Puto and Bibingka from Mahaplag, Leyte

Bibingka and puto are two of Mahaplag's native delicacies. If you happen to reach this part of Leyte, you should give them a try. You will easily spot these rice cakes as vendors sell them on the streets of this little town in Leyte.



Neatly packed in plastic wrappers, these food products are ideal as pasalubong (homecoming gift) or as baon (snack while on travel).

Enjoy your breakfast with Mahaplag's version of bibingka and puto.

  2. Oooh, I miss these delicacies na! Those pics look so good! Please continue to post more food blog from our areas in Leyte & Samar Doray! I love it! Thanks for sharing...

  3. I want them, I want them. They look so delicious. I will definitely go to our nearest shop to find whether they are tasted like that.

  4. My dad is Waray but I've rarely been to Samar/Leyte. Every year when I was a kid, my Lola sent us native food. I'm starting to really miss them... :)
