We dropped by at Rowena’s Pasalubong Store before heading back to Manila from an event in Tagaytay. I bought Apple Tart, Choco Tart and my favorite Buko Pie.
I like the crust as it’s crispy and fresh. It’s unique from other buko pie but it’s just too sweet for my taste. The filling is not really tender or maybe, I got an old buko coconut meat.
It’s quite thick than the other buko pies I’ve tasted. It looks yummy but I still prefer the taste of D’ Original.
My own verdict: I rate Rowena’s 6/ 10. I still prefer D’ Original from Los Banos Laguna which I gave almost a perfect score of 9/10.
Other Buko Pies I tried:
My two kids on the other hand like buko pie from Rowena’s. What I like from their product is Rowena’s Apple Tart. It tastes great. I hardly eat apple pie or apple tart, only I remember eating a lot of apple pie when freshly baked during my Greece’s time. Rowena’s apple tart is yummy that you surely will find yourself having a bite after another bite.
