Malabon Shopping

    What to buy: Malabon is known for two food specialties. Pancit Malabon and Malabon Kakanin. Dolor's, a local shop, has been making "kakanin" ever since I could remember. Kakanin, as the name implies, is food made from kanin(rice). I will elaborate on this in a few weeks as my mom knows how to cook Kakanin.

    It is not unusual to get Kakanin from Dolor's as a present whenever you have Malabon residents visiting your place. It is even expected for most Filipinos who have sampled it develop a craving for kakanin. But mind you, Filipinos are sweet toothed so the same treat may not appeal to you if you are sugar conscious.

    Kakanin is very gooey. The different colors that you see are different flavors. You have coconut ones, ube, the red one is everybody's favorite although I cannot describe the taste. You get two kinds of coconut toppings which you sprinkle on the piece that you are eating.

    What you do not finish in one sitting, you have to keep in the refrigerator if you want to extend its shelf-life a few more days.

    What to pay: very reasonable although I cannot quote as often, we get kakanin as a gift. I'll try to find out though.
