I am very fond of the Filipino kakanin and have been craving for puto bumbong for ages now. I was disappointed that I was not able to get some during the Christmas season when these are always available in front of local churches, a popular dessert to eat after hearing Christmas masses.
I thought I had to wait until December to taste the gooey goodness of this local delicacy, it is a good thing we managed to grab some at Via Mare during our visit to Kidzania in February. It was yummy as expected and I should’ve ordered more for takeaway. Via Mare added an interesting twist to the flavor we’ve grown to love by adding a generous amount of grated cheddar cheese to the purple treat, for only Php15. Aside from the regular cheese, you can also opt for a sprinkle of grated queso de bola as toppings, just add Php23.
I absolutely loved it and it is making me crave for some now that I am writing about it! 😀 What is your favorite local kakanin?
