If you haven’t noticed, a lot of our desserts are getting the ube-and-cheese makeover—there’s the popular pandesal, cookies, cinnamon rolls, buchi, and even bibingka. One of the more interesting ube and cheese items we recently found comes in the form of hopia, made by former Sports TV host, Georgia Rocha-Chu of Snackalubong.
Snackalubong has two cheesy hopias: choose from the Ube Cheese and the Pandan Cheese flavors. These have that distinct crust, similar to that of shortcrust, and its center uses a creamy bean-based filling mixed with ube or pandan. A chunk of cheese is placed in the center, to add a contrasting sweet and salty taste.
Snackalubong’s Ube Cheese Hopia and Pandan Cheese Hopia, and the other non-cheesy hopias included, are baked and delivered on the same day. Even if you receive the cheesy hopias freshly baked, it’s still highly recommended to heat it in the toaster before taking a bite to get that explosion of melted gooey cheese in the center.
Snackalubong’s Ube Cheese and Pandan Cheese Hopia are available for P300/box of 20 assorted pieces. For the non-cheesy hopias, these are sold for P200/box of 20 assorted pieces. You can choose from flavors like the Ube, Mongo, Pandan, Red Bean, and Salted Egg.
