Since opening their first branch in Angeles City back in 2015, Hungry Neighbors has been a go-to restaurant for kapampangans. The idea for ‘Hungry Neighbors’ came from where their first branch was located – near villages. It is owned by three siblings who were once cooking for their friends and family, and wanted everyone to get a taste of their quality cooking.
If you look at their logo, you will see that the forks are of different sizes, each one representing one of the siblings. This restaurant serves a fusion of Western and Asian dishes. The recipes are homegrown and their secret recipe? Quality!
Take a look at some of the restaurant’s bestsellers:
Hearty Sicillian with Greens, Php255
This salad has it all: the greens, the heavy honey mustard sauce, fruits, and chicken. If you’re looking for a light meal, this is it! This is definitely a meal in itself, though some prefer to start and end it here. If you’re hungry for more, though, read on!
The Wild Wings, Php255
If you’re looking for pulutan, try these chicken wings with a tangy sauce that goes well with an ice cold beer. The usual buffalo wings are messy to eat, but these wild wings are the perfect dip and eat!
Lechon Macau, Php195
A customer favorite since Day 1, this Lechon Macau should be your go-to when you’re incredibly hungry. For the price, you will get a shower of flavors from the crispy lechon on top of flavorful fried rice.
Bistecca Slices, Php495
A personal favorite and the one I would highly recommend! This dish gives you 250g of meat served with baby potatoes, steamed rice, and gravy. They have been perfecting their bistecca slices for 10 years now, and I have to say: it’s a must-try. (It’s so good, it stays soft even after it has gotten cold!)
Salmon Teppan, Php355
The first in Pampanga, their salmon teppan is a new dish that was only added 3 weeks ago. It’s grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce that isn’t over the top. This dish is perfect for those who are looking for a light and healthy meal.
Turon Ala Mode, Php125
Still have room for dessert? This to-die-for dessert involves your favorite turon served with vanilla ice cream and lemon candy. It tastes as good as it looks and is the perfect end to any meal.
Matcha Green Tea, Php155
One of the newest additions to their menu, this matcha green tea milkshake is one of their bestsellers! We all know matcha tastes good, but this is a matcha drink you simply need to try. Trust me: I quit drinking milkshakes long ago; but when I tasted this, I was able to finish it all! (oops)
