Right before Christmas, my family decided to go to Clark for an overnight stay at Fontana Leisure Park. My friend, who is a member there, offered to book me a discounted stay in a 2-bedroom villa. The rate was tempting enough so we jumped at the chance.
On top of my to-do list for the trip was to eat sisig at Aling Lucing’s. Sisig is a Kapampangan dish, said to originate in the areas outside Clark Airbase when the Americans were still there. And Aling Lucing is touted as the “Original Sisig Queen”. I just gotta try her sisig!
Day 1. We arrived in Angeles City and decided to check in at Fontana right after “buying” stuff we need (a.k.a. duty-free shopping, hehe). The kids (big and small alike) were excited to try out the water park at Fontana so… Okay, my plan to lunch at Aling Lucing’s was postponed to dinner.
Dinner time, yes we headed out of Clark! I told hubby we should look for Aling Lucing’s. But we asked the wrong person for directions (the guard at the Clark gate told us to take a right and we’d find a lot of places to eat there) so we ended up getting lost in the red light district. LOL
To cut the story short, we had Jollibee for dinner. Bummer. Hubs promised we’d look for Aling Lucing the next day.
Day 2. We went to Clark Expo, where Nayong Pilipino is now (while waiting for the real one do be finished daw). We decided to leave Clark Expo early so we can resume our hunt for Aling Lucing by the riles. After several stops to ask, and a few wrong turns, we finally found the riles!
Alas, it was the day before Christmas, and Aling Lucing must have decided to take a break. 🙁
Sisig is such a fatty dish, one might need a fat burner supplement after bingeing on it. 😛
