Hi Madman88

If I where you i would go to Carbon Market, they have a really good selection, the only thing is to watch your wallet alot of pick pockets.

Hi Madman88,

You can easily buy them all in the supermarket. But you can save a bit if you buy dried fish & squid in Taboan.

Carcar is unfortunately very far from Cebu City. It would take you at least an hour and a half drive to get there. In carcar you can buy chicharon, barquillos, ampao, bocarillo. But they are also available in major supermarkets (SM, Metro).

I just buy all my Cebu pasalubongs at the SM Supermarket where prices are fixed and have price tags. I used to go to a market selling all the pasalubong stuff but I discovered that they are more expensive than the supermarket prices for just the same brand.
