Laoac, Pangasinan, Philippines
Tupig is a famous rice delicacy from Pangasinan. This stick rice cake wrapped in banana leaves can be bought in different towns. Laoac features two kinds of tupig - regular and black. Both are made with rice, sugar, milk, cheese, and margarine. The difference comes from the rice used. The regular tupig uses white rice from the local ricefields of Laoac while the black one uses black rice imported from the rice fields of Baguio. Each piece is sold for 5 pesos. You can also purchase a 1 box of 9 pieces for 50 pesos or a big box of 28 pieces for 150 pesos. If you want more variants of tupig, visit Laoac during their Tupig Festival where vendors line up on the streets to grill different tupig flavors.
