In my travels I can say that I've encountered the best and the strangest of this food.
The Best Bibingka
My visit in Marinduque last April 2011 was my most memorable trip ever not only because it was my very first solo travel but also of the awesome foods I experienced there. Among the foods I've tasted in Marinduque, their bibingka is my most favorite. This special bibingka is found only in Boac, the province's capital.

The Strangest Bibingka
Just this morning, I've tasted the strangest bibingka. Far different from other bibingkas, Pateros' Bibingkang Abnoy tastes weird and smells awful. Surely, the picky eaters would never dare to taste or even get near this strange food. Its main ingredient is Pateros' very own abnoy egg (undeveloped duck eggs).

But I'm not a picky eater (medyo lang), so I bravely ate a slice of Bibingkang Abnoy dipped in vinegar. It actually tastes nicer when dipped in vinegar. Its texture is more like a scrambled egg than a bibingka.
The Best vs The Strangest
To try the best is truly awesome but experiencing both the best and strangest is even greater than the word awesome. Boac Bibingka exemplifies delight and greatness while the Bibingkang Abnoy, the exoticism and difference.
Just like in traveling our country, you will not experience the best of the Philippines without giving a try the strangest, weirdest, and the most exotic.
