Our Filipina nanny was a fabulous dessert maker. She made us Bibingka on a regular basis because we all raved about it. Her other specialty was Flan. Better than I've ever had even in Mexico. Turon was another - bananas in lumpia, deep-fried ... with vanilla ice-cream. Purple potato cake was also delicious.

On my travel to Macau, I had the Lord Stow's egg tarts and they were so good, I'm craving for some right now.

It's with Sago and Vanilla
My expat days in Manila, I had the simpler version from Razon's Halo Halo in Makati. That was so good.
Lol, one of the ladies at the office made me try that Taho from the street vendor and it's pretty good, used it as an energy snack in the morning, ha ha. It's soy bean curd with syrup and tapioca balls.


Another favorite while in Makati was Sans Rival, a buttery cashew dessert.




Coconut shake another favorite





Man I'm craving for this one too, it's hot cocoa batirol
This is the best cocoa drink I ever had hands down.

I think it's called Ube Cake if I'm not mistaken. My Russian friend served this and the ice cream version on her kid's bday party and the kid's loved it, loved the purple color lol.

craving turon and bibingka glad you like some of Filipino food.

some other sweet delicacy from Philippines is suman (glutinous rice wrapped in banana or coconut/palm leaves just dip it in a caramel sauce or put sugar on it), patupat (it's also a glutinous rice but with a different mixture from suman wrapped in palm leaves & no need to dip in sugar because it taste sweet already but it's just sticky when you remove the palm leaves though )

Patupat


Suman (Usually Glutinous rice or Casava)


This is suman casava


This suman glutinous rice


Suman wrapped in Palm Leaves

hmmm yummy.. this thread makes me hungry

I remember the Bibingka. Bibingka beats the regular generic pancake, IMHO. I loved it when I buy them from those street vendors served with banana leaves used as a plate and topped with shredded coconut and some melting cheese in the pancake. It taste a bit better if it's a little burnt on top.

I don't know if this is a dessert, maybe a snack, but Fish Balls comes in mind. Small balls skewered in a stick and dipped with a sauce. Delicious!

Egg Tarts in Macau is really called Pasteis de Belem. It is a Portuguese egg tart. It is very famous in Portugal usually eaten in the morning with an Espresso or during Merienda ( afternoon snack ) again with an Espresso. It is Portugal's national pastry.

Chinese Walnut Cookies

These Egg Tarts are originally Portuguese not Chinese. It is called Pasteis de Belem. It is Portugal's national pastry. Portuguese brought these tarts to Macau and now , it is very famous in China since Macau is just near. I think because it is so famous in China, people would already think it is a Chinese pastry.
