Did you know that the city of Malabon used to be known as Tambobong?
The name Tambobong originated from the numerous tambo trees growing in the area and the name that endured describes the abundant tender and edible shoots of the bamboo: “labong”, –which was one of the original ingredients of Malabon’s signature dish: Yes, you guessed it–the famous Pancit “Malabon”.
But Pancit isn’t the only thing the city is famous for, it is also known for a variety of kakanin, such as puto sulot, puto bumbong, sapin-sapin, broas, bibingka and camachile and you can find these culinary delights all around the city.
It’s also the primary source of seafood for those living in Metro Manila and you probably heard the stories of your parents and grandparents heading all the way to Malabon whenever they want to eat fresh seafood.
Malabon also has a rich cultural history and several old homes have become historical landmarks: the Dionisio family home, the Rivera house, the Villongco house, the Luna house, the Martinez house, the Chikiamco house, the Rojas-Borja house, the (Teodoro) Luna house, the Santos-Lapus house, the Pantaleon Bautista house, the Syjuco (formerly Gaza) house, and the Raymundo house, considered to be the oldest located along C. Arellano Street.
Now, a new landmark rises in Malabon, and it brings together the best of the city with the most modern amenities to benefit its residents.
Fishermall Malabon is the second mall from Mallers Management Corporation (the first is located in Quezon City) and is an homage to its President Ray del Rosario’s ancestors who initiated Irma Fishing fishing business based in Malabon.
Located at C4-Road, cor. Dagat-Dagatan Ave , Fisher Mall Malabon officially opened yesterday January 31, 2019, treating its customers with a weekend full of fun activities, concerts and special promotions.
At the ribbon cutting ceremony the owners shared that it was their way of giving back to the community, by offering an alternative shopping experience for practically all types of shoppers.
We had the chance to go around the mall and it has almost all the shops you can see in bigger malls as well as a few unique ones that you simply must try. The Morita Express, for example serves really good ramen.
There are also a lot of great finds at the Department store which you can get at even better prices as part of their opening sale this weekend.
