I was in Malabon City Hall about a week ago, before the storm. The people of Malabon knows a thing or two about floods, its geographical location putting it at the mercy of the tides. So much so that they are always on the forefront of the news whenever typhoons and storms hit the Metro. But Malabon is not only about floods. It's a very energetic city with its center always bustling with activity.
The major fast food franchises do not have a very strong presence Malabon and for a long time, Jollibee reigned king. But this city is certainly not lacking in the food department as there are a lot of restaurants, hole in the wall canteens, and food specialty stores there that offer uniquely delicious home cooking. And I am not just talking about the Pancit Malabon. It's been quite a while since I visited but not much has changed except for KFC opening up a branch there recently. I just feel bad about not being there for the grand opening. I could have witnessed this live:
KFC is a welcome addition to the community. I'm sure Jollibee doesn't mind the competition.
