Foodie Guide: What and Where to Eat in Marinduque

Go on a food trip around the “Heart of the Philippines”.

When it comes to pasalubong, Marinduque’s most famous souvenir item would have to be uraro or arrowroot cookies, as popularized by Rejano’s Bakery’s. These melt-in-your-mouth bite-sized cookies are made from arrowroot flour, a root crop abundant on the island. Arrowroot is said to be rich in fiber and offers a gluten-free substitute to the normal wheat flour used in bread. The top souvenir item comes in various flavors including original and pinipig flavors that come in boxes and canisters of varying sizes.
