Filipino Sweet Beat: Hilda's Mart and Bake Shop
|Ube puto: Steamed purple yam and rice cakes.|
While the hopia seems to be the hit amongst Yelpers, it was too much on the dry and bland side for us. Ditto for the suman, but that's only because we're spoiled from the Thai version served with condensed coconut milk and fresh mango. We ordered small, individual treats ($1.15-$3) but noticed that Hilda's specializes in family-size portions of these and a few other creations, no doubt a special gift to the Pinoy population craving a taste of home during the holidays. We could have eaten a posse platter of the maja all by ourselves.
