Mexican Food and a Deli

After the wonderful trek to Pinatubo's crater, we all felt drained. Still, we had enough energy to go to Mabalacat, Pampanga to satisfy our appetites. Since this was Ruy's turf, he took us to their favorite Mexican restaurant in the area: Zapatta's. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Oh, where's our food???
Mayan soup for starters. It tasted like refried beans made into soup. Not bad at all.

Their combo platter: refried beans, Mexican rice, chicken enchiladas, and chili con carne. All good with an ice cold bottle of beer! Needless to say, I had to take some home. I was so full I felt that I needed lipozene at the end of the meal!

That didn't stop me from getting some key lime pie ala mode. I had never had this before, but that Dexter episode where he kept looking for the best key lime pie was stuck in my head. I loved the pie!

Zapatta's is not cheap but not pricey either. I would readily go back there and have some margaritas. I do not know the exact address, but just go to Mabalacat, to the area they call the Perimeter. That's where all the white people and bars are at. :-s

Last stop: Bretto's. It's this deli that beats the one we have here in Eastwood. I just had to stock up on some roast beef, pastrami and cheese. All that for half the price I usually pay!

It was a good end to a wonderful day. :)
