Yes, Puto Bumbong. Why, you ask, would I talk about Puto Bumbong other than Bibingka, Halo Halo, and Puto? Well, that's quite simple. I've always had a knack for snacks with so much butter, coconut, and brown toppings(I apologize for I do not know what you call it) on it. Long story shortened, it is my favorite Filipino delicacy. Just think about that melted butter with the sticky, delicious puto sitting on top of it.. and the chewy brown toppings that melt in your mouth creating a perfect combination with some wonderful hard-to-bite white coconut.. It just serves as the perfect snack for me. I love butter simply because it makes the snack look shiny and slippery.
I don't really eat much Filipino delicacies, but it is always when I go out of the city that I do.. or sometimes when I go shopping in Landmark and take a break to eat these in Via Mare. It's very rare for someone to see me eating Puto Bumbong, and I don't show it often, but I really, really, really love it. When "Filipino delicacy" comes to my mind, Puto Bumbong hits me smack middle. It is sometimes served hot, sometimes cold, from what I remember. Either way they taste great, no matter how cold or hot it is! The toppings just do the trick to surprise you, but of course.. there's an advantage to eating it hot. The steam (smoke?) that comes from that hot, purple rice makes it a nice dish to eat because it gives you this feeling that it's fresh. Seeing that small slice of butter melt on the puto's surface is heaven.. it makes you want for more. So I suggest that you go to a place where they sell this and try out my opinions for yourself. You will never see it the same way again.
