Everybody Loves A Man Slut (Puto)

They even have it boxed especially for us Filipinas! After all, Puto is our favorite 😂 #PinoyPride!

We all love a good food item lost in translation. I found one today in Penzance while shopping with my mother in the oriental supermarket.

Better yet it was a Filipino product known as “Puto”.

Puto is a type of steamed rice cake usually served as snack or as accompaniment to savory dishes such as dinuguan or pancit in Philippine cuisine and believed to be derived from Indian puttu of Kerala origin.

The Spanish word Puto means Slut (in the masculine form). As I am sure you can imagine this had me laughing out loud.

And so I just had to share!

XOXOXOX

    Laughed quite hard at this. Puto also means man slut in Portuguese. I once spilt my coffee to hear ‘Sanita’ being used as a name over the radio. In Portuguese it means toilet.
