A Rice Cake Called "Espasol"

Espasol is a type of rice cake that is said to have originated from the province of Laguna. It is made from rice flour cooked in coconut milk and sweetened coconut strips. The mixture is then shaped into tubes and dredged with toasted rice flour. Espasol can be wrapped in Japanese paper or banana leaves.

The espasol shown in the photos is part of a set of four sold for 100 pesos in Tagaytay City. It is sold by ambulant vendors who sell their wares at the city's public market. The four-for-100 promo was available in 2012. Perhaps the price has increased after almost two years.
