We had an adventure food trip up North in San Fernando, Pampanga; Everybody's Cafe is one of the most long lived and famous food places here and is "the home of authentic Kapampangan cuisine"
They serve "turo-turo" or carinderia style and offers smacked of down-home cooking and also those of classified as bizarre/ exotic foods.
I tasted an insect for the first time in my life; Camaro or deep fried mole cricket, it reminds me as one of the fear factor type of food, looks a bit gross but it tasted just like "ukoy" or fried small shrimps, was crunchy and tasty- Not bad at all.
Betute (stuffed frog) - Stuffed with ground pork and was deep fried, it was cute to look at or maybe not :p - according to them it taste like chicken with meatballs, uhmm I didn't really tried this one..
Frog legs - deep fried frog legs- I tasted it a little portion few times already, but I can’t seem to finish one leg since I'm really grossed out imagining the warts and the actual frog... but sure it tasted like chicken.
Sinigang na ulang - Ulang is a fresh water shrimp, it looks and taste like prawn only it has bigger head and rounder body plus it has claws.
Our table was filled with variety of goodies, not to mention their morcon -tender cuts of pork with marbled fat smothered with rich sauce made from oven drippings (picture is beside the ulang, the orangey one); the pork sisig which was sizzled with liver pate and their chicharon bulaklak or deep-fried pork intestines...
Price Range- P60-250/meal
My verdict: Everybody's cafe is worth a trip especially when you feel a little adventurous with your meal.
