Yea it must be. The only thing I have bought there is a few bags of bagels. Not the best ones in the world but passable if they are toasted and cream cheese added.

As far as some local goodies ;

Ocean City eatery's have what they call Panden Chicken (good breast meat, flavored with some sauce & wrapped in banana leaf strips) which is very good. An order of that along with an order of Garlic Rice makes an excellent meal.

Savory eatery's have Breaded & fried fish fillets (cream dory) in a mushroom sauce which when added to an order of rice makes a good meal too. One of the vendors(can't think of the name right now) in the food hall (upstairs) in the local SMCity also has some good fish fillets but with some corn sauce & with rice as a complete meal. Is very good and quite a bit less costly than the Savory offering.

I'm with you on that one.. have found Rustan's market in Ayala has really good breads, even including a rustic, a rye and a whole wheat sourdough.. all with good crust. And reasonable, if I recall about 100-150 per loaf. Fresh daily.

Despise the white bread here, YUK. I buy Gardenia high fiber wheat raisin bread at sm city. Very good taste & each slice has 30% of the Daily Required fiber one needs to keep things working smoothly through the gut. The older we get, the more we have to pay attention to things like that.

Santes has great food but expensive (all imported with the pick of local veggies) "but" have your American Express with you...it is expensive and the portions are small by americano standards.

S&R burgers are great on the grill just like back in the states. S&R pizza - 2 thumbs up

Australian lamb on the grill is also very good.. I have found the potato here sort of OK but the local grown carrots when sautéed in the pan very good...delicious actually. Most of the locally grown veggies are very good

I have grown quite fond of Japanese rice (imported read the label carefully lol)

Overall not bad especially when you find a few of the local dishes that hit the spot.

Preservatives - the way to go?

Fred, you need to consider what one of your fellow countrymen once said:
“Old people shouldn’t eat health foods. They need all the preservatives they can get”. ;)

Should have a head start on the preservative front, as I started drinking at 13 and didn't stop till I was 40 and stayed well 'pickled' most all that time. So now has been 39 years and counting since I got sober.
