Online Filipino Food Shopping: Epices du Monde


Hey, you! Today, I thought I would share with you a website I recently discovered and tested.


Living in France is great - I have no complaints. But living away from home is not always easy, especially when it comes to food and cooking. On days that I feel low, I know I have certain cravings. Usually for comfort food I grew up eating when I was a young girl. As much as I would love cooking those dishes, when one doesn't have the ingredients, especially the seasonings on-hand, it can be a bit tricky.


But if you're from the Philippines and you live in France like me, then this website is a lifesaver. Granted it doesn't have a lot of Filipino products, but there's already more than what I can find in Metz (which is nothing 😂😂). I was able to get Filipino soy sauce and vinegar and that's already huge for me!


It all started one quarantine day when I was curiously looking online for Filipino soy sauce. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled on what I was looking for. In fact, I didn't have much hope to find something online.


As I was browsing through, I found other Filipino products such as Cane Vinegar, Sinigang Powder, and Chicharon. I can't even remember the last time I had good Pinoy Chicharon! There was also Cheez-it Chips but unfortunately it was out of stock.


It all seemed too good to be true. So I looked at every inch of the website to check that everything was fine. You can never be too careful especially online. I saw that they have an actual physical shop somewhere in France. I ordered for a little over 20€, including the delivery fee. I didn't want to get for too expensive in case this was a trap.


Within 2 weeks, I received my order. I believe the delay was because of the pandemic situation which is obviously understandable.
