This is a 100-year
old bakery, founded in 1919 by Ambrosio Lozada, the
father of the
internationally known violinist Carmencita Lozada and
and singer Manolo Lozada. The bakery’s name –
“untouchable” - was the pen name of Philippine hero Jose
Rizal in the
publication La Solidaridad.
Pasig’s first known
panaderia continues to sell well-loved Filipino breads
made the traditional
way, using a pugon or wood-fired oven, such as
bicho, pan de coco, monay, and Spanish breads. Today,
they have also become
known for their giant Brazo de Mercedez – a rolled
cake made from a
sheet of soft meringue with custard filling. They also
invented a square
biscuit called Di Ko Akalain (translated means “I did
not expect this”), a
recipe that their bakers stumbled upon when they
made a mistake with
one of their recipes but unexpectedly found it

Pateros, Manila has been closely associated with Balut for the longest time. Balut, the fear-factor Filipino delicacy of fertilized duck egg, has been taunting foreigners for a taste of its delectable soup and of course, the duck embryo. This duck-raising lone municipality in Manila got its name from ducks, also called ‘pato’ or its other industry, shoe-making.
Kaldereta is a
Filipino beef stew using cow’s meat, tomato sauce and liver
spread. In Pateros,
the meat is duck, specifically itik, a smaller-than-usual
brown duck, not the
white variety which is called pato. Unlike other
the duck meat here is fried first until golden brown,
creating an even more
flavorful meat for the stew. Using itik also makes
for a very aromatic
kaldereta with very flavorful meat whose soup is
almost like a sauce,
thanks to the incorporation of liver spread. It is an
excellent savory dish
that is popular both during town festivities called
fiestas and simply as
home-cooked dinner fare.
Specialties: KALDERETANG ITIK
