A Chinese Bakeshop in one of San Juan's foodie side streets that offers good & affordable treats. Their Egg Pie, Kamote Mani Balls, and Yema Cake were worth the navigation thru the one-way streets. This is Eng Ho Bakeshop.

The place has been open for more than a year. I've seen the place but never gave it much thought of visiting until recently. It was timely that I was at Cafe Ysabel (which is just a few steps across Eng Ho), and decided to check up the bakeshop after.

Good thing, upon checking Looloo, this branch of Eng Ho was one of their few branches around the city. I got to also read a number of good reviews about some of their specialties from reviewers who have visited their other branches. This intrigued me more.

The place is easy to miss. It is located beside a Laundromat. Typical of a Chinese Bakery with counters displaying their offerings. A good number of selections ranging from sweet stuff to savory. A small seating counter were customers may opt to eat and have coffee (yup, they serve coffee!).

I decided to try some their positively reviewed products.

Egg Pie: their Egg Pie was indeed good. The crust was nicely dense yet flakey. The egg custard, nicely sweetened with a texture bordering on fluffiness and denseness. It was indeed one of the better Egg Pies that I have tasted. Not bad at all for just 25 a slice.

Kamote Mani Balls: a Chinoy sweet snack that resembles Mochi. The casing is made of sticky rice paste with a stuffing made of sweetened crushed peanuts mixed with mashed kamote. I loved the chewy, sticky treat. The sticky casing was yummy with the nutty-sweet taste of the crushed roasted peanuts that gave the delicacy a nice crunch. Not bad at all for just 55 for 6 pcs.

The Yema Cake: I'm a fan of good Yema cake. Eng Ho's version was yummy. Not as soft and custardy as Rodilla's and Blue Kitchen's BUT I'm liking the fluffy cake with a thin layer of caramelly leche flan in the middle. The pastry had a topping of creamy Yema custard and sprinkled with grated cheese. Yum! Not bad for just 45 for a generous slice.

I wanted to try their Chicken Empanada (reviewers said that this was good too). Too bad the Empanadas weren't available.

Will definitely come back for their good and affordable treats!
