Palitaw from The Philippines
I’ve only just come across Palitaw. And, it is already my second favorite sweet food in The Philippines.
Made from sticky rice, sugar and then dipped in coconut it’s a delicious not overly sweet food.
The little dusty stuff your see to the left is ground peanut.
A little more about Palitaw
Found mainly in “ethnic” food stores, I’ve not seen this on the street. At a market yes, but not so often. It’s also meant to appear at children’s parties a lot too.
I’ve read that Palitaw is meant to be flat, and not tubular like the photography of Palitaw above. But, I’ve not seen that, only this type.
If you do travel to the Philippines, I really recommend Palitaw, add some honey to it and it’s one of the best foods in The Philippines.
