Travelling to Malolos City is made easy by the North Luzon Expressway. Our first stop is the Famous Barasoain Church. Built in 1888 this Iconic structure has been the cradle of democary.
Aside from its historical places Malolos is also a home for some authentic Bulacan heritage cuisine.
Bistro Malolenyo offers heritage dishes and was kind enough to show us how they make their famous Hamon Bulakenya. We also tried their Pinaso, a festive Bulacan dessert that require a lot of sugar and fire.
Our next stop was at Mercy�s Original Empanada de Kaliskis. The name came from its flaky and ripple-like crust a result of creatively folding the dough to creates layers and then deep fried to perfection. Famous among locals and even our national hero Jose Rizal, Mercy�s Empanada is here to stay passing down the family guarded recipe from one generation to another.
