Back about Jogja, as a tourist destination and a culinary city with a variety of knick-knacks, a lot of variety of information that we can use as a means of discussion. Well, this time we are not talking about a walk to the tourist attractions like the previous posts, but more about culinary. Surely we all know about this one food, small and cute form, usually bought to take home as a typical local food trend Jogjakarta. It also now has a variety of variations. I myself was initially just try to enjoy this food. As I recall, as early as enjoying this meal, I tried to enjoy that flavored green beans. Speaking of this food, surely friends all call it with “pia” or also called bak pia and is a trend in local food today.
There is an interesting thing during a visit to Yogyakarta with the family yesterday that incidentally, we were staying at an inn in Jalan Dagen near Jalan Malioboro Jogjakarta. At the time will go to Malioboro Street there is a booth that happens to sell bak pia. Bakpia is indeed different, it’s funny also with a distinctive taste bak pia with the name “Bakpiapia” This can be one alternative souvenir other than pia that had been there.
From the information of Bakpiapia outlet guard at Dagen Street, Bakpia is originally a bak pia produced home or can be called home industry which has been established since June 2004 at Jalan Sosro Meduran Yogyakarta. Only in September 2004 after the industry developed, the management of Bakpiapia contracted a small outlet at Jalan Dagen No. 7 (Front Hotel Whiz), Sosromenduran.
One more thing, there is a different make from bak pia that existed during this time, if during this bak pia in the box with a box with numbers. So in Bakpiapia is served with a fairly unique packaging. There are several types offered are bak pia single, mulatto and ampyang kepyar. For its kind because of quite a lot of its kind, I only remember that I just happened to buy. Incidentally, at that time we chose to buy local food trend bak pia single type of chocolate and green beans, it tastes quite good. For dry bak pia with chocolate, contents are offered at Rp. 38,000 per box. And can hold or strong up to 5 days.
So, for souvenir bak pia made by Bakpiapia is now also become an option for us. Especially now the outlets and outlets are getting more and more so we are not confused to buy it.
