If you are looking for a restaurant that serves the best of Kapampangan cuisine and want an authentic Filipino dining experience, then Apag Marangle (Dining in the Farm) is definitely the place to go.
Apag Marangle was established in 2008 by two long-time friends and partners Manuela Cherry Pasion-Tan and Mark Edmon C. Navarro who both have passion for food and are both lovers of nature and tradition.
Apag Marangle’s concept is to give their customers an unforgettable dining experience by offering authentic Kapampangan dishes in a farm setting.
Their main branch is in Olongapo-Gapan Road, Bacolor, Pampanga which is situated literally in the middle of a farm. We visited their branch in Marquee Mall, Angeles City which is just a few kilometres away from the Clark Freeport Zone. Much to our surprise, stepping inside Apag Marangle feels like we are not inside the mall.
True to its concept, Apag Marangle Marquee Mall is designed like a native bahay kubo which will make you feel like you’re eating in a farm. Local Kapampangan songs by Andy Alviz and ArtiSta. Rita (Filipino musicians promoting traditional music of Pampanga) playing on the background adds to the authenticity of the restaurant. One can’t help but be transported on a cultural journey upon entering the place. These features of the restaurant coincide with the advocacy of the owners—to promote cultural preservation and environmental causes through handicrafts and music.
