Kaibigan Bakery : Traditional Sopas de Tanza Biscuits

Kaibigan Bakery is a well-known institution within the town of Tanza, Cavite.  I took time to visit the Public Market ( Pamilihang Bayan ) since my aunts were craving of an authentic native biscuits from the town. Kaibigan mean ” friend” in the Tagalog language.

lenguas, camachile and sopas de Tanza biscuit for sale in local market

I first tasted this biscuit more a decade ago, when we visited the public market. This is one of the best food souvenir ( pasalubongs ) from the town. The retail price for the biscuit in plastic container is Php 180.00 but they would give small discounts to bulk orders.

This biscuit is called ” Sopas de Tanza” which was featured in many television shows. This is best paired with coffee , chocolate or tea.

The biscuits are baked in pugon using local wood, Hence enhancing the taste.  The bakery also makes different kinds of biscuits like camachile, gurgurya, lengua de gato among others.

One of the famous clientele of this bakery are the Aguinaldo’s, Abaya and Viratas. This was also served to foreign dignitaries whenever they are in Cavite.

Kaibigan bakery was founded in 1920 but some say that the recipe was over 100 years ago. The recipe was already with the family making the biscuit for at least 40 years before the bakery was established.

Dr. Jose Rizal was given some sopas biscuits , when a friend from Santa Cruz de Malabon ( present day Tanza) gave him.

There were different theories behind the name of this biscuit, One of the the more popular one was said that one of the bakers originate from the Visayan region. SOPAS means biscuit in the Visayan language.

Another theory is that it looks like sopas or pasta . Another one is that some locals would dip the biscuit in coffees or hot chocolate, This would like pasta floating, hence the name.
