    MONICA & JETT BAKESHOP: RODILLAS YEMA CAKE

    by davidjo Updated Nov 30, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were recently given a pasalobung (gift) of this delicious cake, so i thought that i would try and find where i can purchase one next time we are in Manila. I discovered that the couple who have the bakery in Tabayas tried and tried until they succeeded, the wife even going to work in Hong Kong while the husband perfected the cake, after going out of business once. So if visiting Tabayas try and locate the bakery, but also the cakes seem to be on sale at some of the shopping malls in Manila , such as Glorietta, Eastwood and Festival Mall.
    Please open the link to read about the success story.

    Shena's Pasalubong: "Longganisang Lucban"

    by tanamay Updated May 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They are dealer of quality "longganisa" (as their sign claims) and they make their own "longganisa" (native pork sausage) right at the back of their store.

    They are selling "longganisa", dried "pansit lucban", coconut "lambanog" and other "pasalubong" foodstuffs.

    What to buy: Buy the small "longganisa" or the longer (big) "longganisa".

    Warning! The "longganisa" have a strong smell and will permeate your car as you travel to Manila.
    Here's my packing tip:
    * You can wrap it in a succession of moist, dry, moist, dry newspaper.
    * You can prepare a container (tupperware, cooler) with tight cover.

    What to pay: Small = PHP 65 /dozen
    Big = PHP 130/dozen

    Kalye Budin (Emilio Jacinto St.): Longganisang Lucban (Native sausage)

    by tanamay Updated Mar 31, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost all "pasalubong" shops in "Kalye Budin" sell the small reddish (or not) "Longganisang Lucban", aside from native sweets & delicacies.

    Cook "longganisa" (sausage) by boiling in little water, pricking the intestine casing with fork, let the water dry and let the sausage cook in its own fat. It is cooked when the pan is almost dry and the aroma is wafting.

    What to buy: Small "Longganisang Lucban" or
    bigger "Longganisang Lucban"

    The longganisa smells, make sure you have provision in your car (like a portable ice chest ) to store and control the smell of the sausage.

    What to pay: Small = PHP 65 /dozen
    Big = PHP 130/dozen
