Tupig is another popular Filipino delicacy and pasalubong from northern part of Luzon specially in Ilocos and Pangasinan Region. This tupig was from Pangasinan, because we went there to visit my grandparents. Although this was a little bit smaller compare to another Region, tupig from Pangasinan had a lot ofcoconut strips and slightly sweeter. Tupig is almost similar to suman, only that is made from rice flour and coconut strips then grilled in hot charcoal.
