Funnside Ningnangan: Famed grill landmark finds home in Angeles City-A A +A
Thursday, July 19, 2012
THE BEST of Sto. Tomas town’s grilled food delights has finally invaded Angeles City with the upcoming opening of the Funnside Ningnangan in Barangay Pulung Maragul a few blocks away from Marquee Mall on July 27.
Funnside Ningnangan has been synonymous with the best grilled food that San Matias, Sto. Tomas is famous for. If Sta. Rita has its turrones de casuy and sansrival, Sasmuan its pulburon, Angeles City its sisig and Bacolor its suman and tamales, Sto. Tomas has grilled food that people from as far as Bulacan and Metro Manila would brave the long travel to Pampanga just to have a taste of.
But Funnside Ningnangan offers more with its strong line up of seafood and oriental dishes that are cooked with the fusion of Kapampangan taste in mind.
Food lovers in Metro Angeles should be thankful for the foresight of businessman Architect Jhong Naguit for bringing the famed business establishment in Angeles City. The establishment sits on a 3,200-square meter property and can accommodate large parties and events.
The long bamboo-made edifice that the Funnside Ningnangan is famous for is a wonder in itself. Made by craftsmen from Bacolor, the edifice is a fusion of Kapampangan bamboo art with the traditional “bahay kubo” architecture.
“This dining facility is bringing to Angeles City the contemporary and old Kapampangan food culture in Sto. Tomas. We hope to contribute to the culinary attractions of Angeles City,” Naguit told Sun.Star Pampanga.
Naguit said they hope to register another worthwhile attraction in Angeles City’s tourism map.
After a motorcade signaling its grand opening, customers and food lovers will be able to avail of the best grilled food in town at a 50 percent discount for lunch and dinner on the opening day.
Dining at Funnside Ningnangan is a novelty of savoring the alfresco ambiance and the food being cooked right before your very eyes. Savor the best barbeque orders marinated and cooked the Kapampangan way. Short orders of seafood, oriental dishes like tempura and steaks are also available side-by-side.
Funnside Ningnangan provides that novelty experience of dining in an eclectic ambiance in the company of friends or family.
