While visiting the old part of the city in Angeles we came across this delightful little bakeshop which was directly across the road from the university in Sto Rosario Street. The cheesebread was tasty at 5 peso each and there was a sign informing us that their bakery was the home of the original cheesebread (don't know if it is true but it certainly deserved the praise). There were other tasty treats on offer like pandesal, pan de coco and spanish bread, besides pasalubomgs (gifts) such as peanuts, cashews, etc.
If you are in the area, drop by and have a snack. Seats are difficult to find as it is frequented by many students from the university across the road.
Located at 940 Field's Avenue this long established sports bar has excellent food and is open 24 hours a day, and is one of the more respectable places in the avenue. There are 2 pool tables that are more or less occupied all the time, beer is a reasonable price and there is always a waitress standing nearby to take your order. Our friends and I had 4 different selections from the menu, sloppy Joe, Thai Curry, Burger and mixed seafood. All were excellent and probably a reasonable price for that area of Angeles. The only drawback is, if you have a seat by the window facing the street there is a steady stream of locals trying to sell you things.
While not exactly a restaurant Jenny's Carenderia serves great food for 40 pesos including rice. We were just wandering around and had decided to eat at the shopping mall when we passed the table that contained all the pots of various foods. I normally don't eat at these places but Jenny was in the process of making tortas, fried eggplant in egg, so as it was freshly cooked we decided to eat here. My wife had bangus (milkfish) and we were both satisfied with her cooking. Jenny was very talkative and helpful informing us which jeepney to catch for our next destination.
Newly opened oppiste Normas money changer in Teodoro street close to fields, Chef entertained me with his nice explanation and great foods, price quality is very in Balance, Beers 35
Favorite Dish: Nasi Goreng special ask the chef why
This is my favorite place to hang-out after a hard day's work. It is located beside a golf course lake. Ambiance is very relaxed and laid back. (they have comfy couches) Acoustic bands perform on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. They serve drinks below zero. Its location is outdoors so I would not recommend going there on rainy days. Although they have huge tent-like umbrellas per table. You must also have your own ride because the place is not so accessible to commuters since it's inside Clark Freeport Zone.
Favorite Dish: Potato Skins, Hungarian Sausage, and the cocktails.
Its already a popular restaurant well known for the delicious Italian food as it is owned by an Italian (does this automatically make is authentic?) chef. Everything we have tried so far are great but I love the cheese pizza. The only problem here is during peak tourist season and weekends, it's a bit diffuclt to get a seat.
Googled this from the Internet:
"Located along Don Juico Avenue within Clarkfield in Angeles City, C' Italian Dining is a first-class restaurant that offers delightful dishes and highly efficient service for everyone. For only 400 pesos to 1,000 pesos, guests can enjoy satisfying meals at this outstanding dining facility. In terms of appetizers, people can always order any of the luscious treats available including famous and delectable Proscuitto e Melone, Cozza Torino, as well as C’ Classic Bruchetta. But for a special treat try the world famous Panizza which many travel all the way to Angeles from all over just to get a taste of this great dish.
In the meantime, for those who love distinct and mouthwatering rice meals, they can also try other in-house specialties such as Grilled Pork Crown Roast with Red Wine Reduction, Pan Roasted Pork Shoulder Steak with Lemon Wine Sauce, and Whole Lamb Shank Braised in Rich Red Wine Sauce. Aside from these tasty delicacies, the place is also famous for its cozy and relaxing ambiance."
Don Epoy Mexican Grill is a find, you can't even notice it next to holy angel university in angeles city.
food is simple mexican but tasty and affordable. they have a very nice ambiance and design of the place. just make sure you reserved the place before you go since it only occupies about 15 persons. they deliver too.
Favorite Dish: I love the steak burrito and steak platter it is so tender taste like they marinate it and they use tenderloin. They also have the Horchata (mexican drink)where in no body in Angeles serves this as im writing this review. dessert is the sopapillas (ice cream and chips) it is so good that the sweetness of the ice cream and saltiness of the chips blends.
I found Tequila Reef to be well rounded in all the aspects a restaurant should be. Their menu is packed with all your favorite Mexican dishes but also an extensive list of American favorites including BAR-B-Q Pork Ribs (the best around), steaks, sandwiches, subs, burgers, hot dogs, New Orleans "Cajun" Specialties and popular Filipino dishes. The staff is super attentive and fun to be around. I was amazed at the size of the portions because the prices are totally affordable. Make sure you are really hungry before going here! They also have the best margaritas in town along with doing something I've never seen, a special hand shaken margarita whereby a waitress of your choice shakes your drink in front of your eyes. A must see! Their location is right in the heart of all the action so it's convenient for all. I ate there at least 10 times during my stay and brought many friends. The place is really clean inside and out much to Western standards. They also just added a new upstairs music lounge called Suave's Music Lounge featuring the Longhair Brothers, Jhun and Alex. I would highly recommend having a nice dinner downstairs, then head up to the music lounge for some great entertainment at night.
Favorite Dish: BAR-B-Q Pork Ribs because they are so tender. They fall right off the bone and the portions are huge.
Myrnaki Greek Pilipino restaurant is located in authentic Philippine Nipa hut, that give you the feeling as if you are dining in the province, but you are in the middle of Angeles City.
The food is not too expensive and of a good quality.
You will find traditional Greek dishes like Suvlaki, Mouzaka and Giros Pita.
For the Pilipino Girlfriend there is a choice of Pilipino dishes.
Myrnaki is a romantic place to go for a dinner or lunch
Favorite Dish: The Mouzaka is very Nice and very authentic and also the suvlaki with Greek salad is one of my favorite dishes
I have lived in Angeles for quite some time and heard that the EZ Rider cafe was reopened under the new name of the Screamin' Eagle Cafe, I knew the food was good before so I wanted to give it a try to see if it was the same or better.
When I walked in to the cafe the first thing that was apparent was the new colour scheme which was a lot better than before, the menu is pretty much the same but with a few additions, I chose to eat the pork chop dinner which was served with mashed potatoes and vegetables, it was very good and the portion was very generous, the staff were very friendly and took care of me very well, they also advised me that on weekend there is lots of live bands so I will be returning one evening to try more food and live music.
This is a great place to hang out. It's right next to the Wild Orchid Resort which is a great place to stay. If, like me, you like to chill with friends or meet new ones, have a nice conversation without having to scream over earsplitting loud music, eat good food and generally have a nice time, this is your place. The staff is very friendly, the food is good, and reasonably priced. I've had a quiet afternoon lunch here with a few friends, to a large party and all was excellent. It's in the heart of the nightlife district so when you're ready to go dancing or bar hopping, you're already there.
Favorite Dish: I regularly bought the platters of chicken, lumpia, quesadillas, buffalo wings, etc, and invited all the girls to my table. It was a really fun time. I'm looking forward to it again soon.
What makes this resto/bar special is not just the extensive and delectable menu (serving local and Thai food, and specialty coffee at their coffee shop) but also their line-up of really good music bands that plays music from the 60s and even through the recent top hits. Every night a mainstay featured band plays all night long. Jamming with the band can be a great experience. Dancing is highly encouraged, apparent with the large dancefloor and readily available Dance Instructors that stays in the resto for this purpose. One can request to dance with their favorite sentimental songs.
Restaurant is much like a covered garden patio, large enough to sit 150 guests.
Favorite Dish: Loved their iced coffee blends, their version of the Kapampangan sisig and their version of Thai dishes. Their Binagoongang crispy pata is the best i've tasted!
Bambino's has an ambience of an cozy old Italian restaurant, and it's adjoining cafe and salon gives the feeling of cluster comfort where you can move from a nice pasta dinner to a coffee garden. It has ample parking and close enough to the night happenings at buzzling Field's Avenue. The maitre d' (sorry forgot his name) is very attentive and alert to any needs a diner may pose and make short but very entertaining conversation. They also have a sufficient selection of wines to suit your taste and budget.
Subdued lighting is relaxing but restaurant may need probably a lamp for each table :-)
Favorite Dish: Their pizzas are great even if i'm not really a fan of classic italian pizza, i end up eating more than i plan. Mussles in cheese are fresh and delectable.
UPDATE 6/24/08: Bambino's has closed a few months ago, and Bacio's, another italian restaurant opened in its place. Will try the new place and write something about it ...
Herbs and Greens is located along McArthur hway near the boundary of San Fernando and Angeles City in the district called Telebastagan. Try to locate the subdivision named Hacienda Royale. H&G is right beside it. They serve dinners until 10PM and special occasions.
They serve a wide selection and varieties of salads from their garden, steaks, pastas, and unique appetizers that are a meal in itself.
Re-posting my Sn Fernando tip here due to the proximity of H&G to Angeles City.
See http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tp/1b367a/ for the complete tip.
When you see EAT ALL YOU CAN EAT, ALL YOU WANT, the only thing you want to do is to go into that place with an empty stomach and chow down all that they have to offer. This place was highlighted by Myla as it seems like a good place to try a lot local cuisines all in one place. When we left this place, we could hardly walk. Lunch is priced about P161 per person and dinner at P269 person.
This buffet place is situated on the ground floor of SM Clark.
