The store was named after one of the Mateo daughters or grand daughters (if somebody can confirm this). It was very popular during its days, especially its waffle hotdog – as far as the author knows, it was the only one that’s offering it.
The author remembers that the only time he could have that waffle hotdog was only during special occasions or when his younger cousin would ask her mom for one (damay na!). The author had the impression that the snack house was a bit pricey during that time. The author’s wife added that it was the only restaurant who offered mango shake and on Sundays, one can order for a lechon in the morning; the pig was roasted at Dino Mark Bowling Alley area, which has the same owner.
Its name changed several times. One time, it was a bus stop for trips to Manila (the author is sure it wasn’t Sarkies Tours). But for the author, it will always be Bahay Minindalan.
It would be great if the Sorsoganon readers can share their stories about this establishment.
