As a Kapampangan, I was raised to love food. I grew up in a household that loves food. My mom (bias it may seem) is the best cook! And for these reasons, I have a great respect to Kapampangan cooks. And this brings us to the topic about the restaurant under spot light-Cabalen. Cabalen is an eat-all-you-can dining place that mainly serves Kapampangan food/menu. The Place
It was just two weeks before we finally bid goodbyes to our school and studying. But before we part ways, we decided to have one final lunch party. Together with my blockmates, we visited SM Mall of Asia for our lunch date and visit at the Manila bay. Since we were particularly a big party, we opt to dine in Cabalen. We knew we can stay longer and at the same time eat longer!The Food
It was unlimited food! My personal favorite in Cabalen is their tapang kalabaw. Yes, it is made from carabao’s meat. Carabao’s meat is particularly hard to cook and soften but Cabalen is successful in doing this. It is not actually very soft but is well cooked and provided the sour-sweet taste I’m looking for. Other meals available in their buffet table are kare-kare, kaldereta, lechon, lemon grass chicken and many more! You can ask for freshly cooked sisig and they’ll gladly serve it in your table. For dessert, they offer a chocolate fondue with marshmallows, banana and melon. They also have pichipichi, halo-halo and saba con yelo.
It is a great place for family dinner and different occasions. Instead of cooking and preparing for a birthday/baptismal/anniversary party, you can choose to dine in this restaurant that serves great tasting Kapampangan dishes eat all you can style!
