Original Biscocho Haus

Biscocho Haus in Iloilo

Filipinos know that no vacation is complete without buying some souvenir items or “pasalubong” to give to loved ones back home. And when you visit Iloilo, you can’t leave without grabbing a few bags of Biscocho Haus’ delightful pastries en route to your next destination.

Every province in the Philippines boasts of its own regional delicacy, and Iloilo is no exception; their most popular pastry is the biscocho, of which Biscocho Haus specializes in. This twice-baked bread is coated with layers of butter and sugar, which results in a crunchy consistency that is very similar to a biscotti.  It is a great accompaniment to your morning coffee and is often eaten as as a quick merienda snack in between meals. 

In Iloilo, it is often paired with another local dish, the Pancit Molo, a wonton soup dish where the biscocho provides a sweet palate cleanser against the savory taste of the Molo soup. Don’t care much for biscocho, but still need to satisfy you sweet tooth cravings? Biscocho Haus is known not just for its namesake, but for other equally popular pastry items that visitors and locals alike keep coming back to again and again. 

One such crowd pleaser is their chewy butterscotch pastry, conveniently packed into bite sized pieces that makes it easy to store away in your luggage, and comes in various flavors, including mango, dates, and prunes.

Other sweets to try are sticky-sweet crispy banana crisps, locally known as pinagsugbo, and barqurion, a combination powdery sweet polovoron individually wrapped inside crunchy barquillos, a type of crunchy biscuit that is melt-in- your-mouth delicious. 

Milky treats like yema and galletas, and others confections like fruit tarts, piyaya (muscovado flatbread) and assorted breads and cookies are also available to enjoy.

Those who are watching their sugar intake will find other treats that veer toward the salty side of the taste spectrum, such as chicharon and garlic bread.
