Pinagong Atbp.

As promised in my last post, I will blog something about the food trip we had during our recent visit to Quezon Province. So here it is:

First on the list is Pinagong. Pinagong is a kind of bread. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so here is one I got with my camera phone:


Honestly, I do not know the reason why they named it Pinagong, it doesn’t look like a turtle to me πŸ™‚ Some bakeries in Manila are selling pinagong, but in my humble opinion the pinagong from Quezon are better than the pinagong being sold in Manila. The one below is from my town (Lopez), freshly baked:

pinagong too

Another favorite pinagong is the one being sold by street vendors in Sariaya, Quezon. One pack of small pinagong Sariaya costs ten pesos (six pieces) and these are really a treat for me, Ujinn and Raven.

I added some freshly baked monay with the pinagong. The monay goes well with the ice cream.


Do you love pinagong? Feel free to leave some comments here.

    it was called pinagong because its form was copied from turtle. bakeries here in our place don’t bake that one.

    I love pinagong. I had been looking for the recipe for a long time. Baking is one of my hobbies I don’t sell just for eating with company.Please share your pinagong recipe and I will treasure it. Thanks.
