About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Bibingka Galapong

    Definitely much better than the bibingka of the big city: Paete's bibingka made of galapong, young coconut, and salted egg cooked in clay pots with the top also heated as shown below:

    the bibingka: serve hot with butter

    bibingka vendor at the Paete public market near the national highway.

    if you knew Paete to be just the town of carvings, lanzones, and moving saints during Holy Week, you're missing out on so many things.

    One of these days, I'll blog about other uniquely Paete culinary inventions: minani, minanok, bibingkang hipon, ginataang santol with alamang et al. Will also look for recipes.

    Other versions of bibingka include bibingkang abnoy of Pateros made from unfertilized duck eggs with rotten smell, bibingkang itlog (the less foul-smelling version in Laguna).

    Famous restaurants/outlets selling bibingka are Aling Nena's Bibingka in Cubao, Quezon City, Ferino's Bibingka (the self-proclaimed best bibingka in the Philippines) and also the new Bibingkinitan food carts in malls.

    Psst, don't forget the shingaling! Tasty! I don't remember you tasting your versin of bibingka. :(
    paete should be a major tourist draw.

    ei resty,

    we don't call them shingaling like those peddled in Calamba. Call them "mayklu". My brother's friend who also visited Paete called them "pritong pancit" ehehe

    Looking for bibingka recipe got me here.
    Your bibingka capture makes me want just that kind of bibingka. Too bad, too far away from Paete.
    Do you have the recipe?

    At Jan 3, 2010, 12:08:00 PM, Blogger GingGoy said...

    anonymous, will ask around for the bibingka recipe (galapong is rice flour) with buko (young coconuts) and sometimes with salted egg cooked in clay pots and cooked in traditional charcoal smoky flavor
