Alupi, Alupi, Alupi!
Alupi. This steamed cassava delicacy has a light sweet taste that is soft and chewy to the bite. Cooked in banana leaf, the wrapping adds a new dimension to its flavor. Buco strips make alupi more special.
Eating alupi is rather messy because of its sticky consistency. The best way to eat alupi is with a fork. Simply open the banana leaf wrapping to reveal a flat green-yellowish rectangular alupi delight. Slice away with your fork and enjoy with a bottle of cold Coke.
