Filipino Bakeries in Chicagoland

I recently enjoyed a Filipino pastry called "Endaymada Ube." It's a delicious sweet bread pastry about the size of a small apple, with a sweet yam filling and topped with a light frosting and cheese curls. Anyone know where one can buy these in the Chicago area?

  1. A search on Metromix turns up two Filipino bakeries in the listings, both in West Rogers Park:

    Mom's Bake Shoppe and Restaurant
    2415 W. Peterson Ave.
    Chicago, IL 60659

    Marie Gold Bakery and Fast Food
    5752 N. California Ave.
    Chicago, IL 60659

    You might want to try calling first; Metromix's listings are not always accurate. (I don't have any personal experience with either business.)

    1. I noticed last night that there is a "Phillipine Plaza" on the east side of Clark, around 5600 N. Apparently they have a bakery in there, although I've never stopped in.
