Unpacking your luggage and organizing pasalubongs after a vacation seems like a distant memory now. If you’ve been missing your travels or you’re craving for provincial delicacies, we got you covered. We’ve rounded up some stores that deliver Pinoy pasalubong treats across the Metro:

 

Vizco’s Strawberry Shortcake

A trip to Baguio isn’t complete without having a slice of Vizco’s moist strawberry shortcake (or maybe more) along Session Road. Love, Strawberry is a Quezon City-based online store that began delivering freshly-picked strawberries to help farmers in the Cordillera regions. Now, they also deliver different pasalubong from the region, including Vizco’s cakes.

Vizco’s cakes are available for delivery every Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. To reserve a slot and see prices, visit their Facebook page.

 

Laguna’s Original Buko Pie

Aside from being the home of Jose Rizal, scenic lakes and mountains, a booming local shoe scene, and different resorts for the summer, Laguna’s treats are a must-try. Some include espasol, kesong puti, and everyone’s favorite – buko pie. You can get a box of The Original Buko Pie fresh from Los Baños, Laguna via Pasig-based store, Hola Chubz.

Delivery is done via Lalamove. For orders, visit their page.

 

Bacolod’s Napoleones

Bacolod’s famous for savory dishes like chicken inasal and batchoy but their desserts are a must-try too. Napoleones are comprised of layers of puff pastry with sweet and creamy custard in between that bursts in your mouth. It’s made better with a white sugar glaze on top! Michelle’s Homemade Putong Ube carries Napoleones in their menu and you can place an order through their page.

 

Good Shepherd Ube Jam

Did you know that Mountain Maid Training Center, the group behind Baguio’s Good Shepherd products, has been providing treats and supporting education to Cordillera’s youth since 1952? Since then, they’ve become a beloved pasalubong everyone needs to bring home when visiting the City of Pines, with ube jam and peanut brittle as favorites.

You can find jars of ube jam through this page.

 

Durian Ice Cream

The Philippines is the home of many unique tropical fruits including durian, which grows prolifically in Davao. The fruit is known for its smelly scent that usually makes tourists stay away from it, but others who have fallen in love with the unique flavor of its custard-like flesh just can’t get enough of it. There are many ways to enjoy durian other than eating it fresh, like candy and ice cream. If you like durian, you can treat yourself with FIC’s gourmet durian ice cream! You can order them here.
