Biko is a traditional Filipino delicacy that is enjoyed in our house come the holidays. It is made by Kuya Iyong, our jack of all trades handyman, who harvests the coconut component of the delicacy himself from the trees that grow around our house. Biko is made with equal parts of glutinous rice, coconut milk, water, brown sugar, and garnished with latik. Kuya Iyong made this latest batch of biko a bit more special though, one bilao with coconut shreds and another with langka. It makes waiting for Christmas Day a whole lot more yummy.
Wishing all of you joy and fantastic food this Christmas Eve!
