lots of options are out there when it comes to merienda or snacks. cupcake, donuts, muffins, burger and a whole lot of full-filling treats. but there's nothing like this jelly-like steamed rice cake, a true pinoy invention called kutsinta. it goes well with just about anything, whether coffee, coke or even fruit juices.
a little grated coconut meat on top and it would definitely bring you back to those good old days when you were playing on the streets and thinking of nothing but to play all day. yup, more than filling your tummy with energy-giving carbohydrates, kutsinta and other pinoy rice cakes will always remind anyone of their childhood days... i guess that would always be the case with anything native, especially with delicacies. happy week ahead!
