… in search of better food.

I fell for this rice snack in Dumaguete City in the Philippines when I lived there in 1998. It came from my favorite stall in the market. It cost 2 pesos (a few pennies) and the style I liked wasn’t always available.
When I got back to the states, I scoured cookbooks and the fledgling internet looking for a recipe. It’s feasible to make it here (unlike some of the snacks that require boiling in fresh coconut leaves for six hours) — but it’s a pain. Before this summer, my last batch was sometime in 2003.
