Bánh bía, sometimes spelled bánh pía, is a type of Vietnamese cuisine bánh. A Suzhou style mooncake adapted from Teochew cuisine. The Vietnamese name comes from the Theochew word for pastry, "pia". In Saigon the pastry is called “bánh bía” while in Sóc Trăng and Vũng Thơm it is known by "bánh Pía". Some Vietnamese call it bánh lột da, which translates to "peeling skin pastry", and those from the Bến Tre region call it bánh bao chi, which is the name for Mochi elsewhere in Vietnam.[1] Popular fillings include durian, shredded lard, salted egg yolk, mung bean paste and coconut.
