We accidentally discovered HO-LAND CHINESE DELICACIES after eating at Sincerity Restaurant.We were to get a tricycle to Te Ya Kong Temple that time when I saw the sign.HO-LAND, ang cute ng name ayt? Ho of course is a Chinese surname common in the Philippines.So when locals hear the name Ho, they automatically think it's Chinese.And there's Holland in Europe.To come up with a brand name Ho-Land is therefore brilliant.
But this bakery is not just about a catchy trademark,they have one of the best hopia and other Chinese delicacies in Binondo.
HO-LAND CHINESE DELICACIES is a family owned store known for its Hopia Mongo (Wax Gourd Cake).
I was surprised to find out though that they have an assortment of Hopia flavors I haven't heard of before.At meron palang Hopia Pineapple? And what about Hopia Ube-Macapuno Lite or Hopia Pandan-Macapuno? They come in different shapes and cool packaging.
These Hopias kept my merienda sessions delictable for the days that followed.I love the pineapple hopia and the Hopia Ube-Langka.Yum Yum.
Hopia Mongo Corn Oil
Hopia Mongo Lite
Hopia Ube Corn Oil
Hopia Ube-Macapuno Lite
The LIST is very long as it includes not just the 14 Hopia variants I listed above, they also have Tikoy,Mooncakes,White Ampao,Monay,empanada, Glutinous Rice Peanut Bal, and yes, even Malaysian Cake.I noticed an assortment of snacks on the shelf.
