there is no indication from the storefront that this tiny space is crammed full of pilipino foodstuff. pan de sal, puto, siopao amongst other things to eat are piled high and a misstep from you or me would have caused a delicious avalanche...or some kind of tasty accident at the very least.
i recalled a childhood friend and eating pancit malabon at manila sunset with her and promptly bought a small serving of it. the noodles were thick and the sprinkling of egg yolk, shrimp, and chicharonnes were delightful, though bad i'm sure for your health...but who's keeping tabs anyways except for my doctor.
why the sad face?
i also bought a small mocha cake to share with my fam. although pretty to look at, it was extremely dry. it's like eating a cake made out of sawdust. the whole thing was quickly chucked out rather than stuffed down. too bad, so sad....i had a bad sweet tooth too.
