Hugot Café Pampanga: Where all sawi are wagi

Saturday, May 20, 2017

SUMMER is almost gone and the rainy season is slowly creeping in. And what better way to welcome the mellow weather and cold days than a visit at Hugot Café Pampanga?

Situated at the heart of Angeles City, Hugot Café Pampanga is a unique hangout spot where you can “hugot all you want,” while indulging in its guilt-free and not to mention, budget-friendly offerings.

Diners are also entertained by servers who shout out hugot lines and are encouraged to express and write their feelings on the café’s interactive #HugotWall.

It was only November last year when Hugot Café Pampanga, a Tondo-born venture, branched out its 9th branch in Angeles City.

According to its owner/franchisee Rolm Pamintuan, he decided to open up a branch in Pampanga to offer something different for his kababayans in the province.

“I believe our cabalens also have their own hugots and sentiments, so I thought, why not bring it here in Pampanga? I find the concept very creative and out of the box, with its sawi-inspired theme—so I asked the owner, who also happens to be my close friend, if I could franchise,” he tells.

Pamintuan added that the he also saw the viability of putting up a café in Diamond Subdivision because of its proximity to schools and universities.

“Our target is actually the students or the millennials, because they are the ones who are fond of making hugot and are always hanging out in coffee shops. We matched the price of our menu to their budget,” he explains.

Hugot-filled menu

Eat—or rather, drink—your feelings over some Walang Tayo, a cookies and cream flavored milkshake, or Pa-Fall, a sweet coffee crumble milkshake.

If iced drinks are not your thing, then go for the Kapeng Matapang, Kaya kang Ipaglaban—Hugot Café’s special house coffee. Another best-seller is its very own Matcha Green Tea, the Matchadong Nasaktan available in hot or cold.

For the appetizers, don’t be embarrassed, no one will judge you for wanting the Single corndog, Binesfriend cheese fries, and Loner waffles.

You can also order the Mag-isang Umiibig pasta or Umaasa at Pinaasa sizzling Sisig if that’s how you or your tummy feel.

Already found your special someone? Then, why not try the My Forever rice meals like Liempo with rice, Porkchop with rice, Burger Steak Double Patty, or Sausage with Fries or rice.

Hugot Café also serves delectable pizzas sure to sweep your sorrow and hunger away. Choose from Demanding Hawaiian Pizza, Hoping Beef and Cheese Pizza, and Heartbroken Pepperoni Pizza.

Furthermore, Pamintuan announced that that the café recently launched its newest rainy season promo, Unlimited Brewed Coffee for only P130. Hugot Café’s Barkada Meal promo is also on-going. For only P700, you and your barkada can avail of drinks, LDR Nachos, and Binesfriend fries good for five persons.
