Did you know? Puto Sulot is a popular street food unique to Navotas and Malabon, sold especially during Christmas season in the Philippines (September to December).

Puto Sulot is steamed glutinous white rice, cooked basically the same way as its cousin, the puto bumbong. But unlike puto bumbong, the bamboo cylinder used to cook puto sulot is wider and a metal ring (with hole in the middle) is placed at the bottom of the bamboo cylinder (to hold the rice while cooking).

When it’s cooked, a metal rod is used to push the metal ring and the rice out of the bamboo cylinder. It is then sprinkled with a mix of grated young coconut and white sugar and then served together with salted egg, a slice of cheddar cheese, and/or fried tuyo. Have you tasted one? (Ref: throughsaraseyes)
