If you missed Valentine’s Day by a day or two and forgot to give your loved one a gift, here’s your chance to redeem yourself by getting this perfect pahabol gift: a bouquet of puto!
We’re quickly learning that a bouquet of flowers can be so overrated when choosing a symbolic item for your expression of love. This puto-quet (short for puto bouquet) is pretty as it is multi-purpose: not only does it make for a beautiful table centerpiece, it can also fill your special one’s tummies!
The puto-quet by Manang Irene’s is the perfect late Valentine gift for anyone in your life: whether it’s your mom, your lola, your tita, or just anyone in your life with an affinity for local kakanin!
Manang Irene’s is a homegrown store from Isabela, popular for its native delicacies. The kutsinta is truly a hometown favorite, which has earned fans from all over the country! Manang Irene’s recently set up shop in Manila, so that the city’s foodies can have a taste of their amazing kakanin!
Fun fact: this puto is Chef JP Anglo’s favorite. So you can bet that the recipient of this puto-quet will not be left disappointed, as it tastes as good as it looks.
Manang Irene’s is based in Pasay City, and you can check out their puto-quet on their Facebook and Instagram page, @manang_irenes. They can also deliver more of their special kakanin items right to your doorstep for FREE in these areas: Pasay City, BGC, Makati, and even Quezon City (on Wednesdays)!
If you’re in a hurry to grab this for someone, they have booths at Central Square in BGC, and at the Banchetto Food Fair at SM Hypermarket in Taguig!
Tag someone you’d give this puto-quet to!
