Phil-Am Food Online Store


I was checking Filipino food stuff online and after a week of deciding which of these stores has the cheapest price and shipping. Some of the competitor's items are cheaper than the other, so it is really difficult to decide which one of them really offers  the best deal to the costumers. After days of checking out online stores, I decided to order at Phil Am Food (http://www.philamfood.com/) because of the flat rate shipping and not because they offer the lowest  price. I figured out, I saves a lot with a flat rate ground shipping of  $9.95 for the order of $25.00-49.99 that will be deliver right  in my door step.


 I ordered  online after Christmas and the package arrived on January 3. I opened the box to check if they sent me the right orders. The goodies are in good condition except for the rice flour, I ordered 2 packs and one of them has a little whole or a leak but over all, they were okay.

Well, here is my box full of my favorite products, rice noodles, banana catsup, dried taro leves, palabok and kare kare mix, rice flour, jelo, pancit luglug, sotanghon, pancit canton, tempura batter mix and sweet rice. My next order will be dried fish, frozen products and some canned goods.




I already cooked pansit bihon, laing  and kare kare. Happy me!

  6. the wonders of technology... isn't awesome? unlike before, Filipinos overseas can now order their favorite Pinoy foods online. Very convenient. Just make sure to give your feedback about that hole in the flour packaging so they'd be aware of it.

  10. Glad we have a walking distance Filipino store near our house, Seafood City is less than a mile. :)But I think this idea of ordering online is very convenient if you don't have a marketplace with Filipino stuffs near your place.

  12. Online stuffs like these are great addition to one's online experience. I mean, tools like these are what Internet is all about. It saves us time to go the actual market place to do the shopping and other things as well. This is also a relief to the OFWs who miss foods that can only be found in their respective countries.
