Pampanga: Susie's Cuisine, The Best in Pampango Kakanin

In Pampanga, the perfect place to satisfy your palabok and kakain cravings is at Susie's Cuisine. It's a culinary institution that every Kapampangan recognize by heart.

Kakanin or rice cakes is part of our Filipino culture. From the word kanin which means rice, kakanin is made of rice or glutinous rice usually mixed with coconut milk or gata. The Philippines has a wide variety of kakanin and some are distinct to certain provinces or areas. Take puto for instance which is a very popular kakanin but different regions offer variations.


Eversince I came to Angeles City in 1997, Susie's Cuisine had been one of the places we go for a quick bite. Susie's products are often present during special occasions or gatherings like birthday parties, luncheons, and dinners.

Susie's Cuisine has been in the business since 1972. Anicia Ayson founded Susie's through the motivation of her family and close friends who were fond of her cooking. And eventually got Kapampangans loved her cooking too. Today, it is now being run by her daughter Jesusa Ayson Yabut, together with her husband Glenn Yabut.

With 12 outlets in Pampanga and Tarlac, people can now easily buy Susie's products.


Susie's is famous for its pancit luglug or palabok, mochi, and tibok tibok. A visit to the store-restaurant, however, will surprise you and get you instantly salivating of the wide array of products--there are kakanin, pancit, pasta, sweets, and native delicacies.

Pancit palabok (P50/single order, P375 and P480/bilao) is my personal fave. Pancit palabok or pancit luglug is a type of rice noodles dish. As far as ingredients are concern, it looks similar with other palabok you'll find in the market. You can see the same thick red sauce, chicharon bits or pork cracklings and egg. But what made it stand out from the rest is the taste. It's more flavorful and tastier and the noodles are perfect to the bite. Susie's Cuisine in Pampanga

Mochi (P6/pc, P240/bilao) is a Japanese-inspired snack. It is made of sticky rice with bean paste filling. It is served with sweet, thick, and creamy gata (coconut milk). Susie's Cuisine in Pampanga

Tibok-tibok or maja blanca (P20/slice, P400/bilao, P430/bilao of tibok-tibok with corn) is a delicious Filipino dessert that is also known as coconut pudding. This is one of my fave.

Susie's Cuisine at Nepo Angeles is a decent place to have your snack. The place is usually crowded, an evidence of how pinoys love kakanin. At the side, you'll see shelves for candies and preserved goodies that are great for pasalubong
