Crimson Hotel goes Kapampangan (photo heavy)

Crimson Hotel has always been really great when it comes to coming up with different themes for their Cafe Eight buffet. This year, they decided to bring Pampanga to the South by having a Kapampangan Feast to celebrate Independece Day. After all, Pampanga is known as the culinary capital of the Philippines.


The program started with a presentation of folk dance performed by in house staff which proves that the emloyees of Crimson Hotel are quite the talented bunch. They also had a showcase of the best streetfood that Pampangas has to offer.


This one is a pinakbet empanada. Surprisingly, it was actually good. I initially thought "eewww" but once I had a bite, it was really good. The empanada and the pinakbet complemented each other.


As for the more exotic ones, it was also made available to us as it will be to the public starting June 12 to 24.




They also offer merienda favorites such as turon and suman.



If this isn't enough to get you to come to Crimson and celebrate Independence Day, here's a feast fit for a king. This had kuhol, kalderetang kambing, sisig, rice, camaron rebosado, and grilled fish.


They also had drinks available. Sago't gulaman, melon shake, mango juice, and buko juice were definite favorites.


For those craving something more Filipino, they also had manggang hilaw and singkamas with bagoong. YUMMY! I just wish they made the singkamas a bit thinner so it's more easy to chew.


I had a lot of fun at the Kapampangan Media Launch of Crimson Hotel. Thank you Miss Ronie.


PS. I ended up drinking at least 4 of these.
