Tatak Iligan Pasalubong Items

Pasalubong from Iligan City

Buying pasalubong for our loved ones is an act of extending them the mouthwatering culinary experience and the great adventures we had during our travel. We want to make sure that although they may not see the sights we see nor experience every little things we had in a day, at least, they would also experience the product unique to a certain place. 

For years, I only knew two products that are locally made which I could buy as pasalubong from Iligan City. I bet that you guys know that I'm referring to Cheding's Peanuts and Sukang Pinakurat as these are widely available in the market. Apparently, there are other 'tatak-Iligan' pasalubong items that we can take home for our loved ones.

What and Where to Buy Pasalubong from Iligan City

Heaven's Bakehaus. This humble company started with baking and selling made-to-order piaya, known now as Piaya de Iligan. Later as the company started to grow, they expand to making other Filipino delicacies such as Pastel, ube kisses and butter cookies. It's also worth to note that these locally-made products are efforts of out-of-school youth and single moms who are trained under the umbrella of Heaven's Bakehaus.

Products to buy:

  • Piaya de Iligan. What differs this one from that of Bacolod's is the packaging. One box contains 8 packs with two piaya each. This is in order to avoid contamination since the product has no added preservatives. As for the taste, their piaya comes in a crispy dough filled with different flavors like muscovado, durian and purple yam.
  • Mabuhay Pastel. Reminiscent to that of Camiguin's but all of the ingredients in baking this are all sourced out from Iligan.
  • Ube Kisses. This is a special purple yam hopia and is the only ube kisses that we have in the Philippines.
  • Peanut Cookies. Inspired from Lola Cheding's Peanuts, this small oval-shaped cookie is baked to melt in your mouth. As my blogger bestie puts it, "It's very tasty, like the taste is something to remember."
