Better price of danggit and drued pusit. Bought also dried dilis. They vacuum pack and can be pack by 1/4kg. They even packed it if bought of couple of items in a box.

Before buying dried fish and mangoes for pasalubong in Taboan market, go around and check the prices first to get the cheapest price. Do not forget to inspect what you are buying. There are small cockroaches and insects that are found in their open containers. I suggest that you buy to the stores located across the market, their stores and... More

You can buy many kind of this dishes. Plus, the crew will pack your salted fish in a way that the odor will not go out from the... More

You got to brave the strong smell that would stick to your clothes and skin. If you go there and is still planning to ho somewhere else after, it would be nice to brong extra... More

Come here ready to go home smelling like salted fish. Because that's what you will really smell like after your visit😊 if you don't like that, better skip the place. You go here to see all kinds of salted, dried sea creatures that they offer, buy (a lot cheaper compared to Manila price!), and simply marvel at how they actually... More

While on business trip, we went to this place to buy danggit and pusit to bring back to my family in Manila. We went to the first store on the right side and bought danggit and pusit. The store offers vacuum-packing, and the kilo of danggit and half-kilo of pusit that I bought were vacuum-packed in 1/4 kilo packages. This... More

Such a cheater! We went to IMB dried fish dealer. I had a cheating experience before already with them when i brought another group of friends from Manila. Since there was no stock of dried danggit in our "suki", we went to this store just next to our "suki". When our items were being weighed already, the quantity looked few.... More

Buying the famed danggit? This is the place to be! Here you'll find an amazing variety of dried seafood at the lowest prices. As of posting, 1 kilo of the best-tasting Bantayan danggit costs Php 400 to 600. Be warned though, the place reeks! Make sure to bring extra clothes, and inform the vendor to pack the goodies in a...
