Bibingka is an after-Simbang Gabi staple, fueling groggy mass-goers to keep on their day despite the early start. We’ve seen many takes on the dish. But there’s nothing quite like the back-to-basics version. Felymar’s Bibingka does just that, complete with the smokey flavor and the banana leaf aroma. And the best part—you can have it even if it’s not Christmas.
We’ll be honest, the place is not somewhere you’d wanna stick around in. But you’ll be glad you braved the scruffy ambience of the Tayuman carinderia to get their fluffy bibingkas. The rice flour taste comes through the most, but the flavors from the salted egg and cheese aren’t completely lost. And hey, for just PHP45 it’s a pretty good deal for a filling merienda.
