Marikina may be a fast becoming popular food hub but it has always been that way for the locals. Marikeños are among the country’s best foodies (according to me of course!) and this was the truth established by homegrown heritage restaurants and eating places. Fortunately for you and me, some of these best food hubs are still very much alive today, even reinvented themselves, and are open to serve the public with their must-try dishes.
On top of my list is ALING SALUD PANCITERIA of Barangay San Roque, Marikina. If you are an elderly or a middle-aged local from District 1 of Marikina, you are familiar with this panciteria which was established in 1968. The original owner, Aling Salud, coined the term “pancit pinagulong” to refer to her authentic way of making pancit which became famous in Marikina. Its popularity enticed other panciteria owners to make their own versions of pancit pinagulong.
The restaurant matriarch, Aling Salud already passed away and her tres marias granchildren decided to continue and rejuvenate the family food business. They renovated the restaurant and improved the menu selection and are now very much ready to accommodate small or big group of families, friends, and workmates. The restaurateurs of Aling Salud also accommodate orders made thru phone calls or walk-ins for take out and pick-up.
Aling Salud is found along J.P. Rizal Street, Bgy. San Roque, Marikina City. It is along the side of Marikina’s Shoe Museum and just after the strip of shops selling Marikina’s small “puto” (rice cake).
Ready for the feast, the Marikina way? Here goes the top dishes of Aling Salud panciteria —
Aling Salud offers balet parking for scheduled events. For walk-in guests, one-side parking is available at the left side of the street. The restaurant is open from 9am to 9pm daily.
