Puto Kamoteng Kahoy

One of the reasons I love being a Pinoy and living in Pinas - you can see great finds just roaming around the street and I mean it in great many ways.  Yes, even food!

Photo below is called Puto Kamoteng Kahoy in my side of town, its main ingredients is kamoteng kahoy (cassava) and it is cooked through steaming hence the name puto.  But contrary to the usual puto who comes as plain as they were made (pun for as plain as they were born, hur) or with toppings like cheese and salted eggs, this kind of puto has sugar and grated coconut as fillings and is usually smothered with margarine.

You should try it, it's superbly Pinoy and budget-friendly, it cost about Php6 - 10.
