Growing up, one of my favorite afternoon snack is suman. Suman is a sweet sticky rice cake that is steamed with coconut milk while wrapped by a banana leaf. This Filipino delicacy is best enjoyed through dipping it in sugar or drizzling it with latik. I often find myself craving for one but nowadays there are only a few street vendor who sells this. Good thing Senyor Juan’s Suman Latik catered to my cravings.
I went to their Sm Mall of Asia Branch as this was the nearest branch to my house. I was greeted with the stalls upbeat music, colorful logo and the sweet aroma of fresh steamed suman. The staff smiled and greeted me as they introduce one by one the best selling flavors.
ESPESYAL UBE MACAPUNO SUMAN LATIK-P69
This was the first suman that I tasted that have ube macapuno on top. There was a large amount of ube that was served with this suman. This is a melt in your mouth treat, the blend of ube macapuno with the suman latik made me crave for more. Mixing two of my favorite delicacy made me one happy girl. I actually finished this on one sitting and that is how good it was.
Manga or mangoes is one of my go to fruits during the summer season. Senyor Juan did not disappoint as when I took one bite of this suman latik with generous amount of sweet mangoes on top and sprinkled with peanuts, I felt so refreshed. It was a very hot day when I did this food review, so my palette was craving for something light and sweet.
I always eat leche flan with halo halo or as it is as a dessert. When this suman latik topped with leche flan and sprinkled with peanuts was served, I was delighted and curious at the same time. I never knew that leche flan could taste good with suman latik as both of them are already sweet. The flan did not overpower the taste of the latik, it actually enhanced it and delivered another scrumptious surprise.
I usually eat my suman latik steamed so when I was given this particular fried version, I was bit surprised. It was my first time tasting a fried suman latik that was sprinkled with chocolates. This is ideal for introducing suman latik to kids. It was colorful, tasty , sweet and let’s not forget it was sprinkled with a generous amount of chocolate.
FRIED CHEESE SUMAN LATIK-P75
Mangosteen Dalandan Honey Juice P45
I have tried mixing mangosteen and honey before so I was quite excited to try this one as it was mixed with dalandan. This was like a breath of fresh air for me. It was tasty, refreshing on a hot day and perfectly paired with any of the above mentioned suman latik. I would definitely purchase this one again.
Dalandan Honey Juice P35
Gourmet Coffee Barako P35 and Homemade Hot Choco Tablea P99
Since the weather in the Philippines is unpredictable, this hot treat is the best way to go during rainy day season. I would loved to try this out on my next visit. So I can put a proper description on how good it is when paired with suman latik.
PACKS OF 6 AND 12 TAKEOUT
Senyora which was the 6 pieces cost 199 and Senyor which was the 12 pieces take out cost 399. Each box include the latik and the budbud and this can be shared to your friends and family.
Senyor Juan’s Suman Latik is highly recommended as they added a unique touch in serving their summan latik. This innovative sweet treat also has a lot of health benefits. My entire family loved their classic suman latik as well. I would definitely repurchased their ube macapuno, manga and leche flan flavor.
