The BBK Story
Bawat Piraso, Pilipinong Gawa
Bibingkinitan (BBK) first opened in 2006 with a mission to reinvent the bibingka experience by making it smaller and available throughout the Philippines all year around. Believing in the quality of Filipino cuisine, BBK created a unique “for Filipinos by Filipinos” supply chain by employing fresh ingredients from local farms all over the country.
A bite into a BBK bibingka is a visit to the natural richness of the provinces. A BBK bibingka is made from rice flour sourced from farmers in Isabela, Tuguegarao, and Northern Luzon. The recipe incorporates cane sugar from Bacolod and coconut milk from Laguna. We get shipments of fresh eggs from Batangas and wrap all of our bibingkas in banana leaves harvested from the Aetas in Tarlac and farms in Laguna.
Our bibingka experience is made complete with our BBK line of drinks that continues to serve traditional Kapeng Barako, a coffee made from the beans in the Philippines as well as Tsokolate de Batirol, a hot chocolate drink made from nibs of fermented pure (100%) cacao beans without added ingredients and additives. Our Kapeng Barako is made with cacao grown by farmers in Cavite. Meanwhile, our Tsokolate de Batirol can be considered the hearty product of our farmers in Batangas, Laguna, and Cavite.
“Support Locale” has recently come into the spotlight for informed Filipino consumers, but has been a store virtue since BBK’s early beginnings. We employ Filipino talents, techniques, and recipes from the farmhands in the provinces to our store owners and employees in Metro Manila. Supporting the local economy while bringing Filipino warmth and comfort to our customers is our version of salo-salo: a Filipino term often used to describe times of togetherness and community. Sa BBK, Bawat Piraso ng Bibingka, Pilipinong Gawa.
