Ketupat

The puso or hanging rice of Cebu isn’t local in that city as what several have claimed¬† in their writings (even without basis). I’ve eaten puso in Leyte and Negros provinces and have seen it outside the country in Indonesia. Finally I got snaphots of it in Brunei where I had it with satay and where it’s called ketupat.

Sliced open by knife, same as how they do it with puso in Cebu

Satay stall in Bandar Seri Begawan where ketupat is 1 BND for 3 pieces. Paired with satay when eaten, just like how it's paired with skewered barbeque in Cebu
