Great Filipino food in Hamilton.

  • 1

I have eaten twice at Golden Bread, in a strip mall at the corner of Flock Road and Quakerbridge Road in Hamilton.

It is both a Filipino bakery and an eatery. The food is dispensed from behind a counter and has proven to be quite good. I first had Filipino food in New York City about fifty years ago, and liked it then, but haven't had much recently.

What is served is, to my taste, quite authentic and very reasonably priced. I have had tocino and dinuguan (less spicy than I am used to). They are served with rice and a side dish. The portions are ample. There seem to be different choices on different days, along with items that are listed on a menu.

I have not tried any of the sweet baked goods, but the savory ones (pork and chicken empanadas, pork steamed bun, pork baked bun and a flaky pork pastry whose name I can recall) were all wonderful. I look forward to trying their sweet pastries as well as having many other meals there.

Note that the place closes at seven and many things are sold out in the early evening. You would best come for lunch.

  1. Being Filipino, I have tried to frequent this place a few times, but have never gotten over there by the time they close. Bummer! Definitely want to see their take on adobo, as well as checking out their lumpia. Hopefully someday soon!
