To my fellow Filipinos, i need your help! I am throwing a merienda party in the office on my birthday. I have thought of puto and dinuguan. What other dishes or sauces do you have in mind that would be suitable for puto aside from dinuguan? I so await for your replies

The puto and tablea idea is made from heaven but try to use the purest tablea.

I like the suggestion too, there are tablea brands you can buy in the mall that has a history dating back to the 1800's or the 1900's and they are not that expensive

yes, i mean the pure tablea that's why I even suggested how to prepare it. If it prepared with 'love' the tablea choco drink is really heavenly. It is also best served in small tea Chinese tea cups. I love these tableas paired with churros.:-) this one is best if it homemade.:-)

Puto and dinuguan is the most popular partner. Aside from it you can try to use tablea choco drink . For it to become a perfect partner for your puto , it has to be prepared properly by an overnight soaking of powderized/crashed tablea in evaporated milk with proper proportion. If you can do it properly, it is very delicious. How about suman and mango? It is a perfect combination too. it can be served either as a morning or afternoon snacks. Once I had a unique birthday celebration. Its fruit party. So all that were offered to the guests were different kinds of fruits with some by products of it. They enjoyed the fruits.

Hello Graceekwenx. It is a combination of Filipino-Spanish food that is usually served during media-noche on Christmas or Easter. But the perfect partner of it is churros. I don't know if you have heard of it. It is best if it is homemade.:-) Good luck to your birthday bash.

How about puto and pansit? Yes both are carbohydrates but the taste do compliments each other. Another great Puto partner is Pork Adobo. Adobo should be cooked dry as possible . Yummy, by the way Happy birthday, May God bless you on your special day!

Nueva Ecija "egado" has bananas? I did not know that and thanks for telling me, I've tasted Bicol province egado and it has "Gabi" (taro root crop) instead, maybe instead of potato hehe...

I presume you are referring to "puto" that goes well with dinuguan cause a lot of others have different ideas about puto , understandable cause different kinds are made in every province. I love "puto" with cheese but that is too common and very Westernized, so try it with "kesong puti" ( fresh white cheese made from goats milk and wrapped in banana leaves). it's rather hard to find but I hope you have it in your place, for one it is unique, native because of the appealing banana leaves wrapper and a bit classy hehe... besides it does not have the uric acid and cholesterol " dinuguan " has. I like the Tablea suggestion, very Spanish-Filipino, serve it in small cups or copitas. Good luck on your affair

What kind of puto? If it's like the Puto in Calasiao, Pangasinan, then I would definitely recommend that you dip the Puto in Chiz Whiz. It is really delicious. We always do that whenever we eat puto. :)

can I ask what kind of puto are you serving? puto biƱan can be served with almost any savory and sweet dishes white puto kuchinta is perfect for not-so-sweet treats why not also serve puto with pansit or spaghetti?

puto is also paired best with palabok or arroz caldo.
