Vigan royal bibingka and more from Marsha’s Delicacies

Marsha's Delicacies

Relative to fine, clean and green roads in the north, Marsha’s Delicacies has raised the standard for convenient, easeful pit stops for travelers passing Ilocos. Their well-kept restrooms along with shelves decked out with the Ilocos Region’s cream of the cream have earned the pasalubong shop an enduring beeline since it opened its doors in Cabalanggan, Bantay, Ilocos Sur.

Veering away from old-school paper wrapping, their leading native cake, a repackaged version of the Vigan royal bibingka, comes in neat trays. Yes, Marsha’s Delicacies started a trend for more appealing local products. Clean is big in their vocabulary.

Marsha's Delicacies, Bantay

It usually takes me long to decide which stuff to bring home. As of late, sighted new items like crisp sesame seed-laced opia from San Juan, tubes of Vigan masa pudrida, colorful sayote atchara from Benguet; also select goodies from my hometown, Ilocos Norte, like Banna rice coffee, Adams bugnay wine, sorghum natural sweetener, Pasuquin Bakery biscocho; and other unpredictable items from parts beyond Ilocos.

The coffee shop is now serving modern flavored coolers in addition to indigenous refreshments like miki and sinanglao.

What about Ilocos bagnet and longaniza? Keen Marsha Navarro Chua just knows how to pack her shop significantly.

  1. We always try to stop at Marsha’s also for the corniks but for royal bibingka I love Abuelita in Vigan. At the Two Sisters my family likes their “torta” which they always ran out.

    • Torta is a personal fave. We sometimes stop by Two Sisters for bbq, but I’ve never encountered the Abuelita torta. I have to try their version. I’ve seen tortas only in Señorita Dulce. Btw, do you know where I can have the best pipian?

  2. I’ve never been to the actual Marsha’s Delicacies shop, but I love their royal bibingka, which you can easily buy from the vendors along the highway in Ilocos. It is always at the top of my list. Hmmm…now I’m craving…

  3. Ilang days po mag last yong Royal Bibingka nila? 😦 I so want to buy it as a pasalubong but we will have few stops before heading back home.
