Biko ~ A Favorite Filipino Mirienda

comfort food, food musings, Filipino street foods, Filipino delicacies

I am lucky to chance upon this old lady selling this Filipino kakanin we call biko last weekend. It has been ages since I had some and I really missed eating this! I remember when my Mama used to make this at home, along with a lot of other delicious food and treats! I wish now more than ever that I have inherited my mama’s cooking prowess so that I might be able to make some of these whenever I have cravings. From what I know, this local delicacy is made from sticky rice and coconut milk, topped with latik and grated coconut. Yum!

Anyway, this biko sure is a very welcome treat especially that I was busy doing chores that I was not able to prepare some snacks. I got 2 slices for Php14 each, which I thought is a good buy considering how good it tasted! It was a perfect match for a steaming cup of my newly-favorite tea. I just wish the little man would have a bite or two. I finished the last slice just before I finished reading all about this cool article on the diary of a madman tab.

Nanay, the biko peddler, said she cooks different treats daily, hopefully I get lucky to catch her selling her delicious wares in our neighborhood again very soon! 🙂
