Travels and Dessert

One of the good things about taking trips is getting to taste different kinds of dessert. Sometimes, the taste of a native dessert in one place could be very different from what you are used to, at times it could be very similar. And then you have the chance to add up something new to your food or dessert list ๐Ÿ™‚
The puto and bingka or bibingka are two of my favorite desserts in the Philippines.ย The puto is a kind of steamed rice cake. It can be eaten with butter, some Filipinos also eat it with a native dish called dinuguan (pork blood stew). I enjoy eating puto as it is, sometimes I also eat it with cheese ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The bingka or bibingka is a type of rice cake made from ground rice. Its other ingredients include coconut milk, sugar and yeast. I also love eating this with some butter on it, at times. Sometimes I just eat it as it is.
If you ever travel to the Pearl of the Orient Seas, ask for some puto or bibingka to try. You might just like them ๐Ÿ™‚
