Chef Howard Dizon

Chef Howard’s delicious Kare-Kareng Baka, Palabok, Asadong Matuta, and the like have become a staple for special occasions and celebrations, catering for grand events across the country. Through this, Chef Howard brings Kapampangan fare beyond the region.

Chef Cherry Pasion-Tan and Chef Mark Navarro

Aptly named Apag Marangle, Chefs Cherry and Mark’s brainchild adopts a bahay-kubo concept to create the ambience of dining in a farm. Staying on brand, the restaurant serves authentic fare like Chili Garlic Frog and Stir-Fried Crickets, and favorites that include Humba and Tidtad.
