Eng Bee Tin

Sunday, May 25, 2008
Ask anyone what's the best hopia in town, and he or she will surely answer: "Eng Bee Tin" without really thinking hard.

If you're looking for the best hopia and tikoy in town, Eng Bee Tin is the place to be. I always go here whenever my relatives want me to send them Chinese delicacies in the US. It has also been a part of our life whenever Chinese New Year comes or whenever we just feel like to eat hopia or tikoy. I've been here several times and I always see lots of customers queuing around. Whether early in the morning or late at night, the store is always packed with people buying different flavored hopia and other Chinese delicacies as thought it would be their last meal. Maybe because of the quality of their products that you can taste. I, myself can attest the quality and freshness of their products.

Eng Bee Tin at Ongpin Street

Eng Bee Tin's hopia ube was first featured in Cory Quirino's CityLine. Little did Mr. Gerry Chua, owner of Eng Bee Tin, know that it would forever change his life. The next day Gerry was surprised to see his phone ringing off the hook. He received dozens of calls from interested customers, dealers and kibitzers.

Nowadays, Chua produces more than 15,000 packs of hopia a day and this is distributed all over the country and even exported now since his products have a shelf life of one week outside the refrigerator.

Eng Bee Tin's all time favorites are Hopia Ube, Mongo, Red Mongo, Baboy, Pandan, Mongo Lite, Pina, Long Life, Ube Dice, Ube Langka, Mochaccino, Choco-Peanut, Ube Keso and Ube Pastillas and lots of Tikoy to choose from. They also have native products, frozen items, bread and cakes, crackers/flakes and ready to eat like siomai, pork kikiam roll, lumpiang shang hai, goyong roll, camaron relleno, fried meat balls, fried wanton, lechon kawali, pork asado and asado egg.

Tarts and Pastillas

Eng Bee Tin products are locally available in various supermarkets, groceries, restaurants, office and school canteens. The company is also one of the biggest international exporters of Hopia, delivering to Asia, Middle East, Europe and USA.

Eng Bee Tin goodness and freshness in every bite, meant to capture your hearts!

Binondo Church

The word Binondo came from the word Binundok which means mountain or boondocks.

Founded in 1594, Binondo was created by Spanish Governor Luis Perez Dasmarinas as a permanent settlement for Chinese converted immigrants across the river from the walled city of Intramuros where the Spaniards resided. It was originally intended to replace the Parian near Intramuros where the Chinese were confined. The land grant was given to a group of Chinese merchants and artisans in perpetuity, tax-free and with limited self-governing privileges.

Binondo Church

The Spanish Dominican fathers made Binondo their Parish and succeeded converting a great many of the Chinese residents to Catholicism. Binondo soon became the place where Chinese immigrants converted to Catholicism, intermarried with indigenous Filipino women and procreated to produce a nascent Chinese mestizo community. Over the years, the Chinese mestizo of Binondo grew rapidly. This was caused by 2 factors: the lack of Chinese immigrant females and the policies of the Spanish authorities in expelling and massacring pure-blooded Chinese immigrants who refused to convert. Luis Perez Dasmarinas played a prominent role in the massacre of 20,000 Chinese after a Chinese revolt in 1603.

Facade of Binondo Church

Binondo is the historic birthplace of a new race called mestizo de sangley. It was also the birthplace of San Lorenzo Ruiz, a mestizo de sangley who would later become the First Filipino Saint. Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz and the Binondo Church(formal name: Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz) are named after him. And the Chapel of Our Lady of China now in Binondo Church. (Wikipedia)
