A New Year's Message from Historic Camalig Restaurant (The Home of Armando's Pizza: "Ang Pambansang Pizza")

When a little-known homegrown backyard Kapampangan pizza suddenly makes the news--not just once, but over and over again--people cannot help but ask: "So what's the secret to your success?"

If by success one means our seemingly enduring levity and longevity, the short answer is, of course, luck.

Yes, we got lucky . . . With Philippine Daily Inquirer. With The Philippine Star. With Manila Standard Today. With Mod Magazine. With Smile Magazine. With Tiger Magazine. With The Lonely Planet Magazine. With Ivan About Town. With Awesome Planet. With Click The City. With Open Rice. With eK! With GMA-7. With ABS-CBN 2. With TV5. With RPN-9. With ANC. With Studio 23. With QTV-11. With Executive Class. With Gourmet Everyday. With Sweet Life. With Unang Hirit. With Umagang Kay Ganda, Kay Susan Tayo, Balikbayan, Tara Let's Eat, Trip Na Trip, Swak Na Swak--to name a slew.

But there's an even shorter answer: You.

Because it is, after all, you who found us, you who passed the good word around about us, and you who got us where we are right now--wherever in Doy's happy kitchen that is.

And while we can never hope to be the number 1 bestselling pizza in the whole wide universe (because we can't really be everypizza to everyone), we're just as glad to be the number 1 bestselling pizza in your heart and in your home (naks!).

And so: Dakal pung salamat and here's wishing all you proud and loyal pinoy pizza-loving fans and friends a pizzabulously peaceful and prosperous new year!

Two fine TV shows on two fine TV channels will each feature your favorite Armando's Pizza. And it's all happening, by some cosmic coincidence, this Tuesday, May 4, 2010!
For appetizer, catch RPN-9's Newswatch at 5:30PM and stay tuned for its segment "Teen Watch," where host Janeena Chan unravels the secret pleasures of "Ang Pambansang Pizza" in a one-on-one interview with Armando's head honcho Marc Nepomuceno on the subject of Pizza & Patriotism 101.
For main course, switch over to QTV-11 for the food-tripping show "Tara! Let's Eat!" and join the irrepressible guest host and award-winning celebrity comic and kabalen Nanette Inventor as she locks in on Historic Camalig Restaurant and loads up on Pampanga's proudest homegrown pizza creation--- you guess it right--- Armando's Pizza: "Ang Pambansang Pizza."
In between showtimes, how about calling us up and having your favorite Armando's delivered to your doorsteps?
Incidentally, did we mention that Tuesday, May 4, is also Pizza Blitza night--- that fun-filled pizza speed-eating contest we host here at Camalig every year (which promptly starts at 7PM)?
So, share in the pride and share the news: 2 TV shows. 2 channels. 1 Armando's Pizza. All on Tuesday!
To all our friends and patrons, manyampukaking salamat keko ngan! You just made a TV star out of a pizza.
