The Philippines is rich in its culture. One of the foods that’s part of our culture, are the “kakanins”, or those pastries made of glutinous rice. I specially like the kutsinta , but I think it’s not made of glutinous rice but just of rice flour. I like it topped with freshly grated coconut. I also like “biko”, glutinous rice made sweet by a local “matamis na bao”. I also like the suman with latik. Actually, it’s the latik (coconut milk with condensed milk ) that makes it so delicious. I like pairing them with pancit. (stir fried noodles). Do you have your particular "kakanin" guys?
