The Northern Food Festival on October 16, 17 and 18 will be happening at MarQuee Mall!
MarQuee Mall

Big Bite on its third year, is having a “Sisig Festival” where cooking demos, culinary cook-offs, and live entertainment will happen. Thanks to the partnership of Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Tourism, Angeles City Tourism Office, Lifestyle Network and North Luzon Expressway.

Sisig is the quintessential Kapampangan dish, traditionally made of pork parts, mixed with spices, served on a sizzling plate with a side of calamansi and chili peppers. Northern regions take part in the celebration by cooking their own version of sisig such as the bangus sisig from Pangasinan and dinakdakan from Ilocos.

The gastronomic feast will feature over 100 food merchants from Region I,II, III and the Cordillera Administrative Region with regional delights from condiments, spices to coffee and jams to local favorites such as the Ilocos empanada, bagnet, pastillas and longganisa.

Boosting tourism in the North, Big Bite reinforces the city’s growing reputation as the culinary capital of the Philippines and is part of Angeles City’s Fiestang Kuliat, a month-long fiesta celebration in the city.

  1. I do love Sisig but I'm not aware that it is a Kapampangan dish.... My mom used to cook her own Sisig but I don't know the difference compare to the authentic Kapampangan style.. this must be a great food event

  2. It's happening this weekend already. I'm sure people would be treated well with great food here.

  3. wow sisig festival, I love sisig..we tried doing our own sisig last weekend and it was fun :)

  4. Culinary demos and cooking contest have gathers enough promotion for the place. Each mall in the Philippines must organize a culinary event each month to bring awareness to the mall goers.

  5. Yumyumyum Pampanga delicacies are the best!

  6. I've seen some photos from Big Bite it all made me want to go there!
