NEW RESTO ALERT: Chef Laudico’s Feasts

words and photos by: Vance Madrid of Ang Takaw Ko blog. 
When celebrity power chefs Rolando Laudico and Jacqui Laudico thought of opening up restaurant in Pampanga, well meaning friends discouraged them to do so. It is common knowledge that Kapampangans are known to be the best cooks in the country as Pampanga is the food capital of the Philippines. You can contest the other claims, but even the country’s top chefs said so. Pampanga has a whole cornucopia of culinary delights, from colonial to folk to exotic. This gift can be traced back to their access to the friar’s kitchen, their land’s plentiful harvests and perhaps all the calamities they’ve been through have taught them to improvise. So one may wonder why the Laudico’s decided to open their latest restaurant called Chef Laudico’s Feast at SM City Clark. “We do not choose the place. It’s the place that chooses us,” explains Chef Lau.
