The restaurant is decorated with photographs of the city, its people and artifacts. I just love how they preserve these things, if you want to learn more about the history of Angeles City while enjoying great food, Camalig is the place to visit.
Camalig is famous for its Armando’s Pizza or also known as “Ang Pambansang Pizza” which are patently prepared and baked using the same classic homegrown recipe. Handmade artisan dough, fresh toppings and richly thick sauce slow-cooked for six hours, that’s what make their pizza different from the rest.
During our visit, we tried the famous Sisig of Pampanga, it a version which is perfect with hot rice. It tasted great, adding a little chili and chicken liver will make this dish more “manyaman”.
Next dish is the Deep Fried Chicken Wings, it looks so ordinary but actually its very tasty, as they say looks can be deceiving, ehe it’s a good dish also for it’s one of their best sellers.
After those dishes, let’s move to their famous Armando’s Pizza, it’s one of the bestsellers, topped with generous portion of cheese, peperoni, ground beef, green pepper, mushroom & Canadian bacon. It’s a pizza for all, love it!
After that we had the Marco’s 3 Way, it has sun-dried tomatoes & kesong puti in three Filipiniana flavors: tuyu, tinapa & classic chicken adobo. We choose the chicken adobo. If you are adventurous with the taste, try this, something different from the usual pizza. Love the simplicity yet flavorful taste of this pizza, the 3 strong ingredients are battling in every bite.
Kapampangan Pizza? We had Doy’s Kapampangan, a pizza topped with lungganisa (Kapampangan sausage), ebun buru (salted duck egg), onion & pickle relish. Something new to the taste yet still delicious.
Those flavorful dishes and pizza are just perfect with a refreshing Kamias Shake. The fruits are freshly picked in the backyard, we even saw the tree. Love this shake for it’s not too sour, a little bit of sweetness balance the taste.
We had a great dining experience, it’s a mixture of great food, excellent service and astonishing ambiance. This restaurant make you appreciate more of being a Kapampangan, the food and the culture . I’m just so proud to be one! Thank you Sir Mark Nepomuceno for accommodating us and supporting the event.
