Food Lover? Come and visit my hometown, Malabon City.

Malabon City is my hometown. I have lots of good childhood memories that I would always keep in my heart being raised in that city. I moved to a different city near my workplace when I started working in a Corporate World, I still visited my hometown from time to time as my family and relatives were still living there.

The main reason why I keep on coming back to my hometown aside from my loved ones is the food. Yes, I’m a food lover and there’s a huge selection of great food finds that will satisfy your cravings when you visited Malabon City.

Below is the list of great food finds that I want to share with you all:

  • Pancit Malabon – It’s a Pancit named after the city. It’s a stir-fried noodle dish, topped with shrimp, chicharon (made from pork skin), pork strips, onion leaves, and special sauce and spices. This is my all-time favorite since I was a kid.
