Filipino Feast at Bale DutungAngeles City, Phillipines

If you’re a fan of Anthony Bourdain you may have already heard about Bale Dutung (the name means 'house of wood'), a family-run restaurant in Angeles City where chef Claude Tayag puts a contemporary spin on traditional Filipino dishes.

There’s a choice of set menus, including one inspired by Bourdain’s visit, serving up dishes like fiddlehead fern salad, lechon (roasted suckling pig) tortilla and sushi of crab fat and catfish. Don’t eat a thing before you get there – you’ll be enjoying about 10 courses – and ensure you book ahead.

Eat up! You can enjoy a filling set menu for around US$36.
