Indeed. I now live in Makati City and the bakery near my place is owned and operated by someone from San Felipe Cuenca, Batangas.

The article also mentioned about Sinangaok, a broth with chunks of pork with fat, a bit dark with sitaw (yardlong beans) and labanos (radish). It's one of those dishes that my lola used to cook for us. Ah, memories...
