She brought 2 boxes of hopia for me! Well hopia means a good biscuit and very popular Filipino bean filled pastry. It is a Chinese puff pastry and the cake dough type which uses a soft cookie dough similar in texture and taste to the wrapper dough for fig newtons.
First I got a box full of hopiang mongo, which is the most popular and cheaper, I guess. It is filled with sweet split mung bean paste. It is round in shape and flaky.
I also got a box of Hopiang Baboy(pork) which is filled with a bread crumb paste studded with candied winter melon, flavoured with green onions and enriched with candied pork backfat. This is actually the first time I tasted this pork flavored hopia, well it's yummy.
