Have a taste of Putobumbong this Holiday Season.



Every year Filipinos mark September as the beginning of the Christmas Countdown, known as the BER MONTHS.

Part of the tradition in Celebrating the Christmas in the Philippines is eating Puto Bumbong, a purple, sticky rice delicacy steamed in bamboo tubes.

Typically eaten after Mass, as this Purple sticky rice delicacy is sold together with bibingka on the streets outside churches, with smell of a freshly steamed Puto Bumbong, so very inviting you’ll smell it right after you are about to leave church. Although these delicacy is associated with the Christmas season, Puto Bumbong is being prepared and sold throughout the year, the peak season would be during the “BER MONTHS” when the weather is starting to get colder.
