Torta: Argao’s Best

On our way back to the city from Oslob, we dropped by the town of Argao to grab some snacks. Of course, we went to Chitang’s to buy their famous Torta de Argao. The Torta of Argao is very popular because of its distinct taste (they say one special ingredient is the bahalina/tuba.) Tourists, out-of-towners, and even locals also frequent Chitang’s for other favorite delicacies like podreda, tostado, and piñato!

Chitang’s slogan “Magkabahaw Magkalami” literally means than the torta becomes tastier as it becomes more and more unfresh/stale. 🙂

Anyway your trip to Oslob blog has whetted my appetite and whale or no whale the trip should be brilliant. Thank you for your blogs.
