Cebu Pasalubong / Souvenir Items

Filipinos are exceptional when it comes to thoughtfulness. We love to give presents even on regular days.

Returning home from a vacation in the tropical paradise of Cebu is not complete without pasalubong and souvenir items. Native delicacies, customized t-shirts, keychains and others are simple ways of showing we remembered our dear ones while on a trip.

Listed below are popular pasalubong items in Cebu.

Dried mangoes

If want to be extra sweet, healthy dried mangoes are ideal pasalubong for families and friends. These are sun dried ripe mangoes available in leading supermarkets and groceries in Cebu.

Chicharon (Pork skin cracklings)

Carcar City, a third class city in Cebu province is the best producer of chicharon. You can buy chicharon at regular supermarkets in varying sizes and experience its distinct taste– deep fried to perfection.


Another Cebu’s pride is dried danggit available in pasalubong centres and supermarkets and groceries. If you want adventure, try to visit Tabo-an market and find cheap priced danggit and other types of dried fish.


Titay’s Liloan Rosquillos and Delicacies Inc., is the leading producer of excellent quality rosquillos in Cebu. Today, rosquillos are widely available in different Cebu supermarkets. Titay’s branch is located at Raintree Mall, Mango Avenue, city of Cebu.


Otap is an oval pastry or biscuit. There are many local manufacturers of otap and three of the most popular makers are Shamrock, Titay’s Liloan Rosquillos and Delicacies Inc., and Magic Melt. Foods Inc. Otaps are widely available in minor and major supermarkets. Shamrock outlets are located at Mabini St., Cebu City and Fuente Osmeña, Cebu City.

Of course if you found a property for sale in Mactan and live in the Cebu Area then you could have all these delicious items every day or even buy a guitar to play at your homes in Cordova, Mactan or Cebu


There is no doubt that Cebuanos are talented. Mactan island is known to be the top producer of world class quality guitars made of narra and kamagong. SM City Cebu and Ayala are the ideal place to go for souvenir guitars. Affordable guitars are also available in Carbon guitar shops.
