Pampanguena Inc. Is Asian (Mostly Filipino) Groceries, Take-Out, and Catering
Goldilocks baked goods, which are delivered every other week, are big sellers. But it's the wall of rice that Elsa says will sell out by Monday (today being Friday). The pan de sal ($3.50 for a bag of 12 rolls), which is imported from a purveyor out of New Jersey, is also a popular item.
Pampanguena makes its mark with daily hot items and homemade frozen products such as Shanghai rolls ($30 for 26 pieces of beef spring rolls). One favorite, tocilog (or tosilog), is garlic rice with sausage (cured, marinated pork) and eggs. Kids love sinigang, a soup with a pork-based broth that is poured over rice; it's available weekdays except Wednesday. Banana rolls ($1.25), lumpia (spring roll), and boneless milkfish marinated in garlic and vinegar are available at the counter in the back of the store. There are even tables and chairs where patrons can enjoy their meal or one of the homemade desserts such as leche flan.
Pampanguena Inc. Is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It's closed Wednesday.
