Budbud Gourmet Suman began around 20 years ago. Our family hails from Dumaguete, Bais and Tanjay where suman is very popular. The flavored suman being sold there had never been seen in the Manila market so we saw an opportunity to take it here. We decided to elevate this famous Filipino dish by using all natural ingredients, no preservatives. And to ensure the high quality of our suman, we source the ingredients directly from the farmers and NGO communities.

Enamored, enchanted and thoroughly impressed are the words I’d use to best describe my Budbud Suman sampling experience. All 16 variants were exceptional in their own right. Each one was distinct, with their own flavor profile, taste and texture. Not one was better than the other. On the palate, one could deduce that the ingredients used were premium, and that the cooking process was masterfully executed.
"Budbud kabog, bingka dawa, suman—many names for this type of Pinoy rice cake but what I’d like to call it really is delicious!"
Andrew of Philippine Daily Inquirer
The culinary artists behind Budbud Gourmet Suman surely know how to bend traditions to new heights of brilliance.
A must-try Dumaguete delicacy is thebudbud, a rice cake traditionally made with rice cooked with coconut milk, sugar, and a bit of salt.
Ang Budbud Kabog ay kakaiba sa mga ordinaryong suman na gawa sa bigas or malagkit dahil itong Budbod Kabog ay gawa naman sa millet seed na marami duon sa Negros.
Gourmet Budbud offers the best of its kind in the country! Enjoy it with a hot cup of coffee or tsokolate. Have it for breakfast, dessert, or for a satisfying afternoon snack.
I tried and got reacquainted with some of the items but what stood out was the Budbud Gourmet Suman stall. I know this has been around for several years in the Salcedo and Legazpi markets but was quite surprised by the number of variants they have now.
Hoping to bring something they have long enjoyed in their provicne (Dumaguete) to Manila, Giannina Ocampo VanHoven's family decided to make and sell flavored suman.
