Suman Latik

Sanchez Mira

Suman Latik (banana leaf-wrapped rice cake with caramelized coconut) is a staple dessert among Cagayanos. Each Suman latik becomes distinct because of the latik or the coconut caramel that serves as a topping or spread.

Barangay Nagrangtayan earned the distinction of having the best suman latik. In fact, they have their own Suman Latik Festival to celebrate this ingenuity and fame.
