John's Kitchen in Angeles, Pampanga

At the corner where you see the big sign for Timog Park Homes in Angeles, Pampanga, you will also see a street sign that says, "John's Kitchen, 400 meters".

Unfortunately, we arrived late for my niece's birthday party which was held there so we didn't get to take a picture of the restaurant in daylight. Fortunately, my in-laws saved some of the party food (which they offer as part of their catering menu, not restaurant menu). And they were really good.

I am not into roast beef (or meat) that much but I ate so much of it. I couldn't stop. And the salmon dish was something I also liked, considering I don't like salmon as a general rule. I also loved their mashed potato, even if again, I am not a fan of that! So, yeah, verdict is... I highly recommend the food there.

We were even happily agitated to be sitting beside a table of local celebrities in the persons of Claude Tayag and Raymond Gutierez (an artist and biodynamic farmer from Prado Farms, and taught us clay modeling in my Waldorf crash course). John's Kitchen is just a year old but it is becoming a favorite haunt for the locals and you need only Google it to read good reviews.

salmon dish, the fish is imported from abroad

chocolate mousse dessert, which was on the dark chocolate-side (loved it!)

peach crumble, served really hot with the best vanilla ice cream (they make their own ice cream) I have ever tasted...

The Hot Air Ballon festival is coming up, and I hope travellers will drop by John's Kitchen for great food. John (the owner and chef) worked in Dubai but his menu is more greatly influenced by his training in Australia.

John's Kitchen is open from Mon - Sun: 17:30 - 23:00 and generally welcomes events/parties till 6 PM (so birthday parties are usually held between 3-6 PM). Like I said, they also cater so keep them in mind for corporate or family functions to be held in Angeles (after all, it's just a kilometer away from Clark).
