Pronounced as "Slurs" (like "slurry"), it was in 1969 when Fely Pelaez started cooking ham. From her hometown of Del Monte in Bukidnon, it is now one of the famous food places in Cagayan de Oro.
They have a store that sells different kinds of meat products - ham, bacon, tocino, beef pastrami. Brother has already tasted their Hamon de Cagayan, and texted me that it was delicious. I then asked him to take home some, but since it would be difficult to bring home some frozen meat products, he just brought home a diffent kind of Slers' product: the chicharon.
Special Chicharon, 180 grams. This has got to be the biggest chicharon I have ever seen! The bag actually looked as if it was a baby's bolster pillow, and the chunks were so big, we had to break some up so we could take a much nicer picture. :) It was delicious, but I guess one disadvantage of having big pieces in the bag was that it gets emptied fast, too!
Fiery Hot Chicharon, 60 grams. A much better tasting chicharon, if you ask me... I just love spicy foods! Well, this one I could either eat as is, or dip in regular vinegar and I'd be happy!
Brother also took home a small pack of their regular chicharon (the one with the red label), but I wasn't able to take a picture of it.
All these products - including the tuba vinegar, roasted peanuts, and banana chips can be purchased at Pica-Pica, a branch of Slers.
