Cabalen is in deed one of my favorite places to eat,
i love the filipino dishes here they really captured that homey and classic
tastes of our dishes it makes you feel like your having a buffet in a fiesta.
everything here is good the service ambiance and most of all the taste of their food.

very tasty filippino food
Smile 2012-12-11
Shopping in Mall of Asia we got hungry - found Cabalen and were fully satisfied.
Well, 398Php +40 for bottomless softdrinks is at German pricelevel, but quality and taste surely worth it.smile
Especially liked Tossino, Sotanghon, Lechon, Menudo and Miswa. Ang sarab !
Thanks from Germany ! I will truly come back.
Only furnishing could be better. It's all a bit tight for , lets say "stronger" people like me.

3rd Chance..
Just OK 2012-07-09
That was Pangz celebration for passing the 2 year in M.E. so we dediced to throw a celebration with her family at Cabalen - Glorietta. My main reason to eat again here was too have a big savings since pangz family we're all heavy meal eaters hahaha (Bad) but they are all cute (Bawi) and I want to gave another chance for the said buffet restaurant. In that time my decision & hesitations was well paid off coz luckily all of the dishes was served freshly. The food trays and serving dishes in just a snap where all gone.. as in ang bilis maubos just only 5 - 15 minutes the Cabalen staff will reload and replenish the foods again that's why the food here was mouth-watering coz it was freshly cooked kaya mabenta.. Unlike from their other branches in Robinsons Ermita & SM Megamall that I considered as a lousiest eat all you can restaurant because of it's spoiled taste, sorry to say this that you will just waste your money to eat but it's our own judging of taste..

Kapampangan Eat All You Can
Smile 2011-04-03
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!

Approximately
Php400(Lunch)

Cabalen and Asia
Smile 2010-11-09
A night out with friends at Cabalen in Mall of Asia...

We're up for another hopping trip around the mall that night and we stopped by at Cabalen to satisfy our cravings of Filipino oriented yet with a different twist kind of dishes...

It was a very relaxing mood that evening and to make our stomach full and satiated is just very enjoyable...

Their menu has alot to offer although a little bit expensive yet worth the kind of taste you just exactly craved for... I really like the dish with ampalaya, w/c i already forgot how they called it because it's not really as bitter as most ampalayas are, coz, it's more on crispy sweet as it was combined with tocino on the side...

One of my friend ordered something with chicken, and that is equally as delicious as a fsweet and sour chicken adobo sauce... Well i might have confused you with the description of how it tastes, but let's just say , it is a chicken adobo with a twist as accompanied by side dishes....

I would say it would be a great place to eat specially with family or friends...

Mother's Day @ Cabalen
Smile 2010-10-26
We celebrated this year's Mother's Day at Cabalen in MOA. We wanted to have a unique celebration since the said day was for my mom and my lola.

We love Cabalen because of its authentic Filipino cuisines. Though it is more popular because of its Pampanga dishes, we also have the chance to taste other dishes such as Pinakbet and Ginataan.

They were also famous with their Filipino desserts, such as halo-halo and saba con yelo.

My family really enjoyed our day there. The fact that it doesn't only cater the variety of Filipino dishes, it is also fascinating that they also incorporate the Filipino hospitality with their service. smile

   Make your own halo-halo

 Done eating.. my brother is not yet full I think
