Eating Puto Bumbong In Japan

I can't remember the last time I have eaten a Puto Bumbong which is a pinoy treat for Christmas. I remember lining up together with some of my barkadas in Manila at our favorite stall just to have this native delicacy and usually you could only find these during the Christmas season. I don't want to pass the season without eating one!

Sadly, we don't have pinoy stores near us here in Japan but luckily I found where to shop pinoy foodies online and ordered puto bumbong of my dreams. It was frozen and just nuke it at the oven range but it wasn't that good like of those in the Philippines and it's kind-a- odd coz it's summer time but what the heck, it definitely satisfied my cravings ^_^

I miss those great puto bumbongs with fresh grated, then toasted, coconut and sugar!!!


Puto bumbong is a dish made from purpled-colored ground rice cooked in bamboo tubes that are placed on a special steamer-cooker. Then, they are removed from the bamboo tubes, spread with butter and sprinkled with sugar and niyog (grated coconut). They are then wrapped in wilted banana leaves which will keep them warm and moist until ready to be eaten.

Here in the Philippines, there are restaurants that serve puto bumbong all year round. One of them is Via Mare. I love puto bumbong, too! Sarap! Here's my FTF entry:
