Do you remember where you had your first Mamon? I had my very first Mamon from Goldilocks and I loved it since then. I am just curious, before the extreme commercialization of baked products in the Philippines, would you know as to where this masterpiece first came into being? I believe that there is a single province or city in the Philippines where this pastry first became popular; I’m planning to give that place a visit next month during my vacation to be able to have an authentic Mamon experience.
