De Ocampo's Barquillos

Deocampo's Barquillos in Iloilo

Whether you’re craving for Iloilo’s famous barquillos (crispy rolled wafer) or you’re looking for a perfect pasalubong, De Ocampo’s Pasalubong Shop is the perfect place for your local snack haul. Located at Santa Isabel Street in Jaro, this pasalubong shop is synonymous to barquillos because of its century long production of this crispy Filipino favorite snack. 

Inspired by the Spanish barquillos, Iloilo’s barquillos have a thinner and longer wafer cylindrical biscuits made with sugar, milk, flour, egg, vanilla, and butter. This Filipino favorite snack came about during a mere food experiment wherein sugar and milk were combined with “ostya” (communion bread) left over by Jose and Bessie De Ocampo. 

An additional tip for you to enjoy your barquillos is to partner it with your favorite ice cream or mix it with other flavors such as polvoron, pandan or ube. Other best sellers include barquiron, biscocho, pinasugbo, toasted mammon, pasencia, and other desserts.
