Suman Festival at SM City Masinag

Do you love "native kakanin" as much as I do?

Well then feast your eyes on this 350 meters long Suman Sa Ibos. 

Yes, you read it right, this string of Antipolo's most popular pasalubong, "Suman sa Ibos" is really 350 meters long. It took 100 kilos of sticky rice to produce this 2500 pieces of individually wrapped Suman sa Ibos. 

SM City Masinag literally transformed into a  Suman Haven.  

This  latest  partership program between the City Government of Antipolo and  SM City Masinag is aptly named "Suman Festival"

The Suman Festival to kickstart the month-long Antipolo Maytime ~ SUMAKAH (which is actually an acronym for Antipolo's finest products: Suman, Mangga and Kasoy and the Hamaka) Festival.

With Antipolo City,  Vice Governor Frisco San Juan Jr. and Board Member Enrico De Guzman, who were obviously enjoying their share of the Longest Suman sa Ibos.

The month of May has always been special to the hearts of the locals and tourists of the City of Antipolo as it celebrates a month long fiesta in commemoration to the centuries old tradition of Filipinos' pilgrimage to the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.


Approximately 12,000 bites of the Suman Sa Ibos centerpiece were shared by excited mall shoppers, whose kakanin experience became truly unique with a wide selection of dips and sauces that pair well with their favorite suman.

Along with the launch of the Suman Sa Ibos centerpiece is a culinary contest modernizing the traditional taste and presentation of Antipolo's popular delicacy. Selected Antipolenos vie for the title in making the Most Innovative Suman in the City.
Everything is delicious.  My personal favorite is the Manggo flavored Suman sa Ibos, although I still prefer the classic recipe. 
The Suman Festival at SM City Masinag, which hopefully will become a traditional event, was indeed a moment of celebration of Antipolo's rich heritage and culinary background.
