One of the top reasons we love about visiting other countries is that we could have a bite out of their delicacies. And since the pandemic tampered with our travel plans this year, having these nummies at home could be quite comforting.

FamilyMart convenience stores are quite abundant in Metro Manila. Being a convenience chain from Japan, it is not surprising that you can purchase Japanese products at their stores, including snacks and ready-to-eat dishes.

If you prefer staying at home, you can also order their products online (via their website or GrabMart) or by contacting their number.
