It is common for me to encounter hopia that are sold in different flavors but I never thought that otap is also available in different flavors. That is why I am surprised when my brother brought home packs of otap that are in different flavors.

For those who are wondering, otap is an oval biscuit that is quite thin and fragile. That is why otap is eaten very carefully to avoid it from being shattered into bits and scattered to the floor. Otap is a biscuit famous in Cebu and many people coming from that island buy otap as their pasalubong.

My brother brought the otap made by Magic Melt. The flavor that he brought is the ube flavored otap and the regular otap.
.

Well, the otap of Magic Melt is ok but I believe that there are better kinds or brands otap that can be bought from Cebu. If I ever return to Cebu, I will try to find the best shop to buy some otap.

    @Simple Things:

    Yeah. This is really delicious. ^_^

    But I think I like the original otap better.

    @Blue:

    Tamang tama nga yan. Isawsaw mo sa kape. Sa sobrang tamis na ito eh hindi mo na kailangang lagyan ng asukal kape mo.

    @Patty:

    Patty naman eh... :-P Hindi hopia yan. Malayo ang lasa niyan sa hopia. More of biscuit siya na ube flavored. Punta ka sa Cebu at bili ka at magugustuhan mo itong Otap.

  12. patty April 10, 2011 at 5:32 PM  

    wala ba sa bulacan ng otap ube? haha. layo naman ish! :)

  13. Ishmael Fischer Ahab April 11, 2011 at 8:39 AM  

    Hmmm...meron ka naman sigurong mabibili sa mga malls. Magic Melt naman nagbebenta nito eh. :-D

    not familiar with magic melt, though. hehe. ui ish. bat ganun website mo. pag walang www un tinype na url mo. di madirect sa website mo.. maybe u should fix it. im not sure din kung sakin lang.

    patty

    ^_^ Ako rin eh. Lately ko lang din naman nalaman yang magic melt na yan.

    Oo nga no. Pasaway na GoDaddy yan. Imbes na i-direct sa website ko eh binebenta pa nila yung ahabreviewsandtips.com.

    Sa tingin ko ang solution diyan ay bilhin ko yung ahabreviewsandtips.com.

    Hi.

    I have actually been looking for an OTAP Recipe. Do you have one? Can share with me please?

    Thanks.

  17. Ishmael Fischer Ahab July 8, 2011 at 10:59 AM  

    Hello Jack,

    I am very sorry. I don't have any recipe for Otap. What I only have here the otap from Magic Melt and I don't have any recipe for making their otap.

    I am sorry. I will tell you about some otap recipes if I encounter them.

  18. Jack July 11, 2011 at 1:03 PM  

    That's ok Ishmael.
    The Otap recipe is indeed very difficult to find.

    I'll just drop by your website once in a while to see if you got the recipe already. :-)

    Thanks man.
