Manyaman is delicious in Kapampangan language . This is not our first time to eat at this Kapampangan fine dining restaurant .
Mangan Glorietta 2, Makati
This is one of the regional food that is quite close to our hearts . Since 2001, Mangan Restaurant has been serving Filipino food that celebrates the uniqueness of Kapampangan cuisine. From the name of the brand which means “Let’s eat”, it has become the company tagline in enticing guests to try and enjoy home cooked meals despite their busy schedules.
Kapampangan Culinary Magic “Mangan” is the Pampango word for eat. This restaurant is quite accessible to the commuting public as this is near MRT Ayala -Makati station . The restaurant boast of larger sitting capacity of between 120 to 130 people at any given time .
There was some sort of contest for online group and we were grouped into 4 persons per group . We were given 10 minutes to review the menus. After the short 10 minutes , Our group was given 3 kinds of dishes which we all guessed correctly .
tibok-tibok with latik ( Php 120) per serving
There was a tie between our group ( together with Astig writers and founder Mr. Dennison Uy ) and group 3 , which is just adjacent table – the host made our eyes closed and one of our team member fed me a dessert . I was thinking that it could be maja blanca or tibok-tibok since this is a Kapampangan dessert and i have not tasted any corn bits. Giving a wild guess and whispering to the host . Our group got it right ! It was creme ala creme of the night !
sisig , crispy pata , crispy pata- diablo , bulalo , bibingka
Mangan had three kinds of pata – Prichon Pata , Patang Demonyo ( spicy ) and Original Crispy Pata
This is another specialty dish which uses squid ink and squid as part of the ingredients. We liked the kamias and chicharon ( pork cracking ) as toppings. MUST TRY
This is another MUST TRY for those who wanted a different taste and version of our pancit with shredded chicken .
