Sorry, since I am entitled to my own opinion, I would say that this is the best kutsinta in the Philippines! :)
Kutsinta, or little rice cakes with a gelatinous texture, has been a Filipino favorite for merienda or dessert. They are usually made and served as round cakes, but in Marikina's Maning's kutsinta, they make them in bilaos, or big round rattan trays.

When you step into their store to buy a whole bilao or even one fourth (yes, they retail), you will be greeted by the fragrance of newly-cooked kutsinta: the smell of sugar, langka (jackfruit) and butter saying hello to all frequent customers. You have to try their kutsinta!

And I do step into their store...

...and help out? Hehe!

They also serve very good puto, it's thick unlike your regular puto, and it is topped with cheese and grated salted egg. Another must-try!

This is Nanay (take note, she doesn't want to be called "lola"!) who mans the store all day, all week. She has two assistants to attend to all the people buying kutsinta and puto. Better drop by early, because like they say, these sell like hotcakes! :)
