Ang Kamalig Restaurant introduces Ilonggo Family Fiesta Favorites

Ang Kamalig Restaurant recently launched Ilonggo Family Fiesta Favorites, its newest offering of comfort foods with interesting and flavorful twists, and steeped in local culture.

Executive Chef Miguel Treñas is the man behind these innovative dishes. Growing up in a family of foodies who love to cook, he knows perfectly well that good food is central to the DNA of an Ilonggo. The table is an integral part of every person’s life, being the place where family and friends gather to enjoy a good meal, happy conversations and make wonderful memories.

“Good food is meant to be shared especially with your loved ones, and great food along with happy memories are what we offer here at Ang Kamalig. Family and food are the two things important to an Ilonggo, and today is a celebration of that,” said Chef Miguel as welcomed guests during the launching.

We were treated to a fiesta buffet of grilled favorites and Ilonggo Heritage Food, all of which Chef Miguel had conceptualized with his team.

Chef Miguel will also be offering a Junior Ilonggo Chef school to 10 students only starting May 19. Children ages 10 to 15 are welcome to register for P3,000, which will cover the lessons, recipes and ingredients.   They will have three sessions to learn about native Ilonggo fare – Ilonggo favorite appetizers, main meals, and desserts.

Chef Miguel will be their teacher every Friday from 2pm to 4pm, and for sure, kids will look forward to eating and learning at the same time.  Ilonggo food is so unique, Chef Miguel wants to continue the tradition in teaching the basics to the kids so Ilonggo culture and traditions can continue.
