We left Starbucks 6750 at around 8am and arrived in Tagaytay around 9.30am onboard a mini-Bus. Our first stop is my favorite drive-thru buko pie tart place called Loumars.

This was our first public Tagaytay Food Tour after two successful private tours with Alveo (formerly Community Innovations). The first tour was for media as a marketing tour to promote Verdana Homes Mamplasan. We got rave reviews from both bloggers and media. It was followed by another successful tour with the top sales people of Alveo. Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walk fame is our official tour guide for the trip.

There are three buko pie places you should try: The Laguna Buko Pies which include Letty’s, Original Buko Pie and Collette’s; the Nueva Vizcaya Buko Pie; and the Buko Pie Tarts of Tagaytay. I was informed by Wendy that there is another popular buko pie in Iloilo which tastes like a bibingka. (Can anyone share details about this place?)

In Tagaytay, there are three popular brands of buko pie tarts: Loumars, Rowena and Amira. We always buy Loumars.

The secret to eating buko pies is that it should be eaten fresh out of the oven and bought from the source. A box of 9 buko crumble costs P130.

Thanks to Wendy, Andy, Dodgie, and Teng for joining us in all the Ultimate Philippines Food Tour!

  1. G & B buko pie is the best in Nueva Vizcaya.
    It’s the famous pasalubong in the province that even buses, on the request of the passengers, stop to buy the stuff in boxes.
    quite different from those sold in Laguna but equally good.

  2. Anton, the buko pie we were telling you about was from Nang Palang’s in Oton, Iloilo. Need to clarify (sorry, memory failed me when I told you about it): the buko pie itself was really good, with large pieces of buko flesh as filling. Nang Palang’s also makes a buko-filled bibingka…a real winner.

  3. I love BUKO TARTS! i have to try Lourmar’s..
    but my fave is ROWENA’s buko tarts (their ube tarts are yummy too!) and AMIRA’s! 😀

  5. Hi Anton,
    I was told that the buko tarts of Amira and Rowena are made by Amira. Rowena is just a distributor of Amira. So basically we have only two very good and worthwhile buko tarts in Tagaytay – Loumar and Amira.
