Rosquillos with a Heart
Not long before, most of northbound public vehicles are stopping over in Titay’s Rosquillos and Delicacies in Liloan. I still remember when I was a child, Titay’s is already there. Now that there are number of bakeries along, Titay’s now become an option, some buses stop here, some won’t. We’ll Titay’s was there since 1907 and still untill now serving happy people for their famous rosquillos! Yesterday, when we headed to the Parola, we proceeded to Titay’s to grab a snack. It was my first time to be there not in haste (not worried to be left from a public bus) taking time to eat inside the store and talking to the sales person and cashier.
Letting minutes passes by inside
I grab a coffee-no, not that they made their own coffee now but a coffee on the vendo machine and coks did grab a kitkat drumstick together with rosquillos, caicai and pinnato!
While waiting for the orders to come. Watching what others are buying and it’s amazing they buy dozens. Children even come and do buying themselves.
There are several tables inside and a good magazines for read. It was a relaxing evening! 🙂
The portrait of Mama Titay and the Story
In 1907, many locals visited Liloan to knock on the door of Margarita “Titay” Frasco. They would look for her nameless biscuits and usually paired it with a bottle of soda. The biscuits became so popular that the news reached the provincial governor who then dropped by the town. Since the biscuit was nameless, the governor dubbed it Rosquillos from the word rosca meaning ringlet.
God made the Earth
The rest is history and well.. there is this wall decor which says:
God made the earth and rested.
God made man and rested.
Then God made woman, and since then neither God nor man has rested.
Made me read it more than twice and think over what the author means..
Here’s the view from the road, you can visibly see this along the highway.
