Camiguin Pasalubong: Vjandep Pastel Branches in CDO
Pastel is the pasalubong for Camiguin's visitors, much like every destination in the Philippines has one. (To Filipinos, bringing home something bought from a travel or vacation to family and friends is part of Filipino culture called pasalubong and is the reason why it's so easy to spot Filipinos in airports-- too much baggage mostly pasalubong stuff!)
Pastel is available in cheese, langka, macapuno, mango, Pineapple and made-to-order durian, guava, strawberry, chocolate, and special yema
Vjandep Pastel recipe ingredients(bun): Flour, eggs, milk, sugar, butter, shortening and yeast
Filling ingredients: milk, butter and eggs

These pastrylicious pastels used to be not available in Manila but now can be bought at Shopwise Department stores and Market! Market in Taguig City. Have yet to see them in Greenhills and SM though.
What's your favorite pasalubong?

My pasalubong to friends: Pili nuts from Bicol!
But those Pastels look good!

Are these the soft breads that seem to melt in your mouth. :)
I like the peanuts from Iligan.

I love those Pastels too. My father buys them whenever he visits Cagayan De Oro (yup, they're sold there too). I just don't like those Durian variants.

masarap yung chocolate flavor =)may vjandep pastel sa SM.. SM davao hehehe =P another heart-stopping (literally) pasalubong from cagayan de oro is sler's chicharon. for me, better than the famous chicharon of carcar (cebu). favorites? marami.. bagnet ng ilocos, marang ng cotabato, bongbong's broas from negros, at seafoods from gensan, to name a few. halatang matakaw! masarap talaga mamasyal sa Pilipinas kasi bawat lugar, may kanya kanyang produkto. hindi lang mata ang busog, pati tiyan.

carlotta, pastillas of bulacan is the best for me so far. chichacorn of ilocos?
sidney, pili is really synonymous with bicol. good thing it's not tapang butanding :P
abaniko, the original flavor has yema that melts in your mouth :P
tani, the first time i saw them was in CDO, yes. durian aversion, heh?
miss.adventures, travel and food tripping goes hand in hand. hope to feature more of them here in the future

my favorite pasalubong from the philippines is dried squid even though my husband and children think it smells horrible. i would just lit up some candles to help absorb the smell in the house. sarap kasing isawsaw sa sukang may labuyo.

belle, dried squid does stink but tastes heavenly. love it also dipped in vinegar with chilies
