Kakanin, puto, kutsinta, sapin-sapin, suman atbp

Jul 06

kakanin or rice cakesThis afternoon, I went to Makati Cinema Sqauare at Pasong Tamo Extension to buy some printer ink catridges when I bumped into this kakanin stall at the basement. The pretty display of our native rice delicacies (the kakanin) drew my attention. The vendor had practically everything from [tag]Kakanin[/tag], puto, kutsinta, sapin-sapin, kalamay bibingka, Puto ng Biñan, maja blanca, bico,and more. I chose the ube kalamay.

Kakanin as a type of food stems from multi-dimensional meanings– from the root word kanin (rice) as a noun or kanin (to eat) as a verb. With the prefix of “ka”, kakanin describes many kinds of rice recipes meant to be eaten as snacks or the many ways of cooking snacks or desserts to celebrate the harvest of the Philippine Islands. source


The kakanin is an affordable snack . For 10 pesos or a quarter of a dollar, the snack can easily fill your hunger pangs. View Photo gallery of sapin-sapin,puto, suman, bico, kutsinta
