You can try out all the different delicacies!
Malabon has always been known for its delicacies made by people who dedicated their time, some even for as long as years of their life, to have perfected these food. There is, of course, the most popular of them all, the pancit Malabon. For those who aren't familiar with what the city has to offer beyond the orange noodle dish, proud Malabon resident Tita Baby Buenaventura has a "Malabon In a Box," a curation of the best delicacies you can find in the city placed in just one box!
What's inside the Malabon In A Box?
Pancit Malabon from Mama Belen's Kitchenette
It goes without saying that the Malabon In A Box includes the flavorful Pancit Malabon from Mama Belen's Kitchenette. Its signature orange sauce coats the rice noodles and tops it with crunchy garlic, ground pork, cracklings, eggs, pechay Baguio, ox tongue, and shrimp to give it varying textures and flavors in each bite.
Yema Palitaw from Josephine's Pansit Malabon 1874
This also includes the sweet Yema Palitaw from Josephine's Pansit Malabon 1874. These are bite-sized pillows of sticky rice that when you take a bite of it, a sweet custard explodes in the mouth leaving the good kind of sticky mess on your hands.
You can eat it on its own but the Yema Palitaw does come with a special dip of grated coconut, sugar, and sesame seeds to give it more bite, sweetness, and nuttiness in each bite.
Mamon Tostado from R. B. Gregorio Bread House
If you love the sweet kind of mamon, you will definitely love R.B. Gregorio Bread House's Mamon Tostado. This is a no-fuss snack that's sweet, crunchy, buttery, and sugary.
Kakanin from Original Dolor's
Kakanin is also a very popular delicacy in Malabon City which is no wonder why the Malabon In A Box has Original Dolor's, hands-down the most famous kakanin in the city. This curated box has bite-sized slices of Original Dolor's bestselling sapin-sapin, kalamay ube, kalamay mais, kalamay kutsinta, kamoteng kahoy, and biko that all pair perfectly with coffee or tea.
Puto from Hazel's Puto
If you want something to pair with your pancit Malabon, the Malabon in a Box includes a huge piece of puto from Hazel's Puto! Hazel's Puto isn't just your plain puto, theirs is special as it's topped with cheese and salted egg to give it an addicting saltiness.
The Malabon in a Box also comes with a piece of puto pao that has a savory pork asado filling, this is another Hazel's Puto bestseller you should try!
Broas from Betsy's Cake Center
Broas isn't usually soft so don't be surprised by Betsy's Cake Center's uber soft, soft-as-clouds broas! Another thing that's unique about their version of broas is that's it's sweeter too because of the special cream filling.
Valencia Triangulo from Balencia Triangulo
There are so many hacks to make turon fancier than how it's usually sold in the streets and Balencia's Triangulo is one of those that specialize in it! The Valencia Triangulo is a triangular turon stuffed with banana, langka, pinipig, and then deep-fried until the wrapper is crunchy, golden brown, and glistening from the melted sugar coating.
Quekiam from Upeng's Original Quekiam
Upeng's Original Quekiam might just be one the best hidden gems that you can find in Malabon! The store is known for its Chinese-style kikiam that has a sausage-like mixture made of ground pork and shredded turnips wrapped in a bean curd sheet.
This Chinese-style kikiam is visibly and tastes a lot meatier than the kikiam you can usually find in streetside stalls, which means you can pair it with rice. It would be more appetizing if you pair it with a sweet and spicy sauce!
Whatever fried ulam you have on the dining table-be it fried chicken, fried fish, pork chop, you will definitely want to pair it with this bottled relish. The tanginess of this atchara isn't overwhelming so you can add as much as you need.
Halo-Halo from Ellets Sweet
There's no insulated container for this halo-halo inside the Malabon in a Box. Ellets Sweet's Special Halo-Halo puts all the delicious halo-halo sahog in one bottle so you can bring it out whenever you're craving the shaved ice dessert. Just add milk and ice and you're good to go!
