“Do you know that the sweet-tasting “biscocho” of Biscocho Haus is a favorite pasalubong not only of Ilonggos but also of those who travel to Iloilo? The business was founded by Dr. Carlos Guadarrama and wife Therese Guadarrama in 1975.

This crunchy hard pastry is twice – baked, and is usually topped with sugar, butter, or garlic. Biscocho also goes well with a lot of beverages, especially coffee or hot chocolate.”
