Chinese delicacies in demand

Tikoy and other popular Chinese delicacies are becoming more in demand as the BacoLaodiat Festival nears, a food vendor said yesterday.

“Even non-Chinese locals are buying tikoy. They say they also believe in the luck Chinese delicacies will bring to them this year,” vendor Kylie Bosales said.

Delicacies in demand are the peanut-flavored Chinese hopia and tikoy, or sticky rice cake, both sold at P60, she said.

A kilogram of plain tikoy is sold at P170, a half a kilo at P130, and a kilo of ube-flavored is sold at P180 and P140 for a half kilo.

“Customers are also welcome to taste fried tikoy for free,” she said.

They also sell 20-piece Chinese hopia pack sat P150, and 12-piece packs at P120.*KBC
