Humble Beginnings

Quan Native Delicacies North Drive started in 1985. It was just one glass case of puto that Agnes Aguirre-Cuenca and her daughter Chole Cuenca-Chua was famous for. The display case was placed in the office of Chole’s friend who later became her sister-in-law.

The famous duo at Quan Delicacies — dinuguan and puto.

Little did they know that it would be the start of a life-long journey.

Soon after, Quan took over that office and is now the site of Quan North Drive. Since this site is near schools and hospitals, it is no wonder that many Bacolodnons have made lots of memories in this branch.

It has been more than three decades and Quan Native Delicacies has cemented their title. It is the go-to place for delicious, affordable, sanitary Pinoy native delicacies in Bacolod City.

One of the newest additions is the Quan Sud-an. These are frozen all-Filipino favorite dishes packed in microwaveable containers. If homemakers don’t have time to cook at home, all they need to do is thaw and defrost these in the microwave for a few minutes. Voila! Home-cooked meals served in an instant.

Sugar-Free Products

Bacolod City is known as Sugarlandia because of the sugar plantations that we have. Plus, we also like sweet dishes and of course, desserts. However, there are those among us who watch their sugar intake because of health reasons.

For them, Quan has developed their sugar-free snack items. But since these are still carbs, moderate consumption is still advised.

Fastfood and Snack Bar

The fastfood was among the earliest developments at Quan. They are famous for their lasagna, arroz caldo, pancit palabok, fresh lumpia, pork barbecue, and dinuguan. They have served the same for many years and they still taste the same.
