Aling Lucing

02.12.2012: Dinner – 17th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Continuation

We left the event before the fireworks, the bipolar weather made it hard for the balloons to take off the ground 🙁 One thing that I was really excied about this trip was going back to Aling Lucing’s.

Aling Lucing is very famous for their sisig. It is a quaint restaurant – carinderia in Pampanga tha is worth the long trip!

We arrived there at around 6:30PM and most of their food are almost sold out! If it weren’t because of my parents’ convincing “skills” we wouldn’t have gotten a plate of grilled chicken and 4 servings of sisig! (The sisig got sold out after we ordered)

Wish I was there when Anthony Bourdain paid a visit to Aling Lucing’s! How awesome is it to have a foreign Chef visit a local restaurant? Much more a restaurant that is not located in the Metro! Just WOW – and yeah that’s how good Aling Lucing’s sisig is! Even Anthony Bourdain said so 😛

I love pairing grilled Filipino food with tomatoes,grilled eggplant and shrimp paste (bagoong)

Their “side dish combo” served with buro.

DISCLAIMER: All of my food shots suck! Don’t ask me why but they just do 🙁 

The best sisig I have ever tasted (so far). No seasonings nor egg needed!

We all loved how tender and grilled perfectly the chicken was! Nom nom nom

We ended our trip with a simple dinner! Dining in Aling Lucing makes our family trip worth remembering because of the local fare that we had. It made us all feel the essence of going on an “out of town trip”. <3


Discovered a new drink from Fruitas when we stopped-over the gasoline station! Melon yogurt drink mi new paboritooo! =))

One week to go 🙁
