Budin or Cassava cake is a popular pasalubong in the Philippines. It is one of the most popular kakanin especially in the provinces. In Quezon, specifically in the town of Tayabas, there is street called Budin that is literally lined with stores that sell the kakanin, among other pasalubong.
In the town, there is also a local specialty called Pinais. It is like tamales but it is flat and is made of grated coconut and shrimp. Not bad.
Tayabas is a budding town that is less than 30 minutes away from the city proper of Lucena. Tricycles and jeepneys are the main mode of transportation here. Just ask around and you’ll definitely not miss Budin Street. You may also meet peddlers of Pinais along the way.
