Someone has figured out (once again) how to energize a traditional carbo-loaded treat for our appetites to rediscover. Suman, which is Filipino for glutinous rice rolls wrapped in banana leaves, has been selling like hotcakes in a Manila store called Tita Lynn’s. The store offers plump sumans with a variety of fillings such as chocolate, mango, purple yam and peanut butter. People line up and buy mass quantities at a time to stock up. The place has frequently closed by 2:30 pm because it simply does not have enough supply to meet demand. Store hours are supposed to be from 12 noon to 12 midnight. Expansion is imminent.
