A few weeks ago, I visited Abe's Farm in Magalang Pampanga. It was a side trip arising from work. I initially thought that the farm is limited for dining. Turns out, the farm is a resort. It has villas and spa services, perfect for a short weekend getaway. I don't have photos of the villas but each room was consistent with the classic Filipino theme. Old wood, white linens and locally produced decors can be found on each room. The surroundings are complemented with the lush view of the gardens around. The place is located a little far from the highway, so one can surely experience tranquility and relaxation.
We spent most of our time inside the restaurant. (Check out the 7th photo onwards.) As observed, the place is filled with everything wood. We ordered a few of their best sellers, Sinigang sa Bayabas, Sisig, Binukadkad na Tilapia, Kare Kare and the popular dessert, Sikreto ni Maria (basically vanilla ice cream with suman and fresh mangoes). Food was good, although I have to say... a little expensive.
After dining, one can surely enjoy the relaxing environment of the farm. The place is surely a haven for photographers especially for those who love the classic Filipino vibe of provinces. If you are heading to the North, (Pampanga or Baguio), I would suggest that a side trip in Abe's Farm in your itinerary. Most especially if you have balikbayan or friends from abroad. Abe's Farm is a showcase of everything Filipino.
