You have to try the following:
Morcon
Hito (catfish) with buro (fermented rice) and mustard leaves
longganiza
hot chocolate
pako (ferns) salad
sinigang na ulang

To die for!

I'm not too adventurous so I haven't tried the more adventurous dishes.

Stopped by the Angeles City location across from Nepo Mart. Skip the place! I went there from the hoopla I read online. We had the Morcon, karekare, fried hito, and Paksiw Bangus with high expectations. Overall everything tasted like they have been sitting too long in the case. The Paksiw was bland, the Morcon was not only expensive but quite seasoned. The kk and hito were just ok. For the price of the food I expected better. I would have been happier at a jolly bee.

Going back to Manila from a Bataan road trip, we skipped SCTEX and went straight to San Fernando proper to have a meal at Everybody's Cafe.

The restaurant is a little bit hard to find since San Fernando itself has lots of rerouting with traffic jams almost rivalling that of a Metro Manila city (and it was a Sunday).

When we found it, the restaurant's facade has changed since I last visited it more than a decade ago. Still, it retained the same turo-turo style of ordering with various Kapampangan specialties you won't find in Manila laid out in front of you and ready to be reheated (unfortunately, if you're looking for freshly-prepared meals, look elsewhere since reheating is de rigueur in the turo-turo system).

We ordered betute or stuffed frogs, tapang kalabaw, and morcon, which according to the server is their best-seller. The frogs were tasty but the ground pork stuffing overpowered the frog's flavor, which can be good or bad depending on how adventurous you are. The tapang kalabaw or carabao meat strips were deliciously sweet and tender, almost tocino-like and good with rice. The morcon or the Kapampangan version of a Spanish meatloaf was definitely flavorful though it was surprisingly expensive (in fact, the most expensive item on our list - no wonder the server was pushing it). Somehow, we missed on the ubiquitous Pampanga favorite - the sisig as it seems not available or unrecognizable among the multitude of food items. I am wondering how would it compare to Aling Lucing's, the originator of the popular pulutan dish.

The Pampanga region in the Philippines is well known for its cuisine. Everybody's Cafe is certainly the place to go for Pampangueno cuisine. The morcon, a "meatloaf" dish with a Spanish flair is one of the best I've tasted. If you are adventurous and looking for something different, they serve 'Camarro' a crispy cricket dish, yes you read it right, crickets. This restaurant was even featured in the Food Network in Andrew Zimmern's show a few years ago, for this dish. Or if you want you can also try their stuffed frog legs. Aside from these dishes, traditional Filipino dishes are also being served. Service is fast as most of the dishes are pre-cooked. This restaurant is definitely highly recommended.
