PALITAW BY QUAN | REDISCOVERING FILIPINO KAKANIN
Summer is a time for many things…. beaches, adventures, places, discovery, travel, food and much more.
In Negros, we have a wide array of native delicacies to try and rediscover especially this season. Today I visited Quan, a store known for its quality native delicacies. I just have Arroz Caldo with an egg for lunch. But since I am a dessert person, I normally look for anything that is sweet for each meal. This time I tried the Palitaw but here in Bacolod it is popularly known as “Inday-Inday”.
For those who are not familiar with it, the name of this kakanin comes from the tagalog word litaw which means “float” or “rise”. This kakanin is a small, flat, sweet rice cake eaten in the Philippines. They are made from malagkit (sticky rice) washed, soaked, and then ground. After excess water is let out from the grinding process scoops of the batter are rolled and the flattened to disk shapes and dropped into boiling water where they float to the surface as flat discs – an indication that they’re done, hence the word Palitaw.
At Quan, Palitaw or Inday-Inday is served with grated coconut and topped with muscovado and toasted sesame seeds. This kakanin/rice cake is only sold at Php 6.50/pc. For merienda, try this kakanin with brewed coffee or with an ice-cold drink.
Visit Quan in any of their outlets to try their wide array of native delicacies. Quan has branches in Robinsons (Supermarket Area), Veranda, Lopues -San Sebastian, Lopue’s East, Gaisano City, La Salle, and Northdrive.
