Where can your 100 PHP bill take you? A Happy Meal, maybe? A short trip to the school canteen, perhaps? What if I tell you that you can actually get good food, great music and awesome people with that purple paper bill? Believe it or not, you actually can at Comos! 😉
Comos will be the best place to satiate your cravings! This is the biggest food park in Pampanga, proudly showcasing 70, yep, you read it right, 70 amazing food stalls that will never make you run out of options. Comos is at Villa Filipina, Brgy. San Juan, San Fernando, Pampanga and it opens from 5 PM till 12:30 AM. Just like their online pages to know about their promotions or schedule. Follow these lights to get to Comos!
Fred, my two sibs and I went to Comos last Monday, May 1, Labor Day.
While on our way…
Catcat: Ate, I want Carbonara. Can we eat that?
Me: Sure, if it is available.
Catcat: How about cake?! I want caaaaake!
Me: We are going to a food park, not a cafe so let’s see what we can get sweetie.
We arrived around 6 to 6:30 so the place is almost full and we went around to look for a place to stay. Tents and blankets with mini pillows and tables were strewn at some areas of the open field. There are tables and chairs available as well. People are slowly flocking the place. Ha! We found a gazebo right next to Tazza Uno.
Just look at this amazing crowd! 😎
Catcat and I immediately went around the food park. I don’t want to keep her hopes up initially and make her sad afterwards so I am actually praying that out of the 70 stalls, at least one of them offers a freaking pasta or cake. lol Comos offers rows and rows of barbecue stalls, options for Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, native kapampangan cuisines, burger stops, pizza stalls, local streetfood, lemonade and cooler stands, coffee and smoothies stalls, beverages and liquor stands and thank God it existed, a stall for sweets and pasta! We tried a couple of the food available!
Burjer’s diner, is pretty much being swarmed by people because of their very uniquely colored buns! There is black, green, yellow, orange, redish–purple and the regular burger bun. The flavor varies as well. We tried the green one, Bacony Burj! This one comes with bacon and barbecue sauce. Pretty cool! It was only for 140 pHp and there is an option for additional patties as well. Must try!
Catcat is already staring at Pasta Overload. She seriously wants it. 😂 We tried their Carbonara. It was less than 120 pHp but the pasta and sauce was good and it even came with a garlic toasted bread. Good food for a very low price! 🤔
We then saw a stand for Japanese food, Itadakimasu. Catcat was already pointing at the Corn Dogs. They were funny looking corn dog bites with eyes. Kids will surely love it! However, we were not able to try it since it was not available at that time.
Me: What is that?
Catcat: I don’t know, but they have eyeeeesss! (freaky grin)
Me: hhhhmmm, so being freaky runs in the family. hahahah 😂😂😂
Too bad, but there is always a next time. I ended up ordering their Filipino themed maki rolls, Japinoy. They used smoked fish, mango and cucumber for this roll and it is lightly sprinkled with toasted garlic bits on top. Very pinoy! I enjoyed this one. Try it too!
Barbecue is something that you should not miss! There are loads of options for this one. I randomly picked a Barbecue stall and ordered 3 pork bbqs. It was only for 35 pHp per stick, very affordable! You can get rice servings as well if you want too!
Have you seen a local bibingka that went a la mode?
Try it at Comos! 😁
For the drinks, there are loads of options! We tried Thirsty Buddha and Tazza Uno. I like the fact that I see how fresh and cleanly our drinks were made. We tried Thirsty Buddha’s Hong Kong style lemon iced tea and it was very refreshing! Lemon was actually squeezed in front of us so freshness guaranteed!
Next was Tazza Uno. This one is familiar to me since they also have a stall at Moderno Food Park which I blogged about months ago. I met Sir Dexter who is one of the main foundafions of Tazza Uno’s stalls. I ordered an Oreo smoothie and I was very much delighted to receive an additional complimentary smoothie from Tazza Uno as well! Oreo smoothie can come with or without a shot of coffee so it is good for all ages! I definitely appreciated the generosity. To all my readers, please try Tazza Uno! They offer smoothies, coffee and frappes. They have stalls at Moderno Food Park and Hungry Yard in Tarlac! More power to you guys!
I noticed this Lemonade stall that offers a huge pail-like pitcher which is good for sharing. Cute and funny straws were hanging at the rim and lights goes in and out at the bottom. It was good for 250 pHp. I wanted to try it but I glanced at Catcat then back to the pitcher, back and forth for like multiple times.I had a thought…
Me: Nope, I am sure she would love to blow bubbles into that thing just like how much I wanted to do so. hahahaha. It is doomed to happen. 😂😂😂
Excuse me about the gross thought. Lol
It looks fun so maybe you can try it with your friends when you come over at Comos!

Aside from the fact that it is the biggest food park in Pampanga, what will be the reason why you would want to visit Comos? It is the live performance every single night! Not all food parks offer this type of combo.
Comos is able to give off that Coachella vibe. What with all the local bands that they invite every single night plus their fire dancing performance! We were able to enjoy music from two bands namely, Slowdown and Southburger and Cheese. Slowdown is an all-boy acoustic group who did not actually “slowed down” with their awesome rap performace of great OPM hits like Hinahanap Kita, Bagsakan and many more! They were funny as well since they throw off jokes in between songs. Totally cool so I enjoyed it!
Southburger and Cheese is quite interesting as well. They are also an acoustic group which performed hits from The Beatles down to Brownman Revival. They also did an impressive job by granting song requests from the audience just like one of my requested songs which is “Lintik” a few minutes after receiving my piece of paper. Well done! You will notice that their percussion player uses djembe instead of a beat box or drum set. Djembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands which originally came from West Africa. As a drum player myself, I find it cool that he was able to maximize it with their performances. Kudos to that! Good job to Comos as well by supporting local talents and giving them the breaks that they deserve! Keep it up! 🤗
We were entertained by their firedancers as well! It was so wonderful to see them dancing with fire! You don’t have to go that far now to witness one, Boracay can wait. 😉 They used different props and did stunts to wow the crowd.
They even invited some of the spectators to sit on the ground while they made the fire sling thingy go around in a halo like motion. I joined, obviously, and I became an angel for once! Or maybe not. 😂lol It was so freaking amaaaaazzzinnng! That was some serious fire bending! #avatar 😎 hahah You better don’t miss these fun events!
There is also an activity area for kids. Well the whole place is quite safe but there is an area for certain games and a place where you can release stress. It is called Hugot Bes?. It is like the famous “Takshapo Wall” where in you can throw plates, glasses, etc to a part of the wall which corresponds to the main cause of your stress. Sounds fun! 😂
I like the fact that Comos serves very affordable food which starts from 15 pHp and up. Your 100 PHP will surely go a long way! You can bring your family, friends, bf/gf and have a good time! Just make sure to come early since the whole place is easily full!
Grab your sneakers and visit Comos as soon as you can! Food, music, fire, yes, fire in a cool way, hahah awaits you! 😂😎
