G&B Buko Pie

1.) G&B Buko Pie had a different twist to the usual buko pie which had a think crust. Unlike the ones being sold in Tagaytay , Laguna or Quezon provinces. G&B buko uses thin layers of soft coconut meat or buko/buco with creamy fillings usually condense milk, sugar in between layers.

It used to be sold for just 3 pieces for Php 110.00 way back in 2007. But the prices increased several times. The retail price for their buko pie is ( Php 80 per box). Shelf life of these pie is between 2 to 3 days and best eaten hot.

The first time that i have tasted this delicacy was in 2007 when a friend from Nueva Viscaya brought 6 boxes of these pies as pasalubong.

G&B also had a restaurant and outlet pasalubong center in which the group had a brunch.
