Flavors of Pampanga: Go for a Winning Pair at Malt Bar

A winning hand at the gaming tables of Widus Hotel & Casino is more than enough reason to celebrate. And you can keep the winning streak going with a quick meal without leaving the casino... 

The Malt Bar, located inside the hotel's casino, offers quick meals that's big on flavor. Real food with real flavors served fast to get you back at the gaming tables for another run. Start your quick break with the Malt Bar's refreshing Sunrise, a non-alcoholic blend of lemonade and cucumber. Pair it with a limitless number of winning combinations... the Oriental Chicken Wings. Crisp wings with a sweet glaze, a light meal that's great with another round of the Malt Bar's refreshing Sunrise.

Or maybe some Crispy Calamari, deep-fried breaded squid rings with a duo of creamy and spicy dips.

Executive Chef Johnny Rodriguez, who hails from Mexico, also shares classic Mexican favorites, including the Chicken Quesadillas...

...and Fish Tacos. Convenient meals packed with traditional favors that's just perfect for the gaming tables.

Executive Chef then combines and transforms the local pork sisig to create his own take with a Mexican spin, the Sisig Tacos. Fusion works in this dish. Familiar yet refreshingly different, you'll go for seconds and another round of beer.

The Malt Bar also offers a wide range of Korean dishes. If you're really hungry, go for some comforting Korean soup, like the traditional Galbitang (L), a beef short rib soup in a light broth, or the fiery Gochujang (R), a chili pepper paste soup with a spicy kick. 

Executive Chef Johnny Rodriguez also offers a variety of modern Asian flavors, like his Asian Spring Rolls, a full meal in itself served with fried rice...

... and the Sweet & Sour Pork, also served with fried rice. There's a whole variety of flavors at Malt Bar, and if you're looking for a particular dish, I'm pretty sure the staff can whip up something for you. At Malt bar, you always win. Note however that since Malt Bar is located inside the hotel's casino, no cameras, DSLRs, iPads, or compact cameras are allowed at the premises.
