This company has three branches in Cagayan de Oro, and is known for offering dishes with an authentic Kagay-anon touch. SLERS Café is actually part of SLERS Industries, a family-owned enterprise from Cagayan de Oro that produces smoked country hams, chicharon, chorizo, tocino, longganisa, bacon, smoked liempo, and a lot more.

Chicharon is one of SLERS’ signature products. It’s also one of Cagayan’s most popular pasalubong.  So it’s not surprising that SLERS has incorporated one of their bestselling products and made it into a delicious rice meal.


Have you ever thought of pairing hot steamed rice with crispy chicharon? It’s your time to do so. SLERS’ chicharice is made of fried rice and chunky pieces of chicharon. For only PHP 90.00, you can now enjoy this meal. Take note that this already comes with a free drink.2-Chicharice

Tocino Meal

Tocino meat is also popular in the Philippines, but this one that SLERS is offering is authentically made in Cagayan de Oro. Back in 1987, SLERS decided to diversify their products by introducing sweet meats, and that was when SLERS tocino was created.


All the ingredients, especially the meat used in making this tocino, come from CDO, so you can expect that it’s definitely not the same with the tocino you’ve tried from Pampanga. You can enjoy this meal for only PHP 100.00 (with drinks). And if you prefer this meal without a drink, order Tocino Solo for only PHP 90.00.



SLERS started out by selling country-style ham. What started out as a hobby back in the 60s is now one of the country’s most popular and well-loved hams. So, when you visit SLERS Cafe, it’s absolutely a must to try their hams and see for yourself why people just love them.Part of the diversification process that the company underwent back in 1987, SLERS decided to offer ham sandwiches as a way of reaching more people to try their hams. This was the time when Hamdesal became part of their Express Meals lineup.


Made with fresh pandesal and a delicious slice of SLERS ham, you’ll surely enjoy every bite of it. You can order a Hamdesal Solo (with no drinks) for only PHP 30.00, Hamdesal Meal with Drinks for PHP 50.00, and Hamdesal with Drinks and Mini Batchoy for PHP 70.00.


Perfect for the rainy season, or when you are just craving for a hot noodle soup. SLERS also offers batchoy in their Express Meal menu and it’s made with the freshest ingredients available—with veggies, meat, chicharon, and slices of hard-boiled eggs.


SLERS’ Mini Batchoy is only PHP 30.00. If you want a bigger serve, you can order either Batchoy (without drinks) for PHP 50.00 or Batchoy Meal with Drinks for only PHP 60.00.


Sisig is a popular pulutan, but guess what; it also goes well with lunch or even dinner. SLERS also offer Sisig on their menu and you’ll certainly enjoy it since it’s added with crunchy chicharon.

SLERS Express Meals: Your Favorite Filipino Meals Made Express

Taste the Goodness of Your All-Time Favorite SLERS Products at Affordable Prices

Before becoming a household name, SLERS started as a personal hobby of Ofelia Cosin Pelaez, or “Fely” as she is known to her friends and family. In 1969, Fely learned to make traditional smoked country hams in her home in Bukidnon. Soon after, friends and family began buying her hams for Christmas dinners.

Fely’s American-style ham became so popular that it quickly transformed from a simple hobby of a school teacher to a cottage industry, and eventually a family business that has become synonymous with high-quality hams and other meat products.


The name SLERS is actually an acronym of the nicknames of all five of Fely’s children; Shirley, Litlit, Earl, Ray, and Sharon. It was in 1987 when Fely and her husband moved to Cagayan de Oro to retire and Fely’s daughter, Litlit, or Mercedes Pelaez Mejia, took over the business.


The Transformation of SLERS Hams to a Multi-Product Enterprise

By the late 80s, SLERS began offering more than just American-style hams. With Litlit at the helm, SLERS started producing more diverse products, which began with the introduction of the SLERS Tocino, even though her mom Fely was initially against the idea.

Today, SLERS is one of the most successful family-owned companies in the country, offering a diverse menu, from their flagship ham, Jamon Cagayan de Oro, to a wide range of food products including pork barbecue, Tocino de Cagayan, fresh native chorizo, beef pastrami, smoked country bacon, and longganisa de Cagayan.

That’s not all.

For meat lovers who want to try the different SLERS products without having to buy an entire pack of smoked ham or a whole kilo of tocino, they offer the SLERS Express Meals diner. The place to go if you want to check out their high-quality food products or simply want to grab a bite of your favorite traditional Filipino meal.

The diner offers a great selection of different meat products prepared just the way you like it.


The SLERS Express Meals Menu at Student-Friendly Prices

Apart from the quality, SLERS is also known for the reasonable prices of their meat products. The express meal diner continues the tradition of providing topnotch food at affordable prices. Their student-friendly meals are among the most popular, since a large chunk of the diner’s clientele, and even their food stalls, are students.


Here are some of the food items you will find on their eclectic menu:


  • Hamdesal Sandwich – A popular item on the menu, the hamdesal sandwich is a delicious treat, combining the pandesal—a classic Filipino favorite—with a slice of SLERS sweet ham and fresh lettuce. It’s the perfect affordable meal for someone on the go.



  • Grilled Pork Belly – For any meat lover, the pork belly is one of the most beloved hog parts. You add SLERS’ time-tested preparation and cooking techniques in the mix, and you have a delicious and satisfying meal that’s not too heavy on the wallet.



  • Ham and Cheese Sandwich – A classic combo. SLERS quality ham and cheese stuffed in bread, is there anything else better?



  • Tocino Meal – Before Litlit first introduced the tocino back in the day, sweet meat was virtually unheard of in CDO. Today, it’s one of the most popular meat products among Kagay-anons, especially when it’s from SLERS.



  • Chicharice – Kagay-anons are among the biggest fans of SLERS chicharon, another creation that has made SLERS a truly multi-product business. And one of the reasons why it’s so popular is because it’s more than just a snack. SLERS chicharon is just as good, if not better, as a meal by pairing it with fried rice.



Those are just a few of the offerings you can find at the SLERS express meal diner. In addition, they also offer a couple of equally tasty desserts at very affordable prices; the coco banana flan and the buko pandan.


You can check out these delicious and affordable meals in one of two locations; at the ground floor of Gaisano City, along Corrales Ave. and at the South Bank Plaza Bldg., along the corner of Velez and Yacapin Streets.

So what are you waiting for? Call you friends and head over to SLERS Express Meals and fill your tummies with amazing dishes that are masterfully created and perfected by SLERS since 1969.
