Due to the Covid 19 outbreak, our Malaysian government has enforced a Movement Control Order which has been extended to 12 May 2020. Most of the existing businesses especially those not dealing with groceries or food are closed down. Therefore, if the article on shopping places would no longer be relevant during this period.

Delicious Hiong Piah biscuits from Gunung Rapat, Perak

Food and Drinks

When my friend goes back her hometown in Taiping, she would stop by on her way back to buy some hiong piah (heong peah) biscuits for me and my family. Hiong piah is a type of biscuit baked using traditional charbroil method.

In the past, this biscuits contains lard (pork oil) as part of their maltose filling to enhance the taste. But now, it is not longer being used as part of the ingredients.

If my friend buys it direct from the source and meant for home consumption, the packing is very simple:

Hiong Piah normal and charcoal

But if it is meant as gift, then the packing would come in a more beautiful packaging complete with individual packs:

There are 2 types of hiong piah. The original (above) and the charcoal type (black colour) (below). The biscuits are now very popular- hence you need not travel all the way to Ipoh to buy them. Certain shops selling Chinese medicine or provision shops in the Klang Valley also sells these biscuits.

If you are going overseas to visit some Malaysian friends, you may want to consider buying this as a gift, or other much missed foodstuff like Ipoh White Coffee, premix cooking paste and Maggi mee.

The ingredients used to make the hiong piah: wheat flour, sugar, maltose, palm oil, onion, salt and sesame.
