Best Pasalubong from Titay's of Lilo-an

I asked my Cebuana friend, Juvy, where is the best place to buy pasalubong in Cebu. Her instant answer is “Titay's”. I thought that Titay's is just a simple shop that sells pasalubong items like Colette's in Laguna. My initial idea of the place was instantly erased when I reached the shop of Titay's and saw that it was established in 1907.

Titay's is in the town of Liloan, which is located between the Danao City and Cebu City. Buses plying the two cities passes in front Titay's and the shop sometimes serves as a bus stop. You will know that you are near Titay's if you see the replica of Liloan Lighthouse located in the middle of the highway.

Titay's was established by Margarita “Na Titay” Frasco. The shop was then continued by her heirs, who zealously guarded the secret recipes of the founder. The shop is very famous for its rosquillos and other baked products like the otap and galletas.

Titay's is not just a bakery but it is also a restaurant. Passengers, who are weary of their long travel, can sit and relax. Weary travelers will truly feel relaxed inside Titay's because of their harpist. Sadly, I didn't heard their harpist play during my visit.

The reason I went to Titay's is to buy pasalubong for my family and friends. I bought two pasalubong packs of rosquillos, otap and galletas. Too bad that had I no more cash to buy the other pasalubong items. I'll buy those items the next time that I visit Cebu.

I only tasted Titay's rosquillos when I came back home. I was not disappointed and I just tasted the reason why Titay's rosquillos is so famous. The biscuit is sweet and melted in my mouth. It is no wonder that my parents and siblings ate most of the rosquillos in one sitting.

If you are visiting Liloan (Lilo-An) or passing by this town, I suggest that you drop by Titay's to taste their baked goodness. Discover why Titay's managed to exist for more than a century and continued to be popular in the province of Cebu.

  8. I asked my sister to bring me otap from Cebu but when it came I was disappointed this one is like a hard biscuit not the otap that I know from the 70's
