Yummy bibingka at Jim's Place

These are among the most delicious bibingkas (rice cakes) I have ever tasted.

Well, I am not even sure if I can call any of these a bibingka because there is something in it that is different from what we traditionally know as bibingka. Many of the latter come in smaller sizes than this one.

This particular bibingka is kind of a cross between a traditional bibingka and a... Kenny Rogers Roasters muffin!... and that's even downplaying the true merits of this comfort food.

Now, I am not really good at describing food in writing; so may I just invite you to take a bite of this bibingka at Jim's Place in Koronadal City. At P16 each, you will be wasting money on the shrinking dunkin' donut than on this one.

Jim's Place is near the corner of Gensan Drive and Zulueta Street (a.k.a. One-Way); a little past the roundball (rotunda) if you are coming in from Gen. Santos City.

If you are a native of Tacurong City, then it is of no wonder for you why such a yummy bibingka can come from a thing called Jim's Place. It is the very same Jim's Place that has brought you good food for many years back in your own hometown. The branch in Koronadal opened sometime in November last year and has since provided a good alternative to the other food venues in the South Cotabato capital.

Jim's Place is both a bakeshop and a restaurant. Food in its restaurant is served either by fastfood or a la carte. The place is Wi-Fi connected and is open 24 hours.

Jim's Place is open all day and night

The restaurant area in the interior is Wi-Fi connected

Various types of bread, cakes and pastries are sold 24/7 at the bakeshop


  1. Hi Daxie, I mentioned you in my new blogpost: http://knowread-knowrite.blogspot.com/2009/02/valentine-gift-books-for-avel-and-other.html

  2. Hi, Sir! Silly me, I missed your latest post when I last visited your site this morning. Thanks a lot, sir!

  3. Nami na gali ang Jim's place ba. I used to eat a lot sa Jim's place with my lola when I was young. A trip to Tacurong was a treat since we hail from Esperanza. Grocery sa Swana's tapos Jim's na :)

  4. Daxi! So you got enthralled with Jim's place bibingka too??I've been trying to discover also what was that "yummy" ingredient they put it! And there's plenty here in Tacurong!

  5. Psyche, amo gid. Barato gid man sa Swana's. Thanks :)

    Doc, my investigation as to the ingredient cannot seem to catch up with the speed by which these bibingkas get from the stall through my hands and into my tummy, hehehe! My diet program now lies in ruins! :)

  6. Waah. I seen Jim's place in Marbel tong nagpuli ako last December and last Feb.14-16, 2009 pero hindi ko pa natilawan ang bibingka nila didto.

    Salamat. Amping pirmi bro.
