In partnership with Smartcook USA | September 11, 2021 | 3 minute read


The -ber months are here! The very long Pinoy Christmas season begins, and we can again greet cold fronts with warm bibingka and puto bumbong. 

The bibingka in particular has a combination of sweet and savory that makes it the perfect bite anytime of the day. But, even the best of the classics need modern takes to refresh it and introduce it to a new generation of food lovers. 

Here are 3 bakers bringing bibingka to the modern age. Not only are they respectful renditions of a Filipino Christmas classic, they taste AND look super delicious too. It’s time to bring bibingka back!


Deli by Chele

Carlos Villaflor combined his culinary journey with his Filipino roots and thus The Chika was born. 

The Chika is a bibingka inspired by the Basque Burnt Cheesecake and a great example of Deli by Chele’s philosophy of combining traditional methods, local ingredients, and modern techniques. 

 Each bibingka is baked to order and can’t be rushed. So make sure you time your order right and your patience will be rewarded with cheesy bibingka goodness.


Dulce Bakery by Mela

Carmela Carating combines two classics with the Ultimate Pamaskong Cake: Puto bumbong and Bibingka.

In the bakery’s own words, the Ultimate Pamaskong Cake is “layers of Bibingka Chiffon Cake, Creamy Leche Flan, Ube Chiffon Cake then a layer of Latik, Muscovado and Pure Macapuno from Jardin ni Nanay. Covered in Ube Swiss Meringue then finally topped with Queso de Bola”

The Ultimate Pamaskong Cake looks like a great centerpiece for Noche Buena, but we won’t blame you if you had it all for yourself.


Adie’s Delight

As it’s name suggests, The Classic Triple Cheese Bibingka from Adie’s Delight is more about going back to the fundamentals. Instead of going for a zany, over the top version, The Classic Triple Cheese Bibingka is made from real galapong and topped with Queso De Bola. 

The bibingka from Adie’s Delight is a great example of elevating a dish through technique and high-quality ingredients.
