Biko, Kalamay, Malagkit

I was excited to try the Biko at Cafe Olegario in Loay, Bohol. A friend couldn't stop gushing about it so sight unseen, I ordered 3 whole bilaos of it. It smelled great so that pushed up my taste expectations. It was firm to the bite while the burnt sugar topping was merely a thin glaze. It wasn't bad but it wasn't the best. I still think that the Biko at the now closed Blue Bacon and Green Eggs in Quezon City was at the top of the heap. It was tender and the topping was sinfully rich. Sigh! Now it is unreachable. So I must continue my search for better Biko. Or maybe I can just ask my lola's cook to teach me how to make it.
