Biko from The Philippines
This is an odd ball sweet snack I nearly passed over one day. Biko is made from sticky rice, cooked in coconut milk and mixed or topped with caramel.
It’s not that easily found. And, usually only shows up at parties for children. But if you ask around, there will be someone who’ll direct you to a store selling it in most big towns.
The caramel on Biko is also not always “caramel“. As with many things in The Philippines Biko is often made from whatever is available at the time that “looks” like the original ingredient. In this case, brown sugar.
So, watch out just in case you are expecting something else!
