Puto Itum

Did you know that Samar cultivates black glutinous rice?

Dark grains are soaked in water, followed by grinding. The rice paste is mixed with a generous amount of freshly squeezed coconut cream and sugar, and placed in a mold for steaming.

The result is a glistening shade of gray with speckles of dark grains. The texture is soft and creamy with subdued sweetness. Every bite is delightful.

Embark on a food trip and taste the difference.
