Where to go for great buys on baking supplies and equipments in Manila....


I found these stores where you can get great, great buys!


New Sin Kian Heng
196 Carlos Palanca St. Quiapo, Manila [Right beside Quinta Market in Quiapo, Manila]
Tel.Nos:733-2131/ 733-6871/ 733-6367/ 733-6381
Available here are loads of kitchenwares and baking equipments, lots of pans and molds to choose from at very good prices and quality. They have items from kitchen aids to pans, wilton decors, tips, whisks, stoves, ovens, spatulas and a wide array of everything you need. Just ask for assistance from friendly staffs, ask for prices so you can be properly guided. I was actually even greeted and had a short, interesting chat with the owner who even revealed that Goldilocks Cakeshop has been a long time client of their store. And he wished me luck in my baking business as well. This the kind of store, you will love to frequent and become a loyal customer.


Killion Merchandising
40 Orosco Street, Quiapo Manila
Tel. Nos. 733-8221, 733-2093
Fax 733-7036

Killion Merchandising. It is a store very near Quinta Market in Quiapo, they have most of the ingredients bakers and chefs need, some items are much cheaper for up to 40 % less compared to supermarket or grocery prices. And they have available stocks from butter to flour, sprinkles to kikiam and many more.
Additional Tips:  In front of Killion, at Nut Store, they have choco bars, choco molds at lowest prices, also canned fruits, flour, confectionary sugar, ice cones flavoring etc.  Also in Quiapo is Mostwell, they have doilies and boxes for cupcakes and cakes, for candles and souveneirs plus plastics and almost anything about crafts. For wholesale confectionary sugar of Peotraco brand, it's in Sto. Cristo St. Binondo. You won't miss it as they have a huge signage. For boxes and plastics for cakes na pastries, you can buy at Commoners,  they have most of the packaging need except boxes for cupcakes.  For other baking or kitchenware especially stainless items,you can find them in Ilaya Street in Divisoria.
Here is a listof stores I found on the net, I had them summarized but retained the writers' comments as these would be important in our choices.I have visited some of the stores and bought from them in the past like Chocolate Lovers and Cooks Exchange, but I will surely be making my own rounds of "inspection" of these shops in the days to come. It goes:

1. Chocolate Lovers
    Website:
http://echocolatelover.com/
     Main Branch: 45 P. Tuazon Blvd. corner C. Benitez St.Cubao Quezon, City 1109
     Tel. nos. 411-7474 / 724-5752 / 724-4964
     2nd Branch: Kitanlad St. cor. Quezon Avenue, Quezon City
     Tel. Nos. 732-8576 / 741-7487
     [Chocolate Lovers carries almost anything you need from ingredients to packaging. Take the MRT and alight at Cubao station. Exit at the opposite side of Farmers Plaza. Find the tricycle queue either outside HBC store or the ones near Edsa and ask the driver to take you to Chocolate Lovers. If you see the "castle" that's Chocolate Lovers. [You won't miss this big castle along P.Tuazon.] Some things you couldn't get from them: Corrugated Boards, big cake boxes, big icing tips.]

2. Chef's Nook
     Address: 20 Pilar St., Addition Hills, Mandaluyong 
     (corner street of the Honda showroom along Shaw Blvd.]      
     Tel. No.: 724- 5812
    
[Chocolates and nuts are cheaper than chocolate lovers, refrigerated/stored well.]

3. Sweetcraft Baking and Confectionery Supplies
    Address: 373 Boni Avenue, Mandaluyong
    Tel No.: 532-1595
   
[It's a small and neat store. They sometimes have specialized packaging. Via MRT, go down at Boni station, Mandaluyong side. Take a tricycle at the back of the tiangge. If the driver doesn't know where Sweetcraft is, tell him it's in front of RTU (Rizal Technical University).One thing I would never buy from them: marshmallows!]

4. Ingrid’s Sweet Haven [ Baking ingredients, pans & supplies.]
  
Websites: http://www.ingridsweethaven.com and http://ingridsweethaven.multiply.com
   Address: 363 Dr. Sixto Antonio Avenue corner Liwayway Street, Caniogan, Pasig
   Tel No.: 641-2561
  
5. The Cocoa Pantry 
    Website: http://thecocoapantry.multiply.com
    Address: 130 Katipunan Road, St. Ignatius Village, Q.C.
    Tel: 497-6957


6. Baker's Depot

7. Carla's Bakery and Confectionery Supply
    Unit E Dr. A. Santos Ave. Sucat, Paranaque City
    Tel. Nos.: 826-9107; 820-5246
    [It's a small store across Shopwise and Santana Grove in Sucat but they almost have anything you need from ingredients to packaging. Some good reasons to buy from them: friendly staff, variety of box sizes especially bigger sizes, can buy bigger boxes by pieces, they have corrugated boards.] 

OTHERS:
a. Supermarkets - You can buy most basic ingredients like baking powder, baking soda, sugar, oil, butter, cheese in the supermarket [preferred: SM Megamall Supermarket Bldg. B ] Price difference isn't really that much but the convenience of not having to go to the specialty store is priceless.
b. Department Stores - For baking utensils, Landmark has a variety to choose from and they're cheaper too. SM Malls also have Wilton and other branded products. Wilton products from Divisoria more expensive.
c. Cooks Exchange - Glorietta 4, SM Megamall Bldg. A
[ Prices at this store, especially for ingredients, are more expensive but if you are buying just a thing or two or a small portion of an ingredient, you would hardly notice.]
d. Guordo's - Glorietta 4, Gateway, The Fort and The Podium (under the name LIVING WELL) Living Well at the Podium carries the most extensive line of Wilton products.
[ Gourdo’s is the official reseller of Wilton Items in the Philippines. Wilton is the number one brand for cake decorating items worldwide. You can visit their webstore to order online or know their branch locations. Tel.No.812-3022 Gourdo’s also delivers. Wbsite: www.gourdos.com]


e.  RM Boxes - For boxes and packaging needs. Some boxes in Chocolate Lovers and other suppliers are actually from them.

Sources:

If buying by the bulk, prices are way cheaper in Divisoria:
1. Bestway
   691 Sto. Cristo Street, Divisoria
   Tel.No.: 242-5366
   [If going there the first time and commuting, go through Divisoria Mall and find the Sto. Cristo exit. Upon exit, walk towards the left direction and find the Chinabank signage on the right side of street. Right before that Chinabank signage is Bestway. Bestway has lots of items for cake decorating including edible flowers, candles, cake backdrop. They have a variety of packaging too.]
2. Estanislao Trading
    817 Sto. Cristo Street, Divisoria
    Tel.Nos: 241-9541 / 241-9487 / 243-3976
    [ If Bestway is to the left, Estanislao is to the right, 3rd store right after crossing M. de Santos Street (where Allied Bank is).]
3. Enriquez Multi-Sales
   427 M. de Santos St., Divisoria
   Tel.Nos: 243-3678 / 243-3668
   [This is just in the neighborhood, too. You can take the same Sto. Cristo exit and find M. de Santos. This is near Allied Bank, just ask around.]
4. George Enterprises
   736 Tabora St., Divisoria Manila
   Tel. Nos: 241-8578 / 241-8579

For us bakers and baking enthusiasts, it pays to be resourceful  to get great buys at real good prices and quality!

Do you know where to buy a cheap butter?

Anonymous said...

Hi. What school will you recommend for beginners like me? I just want the weekend class, just need to learn the very basic steps in baking, though I know a little how to bake, I still want to learn the very basic in baking.
Thanks.

PERRY YUSUF said...

Hi. I normally would use only two affordable brands Dairy Creme butter and Buttercup as both work well on my products.

PERRY YUSUF said...

Hi. I would recommend TRC or Technological Research Center for basic baking courses. I have enrolled there several times. I know their new location is near MMDA along Guadalupe Edsa. I wish you the best!

Hello:) super helpful ng mga infos;) can I ask for your suggestion po if where can I enroll for short classes in basic baking ung pang sat/sun po sna:) like cookies,cupcakes & cakes:) thanks po:) Ung affordable po..ok ba sa tesda taguig? Thanks -reina

PERRY YUSUF said...

Most welcome Reina! TESDA is a good choice. I also suggest that those interested in baking first enrol in Basic Baking course, then you can choose to enrol the next on specialized courses on particular cakes, cookies et al. Always is best to know the basics! I would also recommend TRC which is located now in Guadalupe Edsa near MMDA, you can may try Heny Sison too, her school's in Santolan. All the best!

PERRY YUSUF said...

Wassalam Ara! I only get my chocolates from a shop near Quiapo. I will update you once I find real halal suppliers. jazakAllah....

PERRY YUSUF said...

Christalline Anne Santos said...

I really love this tip. And I read comments about cooking school. I want to concentrate on cupcake making and came across Cupcake Workshop at Heny Sison. Then I saw your comment to try either Heny Sison or TRC, and was happy that I am somehow on the right track. If I take the TRC option, which course would you suggest I take. Thanks much! You are indeed an angel! :)

Hello. This is really helpful. Which of these stores have seeds and nuts? I can get them at Santi's but it's really expensive. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks. -Bernadette

PERRY YUSUF said...

Hi Bernadette,
You can buy the nuts from Killon Merchandising. There is usually a long line of buyers there, just be patient. Most of the prices are posted and hanged all over their place. I believe theirs is cheaper from most stores. Thanks and God bless you....

Kevin Hugo said...

Hello bro, I'm new in baking. In fact, I'm currently enrolled in Bread and Pastry Program offered by TESDA while running a family business.

I wanted to put up a bakery in our town. I took the course just to learn and know the industry. (btw, I'm a pharmacist).

I'm really a newbie! :) What can you advise as to where to start buying equipments, raw materials and other stuffs concerning bakery.

Thanks!
God bless you!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
