(SPOT.ph) Pampanga is known for being the place for food—but have you really been able to capitalize on that fact? Or should we say, has your stomach benefited from this province's close proximity to the Metro? The next time you feel a hankering, whether for actual food or just some form of momentary escape from the daily grind, we say drive on up to Pampanga. And in case you don't know where to go, Studio Spot has taken on the hard task of going on a food crawl for your benefit. Yup, totally not for us.

On a prime corner spot in Korea Town Angeles—a stone's throw away from Clark proper—is Donenoo. Sure, there's a whole slew of Korean spots to check out along the Fil-Am Frienship road, but Donenoo's high on our list thanks to their excellent take on KBBQ. Feast on authentic Korean eats prepared right on your table, samgyup style, though this time they prep it for you.

All it takes is one word: Sisig. You've gone all the way to Pampanga after all, so try the best versions of this unbeatable dish—and Aling Lucing, real name Lucia Cunanan, is the OG. Situated in a non-descript canteen along a main road, Aling Lucing's spot is the type of place where you can really eat to your heart's and stomach's content. They serve up a superbly tasty version of sisig on that sizzling plate we all know and love. Be prepared to order some extra rice—or another bottle of beer.

If you're in it to try local delicacies, then give Susie's Cuisine a try. This franchise is known for their takes on Kapampangan classics and grew from a small stall in Angeles City back in the '70s, as helmed by Anicia Ayson. Nowadays, Susie's is the spot to go to for kakanin and pancit luglug. We say give their extra creamy take on Tibok-tibok a try; don't miss out on this deeply rich kakanin.

Nestled in a quiet residential area is this quaint eatery, that has grown well and strong over the past years—with many thanks to simply good food. Mila's is known primarily for their tokwa't baboy, a surprisingly healthy and clean but no less fillling take, but definitely don't miss out on their sisig either.

Kambing at bibe, anyone? Wind down your drive at this chill roadside restaurant in San Fernando. Lola Sisa is known for serving up excellent takes on  Kapampangan fare; don't miss out on their adobo and kaldereta of, what else, kambing at bibe. With a low-key outdoor setting, it's the perfect place to chat with friends over drinks and really filling and soul-warming food.
