Taiping Heo Pia

Bidor has Kai Chai Peng, Serem­ban has Siew Pao and Ipoh has Pomelo.

When it comes to my home­town Taip­ing, it must be Heo Pia.

The name Heo Pia (Xiang Bing in Man­darin or Heong Peng in Can­tonese) lit­er­ally means “aro­matic biscuit”.

It’s crispy on the out­side with lots of sesame, and it has a layer of sticky and sweet caramel on the inside.

There are many famous Heo Pia in Taip­ing but I par­tic­u­larly like the one from Aulong (another small town in Taip­ing) because it’s not too sweet.

The owner made a garage beside the house to bake and sell biscuits.

Beside Heo Pia, there are all kinds of bis­cuits priced around RM2RM3 per pack.

Once you go in, it’s very dif­fi­cult to come out with empty hands because they are cheap and they look tasty.

That day when I wanted to bring my col­leagues there, I couldn’t find the place and I tried Google but with no luck. I have to ask around before reach­ing the destination.

So I thought it’s good to write this post for oth­ers to find it easily.

The fol­low­ing Google Maps is just an approx­i­mate loca­tion because that road is not labeled in Google Maps. Find the exact address below.

The shop house has only one small sign board that reads “Heo Pia sold here”.

Address: No. 768 Lorong 29, Aulong Baru, 34000 Taip­ing, Perak.
Tele­phone: +605–808-7608
