Load Up on Kakanin at Jojie's Painitang Bol-anon

We all know Bohol is famous for a lot of delicacies that tickle the fancy of local and foreign tourists. Peanut kisses, calamay, and ube jam are but some of the more popular of these delicacies. There's also a place in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines that prides itself of delicious kakanin, the popular Filipino dessert items. Most of these sweet creations uses malagkit or glutinous rice as a main ingredient. While the others that do not utilize malagkit uses local root crops that are starchy such as camote and kamanting or cassava.

During the last day of the Seas The Day Bohol Tour right before we boarded the fastcraft that will take us back to Cebu, #CBCTravelNation bloggers had breakfast at Jojie's Painitang Bol-anon at the ground floor of City Square Mall in Tagbilaran City.

Painitang Bol-anon: What's In A Name? 

According to a post at the Facebook fan page of Jojie's Painitang Bol-anon, Painitang Bol-anon means tea time Bohol style. Painit means tea or a hot beverage in the Visayan or Cebuano dialect and Bol-anon refers to a Bohol native.


Breakfast at Jojie's saw us enjoying kosahos baboy, kosahos baka, chinorizo, vegetable lumpia, and inun-unang piniritong tulingan. The kosahos baboy tasted a lot like bacon. And everyone loved the chinorizo too. Chinorizo was my personal favorite. Minced pork belly meat sauteed in vinegar. It kind of reminded me of the liempo sisig at KM 1 Diner in Ermita, Manila.

Kakanin Party

We barely finished breakfast when a lot of Jojie's kakanin were brought to our table. There was puto balanghoy or rice cake with cassava.There was dinumugan or a sweet banana dish that tastes like nilusak. Then there was biko dukot, another kind of rice cake. Also served was cassava cake, and bibingka Boholana. I particularly liked the cassava cake. How I loved it that Ma'am Jojie gave the bloggers half a box of biko dukot and half a box of cassava cake as pasalubong items.
