Litratong Pinoy: Kinagisnan



Noong bata pa ako, pinakapaborito ko ang Linggo.
Dahil tuwing Linggo, ang bibingka at sapin-sapin ang aming almusal.

When I was young, Sunday was my favorite day.
Because every Sunday, we would have the yummy bibingka and sapin-sapin as our breakfast.


"No Filipino Christmas is complete without Bibingka. Bibingka, is a rice cake similar to the Western pancake in appearance. In taste, texture and way of cooking, however, they are very much different from each other. Bibingka is made from galapong, baked in a special clay pot, lined with a piece of banana leaf, with live coals on top and underneath. It is topped with slices of kesong puti (white cheese) and itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs). The newly-cooked bibingka is spread with butter and sometimes sprinkled with sugar then served with niyog (grated coconut). Galapong is glutinous rice soaked in water then ground with the water to form either a batter or a dough, depending on what the cooked dish is supposed to be."
"Filipino Sapin-Sapin is made from rice flour or rice that has been soaked overnight then crushed into a paste, sometimes yams or yam flour, coconut milk and sugar. Each layer is tinted (the bottom one a deep ube-like purple, the middle a golden yolk yellow,the top one white), and steamed before the next layer is added. This famous Sapin-Sapin originated from the northern part of the Philippines, the province of Abra."
Ito ang aking lahok sa Litratong Pinoy.

Hi Jo. Ako rin, Linggo ang paborito kong araw nung bata pa ako kasi lahat kami ay nanananghalian sa bahay ng lolo at lola namin. Maraming kakanin, tulad ng bibingka at mga suman na snacks naman kinahapunan. Isa sa mga masasarap na bibingkang nakain ko na ay yung galing sa Lucban. Nami-miss ko ito at tuwing sa pagbakasyon lang sa Pinas ulit natitikman.

Ang kakanin daw ay simbolo ng pagiging pamilya ng isang pamilya, ang pagkakadikit-dikit :)

Magandang simbolo, masarap pa, lol!

JO said...

Hi ZJ,
Meron naman nabibilhan dito, kaya lang iba talaga ang gawa sa Pinas no?

Hi Julie,
Tumpak!

Hi Girlie,
Suwerte mo at kahit anong oras, mabilis ka lang makakabili diyan.

Hi Butchay,
Basta't meron, talagang kumakain ako. Bihira lang kasi ako makatikim niyan dito.

JO said...

Hi Cheh,
Salamat sa pag bisita.

Hi Meeya,
Yup, iba talaga ang tatak Pinoy.

Hi Marites,
Hindi rin ako marunong gumawa, matrabaho kasi.

This looks delicious. One of the things I love about travelling is trying the foods from other places. Even within the US, we have such regional differences, that's it's fun to branch out whenever we can.

Great stuff. Bibingka is well-known in New York foodies as Philippine pancakes ... thanks to Cendrillon Restaurant which popularized it. Thanks for the post (I will try to make sapin sapin from your description) and thanks for visiting my ilio.ph blog.

Hi HipMom,
Glad to hear you love trying out different delicacies.

Hi Ken,
We have it here too, but it just doesn't taste the same.

Hi Ian,

Hi Mirage,
Parehas pa la tayo...

Hi Fenny,
Glad to see you back here again.

Hi FortuitousFaery,
Galing sa palengke, kaya pang breakfast.

Hi Tani,
Thanks! But no thanks to hot choco. I don't drink anything hot.

Hi Tanchi,
Salamat!

Hi JO!

Mga kakanin nga ang talagang halos lahat yata tayo ay nakagisnan! Pinoy na pinoy at kahit tuloy nasa ibang bansa na ay nagpipilit mahanap at matikman.

Have a great weekend!

Toni said...

Bibingka and sapin-sapin! Nakakabusog dahil napakafilling. Mmm. I'm craving for freshly made bibingka tuloy. Yun tipong nagmemelt yun butter as soon as you pat it on the bibingka. Ayayay!

JO said...

Hi Toni,
Well, at least it is within your reach... ",) ikain mo na lang ako.
