Food Trip # 05 : Puso

What's the sense of traveling places without sampling thier local specialties. Food that makes the place known for and the other way around. This is my Food Trip, where visiting a place is not the same nor complete without eating what do locals are proud of. I will make a blog entries regarding the food I tasted during my travels in this meme so do please visit every Friday and the Food Friday Meme.


Locals say that the "puso" was created so that the cooked rice will not spoil easily. the holes on each weaved coconut leaves act as an air vent.

The seller said that they weave coconut leaves to form a diamond shaped prism, fill it with rice(uncooked) then close the weave. place it on a pot to boil until cooked :D

i once saw my yaya cook 'puso' ... but am not really a fan since i find the taste of the rice distracting when they are cooked that way. lol. give me the one cooked inside a 'kaldero', please. :D

thanks for playing again, Jay!
really really appreciate it!

love that shot of you JUMPING on the tarmac. ;P

I remember a friend from Bulacan with something like this, but I think they use pandan leaves. This resembles suman in a way pero ibang way ng luto.

definitely a unique way to package steamed rice. a friend in Cebu taught me how to weave the coconut leaves pero di ko talaga makuha kung papano.:D

masarap 'to with pork BBQ!:D

looks like suman pero plain rice lang talaga ang nasa loob?
