Background Story: 

Mrs. Dolores Santos started making and making native delicacies ( kakanins) to neighbors and in the market in the late 1930’s within Malabon.  Her kakanin sold very well that she soon opened a store in her house where she personally supervised and mixed in the flavorings for the kakanin during early dawn.  She worked with a passion for her delicious native delicacies and its soon gained popularity to far flung areas. Aling Dolor passed away in 1997, and the business is now being run by family members.

During the Malabon Food Trip several years ago conducted by Mr. Doy Arriola ( founder of  Pinoy Frugal Chow FB group ). Our group visited the old house where it all started.
