Ormoc: Cassava Cake from Young Attitudes
In Ormoc, he again posed the same question to his hosts and got the answer: cassava cake, with unique recipe from Young Attitudes. He thought it's just the usual cassava cake that can be bought anywhere else but when they got to a store in downtown Ormoc, he found out the cassava cake has it's own twist-- it's mixed with buco (young coconut) plus a sprinkling of cheese on top and packaged in mouth-watering bite-size pieces.
After buying a box (just one, ever wary of Cebu Pacific excess baggage charges), When Tutubi got back to the hostel, he got curious, opened the box and sampled the cassava cake. Tasting it was really good, even if he doesn't have a sweet tooth, he ate more than he usually does and stuffed the box inside the refrigerator lest he devours them all.
a quick photo of the box packaging, labeled Young Attitudes Cassava con Buco Delight, on Tutubi's bed in a room with poor fluorescent lighting :(
Cassava cake, the delicacy in bite-size, heavenly goodness eliminating the need for the knife (and fighting in case of uneven slicing)
Verdict: Young Attitudes: Ang pinakalami nga cassava cake!
Address: Bonifacio St., Ormoc City, Leyte

No information yet whether this Ormoc delicacy is available at SM or anywhere in Metro Manila so Tutubi requested his friend from Ormoc to bring one when he travels to Makati in the near future.

Big deal! As if cassava cake with cheese and buko is a new thing. Cassava with buko strips and cheese is common in Cavite and Laguna. FYI.

hi. I've actually read lots of your blogs and adventures. Nakakainggit. Waah.. I also love to travel but I think it's really expensive. Do you travel alone? Do you have or do you know a group where I can join who also loves to travel and who organizes and joins together to do trips like you do?=)

kyels, at least the buco does not come in strips, not even niyog (mature coconut) strips like others.
anonymous, traveling is not very expensive, there are ways to travel on a shoestring, you just have to know how or associate with people. i travel at least with a buddy, though sometimes i travel alone like this Ormoc trip which is actually a business trip

wow.. what a great looking cake with the cheese topping. I bet it's super delicious :)
Cassava cake is the winner Pinoy dish as far as I am concerned. Caucasians are so intrigued by its taste and with the macapuno topping they find it glorious :) When I bring cassava cake to an office potluck, it's one of the first to disappear from the table :)

bw, great idea. if i have foreigner visitors, i will let them try it among other food. :P
the dong, yeah, i was only able to drink pineapple shake there at Chito's Chow. i avoided bringing pineapples for i'm lazy to lug around during my Tacloban tour the following day :P
acey, kalami gyud!
Sidney, so you're another foreigner who loves it. i will promote it more. but I don't consider you a foreigner already. i saw you're absorbing pinoy traits already :P
