Filipino Merienda


A favorite Filipino merienda (snack): suman sa lihiya (sticky rice cake with lye) at mainit na inuming tsokolate (hot chocolate drink)! 🙂 The tsokolate came from Dardams’ most recent cacao harvest. The drink made by Katchu is thick with very rich and earthy chocolate taste. We bought the suman from a lady from church who diligently makes/sells different kinds of snacks. The suman was almost gone before I could publish this post! As you can see from the photo, it’s smothered with sauce. That sauce is made of coconut milk and caramel. Yum! It was a nice Sunday afternoon snack. I ended up staying until dinner! 🙂
