i'm not really a huge fan of Colette's buko pie... i was actually turned off when i cut the first and only colette's i bought during one of my Laguna trips before was only half filled with buko... but last month an officemate brought a colette's at the office and told us that it's already availble in zamboanga. i took one slice and surprised to see a different version of colette's... it's buko galore! and their pie here is only Php175!!! compared to the Php200+ in manila (even in laguna i guess).
so one weekend, we went out of our way to visit the store... they cook the pies there. good thing the displays were newly cooked so we got really fresh pies!
|it's a bit weird to find a Colette's sign here... hehe|
|good ol' classic Colette's Buko Pie!|
|they also have Buko-Langka & Buko-Pandan Pie variants|
|and the Buko Pie Supreme... i guess it's the topping that's different about this one. But i find this too much for me... so i'm sticking with the classic buko pie... :-)|
|Dulce Recuerdos de Zamboanga - name of the store. They also sell other famous food from various places.|
|they also have a packaged lokot-lokot! now aside from the usual barter's coco jelly this is something i can bring as pasalubong.|
|Colette's or should I say Dulce Recuerdos de Zamboanga's exact address. It's near Claret School.|
|just so you won't completely miss it, it's inside this building. the only building you'll find at the back of Jollibee-San Jose, Zamboanga City.|
