Quan’s Puto Lanson

The sight Puto Lanson or Puto Taktak  would always bring  back beautiful childhood memories in my mind. For those who don’t know Puto Lanson  or Puto Taktak, it is a traditional Filipino delicacy  which is  made from grated cassava that has been thoroughly dried, mixed with  sugar, young coconut and steamed. A long time ago in the farm where I grew up, some folks would make Puto Lanson or Puto Taktak and sell afterwards. The way they prepared this delicacy was even quite interesting compared to how it is being prepared today. At that time, I saw our neighbor using an improvised steamer using an earthen pot  with water inside covered with banana leaf and has the hole at the center of the banana leaf wherein the steam would come out. The mould wherein the desiccated cassava was  placed was  simply made of recycled  tin can  (usually recycled  from an empty  condensed milk tin can) . The bottom of the tin can  usually have nail holes   so that the steam can pass through.  After few minutes of steaming,   the cassava turned  a bit darker and a bit translucent – meaning that the puto taktak was  ready. They  would then  release the content of can in the plate, hence the name “Taktak”.  They would then brushed it with margarine.

Today, Puto Lanson  or Puto Taktak  is still very much alive. At Quan, Delicacies Puto Lanson is served in two variants: the original or the usual Puto Taktak and one with Ube flavor. These variants are served in squares as they were cooked in a baking pan. I love  eating Puto Lanson along with sodas or with hot coffee or chocolate  as a merienda in the afternoon. You can order this delicacy at any Quan outlets.
