"Tupig" is a popular native delicacy from Pangasinan made from ground glutinous rice and coconut strips wrapped in banana leaves and cooked over live charcoal. What I love about tupig is its stickiness, the texture of the coconut in every bite and the burnt flavor of the banana leaves. It is commonly sold in stalls along the hi-way of Pangasinan at 100 pesos for 5 packs with 5 pieces of tupig each pack. But if you're taking the bus, you'll also catch tupig vendors in the bus stops.
Tupig-making is one of the major sources of livelihood in the province of Pangasinan. Don't forget to bring home some of these as pasalubong when you visit the province.
