The camalig (rice granary) was built in 1840 during the Spanish era by Don Ciriaco de Miranda, the town’s first mayor. It was later upgraded to its present form by Capitan Juan Nepomuceno, the town’s first post-colonial mayor. The Historic Camalig Restaurant is now an attraction to both locals and visitors wanting to have a glimpse of the past and taste its famous Armando’s pizza.
During our visit at the Historic Camalig Restaurant, we were able to taste some of their best-selling dishes. They served us with appetizers and their one-of-a-kind Kapampangan pizza.
Sizzling Sisig (PHP 100.00 – 195.00 depending on the serving size)
Sisig is a Filipino favorite dish which is widely available in Pampanga. The Historic Camalig Restaurant has its own version of the famous sisig. Its version is a mixture of pig’s face, liver and a lot of onions which I really liked a lot. I am actually drooling while writing this post, hahaha. Seriously, it was delicious. It’s best eaten when still hot. Don’t forget to squeeze a lemon on it to make it more sumptuous.

Deep Fried Chicken Wings
Chicken is one of my comfort foods so no wonder I liked this dish. It is chicken wings marinated in special sauce and then deep-fried. It’s crispy and it has the right amount spices in it. You can even eat it without the sauce.

Armando’s Pizza is one of the signature pizzas of the Historic Camalig Restaurant. It is one of their best-sellers and is definitely a must-try. It has a thin crust with generous amount of toppings like pepperoni, ground beef, mushroom, bacon, green capsicum and lots of cheese.
