Rowena's Buko Pie and Sylvannas

On our way down to Nuvali along Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay road, we stopped at Rowena's store to buy buko (coconut) pie. I have tried their buko tarts before, but I'm not fond of tarts, so I like to try their buko pie instead and compare it with other buko pie brands.

Their buko pie is thick but with smaller diameter. The color of the top crust is just right. Aside from the mainly coconut taste, the filling has its distinct flavor, probably due to a yellowish ingredient that they use, which I cannot identify. The pie does not dry out and still tastes good, even when we ate the leftover the following day. At Php 170/box, its too expensive compared with my favorite Orient buko pie at Php 130-140 per box.

If I will rate the buko pies I tried from the best to average, below will be their order:

Orient Buko Pie of Los Banos, Laguna
Rowena's Buko Pie in Tagaytay, Cavite
Loumar's Buko Pie in Tagaytay, Cavite
Elvie's Buko Pie in Los Banos, Laguna
Colette's Buko Pie chain

We also tried a 16-pcs pack of Rowena's sylvannas out of curiosity. The filling has a nice flavor, but the crust that covers it is too thick and tough for our bites. It has a lot to catch up in quality from signature sylvannas of Sans Rival in Dumaguete City.
