The group got their inspiration from the Empanada de Kaliskis from Malolos City , Bulacan . This is an heirloom pastry which is flaky , deep fried , stuffed with meat.  It’s origin dates back in 1820 and the dish is still an all time favorite among people visiting the province. I have eaten this several times whenever i got a chance to visit Malolos.
