Burnt Basque Cheesecake Meets Nostalgic Bibingka
Bibingka should be enjoyed and celebrated any time of the year, and Deli by Chele seconds this sentiment by serving up a luscious, elevated version of the Filipino holiday treat.
Meet the Chika (P960): the perfect freshly-baked excuse to sink your teeth into a Christmas treat any time, any day. This dessert creation of Chef Carlos Villaflor takes the best flavors and textures of the Basque burnt cheesecake and the Filipino bibingka. The result? Delicious aroma of banana burnt banana leaf, silky-soft cake with a balance of sweet and creamy, punctuated with cheese and grated egg yolk, which they cure in-house.
Order the Chika (6.5” cake for P960) via delibychele.com. Deli by Chele offers daily delivery except for Sundays. For inquiries call Deli By Chele at +63 917 160 2382.
Your Childhood ‘Ice Buko’ Made Better
Part and parcel to many Filipino childhood memories is the buko ice candy, or ‘ice buko.’ You’ve probably enjoyed many summers filling up long tubes of plastic with buko juice, or beelined to your favorite sari-sari store to buy some of these homemade popsicle using the coins you collected lying around the house. If you’re missing this treat, Balai Sorbetes is bringing back your childhood favorite with the nostalgic flavors of the buko sherbet!

Balai Sorbetes is all about the natural goodness, letting the refreshing flavors of coconuts and fruit shine in all of their five flavors. The family business takes inspiration from their late father’s favorite treat, buko lychee sherbet. Their take on the buko sherbets uses minimal sugar to let the buko and other featured fruits please the palate with every scoop and spoonful. These frozen desserts are also plant-based, as they use fruits, coconut juice, coconut cream, coconut meat, and sugar.
Their sherbets come in five flavors: Buko Lychee, Buko Mango, Buko Melon, Buko Calamansi Dalandan, and Buko Langka Lychee, and they are available by the pint and half-gallon. Order online here.
