Eng Bee Tin hopia in the GTA?
Do you know where to find Eng Bee Tin hopia in the GTA? (For those wondering, hopia is a Filipino-Chinese snack consisting of flaky pastry filled with a paste made of ube (purple yam) or mungo beans.)
I'm willing to drive as far west as Mississauga, as far east as Scarborough, and as far north as Vaughan. I've already checked out T & T Supermarkets, but no luck. I know most Filipino and Chinese bakeries offer hopia, but I'm having trouble finding this particular brand.
Dear Patio Lantern,
I found Eng Bee Tin hopia today!!! And I thought of you!
I found the Eng Bee Tin hopia at a Filipino Restaurant in Scarborough called Jessie Jr. They have a website so you can Google the exact address. They have 2 branches. Hubby and I went to the one on Sheppard Ave East corner Brimley.
I bought one pack of the mungo & one pack of the ube. They even had some other flavors (hopia baboy and some winter-melon thingie). So happy!
I tried looking for the receipt but I can't find it anymore. But if I remember correctly they cost about CAD$4.00 for the 2 packs. A little steep but I love hopia so I thought it was totally worth it.
re: Crispier Crouton
Thanks, C Crouton! I've emailed them but no bites so far. These are easy to find in Asian stores in Vancouver, so I figured it would be the same here in Toronto, but since I'm not having any luck, I figured I'd ask the Chowhounders. I'm told by a Chinese friend that they're similar to moon cakes or wife cakes.
