1  Don Merto's Les Chocolateries Belgian Lace Cookies

Ultra-thin and crisp oatmeal lace cookies sandwiching a light layer of Belgian dark chocolate? Yes, please! Grab these popular cookies at Casa Escano Hotel. They come in dark, semi-dark, mint, and white chocolate flavors, too. 



2  Dark Chocolate-Dipped Dried Mangoes

Chewy Cebuano dried mangoes are even better when paired with dark chocolate. Pop into any pasalubong shop to find a pack (or more) of these. 



3  Salbaro

What makes these wafer-thin and crisp crackers different is its natural coconut taste. Cebu's salbaro is a flat oval cracker made with shredded coconut. Find them at Abaseria Cafe and Deli!

Bocas Modern Patisserie at Banilad Town Center deserves all the attention it gets. Find everything from light and delicate cheesecakes, to rich Malagos chocolate mousses, to perfectly crisp meringues!
