Camiguin: Vjandep Pastel - Buns with Filling

Camiguin's Vjandep Pastel

Early Christmas treats are starting to pour in, take the famous pasalubong from Cagayan de Oro City. The very first time I tasted this melt-in-your-mouth pastel buns was when my sister had her thesis in Camiguin, stayed and explored the virgin island of Camiguin for almost a month. But nowadays, Vjandep Pastel is already available elsewhere here in Metro Manila, frequently seen in Market! Market! along the arrays of booths of "pasalubong" from the country's sub-regions. But still we wanted every pasalubong fresh and hot from its original birthplace, travelers from Cebu, Bohol and nearby provinces would not miss a thing except the famous boxes of Vjandep. They're ready for the holidays!
