During my recent trip to Ipoh, I passed by Gunung Rapat on the outskirt of Ipoh town which is famous for its Hiong Piah.What is Hiong Piah? 'Hiong' in chinese means 'fragrant' and 'Piah' means 'biscuit'. It is type of biscuit which is bake til crispy on the outside and has a sticky sweet filling on the inside. What is so special about this biscuit in Gunung Rapat is that it is charboil which means it uses charcoal to bake it. It has a nice crunchy shell with a fragrant aroma when you bite into it.
This is how Hiong Piah looks like...................
The sweet and sticky filling on the inside...............
