The tagline, Tangkilin ang Sariling Atin should apply to us Cebuanos even during the holidays. Why not when we have a lot of delicacies to flaunt to the world?
For the holidays, Everything Cebu urges you to replace your queso de Bola, Tikoy and chocolate chip cookies with these local delicacies perfect for Noche Buena and media noche.
CHICHARON - Although Chicharon isn't originally from Cebu, a version of the dish is most famous in Carcar. It's not even merely a pulutan or finger food but a delicacy that can be paired with rice. This holiday celebrations, you also have the option to use chicharon as one of your ingredients to pancit, bihon and many more.
OTAP - This crunchy baked biscuit wrapped in sugar is not only perfect for pasalubong but also as an added treat for the family during Noche buena and media noche. The nice thing about otap is that you can store it if you can't finish the whole thing. You can also always set it aside and eat it even after Christmas and New Year's eve. You may find yourself not getting enough of this snack.
BUDBUD - Instead of tikoy, buy budbud or suman. It's sticky so you're not really neglecting traditions. If you're on a budget this holidays, you can have more of this rice cake snack for a lower price. Partner budbud with brown sugar or chocolate and it's good to go. This can also be your instant breakfast after noche buena and media noche.
