Trust me, you’ve never tasted Buko Pie ’til you’ve tried those from Los Baños, Laguna. There are two shops I can recommend and bet the taste and quality on: that of the Original Buko Pie, and Lety’s.
If you’ve got time to spare, go and take your place at the queue lining up to Original. But be warned, it can be a looooong queue especially on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. But infairness, in my more than 20 years buying from Original, I’ve always gotten them piping hot, fresh from the oven. If you can’t afford to wait, then head on over to Lety’s, not more than 200 meters away. Their buko pies taste different, but don’t worry, they are equally good. In fact, I know some who prefer Lety’s over those of Original’s.
Both of these shops are along the national Road in Bgy. Anos, Los Baños, Laguna. Do NOT buy from hawkers claiming they are Original ones; they will just disappoint you. Also, there are a lot of buko pie stores lining the resort-congested areas in Calamba, but if you can spare another hour or so, go and drive the (figuratively speaking) extra mile, and get the real ones in Anos. The trip will be worth it, guaranteed!
