Original Biscocho Haus (2 of 4)

Continuing the posts about the pasalubong I took home from Original Biscocho Haus:


Barquillos (p28). Another popular food product from Iloilo. Also known as wafer rolls, barquillos is of Spanish origin, and it tasted similar to the sugar cones used in eating ice cream.

Buco Pandan Barquillos

Buco Pandan Barquillos (p28). Given the name, it did has a hint of buco pandan, and it was much thicker than the normal ones. I still love the normal barquillos, but this one was good, too.


Barquiron (small - p36). Bite size of barquillos with polvoron filling inside. This is my sister's favorite... I had to buy two bags of this one because I know she can eat one bag in just one sitting. Word of caution, though, the polvoron filling can be a cause for choking, so eat with ease.

My brother actually told me the best way of eating it was to suck the powder on one end, and you guessed it, the polvoron shoot straight in my throat. If somebody told you it was the best way of eating it, don't believe. Hahaha.

Cookies and Cream Merengue

Cookies and Cream Merengue (p12). Growing up, I loved eating merengue in different colors, but always in the same flavor. Seeing there's one flavored with cookies and cream, I immediately grabbed a pack of it. It still tasted like the normal merengue, but the flavor of the cookies was really distinct as well.

Part 3 next Friday.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
