Manufacturer: Eng Bee Tin
Hopia is an inexpensive Filipino pastry traditionally filled with either munggo (dark beans) or kundol (white gourd cooked in lard to pass as baboy or pork). It was introduced by Fukienese immigrants from southern China.
The most famous Hopia manufacturer in the Philippines is Eng Bee Tin.
Eng Bee Tin was established in 1912 on Ongpin Street in Binondo, Manila by Chua Chiu Hong, a migrant from mainland China whose family decided to reside in the Philippines. The business started as a small stall and overcame financial difficulties to become one of the largest hopia manufacturer in the Philippines.
