The Bossman invited us to join a tour of his native land, lels.. Famfanga! And we were just too happy to go along. The last time we were in Pampanga was 3 holy weeks ago. And another one when we ate at C’s Italian Restaurant on Valentines.
We were so looking forward to boss Spanx taking us around hole in the wall restos to feast on local specialties.
At 11am, we were on the NLEX hungry & ready to rumble. Kap had errands that day that couldn’t be waylaid further, so it was just me & the kids.. and my adopted daughter Kathi! ;))
First stop. Mila’s Original Tokwa’t Baboy where we had the famous tokwa’t baboy, sisig and wait for it.. their LEGENDARY TOCINO BBQ!
OOTD: My top is from Criselda’s, recently purchased with the Rustan’s GC from the kids for Mother’s Day. ;) I just had to say it & thank them for their thoughtfulness! I love my new top. <3 My shorts from the PLUS-SIZE section of ZALORA, an online store we frequent. What I can’t find in stores, I buy from Zalora, especially shoes. My feet are wide so it’s really hard for me to find one that suits me. So shopping online at ZALORA makes things simpler & faster for me. :)
Second stop. Downtown Cafe by Claude Tayag who happens to be Boss Spanky’s real to goodness h-uncle! ;) That’s for tomorrow!
Third stop. Susie’s Cuisine for some pasalubong. Of course the girls went gaga over the garlic peanuts! And the tibok-tibok!

Fourth stop. Duty Free at PUREGOLD. My baby son finally found his much coveted Hawaiian Punch! Yay! After searching far & wide, sa Famfanga lang pala matatagpuan hay!
Fifth stop. Homemade Treasures by Chona Ayson. We were beyond full but we forced ourselves to still have some of her yummy ensaymadas! More on that the next day!
Sixth stop. We were supposed to have drinks at Iguana’s Mexican. But decided to pass that pit stop & go directly to what was our last destination.. Bahn Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery for some sandwiches & phos.

Thank you so much Boss Spanks for an awesome food trip! Yes, the sun was glaring & the heat was deadly even in the air-conditioned van & restos (grabe malapit ba sa Sun ang famfanga bakit ganun ka-init??). But the company made up for whatever inconvenience we had along the way. I had so much fun that I’m already asking the bossman.. PRETTY PLEASE CAN I GO ALONG PART 2 TOO??
