Foodie Friday: Blood Rice Cake

Blood rice cake: mochi-like rice popsicle

blood rice cake

Sometimes I try not to think too much about what I’m actually eating. Especially when it comes to stuff like pigs’ blood. Blood rice cake is sticky rice mixed with pigs’ blood. Thankfully, it’s covered in peanut powder and garnished with cilantro.

It’s jello-like in its consistency (which is what I pretended I was really eating). There’s a very subtle pork flavor to it. Definitely an interesting eat…as long as you don’t think too much about it.

Any foods you like to disguise?

Off the Grid


  1. I don’t think I could stomach that one! I’m pretty good at mind over matter, but I doubt I’d be in that case. :/

  2. Interesting. Filipinos have a dish using pig blood called dinuguan. I used to eat it as a kid and liked it until I discovered what it was made from. My mom comvinced me to give it a try by calling it chocolate meat. Clever that the blood rice cake is disguised as a popsicle.
