SLERS’ Story

For Kagay-anons who want to experience an all-out gourmet meal (minus the expensive price that you usually pay at fancy restaurants), SLERS Express Meals is a must-try. SLERS is one of CDO’s reputable establishments. From its inception in 1969, this personal culinary endeavor of Fely Pelaez became a flourishing industry. SLERS is known across the whole country for its delicious and home-made Christmas hams (Jamon de Cagayan) and crunchy chicharon (Pica-Pica).

From selling hams, SLERS took a huge change in their business by offering additional products such as tocino, chorizo, longganisa, sweet ham, chicken loaf, country bacon, and even beef pastrami. In 2001, after successfully diversifying its products, SLERS came with another brilliant idea, and that is to open a cafe. SLERS’ owner—specifically her daughter Lilit—decided to open a cafe where people can try the company’s ham in a form of sandwich and combo dishes and this is when their Express Meal was realized.
