Suman sa Lihiya

Saturday is market day here in Ibaan. And what I love about Saturday is that I've got the chance to indulge on different kakanin available at our local market.

What I had this morning was Suman sa Lihiya.

Suman sa Lihiya is a variety of suman made from malagkit rice (glutinous rice) soaked in lihiya (lye), drained and wrapped in banana leaves then boiled for about 2 hours.
This is served with special latik (cooked grated coconut meat) and sugar syrup.
Best enjoyed with a cup of coffee!


I ate 2 of those suman! *big grin*
