My grandma, Pilar Gonzalez, established this bakeshop when I was still little. A enterprising woman, my grandma, set-up her home-based bakeshop because of her love for baking. Owning a taco factory (which was Super Taco at that time, now called Megamexicana), my lola always had a knack for baking. As far as I can remember, she has always made all these lovely Filipino-Spanish goodies like Tarta de Madrid, Sansrival, Ensaimada and even lovely cream puffs and eclairs. For years, her home had always smelled like freshly baked cakes and cookies, and people would come over to buy them…and even re-label them as their own.
I grew up with these finger pastries packaged in these transparent canisters… Lengua de Gatos, Pallillos de Milan and Argellanas. I’ve always had friends and other family members taste them and they would always, always praise and even get the address where they could get them. Now that my lola already passed away, my dad, along with his brothers and sister are now continuing my lola’s business and we are now offering some of these goods (the packaged ones), to major supermarkets.
If any of you would like to try out these goods, you can come over to my grandma’s house at 18 Scout Fuentebella Street, Quezon City…or if you’d like to inquire about the goodies we offer, you can call 373-2789.
Our family is going to be coming out in a magazine in a couple of months, showcasing Mega mexicana, Pastelleria Mallorca & Cafe Ysabel. Hopefully we get a copy of those pics. 🙂
