Feasting on Kamayan Desserts

Previously, I talked about the Filipino dishes that me and my Malaysian blogger friend ate at the Filipino restaurant Kamayan. So, if there is a main course, there will be desserts and those are what we feasted on next.

Filipino desserts are just placed on one table.

Kamayan offers the usual Filipino desserts like palitaw, suman, turon, sweet banana, gulaman and ube halaya. Too bad I did not saw any sapin-sapin that day.

Because I like sweets, I never resisted Kamayan's dessert.

On my plate are turon, sweet sago, palitaw, jelly and glutinous rice cake. Kamayan's dessert tastes good. However, I still prefer buying these desserts from kakanin vendors in the local market for a cheaper price. The price is cheap but the taste is the same as the ones in Kamayan.

My friend did not like the ube suman. I also tasted it and I did not like it. That is the only dessert that we dislike in Kamayan.

After a plateful of Filipino desserts, we tried the halo-halo next. Halo is the Filipino word for mix. Halo-halo is a mixture of crushed ice, be halaya, pinipig, sweet mongo and other ingredients. It is the favorite Filipino treat during.

I like Kamayan's halo-halo because the ingredient is complete.

That's the end of my Kamayan experience. I recommend this buffet restaurant, especially if you are a foreigner who wants to taste Filipino dishes.
