    Nanay is from Bicol and this meryenda/kakanin is something that she cooks with perfection… missing ginataang mais and using authentic kakang gata or coconut milk from kinudkod na niyog heheheh…

    Hmmm.. Im not really fond of this merienda. Not sure, but I not used to eating corn other than its grilled or boiled — on its cob. Haha!
