Bacolod stories to read:

About Barquillos

Aside from our world-famous piaya flat cake, Bacolod City here in Negros Occidental, Philippines is also known for barquillos. Barquillos are long rolled wafers that form cylinders. The cylinders can be from six inches to a foot in length. Some are thin and small while others have thick layers and are very long.

Barquillos are often given to kids as snacks because they easily melt in the mouth. Plus, most of them have milk so it is a preferred snack by moms.

Additionally, they are so good with ice cream. You can use each barquillos roll to spoon the ice cream. Then you bite it off the roll as you eat the ice cream. Then you do it all over again. Yum!

Barquillos + ice cream = happiness.

Baquillos Spin Off

The spin-off of the barquillos is the barquiron–which are rolled wafers stuffed with polvoron.

The problem with barquillos is, it is very tedious to make. Skilled workers, usually men, face a hot griddle all day. They pouring batter on it to form a thin layer, cook it for a few seconds, then roll it into a steel rod.

There should be precision in doing this, as the thin layers can get burned easily. It will turn brown and won’t roll into tubes anymore. I think that the production of barquillos is both a skill and an art. It is also slowly dying because of not too many people are willing to do it anymore.

The Merzci Barquillitos

The second spin off of the barquillos at Merzci is the barquillitos. Based on the name, these are little versions of the barquillos. But while they are named that way, the barquillitos are made by a machine.

Additionally, the mix is altered a bit because they do not taste the same. Nevertheless, barquillitos has its own flavor and character that have made them an endearing snack.

These are small and crunchy and easy to eat because you can easily put one piece inside your mouth. It is unlike the barquillos that kind of disintegrates with each bite. With this one, you don’t have to cup your hands under your mouth with each bite.

On the other hand, the barquillos can get messy. Without proper care, most of them would end up on your lap.
