It’s no surprise why Pinoys love mango sticky rice – we’re suckers for rice desserts that are sweet, creamy, and chewy (hello, kakanin), and we’re also obsessed with anything that involves the native mango.
Pandemic-born local business Man and Mangoes’ owner James Yao is exactly the same – he loved the popular Thai dessert delicacy so much, that he started selling it from home to friends and family in April 2020. Shortly after, he introduced Filipino twists to the exotic dessert – Man and Mangoes’ mango sticky rice now comes in a pretty, assorted platter of coconut, ube, and pandan flavors.
All rice for Man and Mangoes’ sticky rice, which is creamy, soft, chewy, and moist; the rice is really soaked in its respective sauces. You’ll subtly taste the aromatic, refreshing taste of pandan; the sweet, earthy taste of ube; and the creamy, tropical taste of coconut. Each sticky rice flavor is complemented by the sweet-sour thick slices of fresh, ripe mango generously loaded on top.
Everything is made creamier with the sweet coconut milk each platter comes with.
The assorted party platter costs P1,200, and is good to share with a group of six to eight people. For just the ube flavor in one platter, that costs P320, while the regular mango sticky rice costs P300.
Man and Mangoes’ ingredients are all sourced locally – their fresh, quality mangoes are directly picked by Filipino farmers from Guimaras, Davao, and other local farms.
Man and Mangoes is based in Wack Wack, Mandaluyong City. You can place your orders via Instagram. – Rappler.com
