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 RM2–RM3 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
