This native delicacy is the famous suman wrap in buli leaves. This suman is not usually found in wet markets or sidewalks many years ago and the only place I know where it is abundant is in Antipolo. But now a days there are lots of vendor selling this kakanin. Since there are no sugar or any sweeteners added to this suman, you have to dip it on sugar or coco jam to enjoy it. And it is best serve with a cup of hot chocolate drink.
