These Sapin-Sapin Rolls Have Flavors Of Ube, Macapuno, And Langka!
It's topped with a creamy latik.
Any guide to Filipino kakanin will always include the colorful sapin-sapin, a tri-colored rice cake that is commonly made with a layer each of an opaque white, purple, reddish-orange chewy rice cake and then topped with crunchy latik. Puto Filipino puts a spin on this classic kakanin with its rolled sapin-sapin.
Compared to the sapin-sapin sold as street food, what's unique about Puto Filipino's sapin-sapin is that it's served as a roll (think like a flattened cinnamon roll!) instead of a cake slice, plus, each layer offers a different Filipino flavor. The purple outer layer has a taste of ube, the white layer tastes like macapuno, and the yellow layer has notes of the sweet langka or jackfruit.
Puto Filipino's rolled sapin-sapin is not topped with crunchy latik or desiccated coconut,but instead, it's served with creamy latik you put on the center. This adds a depth of melting, sugary sweetness to each roll.
Puto Filipino's sapin-sapin rolls cost P440 for a bilao of 24 pieces, but you can also opt for the bilao of 15 pieces of sapin-sapin rolls that comes with a serving of quarter of puto for P480. You can send your orders by messaging Puto Filipino on Instagram.
