Here’s a Christmas gift discovery that your family and friends would surely appreciate- specialty local goods from Iloilo and Bacolod.

The Commissariat Manila through the ideas of siblings Gino Asensio Lopez and Monique Lopez Ong opened its doors just last July 2020 during the early days of the lockdown.

The tandem offers a variety, which includes pastries, cakes, chorizos, and seafood that are curated mostly from Negros Occidental’s Felicia’s Pastry Shop, a cultural piece since the 1970s.

Specialties are Ensaimadas, and Cheese Rolls. I got to have some and they can rival the best ones Metro Manila has to offer. These are baked fresh, and air-flown from Bacolod to Manila every week until December 18. You and I can still order in time for the merrier holidays.

The Commissariat Manila has prepared a lineup of limited edition Christmas sets featuring their Felicia’s Ensaimadas that come in a box of 6 (P1,215) or a box of 12 (P2,430), Felicia’s Cheese Rolls box of 16 (P1,420), cookies in can variants such as their Almond Crisps (P490), Lemon Thins (P425), Almondettes (P475), and their yummy Pili products such as their Pili Crumble (P675) and Turron de Pili (P585).

Due to the influx of orders, we advise that you plan and put in your pre-orders ahead of time to make sure that you get on The Commissariat Manila’s delivery list early. For advance placement of orders, please refer to the social media links below for the Felicia’s In Manila delivery schedule.
