Filipino Home Baking & Grocery

Filipino-style snacks.

From November 2005 “Eating Wheaton”

Empanadas Filipino-style are the reason to duck into the Filipino Home Baking & Grocery, where the sweetish dough envelops a savory stuffing of carrots, raisins, onions, and ground beef. Another must: hopia, a flaky Chinese bun popular in the Philippines. Here they're filled with red-bean paste, purple yams, or scallions.
