THE UNDAS FILIPINO FOOD TRADITION
You will most likely feast on savory pork or chicken adobo, spaghetti, macaroni salad or a certain type of pancit, be it bihon, canton, habhab, or bam-i, which has both pancit and vermicelli noodles. Some families will serve up the mouthwatering lechon kawali or an entire lechon altogether.
Because everyone will need to be handed snacks, too, or midnight and early-morning refreshments, there will surely be kakanins in the mix – sapin-sapin, palitaw, suman sa lihiya, biko, puto bumbong, ube halaya, puto puti, pichi-pichi, all sweet and satisfying.
The sticky kakanins are a perfect representation of the affection and unity that characterizes the Pinoy family. Bonding over delicious Filipino food, sharing stories, enjoying each other’s company, reveling in the unique custom of Undas.
