The firstborn's request has been granted: pastel from CDO, dubbed locally as the City of Golden Friendship. A couple of days ago, my folks went to said city for reasons which I want keep mum. *winks* I clamored nonstop for pastel as their pasalubong.
J & A and Vjandep pastel -original yema flavor (gone in, uhm... 60 seconds)
Pastel are soft buns filled with yummy fillings such as yema, cheese, langka, macapuno, mango, pineapple or ube. Of course, I was specific about my penchant for Vjandep, the most popular pastel which originates in Camiguin. Another brand, J & A Pastel of Cagayan de Oro, is fast becoming a contender for the best pastel in town. A childhood friend confirmed this buzz through Facebook messaging. :)
