Tarlac Province is located approximately 125 kms. northeast of Metro Manila, Tarlac is the most multi-cultural of the Central Luzon provinces. A mixture of four distinct groups, the Pampangos, Ilocanos, Pangasinense and Tagalogs, share life in the province. Tarlac is best known for its fine food and vast sugar and riceplantations. That it has fine cooking to offer is due largely to the fact that it is the "Melting Pot of Central Luzon."
