Quan Native Delicacies — House of your all-time favorite native delicacies

Quan is the name associated with traditional native delicacies that had its origin 20 years ago. Established in Bacolod City by the mother and daughter team of Agnes Cuenca and Chole Cuenca-Chua, Quan Native Delicacies already has seven branches scattered all over Bacolod City, one in Talisay City, and they have also an outlet in Makati City. Quan had its beginnings with a recipe for puto that was handed down to Agnes by Chole’s great grandmother, Mercedes Jalandoni. Along with puto, Chole also sold cuchinta and eventually added other delicacies like bibingka and cassava cake in their menu.

Quan became a big hit because people loved their delicious goodies sold at affordable prices. Aside from the prices, people are assured that they’re fresh since they’ve passed the strictest quality control. All the branches are monitored everyday for customer service and food handling.

Chole takes care of the marketing aspect of the business while Agnes is in charge of the kitchen. Quan is now a full-fledged restaurant serving meals and other snacks and has likewise become a bakery business selling breads, cakes, and pastries.

I feel privileged to have met both Agnes and Chole during a fun-filled food trip experience with the Negros Bloggers at the Quan La Salle Avenue branch. The owners shared some information on how Quan came about while we were tasting some of their delicious dishes and delicacies like dinuguan and puto, palabok and garlic toast, pandan-flavored cassava cake, suman latik, alupi, kalamay hati, guava cupcakes, sausage rolls, brazo cupcakes, bibingka, fresh lumpia ubod, panara, and napoleones.

We were also given a copy of ‘Tita’s Book of Favorite Recipes‘, a compilation of the recipes of Conchita Cuenca or more popularly known as Tita Conchita, a culinary legend in Bacolod. Before the end of our get-together, Mrs. Agnes Cuenca held a book signing session. The event finished with us taking home boxes of napoleones (in its new packaging) and Quan’s new Christmas Cherry Cake. I also took home Brazo cupcakes and guava cupcakes for my little one.

Quan Native Delicacies, just like the word “kwan” that will remain forever in the Ilonggo vocabulary, will always remain a Negrense favorite.
