Cuapao for 30 pesos. Simple man's pork buns.Took the chance to pass by on an errand to Binondo last March.

It had a very small amount of meat lang, just enough na pwede na at 30 lang naman. I also never leave this place without hoarding some kundol.

It's like a mini grocery here with ready to eat food like matchang, siomai and barbecue. I also spotted packets of Chocknut drink which I regret not buying out of curiosity.

Parking is a b* here. Bring your own driver when you can.

I can't believe it's my first time to visit Holland in Ongpin. I have always heard of it being Eng Bee Tin's competitor on their hopia-tikoy-and other Chinese delicacies game.

Since I had a really really serious craving for radish cake, I asked a friend where in Binondo can I find the best tasting one... She suggested Holland, so I really made sure we'll be able to drop by yesterday. Holland's is a few steps from the main Ongpin Road, that's why I've never been there. I'm not that into going to the 'eskinitas' unless it's Dong Bei or Waiying. 128517 So when we entered the shop, first reaction was it's too small and crowded 128514 I brushed this off and started looking for the radish cake....and I did... yehey! I bought this and also tried their monggo hopia. obviously a best seller because there were only around five packs left!

Indeed, Holland is a competitor of Eng Bee Tin since they sell almost the same products. Hopia, tikoy, machang, and other snacks. I would say EBT has mor hopia and tikoy options while Holland has more machang. That's my observation as of now.

With regards to taste..... the radish cake was not good. 128531 I really craved for this cake because I celebrated CNY in Hong Kong last year and sure did I eat radish cake, gabi cake, and tikoy the whole day... because it's a tradition that people visit friends' and relatives' homes on the first day of the year and they serve these three sticky cakes. Rationale? Something about the idea of them being sticky - to make the bond stronger and continue throughout the whole year. My relatives in HK cook their own sticky cakes (the three types) and I had them in mind when I compared Holland's version. What a let down. 128531

I liked the monggo hopia we took home! I also like EBT's but the moment I tried Holland's, I realized that theirs is more authentic! imo, EBT's has been Filipinized already to fit the Filipino taste and also for ease of production since they're now more on mass production. You see a big difference with the hopia's crust - Hollands' being more flaky and closer to those I've tried in China.. I can only say that theirs is more authentic but I still like EBT's! My Filipino tastebuds prefer them actually. Just wanted to point out the authenticity. 128517

Holland's is now part of my routine whenever I'm in Chinatown because I want to try their machangs and other hopia flavors!

Quality definitely beats quantity!

Before a friend of mine, a chef at City of Dreams, introduced me to Ho-land Delicacies, I was a huge fan of Eng Bee Tin.

"EBT's hopia seem to have lost the essence of authentic Chinese taste, I guess they must've sacrificed quality in lieu of mass production." he told me when I dragged him to buy hopia after a long day at Divi.

So we passed the colorful display of EBT to a more solemn but brimming with 'oriental feel' shop at Yuchengco St. Though it was plain-looking, their was something about the paper packaging of their hopia that simply emits quality. Grabbing a cute little basket, the little baked-goodie addict inside me went overdrive and I picked up everything that caught my attention; mooncakes in choco, ube, and lotus cream; hopia in custard, ube, mongo, and kundol; tikoy roll; peanut ampao; mini-mochi in choco and even garlic peanuts! 14 items (2 per mooncake) for just PhP 390!

On the trip back home, my friends and I shared some of the treats:
1. Mini-mochi: soft and chewy mochi. Chocolate isn't too sweet but nothing to rave either. 110881108811088
2. Peanut tikoy roll: The aroma (is it banana essence) seems to have amped up the flavour of this sweet-sticky treat. I love the fact that they don't scrimp on the peanut paste unlike other brands! Definitely better than the ones I've tried! 11088110881108811088
3. Peanut Ampao: Very crunchy and obviously fresh! I remember buying one that was a bit off so I have this bad habit of squishing a tiny portion before grabbing a pack. Sssshh! 11088110881108811088
4. Mooncakes: Dough was baked just right and it was really packed with fillings unlike some which seems to have little. Tastes ordinary, or is my tongue just used to artificial flavours? *sob* 110881108811088
5. Hopia: Custard isn't too sweet. The texture is perfect too! Prefer this than Eng Bee Tin's version! The ube however, was another story, I guess the pioneer really seems to have outbaked the rest. But the real whopper for me is the kundol (wintermelon)! I've never really had one before so I can't compare. But Ho-land's Hopia Kundol (especially when reheated) really is DELICIOUS! Right amount of sweetness, balanced dough-filling ratio and heavenly wintermelon filling! Must try warm! 1108811088110881108811088

Gave the garlic peanut to my Mum and she finished it off before I could say "Pahingi!" From the looks of it, I probably missed a lot. Haha!

DO NOT- I repeat- DO NOT LEAVE HO-LAND WITHOUT A PACK OF HOPIA KUNDOL. 128525

After a fulfilling lunch at Wai Ying, we decided to get some goodies here in Holand Hopia and Bakery. My friend was a bit tired of the usual Eng Bee Tin, and so I brought him here to try something new.

I got my usual favorite custard hopia and still good as the first time I tried it. He told me that he liked it a lot. It's like the feeling of flying in the air and reaching the dreamy landscapes of heaven because of its unexplainable yet genuine taste. 128076 Sow gaad!

9/10: Second to the last stop in our itinerary! It was originally planned to be on the last part but since it's on our way already, we decided to visit this first instead. Wrong move since the pasalubongs were so heavy and we still have to visit another one. 128555

• PLACE
- Holand Hopia and Bakery is one of the oldest bakery in the area. My Dad even told me that my grandpa used to buy here way back. But at home, we usually buy pasalubong at Eng Be Tin. Moving on, I've decided to choose this since we always get our goods from Eng Be Tin and I want to buy pasalubongs from somewhere else. I've also heard that they have better tasting Hopia than Eng Be Tin.

• SERVICE
- Nothing to highlight about.

• FOOD
- Wide variety of hopia and breads to choose from. I was surprised to see the different unusual combinations they have. I had assorted kinds of Hopia upon my liking just to see it for myself. But I guess my heart belongs to Eng Be Tin. Their hopia filling was a bit dry and crumbly compare to Eng Be Tin's sticky sweet filling. 128531128531128531

128162128165But to be clear, this rating is for the Ube Hopia alone since boyfie had the Custard (which I've heard the best one). I'll better go back to try their custard. But for now, I'll still go for Eng Be Tin. 128517

The only hopia I seem to like are the ones from Holland. This time I tried the Hopia Baboy. It was good, but I just didn't appreciate the sesame seeds. It overpowered the taste of the Baboy.

Unfortunatly this turned out to be our last stop. We were going to have Lumpia pa sana at New Po Heng as the last stop of our tour, but it was already too late and they were closed. So bitin. Huhu.

The second stop of the Looloo eatup happened here just for grabbing some pasalubongs. I always like their Custard hopia so much, and so I decided to get one for my mom. Php 45,00 for a pack of 5 pieces of delicious & filling hopia wasn't bad at all. 128076

I'm sure Doraemon will get crazy once hs stepped into this store!

Here we got a store full of different types of hopia and a lot more. I got the hopiang monggo original and the custard hopia. All for less than a hundred bucks! 128077

I had the chance to try this before my mom finishes it this korning..

The hopiang monggo tastes better from the usual Tipas bakery hopia, although there's no actual difference but the taste itself.
The custard hopia was the killer! It's sweet and delightful, of course it's custard! Lol.

Move over, EBT! 128513

Our 3rd stop in our unofficial Binondo eatup was at the Ho-land store. Usually people buy a lot from Eng Bee Tin, but the locals recommended that we try some of the stuff here. It was my first time to see they had Custard Hopia. It's a lot like normal hopia, but sweeter and creamier. And they're only 45 pesos for a roll of 6!

They also sell some other interesting stuff here, like fish-shaped Tikoy for about 160 (but sold in hotels for thousands of pesos) and different varieties of Machang for 45 pesos. I'm really happy about finding this custard hopia. I think I'll be buying from these guys more often in the future.

Thanks for letting us try your hopia Jairus d, and thanks for the photo Russel F!

I've always expected eng bee tin to be better but in fairness, may laban Ang ho-land Hopia. The custard Hopia was really good. Better than that of Eng bee tin IMO. Reminded me of soft buchi for some reason :)

Plus you have a choice of the one you want is the one cooked in corn oil or the normal one. Don't know the difference, Baka mas healthy yung isa??? Forgot to ask e. Haha.

Will come back soon for pasalubong. Haha.

PS: they even have a gold fish tikoy. Natuwa ako. And giant lollipops. Hahaha. Random lang e.

Best hopia evah!

Been eating this since I was a kid. My lolo had an office in Escolta before so we would always go to Ongpin for treats like this - hopia, bicho bicho, and fried siopao.

Despite the fame of Eng Bee Tin and Polland, theyve got nothing on my favorite Holland.

Love their kundol. Its a rectagular hopia with pineapple (ata). Their monggo and piggy hopia are also good. I saw Select Magallanes selling them but I like going to the main store for sentimental reasons.

If you think Eng Bee Tin have the best hopia in town, then you're wrong! Walk 30 steps straight from Eng Bee Tin turn right and walk another 50 steps and you will see this old store along Nueva and Carvajal in Ongpin and tada!!! The best and authentic hopia for me. Size is bigger and not too oily compared to EBT. 35 pesos for 5 pcs. Solb na! + hot soy milk from Tasty Dumpling and you are good to go! (Shopping sa 168 lol) 128055128055128055128061128061128061
