Of course a visit to Cebu has to include a place where you can get your 'pasalubongs' our term for presents for those back home! This is an excellent place but you need to bargain!

One stop shop for goodies you can take home. There longganisa, dried seafood of every variety and pastries. You will have no shortage of choices. If youre going to another place after here be sure to change as the smell sticks to your clothes.

You'll get stinky sure, but if you love eating danggit or dried fish I think that's fine. All sorts of pasalubong is found here -- dried fish/squid, chorizo, dried mango, mango/tamarind balls, etc. Dried seafood are vacuum sealed. Don't forget your haggling skills.

Hi! Was not able to take pictures there. It's 400 pesos per kilo of dried mangoes. They can put it in a vacuum bag for you.
