No out of town trip is complete without finding the best deals in pasalubong. We asked Kuya Boyet to take us around town to hunt for stores that offer the most affordable trinkets and souvenirs for our friends and family.

Here is a list of the stores where we found the best deals in Baler:

1.     LRT Store

Location: Quezon St, Baler, Aurora

We loved their affordable shirts and key chains. They also have an extensive collection of ballers, ref magnets, local alcoholic beverages, spiced vinegar and coffee.

They offer the best deal in souvenir shirt at three for Php400. They also offer key chains, ballers, chips, coco jam and coffee. This is also where I saw a lexicon (Ak’kaw Poppo) of Baler’s many unique words.

6.       Baler Public Market

We made a special trip to Baler Public Market to find Biniklad na Dilis, which we loved so much when we tasted it in Costa Pacifica. Baler, being a coastal town, offers a variety of dried seafood produce. Biniklad na Dilis is indeed special – it’s quite expensive at Php700 a kilo. We bought one-fourth of a kilo of this dried fish that is unique to Baler.
