Whenever we go back to Manila from Tagaytay, we pass by the almost-always crowded Rowena's bakeshop. Most people go there to buy the pies - particularly, their buko pies which already overshadowed Colette's. I go there to buy my favorite Spicy Dilis.
I have the propensity for the crunchy stuff. And their dilis are uber crunchy. It's quite embarrassing especially when you're in a hushed placed and you start munching on it.
It's good because of the crunch and the taste. It is actually sweet and spicy. It is honey roasted sprinkled with sesame seed. It's a gouty arthritic's nightmare.
I believe this is best eaten when you're trying to keep awake. One dilis is enough to make you look for water and sweat and in my case, sniff (that happens to me when I eat spicy food because I start to have the runny nose - oh excuse me).
