The Eng Bee Tin Hopia: Binondo Food Tour 1

On my first Binondo Food Tour (Yes! this is only my first and it will definitely not be my last), our first stop is the Eng Bee Tin shop on the Quintin Paredes Street. It was the first shop that is very familiar and famous to everyone going to Binondo or doing a Binondo Food Tour.

The famous Eng Bee Tin Hopia. Locally known and sought out when ever in Binondo. No tourist goes home without a pack.

Eng Bee Tin started around 1912, with a simple stall in the heart of Ongpin, Manila. The stall became well known for its traditional Chinese delicacies, such as hopia, tikoy and glutinous balls. They had mastered the art of producing world- class Oriental delicacies.

buying a dozen packs as pasalubong

Usually pasalubong buying is on the end of the tour, but my friends started it on the first spot we came across. They bought at least 4 pack of each variety of the famous Hopia and other Eng Bee Tin products.

Different variety of Eng Bee Tin Hopia

Eng Bee Tin have a large of variety of their famous hopia. They also have other Eng Bee Tin delicacies such as tikoy, tikoy rolls, mooncake, hopia dice, and other pastries.

I enjoyed my Hopia that I got for free. My only regret is that I should have joined them in buying in bulk. After consuming the 2 piece/pack hopia, I was craving for more.

Next time I will surely get more, and there will surely be a next time.
