    Isa yan sa mga fave ko. I used to make pichi-pichi for merienda pero hindi na ngayon, bumibili na lang. Nakakatamad kasi, igi-grate pa yung cassava. I like it either with grated fresh coconut or cheese. 🙂

    I tasted this pichi pichi 3 years ago while on vacation in the Philippines and my husband and I just loved it. It took 3 years before I learned the name from friends and this time I will try to cook the recipe for Christmas.
