At a Glance : Cebu City, Philippines

This finally ends my short yet truly satisfying trip to Cebu City. However, what's a trip without being able to bring home some goodies? That will never happen with me as I love to shop for pasalubong for my entire family!

Prior to my trip, I was given a few packs of these delicious chocolate covered dried mangoes by a client. I loved it! From the packaging down to the actual product, it literally shows how premium it is and mind you, the product was indeed not cheap.

Researching about it, I landed in my friend Leslie's blog which was my main resource in knowing where to find it in the city. I also found out that aside from those delicious chocolate covered mangoes, they also have other products such as the spicy garlic peanuts with dried mangoes. Others might raise their eyebrows at this combination but not me. Being a fan of mixed flavors (eg: sweet-salty, sweet-sour,salty-sour, etc), I made sure that we visit the store after our dinner at Golden Cowrie.

Here are the prices of their items:
Chocolate covered dried mangoes - Php. 350 (box of 12), Php. 660 (box of 24).
Spicy peanuts with dried mango bits - Php. 30 (small pack), Php. 300 (pack of 10 bags)

Now, let me do a recap on where to stay and eat while in Cebu:

Accommodation : Summit Circle Hotel

Where to eat!
Zubuchon
CnT Lechon
La Marea Pastry and Lavazza Shop
Golden Cowrie Native Restaurant
Simply J's

Cebu Best Pasalubong Center is located along Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City. (Ask any driver and they know where to go). Can't wait to go to Cebu? There's someone selling here in Metro Manila, call them at 632-2166.
