Pasalubong mula sa Norte: Marsha’s Delicacies.
Royal bibingka, it was the first time I heard the term when I was in Ilocos Sur when our tour guide was talking about the delicious delicacies that we could taste in Vigan and he was especially excited about the Royal Bibingka and the Lomi from Marsha’s.
Soon enough before taking the journey back to the Capital we stopped by Marsha’s Delicacy it’s a few meters away from Vigan town proper. When we got there, I met the owner herself who then offered us her specialties which was a lot and we were still full from our late dinner. When she brought a tray of bowls filled with lomi I told my friend that I would only eat half and we should just share but as I took a sip of those warm soup and a spoonful of noodles, I was absolutely hooked! Addicted! Can’t stop eating, and to my surprise I managed to finish a whole bowl. Their Lomi is definitely a must try!
Then we had their royal bibingka which at first I thought was just like the regular bibingka we see sold during Christmas season but it was definitely different. It looked like a cassava cake, it definitely has the consistency only a bit more softer and chewier but the flavor was really different. More milky and more sweeter. I loved it, too!
Marsha’s also has a variety of dessert and meals that you could order. You should definitely definitely bring your family or friends before heading back to Manila. Im sure you’ll love their offerings. People there are very friendly, too!
