Pasalubong Options 2: Bacolod and Pampanga

1. Bacolod

Work found me in Bacolod a few months ago, and beyond the usual piaya and biscocho here are things that I tried and brought back home to Manila.
baye-baye is made of coconut meat, sugar, and pinipig.
sticky and grainy in texture,  the ones i tasted hinted of peanuts

merci pasalubongs are found all over the city, and this one is quite addicting

2. Pampanga

Pampanga is known for its good cooks, and this product affirms that. I did not travel to Pampanga for this one; it was brought to the office by a colleague. Joriel's cassava cake, a popular dessert, is soft, moist and rich. Cassava cake is made from manioc, a woody shrub cultivated for its edible tuberous root. It appears that Joriel's cassava cake is based in Mexco, Pampanga.
