One of my co-workers brought something new to me and yet has been gracing many Kapampangan dining tables for quite some time now - Enchiladang Pako or Pako Salad. This is yet another delectable Kapampangan food composed of fresh young fern with tomatoes, onions, and salted egg or ebun buro. I love the crunch of the ferns, except the too smelly onion cubes.
But overall impact - fresh and healthy Kapampangan delicacy at its finest!

Last night, I went to my guy's house and we ate a very healthy Kapampangan dinner which consists of Talbus Kamuti, Pritung Balasenas (fried eggplant), and Tinapa (steamed fish). It's one of those barrio meals I always crave for.
What took my breath away is the fried Talbus Kamuti or leaves of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas). I rarely enjoy green leafy vegetables but when I tasted the savoury freshness of Talbus Kamuti, I almost forgot my name! It is known to be an excellent source of Vitamin A & C.
This delicacy might not be just confined in Pampanga, but what the heck this is where I had the first taste of this healthy dish.
It's best eaten when dipped in baguk or shrimp paste and either vinegar or calamansi. Rrrrrr...

Pampanguenos or Kapampangans are one of the most food-obsessed people in the Philippines. Their palate can accommodate a wide variety of tastes and textures ranging from the crunchy camaro (cricket-like insects) and balang (locusts) to the smooth and creamy leche flan.
This blog is made especially for the celebration of the authentic Kapampangan love for food. I will also post some Kapampangan restaurant or eatery review every now and then as inspired by dessertcomesfirst blog.
Malaus ko pu!
