Bibingka This is not the usual bibingka that you can buy during the Christmas season. I first tasted this bibingka sometime in 2005 when my daughter's classmate who happens to hail from Ilocos gave us a box. At first glance, I thought its kalamay since it looks like a kalamay. But then, they pointed out that its bibingka. Okay, okay. Bibingka or kalamay or if this kakanin goes by other name in other parts of the Philippines, I don't have any problem with that since I like it very much. Very delicious especially if its cold (from the fridge). Luckily, I don't have to travel all the way to Ilocos because this happens to be the specialty in Cainta where my cousin lives. So every now and then whenever there's a family gathering, she would bring boxes and boxes of bibingka. Kain na!
