The Krispy Kreme of HOPIA!!!
Eng Bee Tin Hopia
the undisputed market leader,
while definitely still quite delicious,
I find to be a bit too over-processed;
as a result, their hopia filling is like Gerber:
way too smooth and soft, with flavors difficult to discern.
And that's why my new #1
is none other than Master Hopia,
with its classic soft, flaky crust,
available still warm from the oven,
with rich fillings with real textures,
exploding with extraordinary flavors!
The Condol tastes like a deluxe august Moon Cake,
the Cheese flavor tastes like Marca Pato Quezo de Bola,
Macapuno-Pandan tastes like Nathaniel's famous dessert,
and this King Size Baboy? I believe it's just like Italian Lardo!
