"Good morning! Good morning!" merrily greets the horn of our potpot puto. Balanced over the shoulders of our waiters, the twin tin containers overflowing with freshly made puto, kutsinta and other native rice delicacies are eagerly greeted by our guests cum "rice cake connoisseurs." Every now and then you hear parents encouraging their children to have some and taste these rice cakes which are part and parcel of our gastronomic history.
