Buko Pie - Fresh coconut pie
I usually don’t like coconut unless my dad cooks it the Filipino way, like laing. I don’t like it how it is in Almond Joy or dry like that - Hopefully you know what I mean. But when I went to the Philippines for the first time in 13 years in January, I was willing to try everything and anything. I was a bit hesitant in trying Buko Pie, just because of the coconut in it. When I tried it, I couldn’t stop myself from getting more. It’s not how they do it here (in the States), it’s completely different and 10 times better! Now that I’m back in the States, I crave it and wish they had it here.
