PORAC is popular,
or perhaps notorious,
as the hometown of Lito Lapid,

the Pampanga Quarries,

and the tropical resort known as PORACAY!!!

But just last week,, I discovered something
that should make Porac popular
for all the right reasons;

these Homemade Treasures certainly
rank as some of the best,
and some may say...

The Best Ensaymada in Pampanga!!!

Baked strictly following instructions from an Heirloom Recipe,
these spectacular ensaymadas are baked by Chona Ayson

from a recipe that her grandmother,
Amparo Aguas viuda de Mercado,
mastered back in the 1930s,

I grew up enjoying the classic Hizon's Bakeshop
and our late Apo Cion's Home Baked Ensaymadas.

I don't suffer foolish mediocre ensaymadas gladly.

So when I say I'm impressed by an ensaymada,
that means its passed my absurdly high standards...

and this was certainly impressive:

loads of Marca Pato Quezo de Bola,
just the right amount of sugar,
on one of the softest, fluffiest,
most buttery buns ever.

Simply Awesome.

how to order:
P700 for a box of 12; P350 for half a dozen

text or call Chona Ayson at Homemade Treasures:
0928-5070928 and 045-3234149

deliveries from Porac to Makati:
every Thursday or Friday only

pick-up point:
#6 Orion St., Bel-Air

how to get there:

from makati avenue, turn right to jupiter
then immediately turn left to polaris st.

go straight and go past alba's and la tienda;
proceed to the (dead) end of polaris,
(you'll see a couple of korean restaurants)

turn left on orion st.;
#6 is the 2nd house in the right, green gate.

please look for manang brenda,
who will hand over your box of ensaymadas.

then run back to your car,
tear off the wrapper of your first porac's best,
smile, close your eyes, take a whiff, and enjoy your first bite...
