Aling Ika's Bibingkoy

Bibingkoy is one of the most famous Caviteñean kakanin aside from the Samala rice cakes. It's like a combination of tikoy, buchi and ginataan.


Made of glutinuous rice stuffed with boiled mongo but instead of fried like buchi it is baked in an old style oven then topped with coconut cream sauce with sago(tapioca) langka(jackfruit) and kaong(sugar palms) although the last two had been omitted over the years to cut cost.

Only one name comes to mind when we hear bibingkoy - Aling Ika's Carinderia in Cavite City Public Market. Her bibingkoy is famous way back before the Japanese occupation and war era. Good thing Aling Ika’s children had taken over to continue the bibingkoy legacy so up to now Caviteños can still savor and enjoy this kakanin at the public market. According to my mom my great great grandmother used to make this too.

Another fave of mine and most children from Aling Ika is this ube kalamay which is also serve with coconut cream sauce like in bibingkoy.



Que sabroso !

    1. Too bad I was too young to taste the lumpia fresca and pancit but I'm sure my mom and her cousins enjoyed it in their younger years :)

    1. I think there is a special oven to cook bibingkoy shown when this was featured in a local travel and food show but of course Aling Ika's children didn't share the recipe. Just a glance how it is made.

  6. I love this dessert/merienda. When we moved to Olongapo, there was a similar item on sale at the Bajac Bajac market but it was made by a lady from Bataan. There was also a version sold at Dinalupihan, Bataan Public Market.
