When the barkada is getting together (especially men) eating out will come to mind. And a barkada eat out will be more fun if it is an eat all you can buffet. When Filipino buffet is in mind, everyone knows Cabalen is one of the best eat-all-you can buffet around.
Cabalen has been in the restaurant business for 28 years and have ever since serving the most delicious meals and dessert any Filipino would do anything for. The Cabalen restaurant started in San Fernando Pampanga, in 1974, selling specialty foods. The restaurant is called “Ituro mo, iluluto” and was a hit with the local patrons. The first eat-all-you-can buffet was built in 1986 at West Triangle, Quezon City and there started many branches that serve sumtuous foods, eat-all-you-can style.
The taste and quality of the food cooked by the Cabalen chefs have kept patrons coming back for more and through the years, Cabalen has had hundreds of thousands of hungry patrons who regularly eat at the food chain.
