Apag Marangle perfectly captures the taste of classic Kapampangan cooking with its mainstream and exotic dishes. Each dish is cooked with great care, giving you authentic local flavors.

Today, Chef Manuela Cherry Pasion Tan hosted an overflowing authentic Kapampangan feast among members of Pampanga Media in celebration of Apag Marangle’s 15th Anniversary. “Most of my customers are balikbayans and local tourists so I would like to promote, reach out and reintroduce the local cuisine to fellow Kapampangans especially to the younger generation and to our cabalens who doesn’t cook anymore at home,” Chef Cherry said.

Mainstream to Exotic Dishes

For classic Filipino favorites with a twist of Kapampangan flavors, you can try their Asado dish (traditional chicken and pork roast) that is not like your ordinary Asado. The carabeef a.k.a pindang damulag is a Kapampangan delicacy, made for people who desire a gamier, tastier feel to their meat dishes and my all time favorite relyenong sisig bangus. The pepalukluk manuk or seated chicken, dry steamed over a bed of salt. Of course you wouldn’t miss Kare-kare (Kapampangan original beef oxtail and tripe stewed in a creamy peanut sauce) for only 595 pesos.

Other popular dishes include begukan (wok-fried pork belly with shrimp paste), humba (pork braised in yellow bean paste), suam mais (corn soup in a clay pot), and sizzling balut to name a few.

Further, it’s worth to try the binulu (a soup dish slowly cooked in a bulu , a variety of bamboo): Pesang bulig (mudfish), sigang paro (shrimp) and Tinolang Tugak (frog), price ranges 385 to 415 pesos.

If you want more gastronomic adventure, they have the exact meal for you. Apag Marangle also serves exotic dishes.
