Whether it’s a bag of steamed puto, a sticky tray of biko, or a bilao of sapin-sapin, kakanin is deeply embedded in the culture and taste buds of every Filipino. However, with the restrictions brought about by the community quarantine still in place, these beloved sticky rice snacks may be hard to come by lest you’re lucky enough to have a street vendor peddling puto and kutsinta around your village. To help you satisfy your kakanin cravings, we listed down a few shops that deliver in Manila.
These shops deliver kakanin straight to your doorstep:
