Bingka from Mohon

Posted by JayPee Sunday, July 25, 2010

Bingkahan sa Mohon makes one of the most popular bingkas in Iloilo City. It has been one of my blog frustrations before not having a feature on them.I've tried many times before but I ended up with more frustrations - having no more bingkas left or my reserved order was given to others. It's not easy to get them since I live far from where they are located.But finally I ended this streak of bad luck; I got "tons" of bingka from Mohon and I loved it! What makes it delicious aside from the concoction is the amount of coconut strips in each of these small round bingkas. While others have microscopic amount, Mohon bingkas have more than enough that sometimes it feels like eating bucayo rather than bingka.
Sold for PhP 10 per pack of four, this quick fix will surely makes one crave for more and oftentimes come back and buy some more. Good thing I bought 5 packs that time, more than enough for me to savour every bite. With the heat coming from above one can expect these bingkas slight more brown on top and that makes it more appetizing.The inside reveals a gooey concoction of coconut strips with rice flour, milk, sugar and others. Some may have better concoction but these coconut strips makes Mohon bingkas stand out among the rest in Iloilo and perhaps almost an iconic status.


  1. Hey keep posting such good and meaningful articles.

  2. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
