What is Ube?
Pronounced (pronounced OO-beh); Ube has grown to be a major staple in Southeast Asian countries. Native to Southeast Asia, Ube is a purple yam whose glimmering purple center, mild, sweet flavor, and coconut-like aroma have made it a popular ingredient in traditional Filipino sweets.
A Taste Of Filipino Heritage
“[Ube] is not just a gimmick of something purple. There’s a soul to its consumption. It’s part of the culture, it’s part of our heritage. Ube [isn’t] a fad. Even if it passes, it will still be part of our culture.” – Jeremy Villanueva,
Executive chef at Romulo Café, an award-winning Filipino restaurant in London.
