    • About

    This is the most famous dessert of the province of Laguna, south of Manila, where coconut country starts. We have many customers who come to the restaurant just for this dessert, and it is pure comfort food. We like to serve this pie with vanilla or purple-yam ice cream. You can make the filling a day ahead, refrigerate it, and let it come back to room temperature before proceeding.
