Bibingka Samala


Samala Rice Cakes or more popularly called Bibingka Samala is one of the most popular delicacy proudly Cavite City made. It is made of glutinous rice, coconut milk and sugar that comes in two flavors the traditional "malagkit" and this one which is "pinipig." It is sold in half and whole.


Although it is thinner and doesn't taste now as delicious as it was when I was a little girl still it is the most famous "pang-regalo" of the Caviteños when they are visiting friends or for people in the offices that they process their important documents. It is also sometimes serve on parties and celebrations.


Up close with the popular Bibingka Samala ^_^


Another famous Samala delicacy is the Sapin-Sapin but I got disappointed with its new look now even it is still in the traditional square box but when you open it what you will find is no longer the round sapin-sapin white on top then violet and yellow but instead bite size pieces like tikoy each wrapped in plastic. I guess I have to content myself with Dolor's Sapin-Sapin.

  1. Is Samala bibingka from Cavite City or is it from Kalsadang Luma, Imus? Are they the same people who make maja blanca and cassava cake?

  2. Samala Bibingka is purely from Cavite City by the Samala Family but they have branches where they sell this famous rice cake.

  7. I think your comment about bibingka as gifts to people in your office who process your document was quite inappropriate and irrelevant.
