Aling Emma

Aling Emma in her daster

For years I would buy espasol, bibingka, and most frequently the Pinatuyuan sa Gata freshwater shrimps viand from Aling Emma. Her shack of a shop is in Pagsanjan, Laguna along the main highway in the poblacion. One day the shop was gone from the old location. Then, months later I was able to locate her to this new one, still in the poblacion and not that far from the original one. It’s still a shack, which I like. I’m just truly glad that there’s still Aling Emma and her tiny food shop, my favored stop in Laguna.

Bibingka Oven

A perfect bibingka is superior to any perfect pancakes out there. Whatever fruit, sauce or filling one can add to a pancake, the same can be done to a bibingka but resulting into a far more superior hot cake in taste minus the horrendous price.

Also known as bibingka.
There are quite a number of variations of bibingka all over the country and this is just one of those.
