Combi de Cuisineuer - Suman at Tsokolate ( Hot Chocolate and Glutinous Rice Cake )



My delightful culinary experience in Cebu City continues. This time, we had a perfect match of Tsokolate at Suman ( Hot Chocolate and Glutinous Rice Cake ) for breakfast. Another Filipino favorite duo for breakfast I would say.




The hot, thick, steaming and  rich chocolate  was made from the cocoa mass shown above. It was personally made by Majal's Aunt where we spend the night before. They have grown cacao trees at their farmville, made the cocoa mass and saved it for their visitors like us. Majal's aunt was very accommodating and sweet. Always taking care of us. The cocoa mass was cooked in a pot on this humble, homemade stove.




On the other hand, the Suman or the Glutinous Rice Cake wrapped in banana leaves were bought from the Suman maker. We saw how it was prepared when we passed by going to the San Guillermo de Aquitana Church the night before.










 I am very grateful to experience not just a superb cuisine but personalized or shall I say, cebuano's way of hospitality. Indeed, Cebuanos are very hospitable people. Thank you tita for accommodating and feeding us.

Yumm I love suman!! I actually like dipping the plain suman into native tsokolate.. sort of like churros, but without the grease! Craving for it now, argh.

Wow, I have never witnessed suman as it is being prepared and also never have enjoyed both suman and tsokolate at the same time. Thanks for reminding me! I like your blog already. :)
