Putong Ube is one of the great food stalls that I personally like. Great that they do not only have one in MOA where I usually buy some goodies and treats served as pasalubong for my families at home, they have one too in Market! Market! Thus, another opportunity to buy my favorite healthy chips.

Putong Ube has a lot to offer most especially in terms of bringing home sweet and irresistable homemade delicacies.

Among their Homemade delicacies are as follows:
Puto which are sold sugar-free, ube, pandan or queso flavor, banana chips, halayang ube, mango tarts, caramel tarts, napoleons, crispy dilis, galyetas, piyaya among others.

I consider this as a one stop shop for ultimate Filipino pasalubong which our dear ones want to have.
I enjoyed sorting through their homemade delicacies. I love not their puto but most especially their banana chips! smile

 

On display are piyaya, peanuts, puto muscovado (my next purchase will be this one because I've never tried this), tarts and putong ube. All of these are yummy for sure. I want to grab them all only if I have a lot of penny to buy those.

 

I have tried their chocolate tablea before. If you just follow the instructions carefully you will certainly be able to produce good and satisfying cocoa tea. It was so smooth. Perfect during cold season.
Anyhow what I bought this time which is the very same purchase that I used to buy at their branch in MOA is this Golden Saba Banana Chips. This is being sold by jar or by pouch. What I bought is their foil-packed one. It is cheaper on my point of view.
Php85 for a 500-gram pack. Just so you guys know Php115 for a 500-gram jar, Php75 for 350-grams pouch and Php45 for a 200-gram pack.

Snacking has never been this good!

Caught Up With The Main Act - Finally.
Smile 2010-10-28

Remember a few weeks back when we were driving by Katipunan and we stumbled upon this little quaint shop that sells purple yam rice cakes and we went home empty handed (not really though – we got their napoleones)? Well I’ll be damned – they have a branch here at the Market! Market! I’m talking about Michelle’s Putong Ube, of course their main star are those yummy looking violet treats which we failed to take home during our first encounter leading us to the almost Julia Roberts-like napoleones comparison. Did I mention Julia Roberts in that reivew? I digress. So here we go – second time around, Michelle’s Putong Ube (Purple Yam Rice Cakes).

The place.

It pales in comparison of course to their cute little store tucked by the side of the road along Katipunan near White Plains. That was so low-key it was like it almost didn’t want to be found at all. Here though, it maybe just a spartan stall with limited real estate but boy – the signs they put up on it just shouts of “Come Here and Buy Me!”. The violet back ground of their logo blazed lighted from the inside. The colors of the rice cakes they are selling gleefully parade up your head while you stand in front of their modest store. How can you not buy something seriously? Their other items they are selling besides the putong ube are proudly displayed on the shelf itself up front and on the side. Props – the set up they have here is definitely eye-catching.

The putong ube ---- finally.

The moment I dug into these babies, one bite and all I can say was – I WANT MORE. And I kept reaching for the box, one rice cake after another, popped it inside my mouth. The cake was soft and moist. The purple yam they used was pretty evident in each bite you make. I will have to say this rivals the local Putong Pulo that I’ve had from my native Valenzuela.

Well, lets just put it this way – the wait was worth it. I have no regrets about missing it the first time since I had a taste of their napoleones. The napoleones turned out to be a good front act to the main performer – their putong ube. For all the Hollywood comparison and the Julia Roberts analogy, this came out with an Oscar in tow. Filing Michelle’s Putong Ube under my highly recommended section.
