For an authentic Kapampangan eatery, of course, sisig won’t be missed out in the menu.

In its new location, Calle Lutong Pampanga showcases authentic Kapampangan cuisine and delicacies that fit your budget. It is open from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM, and serves breakfast, lunch, merienda (afternoon snack), and dinner.
For breakfast, they have your classic ‘silog’ (fried rice and egg) meals, while for lunch, merienda, and dinner, they indulge us with all-Filipino food choices on the menu cooked the Kapampangan way. So, expect adobo (chicken or pork stewed in vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, bay leaves, and peppercorns), kare-kare (a peanut-based stew of oxtail, tripe, meat, and vegetables), kaldereta (pork, goat, beef or chicken and stewed in tomatoes), lechon kawali (crispy deep fried pork belly), bulalo (beef soup containing shank with bone marrow), mami (noodle soup), dinuguan (pork blood stew), pansit (noodles), and arozcaldo (Filipino congee).
Of course, Calle Lutong Pampanga wouldn’t miss the all-original Kapampangan sisig (made from parts of pig head and liver, seasoned with calamansi and chili peppers) from its menu, and the Kapampangan delicacy kilayin (minced pork lungs, chopped pork meat and liver marinated and cooked in vinegar and spices). Also packed and branded by the restaurant are the tabang talangka (crab fat) in a bottle and a plastic of chicharon or pitityan (pork rinds) to enjoy for take-outs or for pasalubong (souvenir).
