I was looking for pasalubong shops inside Ayala Center Cebu and I got surprised when I visited Aji Ichiban stores having must try regional delicacies as “Pasalubong”. In the Metro, Aji Ichiban usually boasts of candies sold per gram.

Pasalubong is the Filipino tradition of bringing a homecoming gift.I’ve been to Cebu for four days only last June hardly had time to visit famous delicacy shops like Shamrock but some of the goodies I found at Aji Ichiban were loved by my family.

Showing you now what was in my Pasalubong bag:
My personal favorite is the cinnamon flavored otap, a puffed pastrysprinkled with sugar. About otap: http://www.everythingcebu.com/bits-and-pieces/the-otap-as-a-snack/
Instead of the usual dried mangoes, why not buy dried bananas? It has the right sweetness and still tastes natural. These ones goes to my Nanay, Aki and Joey.
When I saw this box I remembered my sister Aki who’s so into baking! Too bad the family did not leave a piece for me to eat. I guess it just tasted so good.
Of course, some officemates would still crave for the dried mangoes (Im just too lazy to rotate)
I got this cute key chain for free, too!
Yeah, Food is more fun in the Philippines.
