No one ever comes out of Negros Occidental without piaya. There are dozens of pasalubong shops everywhere you go, even at the airport! Why would you even think twice about sinking your teeth into this Ilonggo snack, anyway? Flaky flatbread cooked to a toast, filled with deeply sweet muscovado—it's addictive. We fill ours with ube to make it even more irresistible.
