The Baye-Baye is a concoction of roasted glutinous rice, coconut and sugar pounded or ground to achieve a unique palatability. Originally, it was introduced to the locality by the rice planting migrants from Ilo-Ilo. The Baye-Baye together with the crunchy Pinipig have become a favorite and popular merienda during or after a bountiful harvest especially during the “Tingkalalag” or All Souls Day and fiesta.
The Baye-Baye has become a welcome treat to visitors when they come to Bayawan and as part of the send-off gift when they are going to leave the city or as “Pasalubongs”.
Taste the Baye-Baye. Proudly Bayawanon!
