Suman Sa Moron


This suman is a delicacy of the Visayas region particularly in the Leyte province. But I’m not sure if this is also popular in other places or region besides Leyte. When you visit that province you won’t miss this kind of suman sold by vendors specially in bus terminals bound to Manila. This suman is unique because it is a two toned suman colored brown and white. The brown part is chocolate flavored glutinous rice while the white part is glutinous rice and coconut milk.
