TAMALES is one of the most favorite delicacies of Cavite City by pure blooded Caviteno. Made of ground peanuts and galapong that is steamed and wrapped in banana leaves. It looks simple at first sight but requires a very tedious process to make. This popular brand of tamales is named after the current owner’s great grandfather Henry Benjamin Robinson, a former staff member of the USS Olympia under Admiral George Dewey.
