Your visit to Dumaguete City won’t be complete without trying out these 3 famous food items in the City - fried ice cream, silvanas and sans rival. They may not be native delicacies, but these are definitely a must-try!
One of the most popular food items that can be found in the city is the Fried Ice Cream. We asked some locals where we could find the best fried ice cream and almost everyone pointed us to Panda Ice Cream Store. We actually had a hard time finding it, but for those planning to try it out, it is located along Ma. Cristina Street, just a few steps from Silliman University's side gate.
It is basically an ice cream on a crispy breaded shell served immediately after frying. Incredibly, the ice cream inside is still frozen and hard.
We ate it with our hands as we munch on this delicious food experience. Price is 55 pesos for the first piece, and 45 pesos on your succeeding pieces.
Panda's fried ice cream is something unusual and it's worth trying.
Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries is a pastry shop where the popular Silvanas in Dumaguete are made. They have superior quality products sold at a very reasonable price. We went there at around after lunch. No surprise, there are a lot of people lining up for their products. Aside from their sans rival, they also offer set meals. We only tried the sans rival and silvanas since we just had lunch. Both are indeed delicious and they just melt in your mouth. Yummy!
The store is just near the boulevard at San Jose Street, walking distance from Siliman University.
This is part of my adventures in the provinces of Siquijor and Negros Oriental that happened last November 20-22, 2011 with my MBA friends, Clarice and Marvin. Negros Oriental is the 49th province on my list. Join us as we enjoy the "City of Gentle People" in this one awesome trip to Dumaguete City and Valencia, Negros Oriental.
