If you can not EAT OUT, go for "TAKE-OUT" or delivery. This is the NOW NORMAL to protect our families during the pandemic. So whenever we go out for groceries, we usually drop-by at our favorite food shops.
If we crave for Kapampangan specialties, Susie's Cuisine near ABS-CBN compound at T. Morato, QC is the place we visit. My favorite, of course, is the "tidtad" or pork dinuguan with puto. Their dinuguan has a balance in sour taste and pork ingredients - just the right amount of "taba" and "laman" and "asim."

|Leche Flan of Susie's is Julia's favorite dessert.|
|Tibok-tibok - a Kapampangan dessert made from Carabao's milk with latik is another favorite dessert from Susie's. I believe only Susie's sell tibok-tibok.|
|Whenever we visit UP for our walking exercise, our final stop-over for take-out is Snack Shack at the EC Building besides the UP Bahay ng Alumni. Snack Shack serves freshly grilled burgers and fries. Their serving is very generous, I usually eat only half and save the other half later. I rate their burgers for taste, quality and value for money as 5 stars better than the imported and expensive burgers like the one with almost the same name.|
|Along T. Morato is one of the best Takoyaki in the city - Octoboy. Now during the pandemic, their takoyaki is on sale at Buy One Take One at about P150.00 +. The taste and the size are similar to the original takoyaki in Japan. Read a related blog on takoyaki.|
