Located at Uptown Center in Quezon City, Pinac offers scrumptious family style Kapampangan Cuisine. Candaba, Pampanga is an area famous for its hearty and tasty comfort food and Pinac proudly represents that. Pinac’s menu was inspired by a long family history cooking traditional Candaba style food. The heirloom recipes were passed down from grandmother to mother, and then to daughter. These recipes were used to create the selections at Pinac.
One feels right at home inside Pinac. The ambiance is calm and relaxing with an interior modeled after a traditional heritage house.
There are plenty of hearty selections that reflect this level of passion for food, like Pinac’s Crispy Pata, fork-tender melt-in-your mouth pork covered with skin crispy fried to perfection.
While the Oxtail Kare Kare is a delicious staple, try instead their Seafood Kare Kare – a peanut and roasted rice stew that takes a lighter almost Thai-curry flavour when served with fish and seafood. With such an abundance of rich food on the menu Pinac also offers a selection of lighter choices like salads with ingredients delivered fresh from Candaba.
The Ensaladang Pako with Fried Itik Floss is a fern salad served stacked high with cucumbers, tomatoes, green mango, red onion and salted egg. A large ball of duck floss sits on top, and an especially tasty vinaigrette made of chili, garlic, and red cane vinegar comes on the side. This is a delicious salad of classic elements, retranslated and plated in an artistic and modern way.
A few items on the menu put a fusion twist on family heirloom recipes. Beef Kaldereta (Caldereta) and Eggplant Parmigiana layers the quintessential Filipino beef stew between cheesy eggplant parmigiana into a dish that’s at once traditional and innovative.
Save room in your tummy because a hearty Kapampangan dinner is best finished with Pinac’s warm fondue of coconut milk and muscovado sugar. Dip skewers of fresh watermelon, mango, banana, and glutinous rice cakes into the sweet creamy sauce for a perfect ending to your meals.
A dinner at Pinac leaves a feeling like one had an amazing meal at a good friend’s home. With portions perfect for sharing, Pinac is perfect for loved ones to enjoy the best of Kapampangan Cuisine.
