Unfortunately, everything must come to an end haha. Today, I decided to put both Ho-Land Bakery and Eng Bee Tin in one post which will also serve as my final entry for my Binondo series. A Binondo Trip will not be completed without buying for Pasalubong (is the Filipino tradition of travellers bringing gifts from their destination to people back home.). Aside from the Lucky Charms, Chinese Delicacies are one of the most common things you can buy from Binondo and Ho-land Bakery and Eng Bee Tin have high reputation when it comes to their yummy delicacies!20160207_165636tHo-land Hopia and Bakery is situated in 551 E.T. Yuchengco St. cor. Carvajal (a few blocks away from Sincerity Restaurant ). They also have branches in Quezon City, CM Recto, Gilmore St and Congresional Ave.20160207_165710tHo-land probably stands for Hopia Land which has been around since 1960s! Ho-land, for many hopia lovers, remains the standard for these Chinese baked goodies. Upon doing a research, I also learned that HOPIA derives from two Chinese Words, HO means Good while PIA means Cake or Pastry. 20160207_165903tAside From Hopia, Ho-Land also caters other products like Tikoy, Prosperity Cakes and these Koi-Fishes (i don’t know what exactly these Koi-Fishes shaped items are but I find them so cute). I also bought Fortune Cookies for the first time and I also saw a lot of Chinese herbs and spices too)111111111Another famous shop in Binondo is the Eng Bee Tin which is also known for their yummy Chinese Delicacies most especially their Ube-Flavored Hopia and Tikoy. In fact, they established a bigger shop known as MR Ube that caters their best selling hopia and tikoy. 20160207_170718tMr. Chua Chiu Hong established Eng Bee Tin in a simple stall in the heart of Ongpin, Manila. Since then, the business grew and has become a popular destination in Binondo!20160207_170724tBecause of its popularity, you are often being welcomed by a huge and long queue of people! It is often being featured in many tv shows too!1545802_10202273471111493_569876460_ntThey also have this Giant Tikoy on display every Chinese New Year!15484415712_0f5be886f4_otSo there, Our Binondo trip is finally (whew…) over!
