This very interesting retail outlet is located on General Luna Street, at Intramuros, very near the Southern Gate. It specialises in Filipino Art, artifacts, and products, and although it is not cheap, it is not expensive either. What makes the place special is that you can find a lot of quality products under one roof , displayed beautifully in a very large area on two floors. Particularly interesting were cigars, aromatic cigarrillos (which make an excellent gift), and edible produce (like fine quality cocoa, chocolate , exotic fruit jams, etc), as well as a lot of tribal art and handicrafts. Staff were particularly helpful , informative, and certainly not pushy. The telephone number is, 632-52721111.
