Hapag Vicentico

April 19, 2014 Travel

If I were to list my Top 10 Restaurants, this would definitely be on the list.

I like restaurants with a nice ambiance because it adds to a memorable dining experience. Of course, the food should be good, and the service must be impeccable. That is the reason why I absolutely love Hapag Vicentico.

The Restaurant

According to its website, the restaurant was once an abandoned old residence.

I was in Cabanatuan for two days to attend a client's event. So, I had the chance to visit the restaurant three times. The entrance to the dining areas was filled with curios, which actually reminded me of the old Cafe Juanita in Pasig and Fat Michael in Makati. If I was not hungry or too filled afterward, I would have spent much time photographing every nook.

During our second visit, the restaurant had an event, but they were kind enough to set up a table for us in the garden area after our pleading.

The Food

The deconstructed Karekare is heavenly. It is so crispy, and as soon as the fat melts in my mouth, I forget that I should be dieting. I think this is a must.

The deconstructed Kare-Kare at Hapag Vicentico is a culinary delight that elevates the traditional Filipino dish to a whole new level.

In addition to the remarkable Kare-Kare, Hapag Vicentico also boasts a menu filled with other Filipino culinary delights. From regional specialties to classic favorites, the restaurant offers a diverse selection that showcases the richness and diversity of Filipino cuisine. 

They are all good and well-presented but pale in comparison to the Karekare. That Karekare is to die for.

Go visit!

Since it is summer and people are heading out to Aurora, Hapag Vicentico can be part of the itinerary. It is the perfect detour.

Hapag Vicentico (www.vicenticos.com) is located at 1077 Del Pilar Street, Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.
