Warm Bites: Bakers’ Fair Hopia

Bakers' Fair

Have you ever had hopia from a Bakers’ Fair store in Manila? The girls of FoodPrints bought warm hopia when we passed by one at the Farmer’s Market. Hopia is cooked right in front of you, so they are warm and fresh. The buttery quality was pure pleasure, a case of discovering something new in something old.

Locals can be your best guides.
