Why I love Bluewater Panglao’s puto with sikwate

Simply indulgent and flavorful, pair it with either sweet ripe mangoes or slightly thick sikwate (hot chocolate) and you’ve got a memorable breakfast at Aplaya, Bluewater Panglao’s main restaurant.

It was something that I looked forward to every morning at the breakfast buffet while staying at Bluewater Panglao Beach Resort. At first, I got curious on what was inside a big steamer beside the metal pitcher with a batirol inside.

I opened the wooden lid to take a look. To my surprise, little but beautiful pieces of hemispherical puto, traditional rice cake made from malagkit, sticky rice, gata (coconut milk) and luy-a (ginger) then steamed. Under each is a piece of banana leaf.

I took some pieces and went to my table. I took a bite, and, wow. The gingery moist and chewy puto topped with a small piece of sweet ripe mango. It was childhood memories again when we have puto and sikwate for breakfast. But I just love the gingery taste which was restrained. The sikwate sweet and chocolatey.

If ever you have a chance to stay at Bluewater Pangalao, grab some pieces of puto and a small cup of sikwate. You will be in for a good treat.

Beautiful set up, indulgent and a feast for the eyes
