|For an idea to be great, it has to have a reason.
Pinoydelikasi.com came about due to two standing ideals : First, to
provide a hassle-free option to the Filipino pasalubong tradition.
Second, to provide a quick and easy way for adventurers to experience
the Filipino local flavor.
The Pasalubong Tradition :
Filipino have this long-standing tradition of bringing back to
their loved ones treats they have found along their travels. These
treats they give as gifts upon returning home and these treats are
what they called pasalubong.
"Pasalubong" comes from the root word "salubong"
literally meaning, " to meet" and the prefix "pa"
connotes "for". So, pasalubong is practically a gift to
meet you with, or a meeting gift of sorts or present.
For in the Philippines, you cannot go on a long trip and return
home empty handed. You have to bring along some items from your
travels and present them to the people who are waiting for you back
With this continuous tradition, each Philippine region has adopted
and developed a string of specialized pasalubong all its own. Soon
enough, these pasalubong items have come to identify the place itself,
like Iloilo is to Biscocho, Cebu is to Dried Mangoes, and Bacolod
is to Piaya, and so on. And most pasalubong items are in the form
of food treats or delicacies.
You see Filipinos are a friendly lot, a friendly lot who love to
eat. So once they go out and travel, they bring home some treats
and present for them as gifts. Quite a happy tradition really except
for one problem - lugging along these pasalubong items while traveling
can be very burdensome!
And this is where Pinoydelikasi comes in. It is continued bring-home
tradition minus the perspiration!
With Pinoydelikasi, you can share pasalubong items to your loved
ones hassle-free. We can send them to you right at your doorsteps!

The Idea Behind the Name
Lutong Pinoy, Delicious Kasi ! That's Pinoydelikasi if it were
expressed completely. "Lutong Pinoy" or Filipino Cuisine
is composed of dishes, sweets, and pastries as varied as the regions
of the Philippine archipelago itself. And its taste comprises many
qualities, but all sum up to one word - delicious!
Pinoydelikasi aims to share this taste to as many people as possible.
Why? The reason is simple- because (because in Filipino is "kasi")
Filipino cooked and baked products are so delicious that you have
to taste them all yourself.
