Banh Pia Mekong (Durian Cake)

The Vietnamese Pia cake, which hails from the province of Soc Trang, is at the top of the Mekong Delta's must-try sweets list. It's a moon-shaped cake with a sweet, soft flavor and a thin, multi-layered wheat flour crust that's won over the hearts of everyone who's tried it.


This Soc Trang delicacy is composed of simple natural components such as mung wheat flour, beans, salted egg yolk, pork fat, but the most significant ingredient that gives it its distinct flavor is durian. They must, however, be carefully chosen because the Pia cake's expiry period is only a few days to two months.


There are several ingredients and steps involved in making a wonderful Pia cake, including cooking the mung bean, stirring-frying the ingredients, wrapping the dough, and so on, before baking and decorating with natural food colors. Locals usually cut the cake into 8 little pieces when eating it. It tastes excellent with green or ginger tea (a special tea in Soc Trang). You can easily locate it in any part of the province of Soc Trang and purchase Pia cake as a keepsake for your family and friends.
