What Pasalubong to Buy in CEBUThursday, May 23, 2013
Buying a unique pasalubong in Cebu is getting harder nowadays because almost all Cebu delicacies are sold in Manila as well. So here's a list of what to buy in Cebu that you can't find anywhere in Manila (as far as I know)
1. Cebu Lechon
Cebu Lechon is different from the Lechons sold in Manila. They're tastier even without sauce. Some of the famous Cebu Lechon offer boxes per kilo for take-out. I tried 2 Cebu Lechon brands already- Zubuchon and Ricos. I recommend you to order the latter. Why? Because Zubuchon is best enjoyed the first few hours after roasting.
2. Dried Mangoes with Chocolate coating
Dried Mangoes are everywhere but not with chocolate coating. Found this one at Cebu airport for P120 each. They also have dried pineapple chocolates :)
|P500 each (didn't buy this one)|
La Marea is a dessert haven that can be found only in Cebu. Their famous product is their Warm Brownie Cup, but since you can't take it out (it has ice cream) you can opt to order something else like their yummy Sylvannas.
|La Marea Sylvanna for P250 per box|
4. Sutukil Souvenir Shop
In Sutukil you can find tons of souvenir shops that's very cheap.
a. Cebu guitars
b. Souvenir keychains
c. Cebu Shirts
For a one stop shop of Cebu delicacies and dried fish, check out Metro Supermarket in Ayala Center Cebu, they have all types of Cebu pasalubong which is cheaper compared to airport rates.
