A must-try Dumaguete delicacy is the budbud, a rice cake traditionally made with rice cooked with coconut milk, sugar, and a bit of salt. It is then wrapped and steamed in banana leaves, giving it a distinct aroma. These rice cakes are usually served with a cup of hot chocolate and sweet yellow mangoes.


Budbud-Gourmet Suman's delectable sticky treats use grains that come from the mountains of Dumaguete. Maribel Van Hoven, the owner of Budbud-Gourmet Suman and who comes from Negros herself, learned how to perfect the suman recipes on her own, despite having no culinary training prior to starting the business.

The eye-catching colors of the ube suman twirled with the langka suman!


After fourteen years in the business, Budbud-Gourmet Suman has perfected 17 delicious flavors. The flavors vary from the ordinary budbud kabog-which is a millet seed cake roll, while the rest have different combinations of chocolate, ube (purple yam), langka (jackfruit), and coco jam.

The seventeen different flavors of Budbud - Gourmet Suman are priced ranging from Php35 to Php55. (Purple rice is no longer available!) 


Because of the wide selection of their sweet variants, they decided to create a more savory flavor and came up with Budbud Champtuyo. Yes, it's champorado-and-tuyo-flavored suman! They incorporated chocolate into the rice and placed the crushed dried fish in the center.
