in our group and ordered the Palabok that was good for 5-7 people. It tasted so good and the crunchy chicharon made it even better. It was served in a laminated batya/tansan shaped container on top of a bilao. The portion was huge and I think we brought home about a third of it.

The Okoy Hipon and Siomai were ok but not something I would travel hours for..

All of us went home with a bag of assorted goodies. It is nice to know that they have a branch in Quezon City in case we crave for that Palabok.

*servers were a bit slow to wrap up our extra food. They prioritized attending to new dine in and take out customers
**restroom was clean

Haven't dined here but we often get our Kapampangan treats here before heading back to Manila. there is always a line but you don't really have to wait long cause they have an efficient system. we usually get mochi, a slice of chocolate cake, maja blanca, and silvanas. i don't really know how long Susie's has been in Angeles but i remember going here since i was quite young. the quality of the food did not change, still.yummy and made with a heart. keep it up!

I'm not a big fan of Palabok. But Susie's Pancit Palabok may be the only exception for me. Susie's also prides themselves of being the best in Pampango Kakanin. Again, native desserts (kakanin) ain't at the top of my list when it comes to food. But their Puto de Leche made me a believer. The great cooking makes up for the venue's simplicity. And I'm sure you'll also appreciate how light on the pocket their dishes' big servings are priced. So it must be true that Kapampangans (Pampanga Locals) are arguably the best cooks in the Philippines. And Susie's Cuisine might just be the proof to that claim.

Curiousity hit me, I needed to taste it. Didn't disappoint, the leche flan and puto combination was good. But......

Still my favorite item on the menu:
1) Moist chocolate cake for me

And 2) Daddy's favorite sapin-sapin.

One of Pampanga's renowned and original pasalubong / snack center. Loved their Tibok-tibok, Moche, and Cashew Brittle Balls.

Still part of our Angeles City foodie road trip, a friend who lived just near the area, joined us after lunch. He highly recommended that we bought some popular Kapampangan delicacies as pasalubong.

Susie's Cuisine was his recommended source. It was just a walk behind the new foodie strip, The Quad. We learned that Susie's Cuisine was one of the first local eateries that whipped some of Pampanga's well known delicacies.

The place looked like a busy eatery packed with customers. The first thing that caught me was the delicious aroma of their Pancit Palabok. But, we were still stuffed from our lunch and sweet-endings , thus we regretfully obliged to give up on sampling Susie's popular Palabok. Instead, our friend walked us through the pasalubong counter and recommended the place's popular take-out delicacies.

Tibok-tibok: this was a Pampangan's take on maja blanca. What I loved with their version was that the delicacy was creamier (condensed milk added to the coconut cream used?), richer, and smoother than the usual maja blanca. Perfect with the bud-bod (curdled coconut cream cooked with sugar ). Loved their version!

Moche: a first time try for me. It was another Kapampangan specialty made of thin rice flour wrapped around a sweet mix of red bean paste. Lightly grilled (giving the delicacy a light brown crust) and served with a sweet coconut cream sauce. It was reminiscent of a tikoy roll or those Japanese Mochis. Chewy, sticky, sweet, a bit nutty from the red bean paste, and creamy with the sauce. I loved the texture and the taste of this delicacy that somewhat tasted like a Chinese sweet snack.

Cashew Brittle Balls: in the past, I have always been a fan of Pampanga's Cashew Tarts. But upon our friend's recommendation, he told me to try this. This was currently only available in Pampanga unlike the Cashew Tarts that can be purchased in specialty shops in Manila. He also said that he gave this unique sweet treat as presents to his foreign clients and it was a hit. I now love the Cashew Brittle Balls more than the Cashew Tarts. I love the buttery sticky goo with its sweet-caramelly-nutty taste. Topped with a dollop of round pastry crust, the buttery-salty crust nicely balanced the sweetness of the pastry thus it wasn't overwhelming but rather addicting.

New tries of local delicacies from Susie's and loved them. Will definitely come back next time for more of these sweet treats (and their Palabok which we weren't able to try).

You gotta try their mochi! 128513 Rice dough filled with red bean paste. It's served with a sweet coconut cream which you must pour before eating, otherwise it'll be bland.

Yummy but fattening. HAHA. 128540

Susie's cuisine is famous for Kapampangan delicacies and for the past few days, it is our comfort food here at our dorm. We have chocolate cake, tocino del cielo (mini leche flan , as seen in the picture) and chocorone(chocolate-coated polvorone). All three desserts were superb! Ate almost half of the chocolate cake while my dorm mates ate most of the mini leche flan and chocorone. 128522128540

This is my favorite Pasalubong place in Pampanga. For one, my grandaunt owns it, second, it has the best tibok tibok in the country :)

Trivia : Susie is the name of Lola Aning's adopted daughter

Tibok tibok is kinda like maja Blanca without the corn kernels. Its made of carabao's milk so expect it to melt in your mouth. You top each serving with fried niyog (not sure how you really call it). Sorry I've got no visuals coz they're all wrapped in bilaos.

A bilao is 400 bucks each.

Aside from that, I bought chichacorn (ilocos), turrones de casuy and macaroons... Those I still Gotta try... I just wanted something to munch on my way back to Manila

*other must try : moche, sapin sapin and pinipig

My mom ordered palabok, leche flan, and puto this morning, when i was picking it up awhile ago they only gave me the palabok. i said my mom also ordered lecheflan and puto but they said my mom already got it. i insisted that we did not receive any of the orders since it was intended for this afternoon's visitors. I talked to the manager who was very impolite, after a few mins of conversation they found the orders on top of the cabinet! tsh! pathetic!!! i did not even receive a sorry from the staff nor the manager. The manager was also sarcastic! The manager needs some serious training on interpersonal communication with customers.
