6-21-2015: Puto ug Sikwate
One of my favorite breakfast food combos is the puto with sikwate. Puto is steamed sticky rice with coconut milk while sikwate is the native hot chocolate. The combination also goes so well with some ripe mangoes. My two ways of eating the breakfast or snack pair are either I pour the sweet sikwate to the puto or I get a spoonful of puto and dip it in a cup of hot sikwate. Pictured above is the version of The Chocolate Chamber of this delightful combo.
Every locality has a food that they can call it their own. We usually miss the food that we eat while growing up. A lot of Cebuanos are now living abroad or at least away from Cebu and there are just days that they miss certain dishes. These dishes are the ones that remind them of home, or childhood or people they love. Here are recipes for 7 dishes that will delight any Cebuano's heart, tongue, and belly:
You cannot say you are a Cebuano foodie until you partake and enjoy the offerings of your local Pungko-Pungko stall. Pungko means squat in the Cebuano language. The Pungko-Pungko name was attached to vendors who walk to sell food and when they find interested eaters they usually look for a clean corner and squat or "pungko" to eat. Now, most Pungko-Pungko suki do not need to look for their favorite vendor because there are now in many places in the city that are known for this type of "cuisine". The popular hotspots for pungko-pungko are the stalls in the Fuente area at the back of Sampaguita Suites, Redemptorist Church Area near Foodarama, and Cebu Doctor's University area beside McDonald's.

I love street food. I have been eating it since I was in elementary school. From fishballs to peanuts to pungko-pungko. One of the newest street food favorites is the Proben or Chicken Proven. This fried chicken part is one of my favorite snacks when I was still working at Robinsons Cybergate and I would love to eat it when I get the chance. Have you tried this one?
