well, i saw a nice surprise in the ref today in the form of a box of the “original” buko pie. (if i had a penny for everytime i read a sign bearing the name “original buko pie” each time i drove down south…) 😛 my personal preference is the colette’s brand (because it is on the sweet side) but since i haven’t had buko pie in a long time, the “original” is good enough. he.he.
of course buko pie is best eaten fresh from the oven, but given that wasn’t possible due to the three-hour distance from laguna to pampanga, i had to do with heating a slice in the toaster. one thing i missed while i ate this was some scoops of macapuno-buko pandan-ube combo ice cream. eating this a la mode with some dayap rind on top of the ice cream would have been the bomb!
