10 Sweet Filipino Dessert Spots in the Upper Peninsula
The Binka Bites concept is a fun ode to owners Jo and Jas Ongsiako’s childhood favorite food, bibingka—a chewy coconut and rice flour cake. The bakery walk-up window offers different flavored, bite-sized versions of bibingka (or bibingka-inspired goods, like mochi muffins), both sweet and savory. Try an ube cupcake topped with a square of leche flan or a small heap of langka or macapuno. Or a special mini cake made to order with black sesame whipped cream, sliced banana, and a drizzle of maple syrup. On the savory side, sink your teeth into a honey-cheddar-jalapeño or pepperoni BinkaPizza muffin. The drinks game is strong, too, presenting instant new classics such as calamansi matcha and dulce de leche milk tea.
