Travel to the north side of Luzon and experience a grand of food festival at the 3rd annual Big Bite: Northern Food Festival at the parking lot area of Marquee Mall in Angeles, Pampanga. The food fest will bring 100 kinds of food concepts from the Northern Luzon region this Oct 16-18, 2015. Entrance is FREE and also take a time to over indulge yourself with the yummy “sisig” at the event, because that’s the main specialty in Pampanga and it’s a must have, must eat and never leave town without a single bite of sisig.
Yesterday at the opening day, Big Bite showcased three kinds of “sisig” that was cooked in different way – in Pampanga, we have the traditional pork sisig cooked by Chef Sau del Rosario, for Pangasinan there’s the Bangus sisig cooked by Danilo Maramba , and for Ilocos kind of sisig, Chef Jackie dela Cruz cooked a dinakdakan sisig.
It was a Sisig Festival yesterday, but my heart goes to the traditional sisig because it’s the kind of sisig I always eat during my youngling days.
Food, sweets, traditional dishes from Region 1, 2, 3 and Cordillera Administrative Region will be there at the Big Bite food fest.
Rain or shine…booths will be open for your tummy needs.
Foodies…prepare to munch!

Im kinda sad that I forgot to buy a set of their empanada…
I always buy 5 pcs of empanada and I store it in our freezer. The empanada doesn’t get spoiled easily when inside the freezer.
I just reheat it in our oven if ever I want to bite this for my merienda or breakfast.
I tried eating one..omg…..super sour! hahahah
I heard that they use this Rattan fruit to power up the sour taste of a Sinigang soup
Bagnet is like a super star here in Big Bite.
I saw three booths selling a bulk of bagnet.

Garlic chili sauces and other condiments
Ipasul blue flame cooking stove.
My wife was excited when she saw this Ipasul photo on my Facebook, she requested that I should buy for our home, I told her that the stove is made for “ipa” as fuel and not for coal and wood. And also power by a mini electric blower to speed up the flame.
Here’s a contact details if anyone of you wants an Ipasul stove
Any one remembered La La ???
