Vjandep Pastel of Camiguin

Visiting the island of Camiguin, words come into my mind are lansones and pastel. My coworkers asked for lansones, it’s good they don’t know about the pastel. LOL.
Before our tour started we looked for the pastel, bun with filling, unfortunately it was raining so we proceed to our tour since it’s just a day tour.

After the tour we looked in Benoni Port, for some store selling pastel. It’s a bun with yema filling, the combination of the bun and the filling are perfect. I love it when it’s cold, that’s why I store it first in the fridge before eating. It’s perfect too for coffee or tea.

I learned that the name Vjandep is coined from the name of the couple owned this business, their names are  Virgilio Jose and Elena Popera (VJandEP), pronounced as vandep. You can read the tale of Vjandep pastel through this site. It’s a wonderful and inspiring story.

Now their stores are selling other products for pasalubong, even just for refreshment.
