Buchi or Butsi is a rice cake made from sweet rice flour that is molded into shape with a sweet bean paste filling and sesame seed coating. This delectable treat is deep fried under high heat before serving.

I remember ordering buchi as a dessert after having some Siopao Asado. It really tastes great especially when you have the gulaman drink by your side.
