24 Oct2007

I know that quite a few of Marketmanila’s Manila-based readers are in the food business. Over the years, I have gotten tips on where to buy things, offers to test out home made baked goods and lots of questions and answers re: food products in general. I know some readers own small stores, small bakeshops, sell home-made foodstuff, gift items, meats, seafood, etc. So despite the fact that I do not typically accept any advertising, this post is your chance to briefly describe what you are selling and how Marketmanila readers or potential customers can contact you. Please don’t be shy, after all, this is about as ideal a target market as you can find… several thousand foodies or food enthusiasts, mostly aged 20-50 years old, 75% female and 25% male, relatively affluent, articulate, discriminating folks may just want to give your products a try. And with the holidays fast approaching, many are in need of interesting ideas, new sources and tasty options.

So here are some basic rules. If you are in a small food or food related business (small retail operations with say up to three branches or so) that you think readers would like to hear about, leave a brief comment detailing the name of the business, the types of products sold, contact addresses, telephone numbers and email links or addresses: For example:

Marketman’s Artisanal Jams & Jellies

Jams & Preserves made with only the finest natural ingredients. Currently offering Vintage 2007 Mangosteen Jam, Mango Preserves, Guava Jelly and Kalamansi Marmalade in 300 and 500 gram jars. Prices range from PHP500 to 5,000 (hahaha).

Please contact xxxxxx at xxxxx

So, comment away. As always, I reserve the right to delete or edit any inappropriate comments. Please feel free to tell us about your business located anywhere in the Philippines… or even abroad if you think that makes sense. Thanks!

    I am not in any food industry related business. Food is my deep passion and my only indulgence on this face of the earth. Although, it has been my ultimate dream to run my own bakeshop – I cannot drop my feet and quit my job. There are so many factors and other perks I cannot just give up to pursue my whimsical bakeshop and sandwich place. First, and foremost, I am a human being where times hit me where I will be in my cozy bed sleeping for two days and three nights except for occasional use of the bathroom and food. If I run my own bakeshop I cannot be doing that. I have lease to worry about and employees to pay. Since the operation is a cash-basis I have to man the cash register before I will purge out by my cashier. I wish I have enough courage to tackle my dreams of owning my own bakeshop.

    Thank you MM for this. I’ve been looking for Christmas gift ideas. In the past, I’ve given the following away: Goldilocks products; Sugarhouse meringue; Cello’s donuts, etc

    I suggest that those who leave comments re a product send you a sample of what they have to offer so that you can give it your thumbs up or thumbs down. Just a thought.

    My mom-in-law makes good espasol and pastillas de leche from pure cow’s milk, that they raise in San Ildefonso, Bulacan. The pastillas come in 3 flavors from fresh ingredients – natural, dayap, and langka.

    Some of you may have encountered the Lorrie’s Sweets brand on past food fairs at World Trade Center and Megamall. They were also featured before in Magandang Umaga Bayan and Entrepreneur magazine. Recently, these sweets were served in Makati Shangri-La’s dessert buffet station.

    Even people in Hk are wary about Chinese products. A lot of expats buy Aussie items, which are quite expensive. I even heard a story about a Pinoy driver substituting Aussie labels for poultry from China for his crooked boss. :(

    If you are in the east area (Robinson’s Metro East) try the Belly Burst on the first floor near the supermarket entrance- they make tasty bite-sized burgers (3 pcs. to an order), chickenbursts, pizzabursts (a smallish calzone) with marinara sauce and doughbursts (a cool sunburst-shaped donut), as well as buffalo wings and nachos adapted to the Pinoy taste and budget. Yummy stuff to take home as pasalubong to hungry family members. It might be possible to order uncooked stuff by the bulk and freeze them then serve for your next cocktail party, sleepover, or gathering.

    Thanks MM!

    Hi MM,sorry if this is off-topic,but,I just want to let you know that we ordered 150-200 Ilocano-made teatowels that you blogged about last June to give away to friends for Christmas.

    Hi MM and “Commentors”,
    I’m just someone who likes to slave in the kitchen. I’m proud of my shpeherd’s pie and chili. I also make caramelpecan squares, pecan or walnut pie, bread pudding. Reasonably priced. You can email me at zabanilla@yahoo.com so I can send you my “flyer” with some pictures.

    MM, because of you, I’ve just ordered 2nd hand Maida Heatter books over Amazon. I would’ve loved the Alice Medrich Cookies and Brownies Book but I balked at the $99 price tag. Sigh, maybe when I’m rich and famous. I’ll let you know how my Maida Baking Madness turns out.

  32. artisan chocolatier says:

    “She sent for one of those squat plump little cakes called “petites madeleines,” which look as though they had been molded in the fluted valve of a scallop shell … I raised to my lips a spoonful of the tea in which I had soaked a morsel of the cake. No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure invaded my senses …” – Passage from “Remembrance of Things Past”

    Marcel Proust, the great French author put Madeleines on the map with the above passage and perhaps on the counter of every Starbucks. The Madeleine is a traditional French sweet, distinguished by its shell-like shape and delicate cake-like texture, it is a staple of eternal youth.

    The quintessential French sweet, the classic Madeleine is a balance of buttery decadence and crumbly texture. A perfect complement to coffee, tea, ice-cream or a back-from-school snack, adults and children alike will be transported to Paris with each bite.

    We make Madeleines (about 3″ long and approximately 20g. each) in the following flavors: Vanilla, Lemon, Chocolate and Chocolate-Dipped Vanilla. Our Madeleines are handcrafted with the finest natural ingredients and flavorings. Price at PHP50.00 for a pack of 3 for the Vanilla, Lemon, and Chocolate variety. And PHP60.00 for the Chocolate-Dipped Vanilla also for a pack of 3’s.

    We market our Madeleines under the brand name “SWEET MELISSA” and is available in Metro Cebu (we can arrange shipping too). Call or Text (928) 984-3609

    ALLERGY ALERT: We use nuts in our kitchen for our other products and the possibility of nuts traces is very possible. If you have nut allergies we recommend you refrain from eating any of our products.

    Hi MM,

    I agree with Em Dy’s suggestion “that those who leave comments re a product send you a sample of what they have to offer so that you can give it your thumbs up or thumbs down.”

    I’ve been meaning to request if you would oblige me by giving my cakes a taste test. My butter cake and fruitcake are popular with friends but I am not bold enough to offer them to your readers. Please give them a try. Your opinion matters a lot to me. I shall deliver them to you whenever you say. Thanks a lot for considering my request.

  36. Marketman says:

    Sorry Tina and Em, if I accepted all of the food products offered for “testing” I would be 350 pounds! :) Actually, I decline those offers because mine is only one mouth…and usually good home baked products are built up by word of mouth(s), usually from hundreds of folks who have tasted something and liked it… I try to write MY own reaction to a food product, dish, etc. as I naturally come across it. Sometimes I seek it out and with this list, I am sure to order some items!

    Am enjoying reading about all the stuff available to order and eat. Apologies if we’re not allowed to plug, but Ricky of Dulcelin also makes great pulled pork for sandwiches.

    Thanks for this chance to advert, MM :)

    I’m not in the food business, but my hubby is– he and his brother own a resto called Wonton. They have three branches now, at Wilson St, Promenade and Shoppesville, all in the San Juan/Greenhills area.

    I’d like to think I’m not biased ;) They have reaaaally good shrimp wonton soup! It’s a very ‘clean’ soup, different from other Chinese soups. They also have frozen siomai, dumplings, etc. to go, perfect for giveaway for the holiday season :)

    Do call 722-2396 or 727-2183 for inquiries or for delivery, or drop by the restos :)

    A WORD OF CAUTION FOR SUPPLIERS. Marketman tries not to accept freebies at all. I just had someone try to order some of the goodies featured here and the very nice and well meaning supplier offered to send it for free, at which point the order-er decided not to get the products instead. I know you were just trying to be nice, but please let me pay for the stuff… I also say this because for all you know any Tom, Dick & Harry or Procopio, Juan & Jose might call you up claiming to be me, when they are not. In this case, I had to use “Marketman” only because it was to be dropped off at a hotel and my wife didn’t want to leave her name… so please, provide the same treatment, regardless of customer. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    Can you to tell a true hand crafted bread from one that is just called artisan?

    Just look at the ingredients. There shouldn’t be anything in bread besides flour, water salt and yeast. If the bread is made with a sourdough there may not even be yeast in the ingredients. Flavored breads may list other recognisable ingredients like nuts, garlic, herbs or cheese. All of the ingredients should sound like familiar foods. Remember you are buying one of the oldest most basic foods there is. It wasn’t necessary to add chemicals to bread for centuries and it still isn’t.

    At Pan Di Mio – Artisan Breads, we make bread the old fashion way. We hand craft them!!!

    We treat our breads like wine and cheese….we give our breads all the time it needs to develop its unique flavor. We make starter doughs (sourdough, poolish, and biga) and pre-ferment the yeast before mixing it to the main dough. We developed our sourdough starter from the natural bacteria in the air around the mountains of Cebu where our shop is located. We also do not use instant yeast. We allow our bread to rise at least twice before we shape and proof them.
    As you can see, it takes at least a day to make one of our breads.

    Some of the breads we make are:

    Baguette, Fougasse, Couronne, Pain de Campagne, Pain D’Epi, Ciabatta, Sourdough, Cinnamon Raisin, Pan de Muerto, Bolo-Rei, Panettone, Challah, Salzbrezeln, Muesli, Pain poilane, Brioche, Pane di Ramerino, Focaccia, Pane al Cioccolato, Irish Soda, and Beer (Yes, San Miguel Beer Bread).

    MM, i have a suggestion. When the craziness of the marketman shirts id over, why not have an EB wherein we (meaning those who are not very brave to go fully commercial) can bring our foodstuff and fellow “commentors” here can serve as focus group tasters? That way, many folks get to sample the products and you don’t have to gain 350 lbs.! And we get their valuable input. =)

    And it is generous of you to do this. Thanks.

No..again..no please no teabags as some sales clerk would insist on trying to convince me to buy their stuff. My family are tea drinkers and our ice tea comes freshly brewed everyday. No artificial powdered teas for us if we can help it>thanks MM. Maybe this site will be of help.

    I’d like to get the words out and “promote” my brother’s new business venture. It’s a food stall at St. Francis Square Food Court which is by SM Megamall. The name is “Gabbo’s”. They serve really rich comfort foods like kaldereta, lapu-lapu in sweet sour sauce or black bean sauce, stuffed sugpo…(and I’m not just saying it because he’s my brother. The food is home-cooked, fresh and reasonably priced!). Sometimes my mom even makes her special family-secret cakes and dishes like her award-winning coffee mangosteen cake complete with crushed mangosteen seeds, fresh lumpiang ubod with homemade wrapper, fresh ubod and garlic-peanut sauce all cooked to perfection!)

    I hope you guys will give it a try when you’re in the area.

    do you sell your sourdough starter? I started mine but i dont think we get good natural yeast here in manila… I even tried to use organic ground whole wheat flour and unbleached organic bread flour but to no avail…


    Oct 26, 2007 | 6:36 pm

  74. artisan chocolatier says:

    inked_chef, you can “kick-start” your sourdough starter by adding some active yeast (or instant yeast) to your initial sourdough. After 48 hours, you discard 1 cup of the sourdough and replace with half cup water and 1 cup flour. This process should be done daily if you dont use the sourdough starter. I recommend you start using the sourdough for bread only after about a week from when you started. The sweet sour flavor at that time will start to be evident.

    I have no problem giving you some of my sourdough at no cost. It might just be too much of trouble to you explaining to the airport guard what it is. Remember the trouble Marketman had with his sea salt?

    thanks artisan … i also tried using grapes as a starter. what hydration are you using for your starter? if its acting up too much do you put your starter in the chiller to retard the yeast reaction? do you keep it in the chiller or just out in the open?

    as for the seasalt MM … i saw that you drove to ilocos recently… did you get any salt from up north? they have sea salt which is very similar in texture and taste as maldon sea salt…

    Oct 27, 2007 | 6:19 am

  79. artisan chocolatier says:

    inked_chef…i keep my starter out in the open (by a window). I have a paper towel as a cover. When it is hyper-active (especially after replacement or right before it rains) I stir the dough as ofter as necessary to knock it down. I use regular tap water. The water in manila might be too chlorinated or if you have a water softener, I suggest you use bottled water instead.

    Hi inked_chef, I’ve been baking sourdough like crazy lately and so thrilled that at last I can have fresh bread at home. I have a “mother” that I keep in the fridge and I feed it once a week. I’ve had so much “babies” and have offered it to some friends but there are no takers. I would gladly give you some if you can find a way to get it from Bacolod. Btw, my starter is from SF.

    Oct 27, 2007 | 6:55 am

  81. inked_chef says:

    hchie … wow thanks for the offer…. i might have to take a trip to bacolod to pick up one of your “babies” did you buy your mother online? wait that sounds a bit weird heheheheh

    Artisan …. yes i use bottled water … starter a new batch tomorrow…. the saga continues to start my own sourdough starter… thanks for the tips

  84. artisan chocolatier says:

    inked_chef and hcie….the starter dough will change in taste and character as soon as you take it out from its locality. The reason being that the airborne bacteria of the current area will take over the previous one.

    If I bring my sourdough from Cebu to Bacolod, It will change character and taste within a week. And if after that I bring the same starter to Manila, it will also change and develop a new flavor and character. In the same way that if you bring SF sourdough to L.A. or even just across the bay to berkeley, it will also change.

    Oct 27, 2007 | 4:17 pm

  85. inked_chef says:

    artisan … thanks for the info… im not sure if there are any natural yeast in the manila air!! There might be bacteria but not the good kind.. anyway im going to start three kinds of starters during the long holiday and see where it goes. i saw an article from a sourdough blog community in australia and might replicate the experiment.

The one-way valve is necesary the prevent the bursting of the bag due to the gradual release of Carbon Dioxide gas by fresh-roast coffee).

    Onie, Mila et al… thank goodness the cakes are available, I was already searching for a coffee cake base to mix with homemade mangosteen jam to see if I could approximate it…now it’s just easier to buy it ! :)

    Thank you to all those who tried my mom’s coffee mangosteen cake. Personally, this cake is a piece of heaven and hopefully it will please MM readers’ discriminating taste! According to my mom (who is also a proud Cebuano!), this cake is from her collection of award-winning recipes dating back from the 1960’s. Everytime my mom serves this cake at any gathering, it never fails to be the crowd’s favourite dessert. However, since we are just in the initial phase of introducing the cake to the public, please feel free to give your feedback and suggestions…Thanks again Marketman for this opportunity!

    Nov 3, 2007 | 12:07 pm

  113. Myra P. says:

    HI Onie, i just ate a big chunk of your mom’s cake :) Still licking the icing off the fork… The cake was soft and moist, and the icing was deliciously unique (were those crushed nuts in the icing that added texture?). If i could give my suggestions, I’d say amp up the coffee flavor in the cake and increase the mangosteen chunks in the icing. With these changes, your cost may go up, but as is, P300 is such a deal that you can increase a bit and it will still be great value.

    I love the homemade look of the cake, but a little more symmetry and uniformity will go a long way to making the cake look gift-worthy for this coming Christmas :)

    Nov 4, 2007 | 6:54 pm

  114. solraya says:


    The moment I got off Merville, I headed to the nearest gas station to get myself plastic fork at the convenience store. It was rich, light, bitter and sweet all at the same time :)The coffee mangosteen was different in ice cream flavor.

    I thought I will have the cake all to myself as the play of coffee and mangosteen may not appeal to some. Well, hubby didn’t notice my plastic fork in the box. When I opened it this afternoon…another fork was trying to hide in the box hahahhahaha. Looks like someone else was trying to trick me from my treasure :)

    I will make coffee tonight to go with my big slice.

    Nov 4, 2007 | 8:26 pm

  115. Onie says:

    Myra & Solraya, thank your for your feedback & anecdote! Glad you enjoyed the cake! I’ve emailed your suggestions to my bro, ie. more coffee flavor & mangosteen chunks and the homemade look.

    To answer your question – the added texture to the icing are crushed mangosteen seeds! Way better than nuts :)

    Nov 4, 2007 | 11:22 pm

  116. Myra P. says:

    Crushed mangosteen seeds???? That’s so interesting, who would’ve thought :) Btw, just had another chunk of cake.

    Nov 5, 2007 | 3:08 am

  117. t_rex says:


    Seems like your mom’s Coffee Mangosteen Cake is emerging as the runaway hit in this post by MM.

    I’m not surprised after getting 2 cakes last night from your brother Pito’s digs in Merville.

    The one thing that struck me is the good value for money with your intro price of P300. Pito said they might have to increase by P50 soon – still fine by me.

    I agree with most of the aforementioned comments – the cake is quite a pleasant play of contrasts. And it appealed to both kids and adults. I find the flavor as not really similar to that ice cream flavor of yore – fact is, it is richer, indulgent even, in a homey way. I discerned right away the crushed mangosteen seeds in the frosting – that is a stroke of genius on your mom’s part. It is an interesting foil to the otherwise cloying sweetness of the mocha frosting – hands down it upped the cake’s unique appeal. Would you believe I ate one-sixth of a whole cake in just one sitting, and I’m a weight watcher at that?

    I have to disagree though with the suggestion to increase the coffee flavor of the chiffon cake layers. Doing so might overwhelm the subtle fruitiness of the mangosteen bits in this confection.

    My main goat is with the packaging which I hope will be improved soon as Pito averred. The oversized plain boxes and improvised cakeboards which contained my order were a bit tacky when I brought them straigt to a potluck gathering upon pick-up. Plus some of the frosting ended up on the box lid because there was barely any clearance.

    Ditto for the appearance – although the homemade look is quite appealing, it can use a few enhancements as a premium for gift-giving. Among others, the frosting should be slathered on the cake more evenly all over. Perhaps an artistic sprinkling of those crushed mangosteen seeds on top can do wonders. And exactly how long can it stay at room temperature?

    Overall, this is still a prized find. As I’ve said, I am not wondering why this cake inadvertently ended up as seemingly the single most popular product in this post.

    Nov 5, 2007 | 4:36 am

  118. Myra P. says:

    t_rex, one-sixth of that whole three-layer cake? And I thought I was bad, having two servings in one night (I’m a weight watcher too). Do you think that this cake would do well as only 2 layers? Then there wouldnt be an issue about clearance on top, and the cake will be wider and occupy more of the cake box. Good idea too, to sprinkle something on top for added aesthetic. Maybe another option is some preserved mangosteen fruit.

    Nov 5, 2007 | 12:40 pm

  119. solraya says:

    When I had to buy plastic fork to “taste” the cake….that was an understatement. I must have had 1/6 too! Waitwatcher here too….been waiting too long now.

    More coffee? Maybe not. Would prefer more the crushed seeds.

    I had the same problem too about have the icing on the wax paper on the lid. I didn’t see the clearance problem, thought it was because the wax paper stapled to the lid, got off and ended up atop the cake. I just wiped the icing off the paper and loved it :)

    Onie, did your mom use bought jam? If not, maybe she can use more pulp. It can get very sweet when it gets to the Mangosteen part.

    I’ve read a lot about black sesame seeds and i heard they’re becoming a huge trend in Asia nowadays. I’ve tried black sesame seed ice cream and it tastes delicious. Knowing you are offering other desserts made out of that ingredient sounds really interesting. I want to know the texture and taste of your brownies (crunchy/chewy/chocolatey/black sesame-ish) and where do you guys deliver.

    Can I have a free taste as well?

  121. Myra P. says:

    solraya, LOL@ “waitwatcher” — Btw, I refused to tell my relatives where I found this cake so I can be the only one to give it as a gift this xmas. Many had never heard of the combo before, but somehow, I remember it from my childhood. And Im only in my early 30’s, so it couldnt have gone out of style too long ago. Methinks my Titas and Titas will get a kick out of recieving these.

  122. Onie says:

    T_Rex, I apologize for the packaging disaster. My brother was ill-prepared for the orders as he was only occassionally selling the cake by the piece at his food court. He is currently working on improving the packaging! Hope the orders keep coming :)

    Coffee Mangosteen cake can be left out at room temperature for a limited time- two to four hours indoors. Keep it in the refrigerator, especially in warm weather. It stays pretty good there for up to 3 – 4 days. Any longer than that and it’ll be drying out. But then again, a cake this good wouldn’t have time to go bad.

    Solraya, mangosteen jam [from Sitsirya :)] was used for the cake.

    Thank you again for your invaluable input!

    Lemon’s Kitchen Marmalade

    This homemade kalamansi marmalade takes the combination of sweetness, tangy taste and bitterness to a most delightful level. With plenty of real pulp and thin chucks of rind, it is purer in taste, cozier in flavor and texturally more exciting than the gooey jams in the market.

    No artificial preservatives or thickeners, leaving more of the authentic citrus flavor.

    Great for crackers, wheat bread, toast, muffins or bagels, it also cries out to be used in desserts and dishes.

    Ideal as giveaways in parties and events, or as warm gifts to friends and family.

    It sells at P120 a bottle that comes in a giftable package.

    A note to overzealous commenters. There was just an attempt to “stuff” the comments box with glaring reviews of one product. I DO NOT appreciate this behavior. It is quite obvious from the timing of the comments, the lateness of the comments, the sources of the comments and the lack of working emails, that this was a blatant and stupid attempt to sway readers into trying one of the products earlier listed above. As a result, all of the recent, in my opinion, comment stuffers AND the original post on the products have been deleted. THAT WAS A DUMB MOVE INDEED. Don’t mess with Marketman, and don’t abuse this post which was meant as a service to the readers. You are lucky I don’t do a post on why readers SHOULD NOT try your products…that is the kind of PR you definitely do not want.

    Hi. Sorry if I have to send you this message thru MM’s blog – I don’t know your email address or any other way to get in touch with you.

    I ordered 2 more Coffee Mangosteen Cakes last Sunday November 11 as my potluck contribution to a despedida party for a dear aunt who I know likes that ice cream flavor of long ago. I finally got to meet your mother when I picked up my order – she is such a charming, down to earth lady. And so tickled pink when I told her my admiration for her masterpiece.

    Would just like to give you my feedback anew. The packaging is definitely much better and appropriate this time. People at the party as expected liked the cake flavor a lot. I noticed though that the cake layers are not as moist and dense as the first ones I got. My wife even commented that it was quite dry along the sides. Maybe it stayed in the oven a bit too long? Whatever the cause for this, I hope it will be addressed soon. It is important for the quality of your now popular cake to be kept consistent at all times – it is after all a really good concept.

    MM, hope you don’t mind my posting this message. This is not meant to push the above mentioned product, just a feedback for one of your regular readers. Thanks.

    I can only guess what went wrong. I can assure you that quality is of utmost importance to my mom and that is the reason she bakes the cakes herself. If it’s ok with you, can I have my brother get in touch with you? Maybe we can replace the cake?

    So as not to monopolize this post, you can email future comments, requests, suggestions to: jsolis8254@shaw.ca. Although I am miles away, I will make sure that every bit is conveyed to my mom and brother.

    Thanks again for your feedback.

    Greetings MM!

    Since my business is electronically based (in some ways, haha!), I think I owe my partial success. Since I’ve posted here, I have been recieving inquiries about the Royce Chocolate, Kyocera and Global Knives. Most of us who even posted months ago are still recieving a lot of inquiries. I’d like to be honest and I apologize to some of your avid readers because my stock is so limited and at times indent especially with the perishables.

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for your site (I’ve read your “HIGH BLOOD” comments, haha!), and the passion you have for food in general for you to maintain such a well-opinionated, (or maybe because I’m Hype-Allrgic as well), resourceful and delicious blog read.

    Til your next entry, Merry Christmas MM!!!

    where can i buy jams/jellies/marmalades in mini (30-50g) bottles? when i search the web, i come across foreign brands only. surely, meron nito sa pinas. plan to give these away as a party souvenir. thanks

    Sep 15, 2008 | 12:24 pm

  174. Marketman says:

    winter, I have never seen small giveaway sized jams in the local market, or at least locally produced… I think it may have to do with a lack of the appropriate packaging (small bottles).
