If you’re like me, then your concept of piaya is the flaky starchy flat disc filled with a smattering of molasses. I was surprised to hear, then, when our Lola offered us some “authentic” piaya from bacolod. I’ve already had full meal and can barely eat anything else, so naturally, i said yes.

The piaya was heated before it was served to me. Instead of the usual powdery and extremely thin layers, it only had one very thin crispy outer shell. The bite was pretty chewy – another quality that’s quite different from the normal piaya. The inside of the shell was covered in molasses and sesame seed.

So how did I find it? At its most basic, Piaya is a very simple sweet treat. What sets this one apart is its texture — crispy outside and chewy inside. The heat brought out the taste of the molasses and gave the treat its chewiness.

If you like simple Filipino treats, you have to try Bailon’s Piaya. It’s uncomplicated, fun to eat, and just delicious.
